    Violating physics -- ball acceleration AFTER contact

    Let's put the ball in the vacuum, but for now, just stationary. Squish, release (symetrical release, not pushing against anything else), what happens as it straightens up? Sent from my SM-G965W using Tapatalk

    Violating physics -- ball acceleration AFTER contact

    After the last contact with the string bed is lost there's nothing left to further accelerate the ball. We could get fancy and speculate that IF the ball is still straightening itself, it could push the air behind it backwards and itself forward... BUT, the air in front of it is already trying...

    Tipsy retires from ATP

    My wife was a huge fan of Tipsa! He is a great, inteligent guy, made the most out of his abilities. Is this cool, or what? Has realy clean simple strokes. His backhand is a thing of beauty, especialy the mule-kick one. And then, some magic Sent from my SM-G965W using Tapatalk

    POG OS vs Radical Trysis 260 OS (Bumblebee)?

    I still think it was much easier for Rafa: Spanish 1st language at school, environment where Spanish is used "on the street", higher similarity of language. Katarina: Serbo-Croatian 2nd language at school, not used on street, lesser similarity. For Rafa it was natural, for Katarina a lot less...
