Transcripts

Speaker:

If you were king of tennis and you could change anything, whether it was just the Atlanta

Speaker:

area or the United States or all over the world, whatever scale you have, is there something

Speaker:

you would change?

Speaker:

Is there something you would do as king of tennis?

Speaker:

I would try to make it more of an accessible sport to everyone.

Speaker:

You can't just pick up a rack.

Speaker:

You could, you need some instruction.

Speaker:

You need some instruction too, but you can just go to the basketball court and shoot

Speaker:

hoops.

Speaker:

It's different.

Speaker:

I would try to make tennis more if I were the king of tennis.

Speaker:

I would make it more accessible to all different types of demographics that don't have access

Speaker:

to it or easy access to it.

Speaker:

That way, especially in the States, if you make it more accessible to a greater pool of

Speaker:

people, obviously you're going to have more talent that comes out of there.

Speaker:

I guess speaking in terms of the United States, you made it more accessible and you get

Speaker:

more athletes.

Speaker:

It's not just a sport for the elites, then that to me would be great.

Speaker:

There's plenty of things you could do.

Speaker:

Some kids get burned out of tennis because it's such a mind game when you're out there by

Speaker:

yourself.

Speaker:

I know I've self-destructed many a time when I was a junior.

Speaker:

I was thrown in my racket, broken rackets, but never as an adult.

Speaker:

No, never.

Speaker:

Okay, good.

Speaker:

No, neither.

Speaker:

All the other kids at your home.

Speaker:

I think then the sportsmanship, etiquette, crazy parents, I changed all of that and when

Speaker:

I changed all of that, just take the pure joy and excitement that I get from tennis

Speaker:

just hitting a clean forehand for a winner.

Speaker:

Being able to get people to have that as well without all the other crappy things I just

Speaker:

mentioned, that come along with it, come along with tennis.

Speaker:

I guess that would be it.

Speaker:

I'd make it more accessible to people that don't have access or easy access to it.

Speaker:

and you know, subtract all the crappy things
