NOT the same as WD-40 for chrissakes which is mineral oil (and solvents).

EDIT:

I do have one issue with the whole story. The article here (http://engineeringsport.co.uk/2012/0...out-of-control) talks about it, and says this:

"Advances in racket technology and increases in ball speed donít favour the traditional (and arguably more exciting) player who attacks the net and plays off the volley."

I'd have to disagree and say that serve & volley is not "more exciting" than baseline bashing. The ITF, ATP, and everyone else dread going to back to men's serve & volley tennis. Crowds love to see 10, 15, 20-shot rallies, not serve-return-smash over and over again. Which is why the people in charge have done everything they can over the past two decades to (rather successfully) eradicate S&V from men's tennis.
Yup, its $2.99 to be exact. Cheers!
