Sports Letter: Bashing bore

Sir: Calling the men's Wimbledon final boring is an understatement - Sampras and co are enough to make sleeping pills obsolete.

I don't know what can be done to stop terminator tennis but I do know what I can do and that is to ignore it in the future and watch paint dry. Wooden rackets and a serving line back from the baseline would not save the game from wooden players who possess the personality of planks]

The reality now is that the game is so impoverished of poetry that when Agassi exits he takes any interest and entertainment value with him.
