    Topspin slice serve?

    So there's very few threads on this serve, could be wrong but seems like high level women's players use this serve among others, I'm wondering why it's not more popular/ discussed more? Couldn't really find any videos on it through you tube either. I've been trying to hit a kick serve for...

    Do stringers have to replace broken strings?

    This is the right answer. If you bring the string you own it and that's the price you pay for not buying the string at the shop. I have a stringer now but prior to that I had this happen a few times. I just accepted that I had to eat the cost of the string but the shop should re-string the...

    Is there etiquette in free hitting?

    When I'm free hitting I expect my partner to hit the ball back to me most of the time, otherwise it's just annoying. Now if he/she wants to go for a winner every once in a while that's fine but if it gets excessive I will say something.
