    Some videos of points, serve etc... because why not

    Why do you play with a dozen balls strewn all around the court? Here in the U.S., we generally open a new can of balls and play with 3 at a time...

    Which Pro Had the Most Low-to-High One-Hander? Any Tips On Hitting the Looper?

    Muster had a pretty vertical/spinny 1HBH for the technology of his day (pre-poly), might be worth looking into...

    tension for full bed gut ?

    Spin has more to do with technique, strings are secondary. For example, Sampras' second serve was recorded at 5,300 RPM with nat gut... https://tennisone.tennisplayer.net/content/Lessons/yandell/samprasserve/sampras.htm

    Can TE improve even though u keep playing?
