I would characterize the extreme focus required to play our "elitist" sport/game on a level with a performance which is also a competition--exponentially adding another level of pressure. In order to maintain the extreme focus, as well as to hear the ball coming off the racket requires quiet and concentration. A sudden out of place sound, like a baby's out-burst disrupts that. Ex-mayor Dinkens of NYC, went so far as to have the flight patterns changed near Flushing Meadows to minimize noise during the USO.

No, the facts are there, they are buried deep inside the soon to be enacted National Health Care Act--you'll see--I'm shocked you haven't read it in it's entirety.
