    Elbow pain - but not tennis elbow

    One day 2 weeks ago I slammed my elbow into a corner of a wall. There's no bruising/visible markings. The only time I notice the pain is during my serve (except not on every serve). Should I just lay off the serves for a while? Should I be doing anything else to help it along? I don't feel...

    Is hitting low bad?

    I know technique-wise it's good because of angle and less time to prepare for the opponent and such, but it isn't exactly percentage tennis when used a lot. I don't hit with much topspin and like hitting flat and low (by low I mean when I hit the ball, it seems to stay low behind the net and...

    Advice on Starting Late

    I'm a freshman in college and picked up tennis last spring (so senior year of highschool). It's sort of a sad thought that I got exposed to the game really late, but I'm trying to catch up fast. I also hope to get on the team next year and plan on taking lessons over the summer and fall. I...
