Really quality tennis. The two playing to the left of these guys were incredible. I'd guess these are the weaker players on each time.

Here's some video:

thanks for posting, man. I watched a tournament a couple weeks ago consisting of xavier, tennessee, indiana, among others at IU. Pretty high quality stuff.

Yeah. No kidding. The level of tennis here is just freaking unbelievable. I enjoy watching the varsity team train every day, 2-630. I thought that maybe in 5 years, I could work up to the 5.0 level, but after watching these guys play, I think it's also impossible. Too bad, but I guess a reality check was in order.

What was the deal in the first video with the 2 different guys wandering through the court in between points. Hell I'd have made sure to bean them with a ball if they pulled that on the public courts.

They are their respected coaches. And they're playing on private courts.

But I agree, it wasn't appropriate and I was surprised. Today I'll take lots of video of Harvard playing.

Great shot man. You should probably try and get the shakes down to a minimum though. It's always great to see high level collegiate players go at it. thanks

I'd suggest buying a monopod on the way to the courts. They are under $20 and really make it easier to hold your camera for long periods. I bought 1 to film my daughers concerts and it worked super.

How come a well funded university like Harvard doesn't have a webcam for the tennis courts ?

I would assume its not a Harvard match day, thus no need for web cam.

Usually, the coaches have to talk to each player as they break for each set. Walking across like that is the fastest way to get to the players that are on other courts. This is normal.

I actually know his fellow Freshman on ND, Michael Moore, we went to school together :)
