    Hewitt vs Calleri US Open 2007 - Calleri's OHB was at an incredible level entire match as was just about everything else, but this is just a great point eventually won by Hewitt on a pass.

    another good one at court level two points after as well ending with one of those laser backhands from Calleri

    I remember Roger finishing with a gorgeous match point against Melzer in that match. I'll check it out again :)

    This angle is by far the more interesting and to me, more valuable to someone who actually plays the game. The other angle you can't pick up as much. Putting the camera in a satellite is like when I watch golf, and after the player hits the ball, the camera zooms into the ball and tries to keep it in frame. I can't tell the ball flight from that haha

    One of my favorite tennis clips of all time. Those guys were playing ping pong in that clip.

    agreed, a couple rallies were really good, fast paced baseline play.
    yeah, from the higher angles, you can kind of tell when players put more air under the ball and when they flatten it out. this angle however, you can really tell how much air they put under the ball when the spin it deep compared to how flat they are when they go for winners.

    Not the USO, but here's a court level view of a match between Laver and Connors in 1975. You really get a sense of how flat Connors used to hit the ball as well as Laver's touch and reflexes at the net.

    If I want to learn something from the pros, court level is the way to go. But for just watching tennis, the normal TV angle is what I prefer
