    I just saw a clip of the wheelchair tennis tournament. It was very entertaining and players had to work hard. I thought it was too bad that there is very little shown of it. At least not over here :wink: :(

    What do you think. Should this kind of sports/events be shown more on tv?

    Wheelchair tennis players are very tough to beat for the club player. WC players are allowed 2 bounces so dropshots aren't a good option. They usually play well behind the baseline so unless you can get very good angles on them, you'd have a tough time.

    I think it would be cool if they used motorized wheelchairs instead of normal ones.

    Think of all the tuning rules that would be in place all of a sudden then, lol. We could call it Ten-Nas-chair :)

    Percentage play would almost be too definite outside of superb prediction ability.
