Re: Why does

It rather looks like a "landing net" to catch the balls.

Re: Why does

Yes, it's like a tennis racket with a net, I've already seen ballboys with this kind of nets.
But I'm not sure, it's just a gues.

Re: Why does

These kind of frames with an attached net to them are used every year in Vienna. It is used there since I can think of Vienna tennis and it was always something special compared to the other tournaments where the ballkids hold the balls in their hands.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: Why does

I haven't seen those for years!

I think for me the most talented of all times was (Marcelo) Rios. Marat Safin, 2004

Marcelo has an enormous talent. Gaudio, RG champion 2004

"Rios ... he has a beautiful game, great forehand and great touch," Federer, World number 1

Guillermo Coria: "Ríos and Vilas are my two idols"

Re: Why does

I have seen them before they use them so they don't really have to bend down for the ball, so they don't hurt there little backs.

I'm not afraid of anyone, but sometimes I'm afraid of myself.
-Justine Henin-Hardenne-

Life it's a great game.
-Andre Agassi-

He was too good. I would suggest to his next opponent that he doesn't look to me for advice.

I did too I'm sure I could come up with a tennis-like game with the nets, though...it would be like that game "nookum" where you try to catch the volleyball and throw it instead of hitting it back.
