Capitalize On Your Strength
On a windy day, one side says that you should have your stronger server take advantage of having the wind to his back – and make his strong serve even stronger. And then take your chances with the weaker server hitting into the wind.
Minimize Your Weakness
The other side says that the stronger server can push through the wind; but the weaker server can use the help – and maybe hold that service games more often than he would have.
The sun may be a different issue. Can the “stronger server” by definition better handle changing his toss to deal with the sun in his eyes? If so, maybe he takes the “bad side” and lets his partner have an easier time serving.
Or, do you now lose whatever serving advantage you had; and now have TWO weaker servers?
What do you think??
Bryan Brothers Bubble Burst?
If you watched some doubles from Indian Wells, you may have seen the incredible… the Bryan Brothers blowing SEVEN CONSECUTIVE MATCH POINTS.
They were up in the Match Tiebreaker at 9 points to 2 … and then lost seven consecutive points. They actually slightly recovered and had one more match point (at 11-10?) and also lost that eighth one.
They survived two match points against them; but finally succumbed 14-12.
