    How should I go forward? Tennis league

    Doubles is a team sport. Service games are typically not won or lost by one person [OK, there are exceptions: server DFs 4 times; net person dumps 4 volleys into the net; etc]. If WE [notice the choice of pronoun] are not holding serve and I'm the net man, I have to help my server partner out...

    Achilles tendon or calf muscle?

    This is how an Achilles tear was described by every one I know who suffered one [sample size of 5], although 2 described it like feeling someone had kicked them, not just a ball hitting them. Of the 5, 4 of them were not doing anything dramatic [one of them was jumping to spike a VB]. I hope...

    Service line warm ups

    Watch 2 players doing MT well from the side and notice the ball trajectory. Then compare to 2 doing it poorly. Notice the difference? The ones doing it well have sharper trajectories, more net clearance, and the ball almost always lands in front of the SL. The ones doing it poorly have...

    Strategy - primary and secondary patterns

    Yeah, I'll start out by attacking the weak wing [assuming one exists] almost 100%: if I'm easily winning the majority of points, I'll keep doing that until either I win or he adjusts. Then I'll start varying things.

    Another pickleball rant...

    it's easy to declare something a fad in hindsight; not so easy in foresight. I know very few who got into rollerblades [enough to actually mention it in conversation] and no one [at least not adults] who took up boarding or BMX. In contrast, I know dozens of friends who have taken up Pball...

    Why do ATP players play more upright than WTA players?

    And Venus' gravitational field is > 2x more than Mars so that's why women have to bend more.

    Why do ATP players play more upright than WTA players?

    Watch Allison Riske: I always thought she had an extreme upright posture, almost as if she's wearing a back brace.

    How seriously do you want to improve your tennis?

    Just jump up on the hood of your car [or, better yet, your neighbor's car]. Just don't get your toes stuck because you'll smash your knees and possibly break your wrists trying to soften the landing. Foam box? Good!

    100-200?? That's impressive. I do them for one minute and I'm already feeling it.

    Inexcusable errors

    if the pro has already figured out he'll be able to reach the ball in plenty of time to attempt a winner [vs wondering whether he'll get there to attempt a stab defensive shot], isn't it to his advantage to run with the racquet back so his prep is early? I tend not to do that: I run with my...

    Inexcusable errors

    I believe that too but time and time again, I see pros sprinting with their racquet back, even a 2HBH. My conclusion is that they've already calculated that they are going to reach the ball in time even with the racquet back and are prepping for the shot. If they sprint without the racquet...
