    any1's got vids of top pros or any pro using ball machine:?))) or no at all:?)))

    Not seen that.Was it young gun Andre or bald Andre? I imagine that many, if not most, current pros - used ball machines in their pre-tour days as developing juniors. Don't if many are using them as pros since they usually have access to decent hitting partners. Have seen vids of the Ace Attack...

    What is your IQ?

    Steve Jobs is also reported to have an IQ of 160. Einstein never actually had his IQ measured with a test that we know of. Published scores for him are estimates. Some based on his thought experiments. Many estimates put his IQ at 160. From what I've heard, 160 is actually the highest value...

    My score is a bit lower than that of Rain Man but significantly higher than Orange Man.

    Makes sense. I believe that 130 is the new 100.

    Ancient Egypt is Creepy.

    I was gonna say that Younes El Aynaoui might have been from Egypt but I would have been incorrect. Wrong part of north Africa. From Morocco (NW Africa) rather than Egypt (NE Africa).

    What is your IQ?

    (y) Very good (mentioned this in post #16) IQ tests could have a very strong correlation to academic success in school -- esp for math, most science classes as well as other logic-oriented classes and some linguistic classes. However, high scores on IQ tests do not guarantee success in...

    What is your IQ?

    Perhaps. Elementary Cognitive Tasks might be useful. Other software training, like BrainHQ or Lumosity, may (or may not) help. Actually a wide variety of mental and physical exercises might be the ticket. Sudoku, cryptic crosswords, Scrabble, logic problems, Testris, chess, Go, reaction time...

    What is your IQ?

    IQ tests are largely logic/math. Fluid and crystallized intelligence. Also linguistic (verbal) and some spatial "intelligence". It could reflect an ability to solve many types of problems. In addition to crosswords, not sure if an IQ score would reflect ability to solve all types of problems...

    Violating physics -- ball acceleration AFTER contact

    @Lleytonstation For some approx ball speeds during a serve, consider the following. (Dont recall exact figures. These may be from Yandell data). A 120 mph serve (moderate spin) might slow down to about 90 mph pre-bounce -- a loss of 30 mph (depending on air drag and other factors). Depending...

    Violating physics -- ball acceleration AFTER contact

    Yes, mostly curious about the down and dirty details of the science. The simple view that we are given would indicate that the ball slows down after leaving the racket (golf club, paddle, bat, foot or hand --- depending on the sport). But I wonder if there is a finer detail that is overlooked...

    Violating physics -- ball acceleration AFTER contact

    Interesting point. What would the effect be in a vaccuum? No air friction (drag) to slow down the ball. And nothing to push against either one the ball left the strings. Would the ball still experience any effect from shape restoration after leaving the strings? That is, any effect on on ball...

    What is your IQ?

    Note that IQ tests are probably not a full measure of one's intelligence. Someone here mentioned EQ. But there is also the concept of multiple intelligences (8 or more IIRC) as proposed by Howard Gardner and others. IQ tests might only focus on 3 or so types of intelligence

    Somewhat lower than Albert Einstein's IQ but higher than that of the average IQ of prolific posters on the GPPD forum.

    Violating physics -- ball acceleration AFTER contact

    Sure, that is certainly true. But other than a tail wind (gust) or the ball as a living organism that can release methane, can a deformed ball still accelerate, very shortly after leaving the strings, as it regains its round shape?

    Violating physics -- ball acceleration AFTER contact

    Are you referring specifically to the graphic/image from post #3? Or are you referring to the whole concept of the thread? In general physics classes we learned abt the basics of collisions -- pretty much from a macro view. It tells us that, after its collision with a racket stringbed, the...

    So you say. Not all modern physicists are comfortable about the validity, meaning or ramificatioms of QM. Ongoing debates on it for more than a century. https://www.sciencenews.org/blog/context/why-quantum-mechanics-might-need-overhaul Einstein was actually a pioneer in QM. He offered a...
