    That should really hurt. Even my super slow serve once hit my friend's super fat tummy and he immediately fell down on ground.

    I guess that is what you call "aiming close to the hip". ;)

    That was actually pretty funny. Don't remember that. Well worth seeing now though. AA hit him square in the chest. LOL!

    No kiddin'...those tennis balls could be deadly.

    I remember smashing it right in my practice buddy's face once. It hit him square in the eye. He was wearing glasses at the time, and still ended up with a swollen eye, and had to take special eye drops for a week.

    When we looked at the glasses (its frame now completely distorted), there were actually strands of tennis ball fibers stuck between the actual glass and the frame.

    I really liked how Agassi ran over to see if Corretja was ok and helped him up.

    When I was little my dad nailed a ball straight into my eye and I couldn't open my eye for about 2 hours. Happened on another occasion to me as well.

    that point was a big turning point in the match, agassi was cruising, after he hit corretja he struggled & corretja came back to win the match.

    That had to hurt. But as they constantly tell me...if I play on top of the net, expect to get hit.

    That hit seemed accidental since he was on the run, but if it were Lendl, you would know it was on purpose. I've seen him hit several players on purpose.

    Speaking of Lendl, yes he use to do it on purpose. I think he use to say, "I didn't send him an invitation to come to net?", or something like that.
