If I get tickets for the semifinals and finals at Indian Wells what does that include-- one singles and one doubles match each day? Mens or womens?

What is that on Nadal's stomach?

I watched Nadal play the semifinal Cincinnati match tonight against Djokovic and he was wearing a skin-colored, wide strip of tape over his stomach. You could see the tape when his shirt flipped up. None of the ESPN commentators knew what it was or knew of any stomach injuries he had. Does anybody know what this is about?

I often use most of my energy during the first set and feel that I don't have enough energy to get me through the second or sometimes third set.

What in between match training do you recommend? Other advice??

I am more used to and comfortable with warming up at the baseline since these warm up rallies resemble most of the match play. I have done this kind of service box warm up before at clinics but I just don't get why it is done. Does anybody know why?

When your opponent falls...

In a recent match my opponent fell when trying to return my shot. Her fall was not a result of stepping on a ball, she was just running to the net and tripped and fell. I asked her if she was all right and she was. I gave her a few minutes to recover and then she asked to take the point over. I agreed because I didn't want to appear cold, but I felt that I should have got the point as she was unable to return the shot. Does anyone know the official rule on this? Is there a rule or is it just… Continue
