Britain’s LTA Is Hoping For A Surge In Tennis Interest From Murray’s Win
Andy Murray finally a Grand Slam champion as well as an Olympic gold
medalist, Britain’s tennis chief is hoping the success of the Scot will
jump charge tennis in his home nation and turn around a decline in the
number of adults actually getting onto court.
Lawn Tennis Association chief executive Roger Draper has been fighting a
tough battle recently. Government funding for tennis was cut by Sport
England in April due to disappointing participation figures. In total
£530,000 was shorn following 25% in the number of British adults playing
the sport since 2008.

few months have been great for me, but, you know, there is more to the
tennis tour than just the Grand Slams," said Murray after overcoming
Novak Djokovic in five sets in New York.
Roddick’s Appearance Sold Tickets
US Open got a modest boost from ticket sales as it hosted what turned
