    Yeah the fancy term for it is dynamic stretching, if I am not mistaken

    I was surprised to see Sharapova returning Serena's practice serves.

    Presumably she didn't spray them all over the court, and not once did she scream when she hit them back.

    So I guess that's okay then.

    Someone should speak harshly with her about that.

    Not the same .... if you give me a handful of ball boys to track down your errant returns then go ahead. Otherwise, put them in your pocket.

    Had a league match last night......

    While warming up, my opponent hit short slices on almost every ball and I would let every one bounce twice before hitting them back. He didn't get the hint. I hit EVERY ball back to him with a deep, topspin shot and he proceeded to slice everything back short.

    Very aggravating.

    I understand if you dont hit with topspin, but hit the ball deep to me at least. I am not going to charge in over and over to play your short slices.

    Did he continue to play that way after the match started? Just curious if he was being deliberate or simply had no other shot.

    And hitting short slices is worse than hitting deep topspin during a warmup because?
