American tennis player, 12th racket of the world Tommy Paul spoke about how popular tennis is in the United States of America.
“Tennis is probably about the 20th most popular sport in the United States. Nobody cares about this, although we have two players in the top 10 of the world rankings. So it’s really good that we’re at the top of the game. “I mean, all of our best athletes play other sports, so that’s our excuse, I guess,” Paul was quoted as saying by The Tennis Letter.
Let us remind you that yesterday, October 7, a match took place in the second round of the Masters 1000 tournament in Shanghai (China) between the American tennis player Tommy Paul (12th racket in the world) and the representative of Austria Sebastian Ofner (49th racket in the world). Paul won a landslide victory and advanced to the third round of the tournament in Shanghai.
