Tennis could "grow the game" if it would change the nomenclature from the present day pejorative of "seniors" to "masters" like swimming, golf and other sports do. I'm convinced that a lot of women especially, refrain from playing in the seniors age group tournaments because they don't want to disclose their age. In Kali, where it's against the law to grow-up, NO ONE wants to be associated with anything with "senior" in it--their skateboarding licenses may be revoked.
