    Tennis isn't getting bigger in the U.S. but the people that play it are. :)

    Interest in Pro tennis is putzing along, with extremely mild increases from low numbers.

    Interest in playing tennis is also on the rise, albeit at a better pace.

    Interest in Junior tennis is increasing, but until the US men get someone back in the top 3, it will be a slow increase at best.

    yes. the balls are getting bigger, so that the Americans can see and play the ball.

    ive been seeing college tennis on the big ten network in the u.s. but it is coverage of the men and women's ncaa finals so i doubt it will be a regular thing. side note: i enjoy the lower angle to the court and wider lens which makes me feel like im right there with the action versus the pro tennis camera angles.
