I don't think dismissing it as 'recreational tennis' is remotely accurate.
in fact, what does that even mean? When one of my former pupils is home from college in the states and we have a hit, is that 'recreational tennis'? He plays number 2 singles at a Texas DII school and I have a national open ranking, but there is nothing riding on it except for who buys the beer.
Yonex is trying to achieve something cool, and he moves ever closer to it, snide remarks about 'recreational tennis' miss the point by a very long way
Open level doesn't equate to professional levels in most cases.
But, yeah I apologize for not reading this post in depth..it's on me.
