I'm 1 set, 5-0 down, I whip out my iPhone Wildcards and he doesn't win another point!

    That is a really odd video. Off-hours tennis hipsters staging midnight matches? What's with the huge chalkboard?The guys who are playing are just way too narcissistic to sweat, I guess. Or to dress for tennis. I'm thinking that they might be rejects from auditions for a Tommy Hilfiger commercial. My kids found this equally amusing.

    Goofy video full of unlikable people (I wouldn't want anyone climbing a fence to sneak onto my tennis court late at night), but still kind of creative, so props for that.

    Bigger issue: I can't imagine an app like this being useful to anyone above a 2.5.

    There's a brilliant piece of advice in the video that I hope everyone noticed: 'On the first short ball he hits, kill the shot'. Well thanks Einstein, I never would have thought of trying to kill a short ball.

    I always try to kill the short ball. I miss 50% of them. Thus, I am a 3.5. You got an app for that???

    Half of the WTA tour doesn't know that.

    I'd imagine it would be difficult to play tennis in near-darkness.

    I don't think I should express my real feeling about this video...
