I really feel that tennis, if this is possible, suffers a real visibility letdown between Wimbledon and the Open. Given the NFL, NBA and NHL are not in action, this should really be a time where tennis can fill a void in the sports calendar.

What are 3-4 marketing fixes tennis could make to raise it's profile during this part of the year? There's a partnership at McKinsey in it for you. --Neil Grammer, Toronto

1. Overachieving Andy: We've heard for years about what Andy Roddick isn't. He isn't Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal. He isn't a stylist. He isn't a multiple Grand Slam winner. He isn't a clay court specialist. Maybe it's time we recast the discussion and talk about what Roddick is. He is someone who has spent almost an entire decade residing in the top 10. He is a limited player who has done everything in his power to improve. He is a fighter. He is a professional who takes his career seriously and ambitiously. He is a mensch -- the most recent evidence being his participation in the Champions for Chile fundraiser on the eve of the Key Biscayne final. He is also a 27-year-old playing perhaps the best ball of his career.
