Following Andy Murray's defeat in the Wimbledon final, can British tennis take advantage of his performance in the final?
Tony Hawks, who co-founded charity Tennis for Free, points out that one must remember that Andy Murray trained in Spain so "he is not a product of the British system at all".
He told the Today programme that one of the problems with British tennis is that it "tries to train people that just haven't got the the flair that other people do... Not enough sportsmen pick up a tennis racket".
Roger Draper, CEO of the Lawn Tennis Association, says tennis club membership "at the moment is absolutely booming".
"I think with patience you will see a hell of a lot of progress in British tennis in the next two to four years," he told Evan Davis.
