    You guys usually have lawn/clay courts am I correct? We have hardcourts since our courts are in public parks and hardcourts are the cheapest to maintain. There are very few lawn/clay courts in the U.S.

    Different type of market. In other countries, tennis is still a bit of an elitest sport, and as such, the rich can afford shoes without warranties. More accurately, warranties won't increase sales so much that the reduced marginal profits will lead to reduced overall profits. It's different in the US. Tennis is really, not expensive. I'm sure warranties change buying patterns to the point that it's more profitable to offer them. The average man looks at small savings much more than the elite.
