The dreaded wind. It is one of the many weather elements that can plague a tennis game. You might view wind as a negative, but I challenge you to view it has a positive. Don't complain about it, but instead use it to your advantage. Remember, your opponent has to deal with the wind too. Use these techniques when playing a match on a windy day. Bend your knees and keep your center of gravity close to the ground, especially on your ground strokes. Use quick, babay steps when you approach the ball because the wind may kick the ball up erratically. Avoid low percentage shots, such as playing the lines, because the wind can move the ball around unexpectedly. Use topspin on your shots because it will keep the ball higher over the net thus giving you a better chance at a great shot. Rush and play the net as often as you can. It is difficult to hit passing shots and lobs when it is windy out. Your opponent may try to make you run down a lob. However, the wind usually makes the ball go long, wide, or in the net.

No, the moon does not have an atmosphere; no atmosphere ---- no wind and no liquid water.

The direction that the tennis courts are laid usually depends with the topography of the land. The direction of wind in the area is the other factor that is largely considered.

There is a possibility that some were formed by wind, but it would take a great deal of research to find out for sure.

During the day, wind blows towards land (away from water), and during the night, wind blows towards water (away from land).

The forces are:Gravity: This pulls the ball downwards and towards the ground.Wind: This affects how much it moves side to side while still in the air.There are probably many more but these are all I could think of.

There are brief moments during the year when there is no wind.

The monsoon wind is a seasonal reversal wind which blows in a fixed direction during a particular season.

You should be able to throw a baseball faster, since it has more weight and the wind resistance is not that great on the heavier baseball as it is on the lighter tennis ball.

There is no specific number for this question. Floods can occur with no wind, and some with many. There is no record of an averaged number of all wind speeds during floods.

No. There is no gas (it has no atmosphere) or water (it has no hydrosphere) on the moon. As such there can be no erosion caused by wind or water.

Apparently Wind Turbines can make Bat's Lungs explode. . . You would need between 500 and 1000 wind turbines to match the energy for a power plant!

Earthquakes do not produce any wind. So the wind is whatever it happens to be at the time.

Yes. The occasion which allows a tennis player to reach over the net to contact a tennis ball is when backspin, or blowing wind, causes a ball to go back across the net, after it has bounced within the bounds of your court. Randy Lynn Rutledge (author of Fix Your Tennis)

No. There is no wind, gravity, or water on the moon. The footsteps of the men who landed there are still there.

Wind does not play a factor in making out dish cut in and out. We live in Arizona and wind isn't something we have to commonly deal with. Although, I know it has been a factor in other places.

The only ones I have come across in my years of playing are: 1. Easy to get blisters on feet. 2. Hard to learn tennis after table tennis. I had trouble learning tennis strokes after playing table tennis for years. 3. Sometimes people run into the corner of the table (this rarely happens) 4. It is always played indoors because wind affects the ball a lot.
