    That's very strange there. It seems that it's a club having a tournament of some sort and the younger players of the club are ball boys for the matches of the older players :eek:

    That video has been posted before. It is a qualifier for a challenger event. There were long threads on this and on other forums making fun of the guy with the weird serve. Someone looked up his record and he played like 2 qualifying events getting double bageled each time. He must know somebody or paid off the TD to get a WC for the qualies.

    Yes, this is a unique find.....a French guy who lacks style. EDIT: actually, I take it back. The guy is fairly smooth for a beginner. He even slid well once, and looks like he enjoys hitting BHs. He'd do better in a small club tournament.

    Actually, the other guy looks like a player. Goober's got it right. The opponent mercifully made some of the rallies longer than they needed to be. Probably just trying to get a groove...treating it like a warm-up.

    A lot of clay courters just "put the ball in play" with their serve. That guy's serve looks like one of those to me.

    As for the rest of his game....?
