    The Best Tennis Channels of 2022?

    Essential Tennis is at an all time low with their match play and commentary from Ian and a bunch of random fanboys. Also the talks they give to the camera after each change of ends - give me a break. As if they're some master tacticians LMAO.

    Can someone explain why "Year End #1" is even given the time of day?

    Maybe read my post again. I never said a year is 50 weeks Einstein.

    Can someone explain why "Year End #1" is even given the time of day?

    This seems like such a pointless statistic. Some people use this instead of weeks at #1, which makes much more sense. Why does it matter who is #1 at the end of the year? Someone could be #1 for 50 weeks and could drop to #2 at the very end of the year - they still had a better year than the...

    Fans need more solid arguments towards Djokovic’s claim to GOAT

    Someone who tried to murder a poor lineswoman cannot be considered the GOAT. Sorry!

    Doubles tactics

    How the hell do you win doubles matches when your net man just sits at the net and you end up rallying endlessly crosscourt with the enemy? I've resorted to being ultra aggressive and just going at the net man to either hit a winner or force an error, rather than simply looping the ball...

    Anybody else think today’s SF was a battle between ATP and WTA styles?

    I like the fact that Medvedev's style isn't a generic clone of everyone else's. His shots are very distinct and interesting. Goes to show there's no real one way to play the game.

    Driving through the ball at contact

    This is one of those things that everyone talks about but I'm trying to understand why/how it helps, because I feel that it does. The ball makes contact with the strings for only a split second, so what does "driving through the contact zone" do if the ball is only interacting with the racquet...

    Let's talk about the word "pusher"

    Ivan Lendl and Andre Agassi, both thought of as power players, but were both VERY consistent from the baseline. They did not make many unforced errors. You simply cannot be a successful player if you don't have consistency, no matter how hard you hit. Agassi actually dialled back his aggression...

    Let's talk about the word "pusher"

    Too many players get called a pusher - I guess by clueless fans who don't understand the sport. I've seen Nadal, Djokovic, Medvedev all get called pushers. To me, a pusher is someone who maybe is just starting out and say they're playing a competition, their strokes are horrible so they rely on...

    Murray's Playing Style

    You know someone doesn't play tennis when they moan about Murray "not aiming for the lines" and "only hits 2 feet in from the sidelines". LOL. Yes he's a smart player who understands the game. Unlike you.

    Possible to take away opponent’s fitness advantage?

    It's 2020, noone serves and volleys anymore. Grind crosscourt and get fitter.

    Post videos of yourself playing well.

    The guy TTPS is hitting with is a paid actor. You have been duped.

    Building the game around the forehand is the one way to become better?

    ok admiral bulldog im reporting back - I hope you're fast! Much easier way of playing tennis is to only hit off one side of the body I agree.

    Returner going to the back fence and delaying after I caught the toss

    Not sure why it's so difficult unless it's really windy, to toss the ball up a little and hit it. I see guys catching 30% of their tosses and it's hard is it. Can't you throw a ball? You know what else is annoying? These people with herky jerky service motions. Like I'm trying to...
