    Going to the net? Drop volley. The other player isn't that far back? Drop volley. The other player wouldn't be able to run the ball down unless you hit a shot that's VERY slow? DROP VOLLEY. Nadal, Medvedev, Zverev, etc. I don't even think it's that much easier. At some point simply hitting it...

    Rublev appears shorter on tv

    Rublev appears shorter on tv, but he is 1.88m tall. To me for some reason he appears like 1.80m on tv, something like Kohlscreiber, but he is taller than Ned and Fed. Anyone else has this optical illusion?

    Tennis History buffs please help

    I do not understand (despite having read some no helpful articles) why is the open era a thing? I mean, I know that it started because pros were allowed in slams for the first time, but why wasn't it allowed before? What's so bad about pros playing in such a prestigious tournament?

    What I think Nadal's seasons should be from now on.

    Shouldn't the guy stop playing so many tournaments? I mean forget Indian Wells, I consider he should strive to play the tournaments he hasn't won. Miami for example. Skip Monaco, skip Barcelona, play Roma and Madrid. Play Wimbledon and Halle. Play only Cincinatti, play US Open and Shanghai...
