    Mathieu Montcourt passes away

    It can happen. If it truly was an embolus its possible he may have had a clotting disorder. Very sad though..

    Is bouncing the ball with the frame of your racquet any indication of tennis talent

    It takes a LOT of forearm muscle control as well. Its one of those things where if you are a pro its easy to do, but just because you can do it doesn't mean you're a pro! The other thing pros do great is hacky sack with a tennis ball.. this is really really hard. If you watch any sort of...

    Nadal's aura

    Nadal has had an aura for years too. Disagree with your statement; the great ones have the game to do damage well after their prime. See Becker, Lendl, and Sampras winning slams much later than their last one. Its too simplistic to say Federer relies only on ability and Nadal relies on...
