Suresh.. Alot of the players in the day had to work jobs, and play tennis on the side. Share accomodation and training facilities ect ect ect...

Today they get driven around, fly first class, stay in plush hotels, get massages, doctors, trainers, coaches ect ect ect.. And get paid an obscene amount of money to do so..

So yeah, I guess my rant was a little biassed? And I am not really that old too.. I just respect the past and what these guys did to make way for the people who play today!
