Could this have had anything to do with the double-faults? Does it change the height of the net compared to a doubles net?
'Cause I blamed it on the singles sticks!
Singles sticks move the height of the net at the doubles sideline to the singles sideline.....the height at the strap is the same......as result the net is slightly higher everywhere but at the strap.......
Is it high enough to make a difference in recreational play? Maybe...Maybe not.....I think it was probably more psychological than anything else......
