    It's too bad the sport of tennis have idiots working in the marketing department. Face it, when was the last time you saw a tennis-related commercial? Better yet, when was the last time that you saw a tennis-related commercial that made tennis look cool? No, showing pros' primal facial expressions is not cool. And twirling some racquet/shoe doesn't make me want to buy it...

    I could envision someone like John McEnroe playing the part of Bill Russell:

    "What these young bloods have to understand is: that this game, has always been, and will always be, about winners"

    I don't know who I'd want to play the part of Uncle Drew. I'm obviously bored, and I hope you are too! :) Any suggestions?

    These are great commercials. Part 1 and 2.

    Personally I think DJO would be great and he already has a sense of humor. But would love to see Fed and Nadal or Bryan boys challenge some locals in dubs.

    Yeah, that would be pretty funny. Several years ago I sanbagged in a city league here, playing in a lower division than I should have because some friends asked me to be a ringer. I said ok, but I'm going to use a wood racket and wear long was pretty fun.
