    Is The ITF Service Rule Changing Youth Tennis?

    The "Prisoners Dilemma" tells you that the best strategy is to cheat. -If you don't and your opponent does, you come out worse. -If your opponent doesn't, you can gain an advantage by cheating (this is the best case) What should happen in every tennis match is that both players should cheat...

    How adequate is that?

    I don't know. That's pretty much happens when you get a cramp. He was hitting a serve just a second before. There's really no way to know when a cramp will come on. And there isn't anything anyone can do either. You just have to wait for the muscle to relax. But like I said, if you happen...

    How adequate is that?

    I don’t think they gave him an IV, did they? By the way, I get leg cramps in bed once in a while and the pain is amazing. There’s not much I can do except wait for the muscle to relax and pain to subside. Then I carefully get out of bed and stretch. If I move wrong getting out of bed, it...

    How adequate is that?

    Can't do it under the cramping rule. If he receives assistance on court, he's DQ'd. All they have to do is force a saline IV into the guy and he'll be fine almost instantly. It's really amazing to watch if you've never seen it before.

    Slice Serve Question

    This might be true. It's actually true for me. But I don't think it will be true for many people. If you do this and don't do it right, your teammates will read you the riot act. If you swing fast on your 2nd serve, you'd better be sure you know what you're doing or you'll make a lot of...

    Do you read history?

    So what does this tell you? Sum "history" up for us based on "the facts".

    Do you read history?

    Are basing this on the available evidence at the time the decision was made? Or on what is known now for example? Generally speaking, most of us already know everything. We only read to confirm what we know. Anything that doesn't support our initial bias, is discarded. It's much easier...

    Do you read history?

    No it doesn't. Fox News is gospel truth. MSNBC is lies and hatred. "I'm rubber and you're glue........."

    Do you read history?

    Perhaps read more than one book and get more than one perspective on things? Which is exactly how you read "current history" I'd imagine, right? You can't imagine Fox news or MSNBC somehow gives you "true history" of your own times, can you? Imagine if you only read Thucydides to understand...

    Do you read history?

    Of course. A general understanding of "the times" is a prerequisite to studying the philosophy, literature, music and art of a culture. It's pretty hard to read Plato for example without understanding what was going on when he was writing. If you don't, then you will just view everything...

    What is the second most prestiogious Grand Slam?

    Most prestigious is obviously WTF. I think it was smart to leave Wimbledon off the list. Nobody cares about it anymore except hungry cows.

    Slice Serve Question

    "Up and over the mountain" as Pat Dougherty says. I'd say getting this right is one of the hardest things in the serve. And once you get it, it's still easy to be lazy and "go through the mountain" on any particular serve. And you are correct. Even on a "flat serve", you still go "up and...
