Does Marin Cilic represent the future of Tennis?

cilicCongratulations to Marin Cilic for winning the US Open title. Is he the shape of things to come in tennis? He has almost perfected the art of serving. With speeds of over 130 mph and incredible consistency he has shown that a big lanky guy can beat just about anybody. Even Roger Federer had no answer to Cilic’s overpowering service in their semi-final match. But can you envisage a match between two players of equal serving prowess? Four aces, game over. Four aces, game over! No rallies, no rushing the net, no volleys and sorry to say no excitement. Wake me up when it’s over.
If you have a promising kid who enjoys tennis then teach him or her how to perfect their respective serves and pocket a couple of million dollars a match. Or you could play virtual tennis on your computer and see actual robots playing the game.
