    Harimoto over Zhou 4-2 in the quarters. Fought back from 1-2 with some clever tactical play, especially getting his banana flick going by pulling Zhou in on the short forehand to set it up. Also...

    Great play from Jang, better than anyone else in the tournament except maybe Mizutani (the luck was on his side in that match). Never expected 4-0 in the final. I thought LJK played too passively,...

    Take it right off the bounce for maximum energy. Make thin contact so most of the energy goes for spin. The heavier the serve, the easier it is to do.

    You're changing the subject. We were talking about what's more dramatic. Now you're talking about what's a better test of skill. So, fine, if you prefer slow, grinding, boring displays of slight...

    Can confirm I've forgotten a lot of math. Luckily still remember some. And still think you're kidding, but for the sake of argument... I'll assume you mean that dividing a game into 21 points rather...

    11 points is way more dramatic. Really capitalizes on the momentum swings that characterize tt. Every point counts, always the chance for a big comeback. I'd be sorry to see a return to 21.

    Another vote for changing one thing at a time. If you want to keep your short spinny serve without a major technique adjustment, then I'd strongly recommend staying with h3n. So keep the rubber and...

    When practicing your serve at home, do you complete each repetition by ending in the ready position? A lot of people practice without moving their feet at all, just serving and then grabbing the next...
