Why Men’s Tennis Popularity is On Decline?

Updated on August 27, 2010

Why Men’s Tennis Popularity is On Decline?

Tennis is one sport that basically appeared a long time ago. It constantly evolved and now we see a really fast and spectacular game when we watch TV. This is definitely true for women's tennis and men's tennis. Unfortunately there are not many that are still interested in playing tennis when we compare with the past. The reason why this happens is that other games tend to become more popular as they evolve. This brings in a question that is important. Can Men's Tennis lose all popularity?

The short answer to this is no. We say this as this is one sport that still stands out as highly popular. Even if the bigger financial power that different sports have did have an impact on the number of viewers, tennis still has a strong fan base. Unfortunately, after the retiring of Pete Sampras we saw a decline in USA popularity. Sports like ice hockey, basketball and baseball are more popular there. Europe comes with great news when talking about men's tennis. Here we have just one sport that is more popular: soccer. We can say that a lot of kids are starting playing tennis every day.

The biggest problem with Men’s tennis is that it lacks the excitement other sports have. Only some moments of the game will offer a great spectacle while the others can be considered dull. Endurance needed is always high and makes up for the fast paced action of other sports. Playing tennis for many hours is quite difficult. This is the main reason why the sport is to be popular in the future. Playing a game of tennis will improve your physical condition like few games can. To put it simple, in the future we expect that the collapse in men’s tennis popularity will continue but not to the degree of causing serious problems to the game. There will always be people playing and tournaments held.
