Tennisopolis : Tennis Social Network

I want all signs...really...prohibited from hanging on the tennis nets. The Rules of Tennis prohibit advertisements from being hung on the nets. Yet the all powerful advertisers manage to get the tournament directors and ITF (International Tennis Federation) and other tennis governing bodies to hang their logos on the nets. I wonder how many $$ they have to pay? Mercedes Benz and Lexus are really bad offenders. Their logos are often hung on the nets in the doubles alleys in tourneys. And corporate advertisers plaster all four sides of the courts in most tourneys. They even have their corporate names and logos painted on the court surfaces. When is ENOUGH...ENOUGH?? They are never satisfied! Even the ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) hangs big letters across the nets saying: ATP WORLD TOUR. If I was a player I would remove all that distracting GARBAGE from the net before I played a match. Then watch them HOWL. Compare the beauty and distraction-- free Wimbledon courts--free of all that GARBAGE....except for Slazenger on the umpire's chair and Rolex(?). How can we get them to remove their net GARBAGE?
