    Is the need for a fairy tale happy ending an American thing?

    It wasn't Americans boo'ing Tiafoe for trying to win.

    Laver Cup 2022

    Forehands in the middle. It’s the way the Bryan brothers always played.

    Line call pet peeves

    The best part of clay court tennis is not a lot of line call disputes, but we had an opponent in a doubles league match last week call a ball out that was clearly half on the line. We could see the mark from our side and told him it was a really bad call and that he can check the mark after the...

    Mac says Iga was borderline cheating.... I think not.....

    I think it should be considered a hinderance. But it's not "cheating" if the umpires clearly see it and choose not to award the other player the point.

    Help with OHBH height/depth control - with video

    I haven’t read through all the comments, so apologize if I’m repeating anything already said, but an easy queue on making sure you are probably getting the full take back is to keep your head facing the ball and turn your body enough that you can place your chin on your shoulder. This should...

    Why exactly is Jack Sock always in Laver Cup?

    Are they going to replace Isner since he’s hurt? They need to add big Foe.

    Is it ok to swing the raquet on the wrong side of net.

    If the ball bounces on your side of the net and spins back over the net you can reach over the net to hit it. If you touch the net you lose the point. If you hit the ball out of the air on your side of the net and your follow-through takes you over the net to their side, that is ok. Again...

    Wawrinka or Roddick the superior tennis player?

    If not for Fed, Roddick would definitely have several more GS. Roddick lost to Federer in 8-grandslams. 4 GS finals, 3 semifinals and 1 quarterfinal.

    I wouldn't say Alcaraz is finished, but is he not as good a player as we initially thought?

    He lost a final. Not like he was bounced in the 1st round. He is still 41-7 YTD, which is not bad for a 19 year old. Yes, anyone who thought he would win every single match this year over hyped him.

    Medvedev Enters His 10th Week at #1

    Wimbledon doesn’t count, so of the one’s that count Med, Nadal and Djok all have 1.

    Can only the "entitled" in America become top tennis players?

    The 100th best tennis player in the world barely makes a living. The 100th best baseball or football player might be the best player on their team and making 10M per year. It’s a calculated risk for the highly atheletic kids.

    Serve Advice

    A couple things: - Your arm motion is very smooth. - Your unit turn is good, but you come out too early and all your weight then goes on your front foot. This is what is causing your front foor to slide forward. Try practicing serving with your front foot slightly off the ground, which...

    Serve worse on clay courts?

    It’s probably in your head. Spin and placement matter more on a clay court, because serves tend to slow down and sit-up more than on a hard court. I generally don’t hit a flat serve when I play on clay except as a change of pace. Try to focus on putting more slice and kick than you normally...

    Life after Srsh Thread

    Horror stories of choking, losing big leads, etc.

    Lol! Truth is a good high deep ball with a lot of topspin is tough for anyone. It is way too tempting to go for too much too soon. The only effective way to attack it is to stand on the line and take it early, and that's a riskier play.

    Horror stories of choking, losing big leads, etc.

    You would think so... :-D The main thing I have to learn is patience, which is not my strong suit.

    Horror stories of choking, losing big leads, etc.

    I was up 6-0, 5-2 and serving for the win against a guy in a league match a couple years ago and he started moon balling me. I lost my rhythm completely fell apart and didn't win another game. Lost 6-0, 5-7, 0-6.

    Why are Djokodal so hard to beat in BO5?

    I would gander they spend less time and effort on fitness. I think it is a symptom of a generation that came of age in the internet and social media era. Too many mental distractions to build the foundation.

    2022 Wimbledon R16: [2] Rafael Nadal vs [21] Botic van de Zandschulp

    Botic spraying UFE all over the place. Clearly could never control the nerves. Rafa never had to do anything special. Served well, but otherwise played safe balls.

    Should Kyrgios-Tsitsipas Be On Centre Court?

    I don’t think they want any 5-set matches on center. Need to preserve the grass.

    Nadal Won't Play Wimbledon

    I imagine he will still want to make a go at the Tour Finals since he has never won it.

    Rafa fans. Who do you want to see him play in the final? Cilic or Ruud?

    Not a Rafa fan, per se, but I would say the points with Cilic will be shorter, so should help him to go longer (although it being a final he's going to lay it all out regardless), but he probably matches up better with Ruud.

    Zverev's Fall Looks Painful

    We have ****ty clay courts so I have done this a few times sliding and getting my foot caught. It's so hard to tell on these injuries until they can get in and do an x-ray. I rolled my ankle very similar to this on a clay court and heard an audible "pop" and couldn't put any weight on it, but...
