You have to watch out for there little back, ther parents might sue the ATP for damages.

I'm not afraid of anyone, but sometimes I'm afraid of myself.

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

Re: stupidest thing i've ever seen

Why is it stupid? Seems a good idea to me, they don't have to bend and reach so much.

Re: stupidest thing i've ever seen

I don't understand why it's stupid either. We've used those things in Sweden for decades.

Re: stupidest thing i've ever seen

this year I saw a tournament of Sweden where the ball boys had this kind of nets.
Seems good for their backs

Re: stupidest thing i've ever seen

In my opinion the stupidest is that someone criticizes these useful nets

I agree with you. Unbelievable that anyone can call it stupid? If a device can help young people be free of injury then it should be used everywhere. All I can say put yourself in the shoes of the young person and imagine how stressful constant bending and picking up balls can be. They must get totally knackered by the time the day is over.

Re: stupidest thing i've ever seen

that is pretty fuckin stupid. Next thing you know they will be giving them little carts to ride around on so their fat asses don't have to walk. This is fucking ridiculous.

Re: stupidest thing i've ever seen

wow, people have discovered they are using these nets wow
shows that you know nothing about tennis because it is not new
it's stupid to say that this method is stupid, it's good and most balls can be picked up faster and more secure
