Nike probably wont push hard into tennis again until a new super crop of American players comes into play ala Agassi, Sampras, Courier etc....
Who says tennis is shrinking? From what I see they're pushing the tennis ranges as much, if not more, than in recent years.

Stores in Melbourne, Singapore, Bangkok and NZ I've seen in the past 3-4 months have all had significant tennis displays - some for the first time that I recall seeing them there (Bangkok and Singapore).
