    Have a good effect on your practice partners.

    "It's also something that most of us don't show to competitive partners. We don't want them getting better and beating us under the surface, so we don't show them respect very often or help them with their weak points." I really don't get this. I find joy in hitting a bit more relaxed and...

    Introducing a friend to tennis.. how to start?

    all very good ideas guys. thanks much for the feedback. i'll let you guys know how this goes. i like the bouncing the ball against the ground and bouncing it up on the racket to get a feel for the ball... start out with something really easy and encouraging, then proceed with mini tennis. then...

    Introducing a friend to tennis.. how to start?

    anyone got examples of being lighthearted on the courts when someone hits a bad ball? usually i'm sarcastic and just say that was almost in when it was obviously way out

    Introducing a friend to tennis.. how to start?

    So I'm taking this girl out on a play date... any tips on how to start out? i'm thinking of maybe showing basic forehand and backhand swing and the contact zone and then just playing some mini tennis within the service boxes. don't want to overwhelm her with emphasis on proper footwork...

    Novak's streak good for tennis???

    what a letdown it would be if nadal and djoker don't meet in the FO finals. anyhow, yes, i think it's good for tennis.

    "Federer says he can still return to world number one"

    Fed's still consistently making semis, so it's not too outrageous to think he can win a slam this year. #1 would take a total meltdown from both Rafa and Novak, however.

    Federer simply isn't a good enough player anymore

    is it just me or was federer's serve much worse than normal against djokovic? i don't have the stats, but it seemed like he was hitting a very low % on the first serves. a lot of that could be due to the pressure djoker was putting on fed.

    Why has Federer abandoned his winning tactics?

    federer's first serve failed him and nole's balls are too much for fed's backhand... so many shanks
