    Best tennis game for nintendo switch (mario aces or tennis world tour)?

    Im leaning towards world tour even though it got lower marks on reviews than mario tennis aces. The spin on world tour seems to have better more controllable dynamics, at least it looks like that. Anybody played both?

    Why do alot of people still think “made in china” means the product is low quality/sketchily manufactured?

    The main thing that matters is the engineering and the attention to detail of the factory workers. Lots of very quality stuff is made in china. Chinese people make alot of well made, reliable products. A racquet designed in china might be a different story but a good chinese factory worker with...

    Does a rapidly spinning ball (Nadal, Sock, etc..) lose more speed in the air than a flat one?

    It seems players like nadal and sock need to smack the 5hit out of the ball in order to get a winner while players with flatter shots send balls down court that keep their momentum better.

    Do people who say “its the player not the racquet” simply have ham-fisted nervous systems?

    Im not saying there arent people out there who obsess too much over getting the perfect racquet, but i would be amazed if any very high level tennis players would be so numb and uncoordinated to say the right racquet doesnt matter a tremendous amount. Another thing to consider is different...

    Is it common to use feds fh grip with the index knuckle on the corner between bevel 3 and bevel 4?

    I have tried all sorts of grips but the most comfy/snug/consistent grip for me is when the base of my index knuckle is right on to of the corner btween bevel 3 and 4. Just wondering if this was common or if its a bad habit etc... I have seen some charts showing eastern grip as base knuckle on...

    What ATP players would be better if they had grown up learning 1HBH.

    Immediately i would go to players that are plenty strong but not that lanky like sock and verdasco. When is it too late to for an up and comer to switch from a 2HBH to a 1HBH?

    What racquets/strings work best as buffer that evens out pace?

    For example, a buffer racquet would work like a buffer solution in chemistry class. If you hit the ball too soft, the racquet flexes in a way that gives more power. If you crush the hell out of the ball, the racquet would ease up on the power so you dont hit it a mile out of bounds. In other...

    How would you rank top ATP pros by natural (pound for pound) strength?

    By natural strength i mean how strong the player is relative to their weight. For example someone with alot of natural strength might be 5 foot 5 and able to slam dunk a basketball. My list would go 1- kyrgios 2- safin/Nalbandian tie 4-Nadal/djokovic/sock tie 7- dimitrov/verdasco/tsonga tie 10-...

    Do any pros find the pre match interviews and pre match pictures annoying?

    If i was in the zone and focused on my match, the last thing i would want to do is answer questions in the hallway or say cheese for a picture with my opponent out in the center of the court. Who started the trend of all these pre match obligations?

    Why dont TV broadcasters show matches from court level?

    just watch a minute of this match and tell me court level isnt way better than normal birds eye view. Court level view makes you actually see how 3 dimensional the game is. You cant even tell the spin differential between men and women from the normal birds eye...

    Is it degenerate to connect the crosses to the mains (all one length of string)?

    it seems like the corner where the mains and crosses were linked would leak tension from the mains to the crosses over time and result in an asymmetrically tensioned stringbed which would exert an asymmetric load on the racquet hoop. Seems like a pretty big cop out when you think about how easy...
