A counterpuncher type tennis player is a player that returns every shot! They have great stamina and run every shot down. They may not have the most powerful shots nor hit many winners, but they rely on wearing you out. They will keep the ball in play by hitting simple, smooth shots. Sometimes they will continually hit lobs which can be frustrating. They are waiting for you to become frustrated or impatient. When you reach that point you will most likely try to hit a winner and miss the shot because your timing is off. A counterpuncher can be beaten if you are skilled at shot placement. Make them run for angle shots on both sides of the court. Bring them in close to the net and then lob over their head. Be patient. Take your Time and don't lose your temper. They are counting on you to lose your cool. I believe the previous answer describes a "retriever". A counterpuncher is someone who lets the opponent make the aggressive moves, particularly letting them (or encouraging them) to come to the net and then makes their move. Given the lack of attacking net players these days, you see few conterpunchers. In a nutshell, a counterpuncher tends to generate his power and opportunities from the actions of his opponent.

If you are looking for the type of tennis ball launcher that dog owners use to avoid touching a drooly tennis ball, those are available for sale at all pet stores, and usually in the pet 'section' of most department stores. If you are looking for the type of machine that launches tennis balls at tennis players to help them improve their tennis skills, than the Silent Partner is a great company to order from. They are a Canadian company, but they have a warehouse in the U.S. to serve the tennis market as well.

umm they can be 4.0 - 6.0 feet IMPROVED ANSWER: Tennis players vary in height. Tennis players are usually tall, especially the men. The average height for a women is around 5'9 and for men around 5'11. However the men reach outstanding heights, eg/ Ivo Karlovic from Croatia is 196cm tall the tallest male tennis player. Also, rising star Bernard Tomic of Australia who has a Croatian background (Y) is only 17 and is 194cm tall. If you'd like to find out the height of some tennis players just go on www.wikipedia.com/ and type in the tennis player you are interested in. Thanks, i hope this is a better answer.
