In somewhat related news, Simon Briggs at The Telegraph has penned an interesting critique of the institutions governing professional tennis:
When it comes to power, tennis has always been a mess. Apparent conflicts of interest are routine. Take the number of leading commentators who also have commitments on national boards or with super-agencies such as IMG.
Why doesn’t anyone object? Because they are all part of the “tennis family”, a phrase you hear constantly. And most families, as we know from experience, are beset by little alliances and tensions that keep everyone stuck in one place.
