    Tiring quickly when playing aggressive at net

    I get more exhausted at the net then I do running down balls at the baseline. Overheads in particular take lot out of me. I was wondering if this could be because my legs are weak and the bending on the volleys and even some overheads are draining me. if so would that cause me to lose energy...

    Breathing properly during a point

    I’m a 38 yr old 4.5 player who can run 5KM in 23 minutes but find I tire much quicker than all my opponents after an average 8 shot rally. This includes 50 yr olds who are far from skinny.

    The end of the big three’s majors run is near..

    If I had to guess the big three (likely Nadal and Djokovic) will pull in two majors in 2020 and maybe one in 2021. Djokovic will not surpass nor equal Federer’s GS record because the next gen will finally start their run of major titles next year. The trio of Medvedev, Theim and Tsitsipas have...
