The gravity comment is elementary physics, but acceleration related topics are usually not
Maybe your education was done elsewhere where elementary physics is actually more advanced

Ancic-Wawrinka match, camera pans to audience members wearing red shirts with white crosses.

Bill Macatee (Edit: Threlfall): "Quite a lot of support for Croatian players here, with the distinctive red and white shirts they all wear."
John McEnroe Sets him straight on the design of the Swiss flag.

Worse, during the warmup, they cut to fans wearing the actual Croatian flag on their shirts and Bill had commented on it.

Dimwit Pat McEnroe couldn't admit that Federer was born with physical agility, strength and very long arms.
He desperately lived through Federer, which fed his ego as a commentator.
Pat promoted his success as the "result of genius and anticipation".
It's always "no one is well loved like Federer". Poor McEnroe.

I guess age is a relative concept - Kendrick turns 27 in a few months, while Nadal turned 20 only a few weeks ago. Not that Kendrick is a veteran, but he is certainly no youngster.


(while Kendrick was serving at 3-5 in the 5th set)
"Kendrick would love to hold serve here"




(just prior to Nadal serving for the match)
"during that change of ends, Nadal ate a banana. If you recall back to the French Open, during the 5th set in his match against Paul-Henri Mathieu, he got a piece of banana stuck in his throat and had to take an injury timeout to wash it down with some water"

First of all, thanks for the story Fred, secondly, there was no 5th set.

Yes, that is true and the best thing was after RG, he went off and played a league match.

Heya, since you keep bringing on these theories about tennis talent and about Federer not being talented but a long armed/power freak of nature, I suppose you are invited to elaborate this more?

I am just talking about high school physics in Greece, i guess it is similar elsewhere. The fact that a particle cannot accelerate without the influence of an external force looks pretty elementary. After the racquet contact, the only force on the ball is its own weight.

i'll be a smart-ass for a sec:
Balls with top spin have a Magnus force acting on them, which is why they drop faster. Perhaps this force might also accellerate the ball horizontally, although i'm not too sure.

Hmmm... I am pretty sure that the Magnus effect creates a vertical force.

I went to a very academically poor high school, and Newton's laws were covered. I call it elementary.
