THE WORD ACCORDING TO MCENROE: TENNIS NEEDS HELP IN USA
Published June 27, 1995
During a conference call on NBC's Wimbledon coverage, John McEnroe addressed the state of tennis in the U.S. He noted that tennis is much more popular in Europe and that the game is seen here as an "elitist sport." McEnroe: "Here they put you in basketball, football, baseball, and maybe even a couple of other sports before tennis." McEnroe said tennis should look at the way both pro golf and the NBA reach out on a grassroots level and get involved through charity work. McEnroe: "People need to see these people (tennis players) in person, see that they're human beings. Now they just see them going from city to city playing in tournaments and that's boring" (THE DAILY). SHOULDN'T THAT DESIGN BE AT FLUSHING MEADOWS? ESPN's Ketih Olbermann, on the new roof over Wimbledon's Stadium Court: "It looks like a commode" ("SportsCenter," 6/26).
