Nice vids, I'm just trying to go through them just now.
Ps. Couldn't stop laughing at you chris with "And remember like Bethanie, Style IS important!"

Pretty good...

I like the real tennis q's (Gonzales); current stick, string tension, brands, etc.

Would be great if they asked the questions real players are curious about instead of the formula q's always asked by the TV guys...

TW rules!

DarkTennis 09-28-2007 11:04 PM

The Jill Craybas tip was a good one. The person at the net should always assume they are going to get the next ball. I have personally had this problem because folks tend to not hit to me when I'm at the net, so I get a bit lazy. Someone will float a ball by me at times because I'm day dreaming. LOL!

Hi Robert,

My problem is that often I'm too aggressive at net. :)

Good if you convert most of the shots. Bad if it makes your partner having to cover more ground. :(

Ross, when you click TW's page of videos
http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Next...l?ccode=TNL008

The first video tries to load immediately. You have to press PAUSE. To get to pause the video just press the only button there, the play/pause button. Now... wait. The video when paused will load in the background. You will see the progress bar fill up. When it's about halfway press play. If the play head catches up with the progress bar at any time you may get jerky play again. So press PAUSE and let the file load in advance of the playing head (which is the little slider you see advance left to right as you play). Ok?

Chris, TW.

I love the doubles tip from jill craybas and Granville. they look so cute together. I love the Chicago Cubs workout t-shirt Laura was wearing.. it looks so cute. and Maria Sharapova was in the background with her father. Maria looked like she wanted to get in and give her own doubles tips, though she never plays doubles.... ;) and Jill's laugh was so cute as well when she was asked if she could give any tips to the amateurs.....haha:grin:

Check out Tursunov video, very funny. he saids one of his hidden strength in his game is his mental strength. and sometimes he has to actually play Boring tennis, like he cannot go for a winner on every shot like he likes to do.

or what racquet he is not using, but that we should go out and buy, because it looks cool :-)

Could you ask some better questions?

You ask Hantuchova how important is conditioning to tennis and Mardy Fish how important is it for him to serve at a high percentage.:shock:

The issue with asking very specific and detailed questions to players is that players are not always able to articulate about what they are doing. Many just do it. The most articulate about their game I have seen is Agassi, and that has been only in interviews.

Also, many of those players had just been practicing/training. Who wants a tough question after that? TW would not want to scare players off from speaking with them ever again.
