    The community activity has moved to Facebook and Twitter. People don't need to be in physically proximate to stay in touch.

    I really don't think the dip in popularity here in the states is the result of moving from wood to composites, when Sampras was playing Agassi during their hey day the local courts in my town were very busy. The culprit I believe is the lack of top notch American players in the mens game.

    I have no problem with the pros using modern racquets as some of the most compelling matches I've seen have been played with modern equipment e.g. Nadal/Fed 08 Wimbeldon, Wilander/Lendl 88 US open and many more. When great players meet on the court its always possible that a "Classic" match could result no matter what type of equipment is being used.
