I think all of those terms apply. Lack of risk (endless topspin crosscourt groundstrokes w. high safety margin.....yawn), and lack of creativity and imagnation by one dimensional baseline play to a large degree. baseline play could be interesting if it wasnt dominating the sport (ie a baseliner vs an all courter or serve/volleyer...think Agassi vs Sampras)....now we essentially have one baseliner going aganst another w. very few exceptions.....It seems to even be boring to many of us who are actually very interested in the game....pro tennis is turning into NASCAR from a viewing standpoint....if NASCAR can be wildly popular why cant T be at least semi popular?
