Millions of people play tennis in our country as a result of the efforts of the USTA and its thousands of active volunteers.

Jenkins mistakenly assumes that something has happened to tennis. What has really changed is the fans. Today most of us are more attracted to a bench-clearing baseball brawl or a trash-talk-backed slam dunk than to the quiet grace of Stefan Edberg or the gutsy determination of Aaron Krickstein. Tennis may yet change with the times, but it will probably be to its detriment.

An OT to Remember
I enjoyed seeing the old photos of Bill Barilko and Bobby Orr in your article about overtime in the hockey playoffs (Love That OT, May 9). I was disappointed, however, by the absence of the photo of one of the most thrilling overtime goals in NHL history: the picture of Bob Nystrom, hands raised, with fans celebrating in the background, after he scored in Game 6 against the Philadelphia Flyers to clinch the 1980 Stanley Cup for the New York Islanders.
