Tennis is a white dominated sport because it still involves competitors who come from upper class backgrounds with more money and access to transport to go on tours around their countries etc... There isn't enough funding in areas with ethnic minorities that tend to be poorer. The Williams sisters are an obvious exception.
"Sometimes it feels like you're not on a tennis court, the amount of noise you guys produce and for us it's a great feeling. It's a pleasure playing in front of you. It's my great privilege to be standing here in front of one of the greatest players ever, Rod Laver. "

I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg
