would you be able to practice your serve motion with snowballs that are around the same size as a regular tennis ball :confused:

No. Different weight.

Only if tennis balls routinely explode when you hit them.

Sure, if you want a fresh stringjob to go from 60 lbs. to 25 lb. in 4 shots.

I hope this thread never meets the delete monster. This is the greatest thing I have ever seen.

You could, but it would work better if you had Babolat VS strings.

Use optic yellow softballs. They last forever and are much easier to find after you hit them.

Why not use tree sticks and rocks. This was the combination that was used in the tv series Prince of Tennis for service training.

If you can achieve flawless unity you should be able to hit the rocks pretty hard with a tree twig with out the stick breaking and propell the rock pretty far too.

But don't eat the optic yellow snowballs.
Don't eat yellow snow in general.

Only if tennis balls routinely explode when you hit them.

I have a friend that once exploded a Dunlop ball with an overhead, splitting it right down the seams completely into two halves that went flying. Both halves landed in, so of course I gave him the point.

It remains my greatest goal in tennis to duplicate this feat.

Doing it with a snowball won't count though.
