Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

Why don't they make Tennis balls that you can pump up like a basketball? Because they go flat so easily

Oh Sheesh Y'all, 'Twas A Dream

Number of Times I've Cried Over Sucking at FITD: All but seven

W Houston and Samarkand Singles W Charlottesville W Lermontov W ATP Bastad W Bol Fut W Orleans (w/MathMul) W Cordenons (w/dinkulpus) Tashkent S&D (w/ Mr Brightside)

Swinging the racquet and making contact on the ball where the valve is would give a different flight path to the ball than when striking a more uniform ball.

You can see this in football where expert free-kick takers like Christiano Ronaldo or Andrea Pirlo will position the ball so that he can hit it where the valve is. This will cause the flight path of the ball to bend with a different characteristic.

That's beside from the fact that the valves on balls are typically made from a harder material than the ball itself, so hitting it in this part may cause unpredictable pace, cause the ball to fly long or bounce in a strange way. Where the margins are tight, such differences can mean the difference between winning and losing a point.

This question has been answered in this thread just a few pages ago (video examples included).
GREAT Explanation, one last doubt. While Receiving the serve the ad court player plays only in ad court AND deuce court player only plays in deuce court. Right???

Okay, let me search for the video...

Yes when receiving serve the ad court player will play in the ad court and the deuce court player will play in the deuce court to start with and most of the time during the rallies as well. Sometimes during the course of the rally the players may switch sides but that is only if the situation requires it (say for instance when the deuce court player is by the net and is lobbed - the the ad court player may move over to the other side of the court to return it and the deuce court player can move over to the other side not to expose that part of the court).

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

Was there a match ever with more than 3 bagels? 4 or 5? Like 0-6, 0-6, 6-0, 6-0, 6-0

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey

Don't think so. Once they showed Federer 's dad on tv with the headphone during a match. Then the tv commentator said here Federer's dad listening to us and he waved(small one though)

no matter analog/digital, they both would have delay. What makes you feel so?
