"We're speaking to perceptions our sport is still an elitist,
country-club sport," says Michelle Difilippantonio, senior
director for marketing at the tennis association in White
Plains. "Players like James Blake and Venus and Serena
Williams have moved the needle, but not enough, in our
opinion."

I love this - Blake is moving the needle away from elitist, country clubs ????? Blake has about as much in common with Venus and Serena as I do (he has a slight advantage on skin and hair, but I've got him beat on gender) (tennis skills aside of course).
