A good player of elder years giving me tips insisted that only maybe 150,000 gals in the ENTIRE US play tennis regularly in season. He said once a week or more every week, not only 3 times in summer. 150,000 out of what, 100,000,000 aged 8 to 80? They say 5 million gals play soccer aged 8 to 21. Is tennis this unpopular? He also claimed many tennis regulars are now over 60. Is it so dead a sport for women here. Local college can't even find U.S. gals for #1-3 singles to make a good team!
