“What can WE, schleppers and hackers, gain from watching the pro’s? Is there anything we can take away from watching Roger serve? From Nadal’s forehand (maybe even less likely)?” That question and comments below coming from fellow Newk Fantasy camp veteran, Marc Segan…
The two major hindrances to my personal recovery process are the recurring fluid around my lungs and really bad insomnia. According my son Chris, one of the contributing factors to my not being able to sleep could be Blue Light. But what is it and where does it come from?
We all know them… the players who always have a “reason” why they played poorly and lost. The sun. The wind. Loose/tight strings. Bad back. The list goes on and on; but it is the smarter player who just accepts their loss and learns from it.
Are there some players you actually prefer to play with/against and others with whom you would rather avoid sharing court time? Usually, it has less to do with their actual tennis skill and more how they ACT on the court.
Even the club player is comfortable poaching (cutting across the middle) after their partner serves and the returner hits their cross court shot. But it is the special player who is comfortable (and effective) making that same move DURING the point. When and how should you do it?
If you have watched any of the just-started Australian Open, you may have noticed something different …. There are ZERO lines people on the court! Every court is equipped with a HawkEye type system (maybe the actual brand) and it makes every line call. Is that better or worse than the “traditional” system?
Everyone who plays doubles has heard the saying, “Down the middle solves the riddle.” That usually is thought about while hitting groundstrokes at two players at the net; but according to one tennis pro, it starts with serve placement.
