    It seems like whenever I play tennis in windy conditions it really seems to bother me. while my opponent or opponents don't even act like it bothers their game in the least. I do use a lot of touch shots and that may be my problem. How do you guys handle playing in windy conditions without letting it get to you?

    A not so parallel universe...
    All I know is that it's only windy on MY side of the net. It is a phenomenon that I have yet to explain.

    I, too, am bothered a lot by wind. I suspect this is because I hit relatively flat balls that are very low over the net - therefore even a slight variation - created by the wind on the ball, or my late reaction to a ball whose trajectory has been altered by the wind - tends to take the ball long, or into the net more than is usual.
