    Dispute over water break

    Yeah, I'm pretty surprised he was allowed to play. I'm sure there are two sides to every story, but I think would've been a good idea on his part and USTA to let the situation get sorted out first.

    Dispute over water break

    Hopefully he is banned from USTA after this. He's been in a league I'm in the past few years. Luckily, I've never had to play him but heard from others who have that it is an unpleasant experience.

    4.0/4.5 Hitting Partner in Las Cruces, NM?

    "I joined a D.C. tennis league thinking I’d make a few friends. But this was no social club.."

    The league he is talking about is not a USTA league. It's a local "flex" league. There are several these in the DC area. There is some overlap between them and USTA, but for the most part I'd say more people play/prefer USTA here.

    Essential tennis NTRP 5.0 Tennis match play

    The point @1:44 is pretty good. I think Scott has a nice backhand. His serve seems a little off. Like he's hitting it on the way down and he's a little over-rotated? Ian's game might not look pretty, but I think he's crafty player who gets to a lot of balls (and has a tricky left serve on top of...

    The serve is not a throwing motion

    When this guy first started doing YouTube videos, I thought they were great. But it's clear that he's about the clickbait now. Also, all of his strokes look clunky and inefficient. I'm not saying he's not a high level player/coach, but his understanding of the technique is a bit flawed...

    ATP current top 5 servers at 6'1 (185 cm) or under at the moment

    Kohlschreiber and Dodig (mostly a doubles specialist now) are underrated.
