    Agassi's old serving motion/technique

    What you think is an old serving technique, he used only that year, because he had some issues. I think it was his wrist. He came to 93 wimbledon overweight and without much practice. He went beck to his old motion after that. This is 1992: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AaXrzTKEf8...

    Pros with later starts..

    From memory, I confirm that you are halucinating. Guga's father passed away when Guga was 8 (he was actually refereeing a tennis match when he had a heart attack). Guga's mom then took Guga to family friend Carlos Alves who had a tennis school, and he initially rejected him, because he did...

    Here's a phenom

    You have got to be kidding. Have you ever seen serious table tennis played? Spin has soooooo much influence that is ridiculous. You have no clue what is going on in a game. These guys practice 6-8 hours/day ON table. Plus fitness. Little girl is amazing, but shots that she is hitting are...

    People that always question your line calls

    I had a few encounters with people who question my call on the basline, that was 2 inches out. I usually put the ball on the spot in question and ask them to call it from the opposite baseline. It is ridiculous to even think of trying :) Regards, Predrag

    Federer needs to switch to a bigger racquet

    Federer beat the master of the playing in the wind back in 2005 (I think) at the USOpen And the wind was beyond incredible. And he was using 85sq.in I believe Ergo, the problem is not the racquet, but Federer who lost confidence Regards, Predrag

    Critique my one-handed backhand

    Your weight needs to be going forward more. Also, if you could load your right foot it would help. On the follow through, it looks a bit to loosey goosey. Might help if you could have it a bit more compact stroke Regards, Predrag
