So 6.0 tennis is something like this?
Shirtless guy has the weirdest effective forehand ever I guess. And how does the other guy survive at that level with that serve?

If I hit three balls in a row across the net, in tennis, that shouldn't be extraordinary at all.

But the net here is actually the fence of golf course....


Maybe the real catch here is not the over the fence aspect; it is the my unusual tennis forms to drive the golf balls!

They are: 1.open stance, 2-handed forehand gripping positions and palm-up at contact,
3. plus the super-extended body rotation.

I think the shirtless guy is the 6.0/UTR12 in this clip and the other guy doesn't claim to be at that exact level. You can note in description they're playing in 99 degree heat and I concur based on his movement that he's really not trying anything close to 100%--I don't think it's fair to make any wholesale conclusions about the level of play at a given level in a friendly/casual set situation.

How is his FH weirdest?

It looks great to my eyes. All the necessary elements are there and more!
In fact the shot produced by it is the type that I prefer. The consistent and high net clearance and amount of topspin.

EMH plays some good tennis, but the guy's pride and ego are much bigger than his game. I can't watch him.
Ratings...I will leave that to everyone else to discuss.

Li hitting solid.


And what it really looks like to play Serena. She just hits BIG! And moves much better than most think. No super graceful, but very efficient.

From day 2.
The ones you may not know are the Aussie guys Popyrin and Li Tu.
Li Tu was amazing, hard to believe he’s unranked! He went toe to toe against Lopez. Not a big guy but a great fast action serve regularly hitting 190-200kph. Very fast arm but I think his low toss well into the court plays a big role too.
Enjoy.

Are you allowed around the outside courts?

Reilly, come here for a sec, I said. He came to the fence and I said “what are you doing mate? You’re supposed to swing up, not down into the court. He laughed and walked away!


They are not playing rec tennis, your advice works for amateur like us (maybe?) but for them it is probably a bad advice. Anyway it is a shame we didn't see your recording of this interaction it would be fun to watch.

It was too hot, the interaction might’ve happened in my imagination!

Less than impressive. American ratings are weird as hell.
