    String Tension and Serve

    What impact does string tension have on your serve? In my 5-10 minutes of extensive internet research, what I found spoke mostly about groundies. Is it the same where lower tension = easier power on the serve and higher tension = easier spin?

    Split Step Intensity

    Begin Rant... Occasionally I'll play a match (both friendly matches and competitive/league matches) where I'll win and after coming to the net and shaking hands and exchanging the pleasantries and chit chat; some will say something to the effect of "You know I haven't played in X amount of...
