    Either that or serve from the service line and don’t restrict yourself to hitting into the service box

    String tension, control vs power, how spin fits in and what it really means?

    Topspin slice serve?

    So there's very few threads on this serve, could be wrong but seems like high level women's players use this serve among others, I'm wondering why it's not more popular/ discussed more? Couldn't really find any videos on it through you tube either. I've been trying to hit a kick serve for...

    Therabandflexbar users....

    Do stringers have to replace broken strings?

    This is the right answer. If you bring the string you own it and that's the price you pay for not buying the string at the shop. I have a stringer now but prior to that I had this happen a few times. I just accepted that I had to eat the cost of the string but the shop should re-string the...

    Is there etiquette in free hitting?

    When I'm free hitting I expect my partner to hit the ball back to me most of the time, otherwise it's just annoying. Now if he/she wants to go for a winner every once in a while that's fine but if it gets excessive I will say something.

    what defines tennis athletic talent?

    So much nonsense in this thread it's hilarious. Starting to realize most of the people on this board are lower level players that have no clue what it takes to be a high level player. And this is not to diminish that type of play at all. Personally like to see people enjoy the sport no matter...
