New Delhi: Tim Henman, one of the most successful players of England, says the present era is toughest in tennis but rued lack of courts that encourage serve and volley game, of which he was a great exponent.
Henman, who retired in 2007, said it is a great challenge for players to come on net these days when the most of the game is restricted to powerful strokes from the baseline.
"Game has changed so much. I stopped in 2007, now the surfaces are slower, the balls are heavier, so it is harder for players to come on net. The players are so athletic, they hit the ball hard, they return well that makes it even hard to come on net. It is such a challenge, game is fast but it's still good to watch," Henman told PTI in an interview.
