I try not to play tennis. Actual on court tennis experience would corrupt my perfect understanding of tennis.

In my mind, I've perfected the sport of tennis. For the remainder of my life, I will strive to spread my knowledge of tennis to all who will listen.

I'm glad to know that many other people have also found the true perfect way to play tennis and we are all here on the TW Forum to spread the truth.

It is obvious to me that if I were to purchase a tennis racket, one can of tennis balls and a pair of court shoes from Walmart, I would beat Federer or Nadal or whomever is on the tour.

I would like to make more perfect my tennis knowledge though. I know that if Roddick were to serve a 155 mph serve on the T on the deuce side, I can easily hit a 120 mph backhand slice that would land on the baseline, and have a max bounce height of 3 inches and can break 30 degrees either left or right. My question is does any one here know if they can hit the slice faster than 120 mph and have the ball bounce 2 inches? I've done simulation in my mind but I can not get it to work. Thanks in advance.

Nothing is better than making your opinions as facts and trying to play the least amount of tennis as possible on tennis-warehouse.

too bad knowing and doing isnt the same thing eh? if one can easily transfer their mental abilities to physical then there wouldnt be such thing as practice.

Actually playing tennis is like 7 billion times better than watching tennis on tv. If i get the oppurtunity to play tennis, i turn of the tv right away even if safin, federer, djokovic etc are playing.

Maybe you should turn off your computer permanently and spare us of your weak posts. lol

No, no. I engage in mental practice all the time. I've been hitting that 120mph backhand slice return and they are all painting the baseline. I can place them within a dime but as I've stated before I can't get them to go faster than 120mph and bounce lower than 3 inches. Trust me, I mentally practice a lot.

As I type this reply, I just made 20 slice backhand drop shot return. They clear the net and have so much backspin that they bounce backwards and hit the net and roll down for a return winner. What I would like to do is hit the drop shot but instead of having the ball spin backwards, it would spin sideways towards the nearest ball kid kneeling along the netpost so they would not have to move to pick up the ball. These are the kinds of considerate tennis playing that I'm trying to perfect.

Wow, coming from the most intellectually impaired poster on this board. One who knows nothing about tennis and claims he knows more than the pros about tennis and gives BS lessons on physics, a subject he obviously has no clue about. How about this. Get your fat *** of your computer and go out and do something productive with your life rather than watching nadal on youtube all day.

When I played, I practiced anywhere from 2-4 hours a day, and I also played a ton of tournaments. :(

I'm glad I don't play anymore. I focus on schoolwork, now.

Hmm... 1-4 hours. I'm lucky if I can play for 1h 30m on synth grass, it's that difficult to find a cheap and good court around here. :(

When bk home 3hr/session 2-3 times a week (not incl. any usta matches).
On the road I seldom play but still 2-3hr sessions when I can get on a court,
so I only do gym daily (1-1 1/2hrs) and some swimming .
