    Remember when we couldn't play tennis for months on end?

    "When I asked a Health Minister in the Commons how she could justify banning healthy activities such as golf, tennis or bowls, she actually replied that while those activities were indeed safe, if we ‘let people do those things, they might think they can do other things too’."...

This year's Speed Pro is 14.4...

    Diagonal spin on forehand

    Often when I hit a forehand it seems to have slight diagonal spin. It still has a topspin trajectory (arc up over net then dropping in before the baseline). But when I watch the ball as it flies away from me, often it's spinning slightly on its side, rather than a perfect north-over-south...
