    Is the need for a fairy tale happy ending an American thing?

    It wasn't Americans boo'ing Tiafoe for trying to win.

    Laver Cup 2022

    Forehands in the middle. It’s the way the Bryan brothers always played.

    Line call pet peeves

    The best part of clay court tennis is not a lot of line call disputes, but we had an opponent in a doubles league match last week call a ball out that was clearly half on the line. We could see the mark from our side and told him it was a really bad call and that he can check the mark after the...

    Mac says Iga was borderline cheating.... I think not.....

    I think it should be considered a hinderance. But it's not "cheating" if the umpires clearly see it and choose not to award the other player the point.

    Help with OHBH height/depth control - with video

    I haven’t read through all the comments, so apologize if I’m repeating anything already said, but an easy queue on making sure you are probably getting the full take back is to keep your head facing the ball and turn your body enough that you can place your chin on your shoulder. This should...

    Why exactly is Jack Sock always in Laver Cup?

    Are they going to replace Isner since he’s hurt? They need to add big Foe.

    Is it ok to swing the raquet on the wrong side of net.

    If the ball bounces on your side of the net and spins back over the net you can reach over the net to hit it. If you touch the net you lose the point. If you hit the ball out of the air on your side of the net and your follow-through takes you over the net to their side, that is ok. Again...

    Wawrinka or Roddick the superior tennis player?

    If not for Fed, Roddick would definitely have several more GS. Roddick lost to Federer in 8-grandslams. 4 GS finals, 3 semifinals and 1 quarterfinal.

    I wouldn't say Alcaraz is finished, but is he not as good a player as we initially thought?

    He lost a final. Not like he was bounced in the 1st round. He is still 41-7 YTD, which is not bad for a 19 year old. Yes, anyone who thought he would win every single match this year over hyped him.

    Medvedev Enters His 10th Week at #1

    Wimbledon doesn’t count, so of the one’s that count Med, Nadal and Djok all have 1.

    Can only the "entitled" in America become top tennis players?

    The 100th best tennis player in the world barely makes a living. The 100th best baseball or football player might be the best player on their team and making 10M per year. It’s a calculated risk for the highly atheletic kids.

    Serve Advice

    A couple things: - Your arm motion is very smooth. - Your unit turn is good, but you come out too early and all your weight then goes on your front foot. This is what is causing your front foor to slide forward. Try practicing serving with your front foot slightly off the ground, which...

    Serve worse on clay courts?

    It’s probably in your head. Spin and placement matter more on a clay court, because serves tend to slow down and sit-up more than on a hard court. I generally don’t hit a flat serve when I play on clay except as a change of pace. Try to focus on putting more slice and kick than you normally...

    Life after Srsh Thread

    What is this place? And why did I just stay up all night reading 400 pages of gobbledy-gook?
