    Take it on the rise or take it at the highest point?

    If I wanted to put it away, I'd hit it at its highest point to get a better angle. I could also hit it on the rise to one of the corners to set up an easy volley as my next shot and put it away then.

    Looks like Roger's aware of the edge as it appears he is foot faulting :)

    white at wimbledon

    They almost didn't allow Nadal to wear his "pirate pants" last year I thought. But they decided to allow it in the end as long as it was white.

    Hard Hitters vs. Spin Doctors

    I think a hard hitter would be more effective only because with spin doctors/junkballers I find there is a lot more time to react.

    Sports Drinks

    It contians electrolytes in the form of potassium and its so much tastier than just plain water. Coconut water is my "sports drink" of choice :p I just dilute it very slightly with purified water and I'm good to go.

    Hammer grips vs pistol grip on the 1 hand backhand

    I've always used a hammer grip, but it doesn't seem to me like there would be a specific advantage in using either grip.

    I can bounce the ball on the frame a few times but thats about all I've got. I think I'll work on my Blake flip next time I practice :)

    Federer looks bloated

    I'd say that its from the lighting and because he is in motion. Cause there's no difference in his arms.

    How do the pros check the calls on the hard courts without spot shot?

    Like others have said, when you hit the ball hard enough, it will leave a green scuff mark on hard courts. And thats what you see the pro's looking for when they walk over to where a ball just landed when their not sure.
