    Watching Barcelona on The Tennis Channel and seeing the ATP logo displayed on the net and backdrops, I was wondering what the tennis fans on Talk Tennis thought about the ATP's plans to change the logo next year, from the Pete Sampras-like service motion to a Rocky-like hands over the head in triumph pose instead?

    Hi Ford. :)

    I haven't seen the new logo, but it sounds kind of generic and possibly less 'powerful' by your description. That might be a personal bias though, serving logos and BH volley logos are my preferences, they seem to give the strongest feeling of 'action'. If that makes sense.

    A logo should make you think of the best part of a brand. A non tennis specific
    drawing doesn't work for me.
