    String Tension and Serve

    I'm agreeing with this after hitting with a lower tension racquet for a couple of sessions. I found that with the higher tension it just "feels" better and more natural to me and I definitely have better control over my shots. If I want to get more pop, I can do so by working more on technique...

    String Tension and Serve

    But wouldn't that be counterintuitive if I'm hitting a spin serve? Or am I thinking about it the wrong way?

    But even on serves?

    String Tension and Serve

    I just got my racquet restrung at a lower tension and my serve was off (even though it didn't feel like it). I hit mostly spin serves but a lot of them were going up to a foot long.

    String Tension and Serve

    What impact does string tension have on your serve? In my 5-10 minutes of extensive internet research, what I found spoke mostly about groundies. Is it the same where lower tension = easier power on the serve and higher tension = easier spin?

    Seeking responses from 4.0s, please? 3.0 having better success playing 3.5 Leagues. Why?

    The best question to ask yourself is "why/how am I losing?" The words Depth/Pace/Put Away/Winners and the 3.0 rating don't really mix. Consistency is king at the lower ratings, if you are able to get 3-4+ balls over the net you will be winning the majority of your matches. I'd venture a guess...

    Would you do this?

    The only time I felt a type of way about a underhand/drop serve is if the server doesn't give you time to set yourself, similar to how some people miss their first serve and then try to quickly take their second serve as you are resetting.

    In or Out?

    I think it was just a bad day. We play all the time and this wasn't a league or anything. That's why I was questioning myself because usually we're fine and I'd be disappointed if I was doing him dirty.

    In or Out?

    Do you call those serves out or play them?

    In or Out?

    You're right. I'm dancing around the wording because I feel for the situation and am trying to look at it from both sides with the perspective that either of us could be wrong. When I made the call in the match I was 100% certain that I saw it out no debating. Also had a play on the ball, it...

    @S&V-not_dead_yet how far in did you see it?

    In or Out?

    Wouldn't the net strap be blocking his POV then? Usually I do give the benefit of the doubt or at least ask what they thought. On this one I was certain enough to where I didn't have doubt when I made the call.
