    I experienced a 125-130mph serve

    I've experienced a 125-30 mph serve as well (or maybe it was merely in the 115-20 mph range). However I experienced it hitting me solidly in the back. OUCH! Just grateful that my partner didn't hit me square in the kidney or somewhere equally sensitive. Very big server but he was lucky to get...

    How to watch tennis tournaments (like the Masters) on Amazon Prime?

    @naturallight Have you had any more luck than I did with finding tennis coverage with Amazon Prime? Not seen any pro tennis on ESPN for a while. But I have been able to catch some live coverage of both ATP and WTA on TC Plus (I don't have regular TC tho). TC+ has also been providing replays...

    How to watch tennis tournaments (like the Masters) on Amazon Prime?

    Sadly, was not able to find any access tennis tournaments thru Amazon Prime. Access to ATP thru their Tennis TV app for $15/month. Did not see any discount for Amazon Prime membership.

    Extending the non-hitting arm towards the ball on the forehand. Does this make you (personally) hit the ball higher over the net?

    No idea how this arm extension helps with hitting higher over the net. Perhaps in doing so you are performing some other actions that are facilitating a higher net clearance (with more topspin).

    Extending the non-hitting arm towards the ball on the forehand. Does this make you (personally) hit the ball higher over the net?

    Which direction are you extending your non-dom arm? You say towards the ball. But at what point of the ball's flight? Is that arm pointing towards the net or is it pointing towards the side fence? Back in the 1970s it was common to point toward the incoming ball as it was crossing the net and...

    How to watch tennis tournaments (like the Masters) on Amazon Prime?

    After I saw your post, I poked around a bit. I came across the following: US owners (of Amazon Prime) get access to ATP's streaming service, Tennis TV. I'll have to give it a try later to see how this works...

    2019 Italian Open - WTA Thread

    The prize money for PM is more than double the money for P5. And all 4 PM events are required by the top players. With the 5 P5 events, they can chose. The singles main draw size for PM is usually 96 or 64 (but China might only be 60). The draw size for P5 is normally only 32 to 56.

    Nick should be suspended from the French Open.

    Not as bad as throwing things at ppl but Nick was guilty of court abuse (2 counts) as well as racket abuse and then chair abuse. (We'll overlook the abuse to the bottle or cup that he abused). He may or may not have damaged the chair and possibly gouged the court with his racket and the chair...

    Note that circular manhole covers do not need to be rotated to align with the manhole. This is why I indicated that Alignment was an excellent answer but not quite the top answer I was looking for.
