Agreed...I found myself treating my recent KL, Malaysia sojourn as an opportunity to window-shop the local retail sports scene which pretty much centred on badminton, soccer and golf. I realised I'd be disappointed if I got hung up on finding good tennis stuff in a place without any tennis culture. Besides, it was near-impossible to find gripsizes beyond 1/4.

I found myself venturing away from the glitzey malls and sports stores within them, and exploring Chinatown. There, I had fanciful hopes of taking a wrong turn down a street and entering a back alley known to locals as "Tennis Gear Alley" and finding mom and pop shops offering the Mother Lode of new old stocks
