Hot weather, abrasive court, TALL guy, maybe 4-5' up the backboard.
Now you can hit a rock or something on a court and do it, but that's not really a consistent bounce, is it?
Nice motion, you're getting old, lost some pop and some lift.
You so sure about that Lee?
I was at Indian Wells watching a match against the back fence (seating) right above the middle line judge. Balls hit by Karlovic were almost getting us.
I can't say with certainty but I'd reckon that some would be hitting 7' up on a regular court fence.
I've done it before, but I think it hit a pebble in the service box.
