    David Ferrer

    I think it's incredibly impressive that Ferrer is still in the top 10. With his grinding style his body must take a huge toll compared to a lot of other players and I think it really goes to show just much fight he really does have.

    How many times has Kei Nishikori retired?

    A lot of respect to this guy and he's playing some great tennis. Great to see him consistently going far in tournaments but it seems like he retires left and right.

    State Singles Tournament

    Last year I didn't even qualify for the round of 48 in our state singles tournament and this year I made it to the round of 16 and ended up playing the #1 seed in the tournament and taking 4 games off him including one of his service games. This is just proof that if you put the time into your...

    When Fed Retires Why Doesn't He...

    Start playing doubles only, with his style of play he could definitely, if he found a good partner, have a top doubles team. Look at all of the other older guys who do well in doubles, so just imagine how well Federer would do!

    2-Handed Backhand

    I have a pretty consistent backhand and I definitely make more errors with my forehand as I'm willing to try harder shots on it but generally my backhand is a stone wall. But I hit it with 2 continental grips and I haven't met anyone else who does... I have a coach though and he hasn't really...

    Interval Training

    Can I do interval training every day? Also would interval training the day before a match inhibit me much? I'm 16 and in good shape and now that soccer season is over I'm interested in maintaining my fitness and improving my recovery time in tennis as well as speed and endurance.

    Energy

    Today I played an 8 game pro-set against a guy I lost to 6-3 6-0 a few weeks ago. During these weeks I have improved my game tremendously and today I really came out to play. I got a 5-2 lead by playing serve and volley and a lot more aggressive return games than I had the last time I played...

    Returning vs Serving

    It's not that I have a weak serve, I can get 90+ mph on my first serve a decent amount of the time and I have a good kicker that I can place pretty well too, but so far this season I feel like returning is a lot more fun. (This is my first year really playing a lot, I practiced a lot in the...

    Playing Better Players

    When I play people for the second time that have beat me in the past I really seem to step up my game and even if I don't win I do a lot better than I did before. But when I play people I have beat in the past, either barely beat or really badly beat, for the second time I don't seem to be able...

    Hi all. I recently played a team where if you would call a serve long and hit it back they would get very angry with you. I am really used to just hitting the serve back and preparing for the second serve. Any ideas why people got so angry?
