Women's 'Grand Slam'??

Started this discussion. Last reply by Tim Prapong Jan 23, 2012. 1 Reply

I'm just curious how you can call a standard best of 3 sets tour event a 'Grand Slam'? Shouldn't there be something extra here? A tougher test of some sort? How about 8 game sets instead of 6?Continue

I'm heading to Hawaii in a few weeks. When I play over there, the ball seems to move through the air faster than it does in California. If this is due to the humidity in the air, which way would you…Continue

"I'm not a fan of it. When I was a kid, I never played tee ball, it was coach-pitch baseball. My daughter will be 10 in August and she's hitting with a full size Wilson BLX Bold and we're hitting almost full court."

"Definitely my serve. I can rip forehands and backhands for winners but I feel my serve is a liability. I'd love to hit a 90mph kick serve. Is that even realistic for a 46 year old 4.0+ player? Haha!"

"I've used that Speed Trac X and found it read really badly on shots that are not going directly towards it. I was demonstrating serves to kids at a summer camp and I hit a slice serve that was clearly faster than my flat demo serve at 94 mph.…"

Hi Harold :-)  I haven't signed onto Tennisopolis in soooo long - like maybe 5 or 6 months!  I don't even remember.  Anyway, I never saw your not and then Tami told me you'd tried to contact me some time ago.  I don't know if I play a mean game or not, lol, but I sure do enjoy myself and I can get into some fun trash talk, too :-)  Let me know if you'd ever like to get a doubles game together at Andulka.  I'm not much of a singles player.  Looking forward to hearing from you!  Edra

That backhand volley looks vicious with that giant racquet. Just letting you know, that racquet's illegal. lol
