Talk Tennis Guru
Reading some of these comments (not all or even most, but enough) it's clear some of you old-timers on here, and even some of you mid-timers here don't really fully and adequately remember what it was like to be a true beginner in the sport. That's not a criticism, once a certain degree of knowledge is obtained ad ignorance is abolished it's very difficult to remember what it was like being ignorant.
There were far fewer options when I started playing tennis in the early 1970s. So you usually got a heavy, wood racquet and you'd need to use some amount of force to get the ball to the other side of the court. A lot of people tried tennis and either progressed or gave up because it was a lot harder to maintain playing back then. Today, the number of options is ridiculous. Sometimes fewer choices make things a lot easier.
