Kenny022593, I have absolutely nothing to add to this, except that I graduated from RIT in '93 (Imaging Science) and played on the tennis team in '91 & '92. In fact, I grew up in Rochester (Chili, to be exact) & have family that still lives there (my in-laws live across from the school, just off River Road).
If you think tennis is bottom rung now, you should have seen it 20 years ago. We had to play some matches in a bubble right next to the old ice arena. It had lines for tennis, basketball, volleyball & a few other sports. The basketball hoops hung over the service line, so you had to slide a few feet right & left when serving or your toss would hit the rim. We used orange balls because the lighting was so bad, you couldn't see yellow ones.
Good times, good times...
