Ken Rosewall Unhappy with Australian Dominance Fading in Tennis

(This entry was originally posted in this blog on December 9, 2008 and the information is based on that time.)

Former Australian tennis legend, Ken Rosewall, has recently said that Australia will have to struggle to remain one of the top countries in the tennis world in the years to come. Eight-time grand slam title winner, Rosewall, was speaking after Sydney’s Olympic Park tennis arena was officially renamed as the Ken Rosewall Arena.

Ken Rosewall thinks that Australia needs to have a pool of quality players in order to remain among the elite countries of tennis world.

ABC reported:

“The years to come will be difficult for Australia to really get to be one of the top nations,” he said.

“We need much more than just one or two outstanding players.

“We’d like a lot of them to come through all of the one stage, so they can kind of feed off each other and kind of be competitive and bring Australia back to being one of the top countries in world tennis.”

Ken Rosewall is considered to be one of greatest ever tennis players in the history of the game. His outstanding backhand is considered to be one of the best in tennis. Rosewall was among the top 20 players from 1952 to 1977.

Australia is one of the most successful tennis playing countries in tennis history as the country presented many tennis stars both in men’s and women’s tennis. However, Australian players could not show any impressive performance in the major tennis tournaments over the last few years. No doubt, as a tennis legend, Rosewall is not happy to see the bad time of Australian players in world tennis. Now, let us see if Australian players can perform well in the years to come.
