    Pressureless vs Pressured Balls

    Hi guys, So ok, I get that most practice balls are pressureless balls, and that balls you use in games are pressured. Where I draw a question mark is whether you're supposed to use pressured balls sometime during practice so you can accurately simulate the "real game" feel right before a game...

    Twisted Calf Muscle Twice (Because of Spin Balls): Is This Common?

    Hi guys, Know those balls where people just spin the ball like crazy, and instead of the ball bouncing along its flight trajectory it either goes sideways or straight up. I have twisted my right calf muscle twice due to my muscles having to instantly trying to adjust to the unexpected ball...

    Weird: My Opponent Hits Baseline-hugging, High Bouncing Balls

    How exactly do you return (or counter) these balls that go direct to the baseline then bounce real high? An opponent I played in a match used this technique a lot. It's difficult to return the balls because you have to backup all the way back to the fence where you tennis racquet is almost...

    Why do some recreational players have so many racquets??

    No, not old frames. Really fully stringed tennis rackets. A lot of times expensive ones. There has to be an edge it gives them. That's what I'm trying to figure out here.

    Why do some recreational players have so many racquets??

    Some tennis players I play with come to the court with four to five different racquets. So I guess this is the norm. If it gives you some kind of advantage bringing different racquets to the court, how do you know which different types of racquets to get?

    Handling Short Balls

    I have not done such drills where I've had to call out the depth of the ball, no. You do this with a trainer or something? My perception issue I have not really paid attention if I could identify other types of shots because most of the ones I can hit back are the ones that land near (or at)...

    Handling Short Balls

    My greatest achilles heel has been short balls. Specifically identifying whether a ball is gonna be short so I can advance into the court to hit it. My normal position is usually about 2 1/2 feet away from the baseline. Have any of you more experienced players cracked the code on identifying...
