I think next year the coverage of the USO should include some wheelchair tennis. I think seeing those guys and gals play would be amazing and I am willing to bet people would watch.

Wheelchair athletes :worship:

I have never seen a wheelchair tennis match before but if I ever get the chance to do so I would definitely take it.

To LuckyAC, the women of wheelchair tennis are of a very high quality... Jiske, Esther, Sonja.... gorgeous, and talented. Yes, two bounces, but they have to work hard to get to them, and in a lot of the top players rallies, they dont need the second bounce.

Martin Legner ROCKS!!!

I remember seeing a segment with, I think, Chanda Rubin playing against a pro female wheelchair player. Chanda was getting her butt kicked...

How much money would like the top player make?

Thank you for answering my question Bjorkman_Girl! :hug:

It's even more a shame you don't pay more attention to wheelchair tennis, LuckyAC, since your country has two players in the top 10 (men: Michaël Jérémiaz#2 and women: Florence Gravellier #4 plus some others...)! Shame on you! :ras:
I would love to have a player from my country succeeding so much in this sport even/especially if it was in wheelchair tennis! :p
Great discipline! ;)

Definitely! :yeah: And it's an hybrid version of the game. So it must be very interesting to watch because they have to be creative and invent new shots and everything... ;)
And they must realize they love tennis and playing much more than many other players do too. And it's always great to watch ppl enjoying what they do first in any sport...

It's a different game to watch but still very interesting and you just have to admire how incredible these guys and girls are!

Then you get players like Australia's Anthony Bonaccurso :drool: who might just have the best arm muscles EVER!!!
