Pork And Beans Tennis

New technologies

both in rackets and

in athletes have made

tennis a new game.

Winners from behind

the baseline. Big serves

nobody can touch.

Strategies that win

even though players

may hit four dozen

unforced errors. Now

in more and more points

umpires will call ‘let’

and replay the point

when the tennis ball

transforms into a

can of pork and beans.

Sure it’s great TV.

But is it tennis?
