Why are tennis balls green?

Well, actually, they aren't. The International Tennis Federation (ITF) categorizes the color as "optic yellow.” Incidentally, tennis balls actually used to be black or white. When tennis started to be televised in color in the late 1960s, it was hard for viewers to track the ball on their screens, so the ITF came up with the bright greenish-yellow to make it easier on their eyes.

They're rare today, but according to ITF rules, white tennis balls are technically still allowed—a relic of pre-TV times.

What kind of courts do they play on at the US Open?

The US Open is played on an acrylic hard court. The Australian Open is played on a synthetic hard court. The French Open is played on clay and Wimbledon is a grass court. Grass courts are considered the fastest, while clay courts slow the ball down the most and provide a higher bounce. The speed of the hard courts can be affected by the amount of sand in the paint - the more sand in the top paint, the slower the ball bounces.

How do you hit a slice serve in tennis?

Tennis Slice ServeTo hit a slice serve in tennis you must come around the side of the ball. For a right-hander, your strings must connect and 'brush' around the outer right side of the ball. This brushing means you don't get the power of a flat serve, however it allows a greater angle to be achieved and the ball slides away from your opponent (or into the opponent's body) on contact with the ground.

Putting spin on the serve allows you to control the ball better. It is the best serve to use in doubles where getting the ball in play is more important than hitting the hardest serve possible.

Where in the US is Ki-o-Rahi played?

The game originates from the south pacific islands called New Zealand. The game of Ki-o-Rahi is a very fast game with a heap of action and the necessary advantage is to have high intelligence because the game situations change so rapidly and it is necessary to be a thinker who can quickly evaluate the rapid game situations. That is the main reason the US curriculum directors here have used the New Zealand game in our education of junior children, because the game promotes problem solving and group co-operation. The game also enables children of all abilities to express movement in so many different ways. The game utilizes all types of ball skills and physical movement. From all accounts these characteristics of the game are beneficial in that they transfer to other areas of childrens education such as in the classroom. There are schools all over our country who play Ki-o-Rahi. It is for the under 12s at the moment in 31,000 schools. An exciting report we have received from the largest European kite festival in Dieppe is that the first international took part between France and Maori mens teams from New Zealand. France won by nineteen points to seventeen we hear. The New Zealand Maoris won the previous two games though in combined men and women games against French opponents. The French mens team are called Les Papys du Ki-o-Rahi and they have created their own ki-o-Rahi culture since they were taught the game by Maori soldiers of WWII. The reason why the game was played at the kite festival was because the game is associated in Maori traditions with kite flying. A Ki-o-Rahi field was marked out at the Dieppe festival in the middle of the International kite arena. Traditionally Ki-o-Rahi games are started with a large kite flying over the Ki-o-rahi field and dropping the round ball that is used to play the game onto the Ki-o-Rahi field. Each quarter of the game is also started with a kite ball drop. This tradition has not been used here in our country yet as far as I know but it opens up huge possibilities in the development of Ki-o-Rahi in our own coutry.Perhaps like the French we will deviate from the traditional way of playing that the Maoris have taken to the world and develop our own style of play with new rules. Ki-o-Rahi has definitely added another dimension to my teaching. My juniors love the game and can't wait to play it whenever they get the chance. They have so much fun playing it. It is a very very popular game. It is very much a game that promotes thinking in children and group co-operation and strategizing. It is unique dynamically also in that it is played in an inclusive circular field of play. I sing the games praises because i can see the positive influences it has on my students and in my teaching.

What brand of tennis racquet did Miloslav Mecir use in the 1988 men's U.S. Open semifinal?

It has a metallic green finish paint. It has a gold pinstripe that goes around it. The only words on the entire frame are , SNAUWAERT, MILOSLAV MECIR, & MADE WITH PRECISION IN BELGIUM BY SNAUWAERT & DELPA. It also has a couple of the "S" logos near the throat and the buttcap says "SNAWAERT" and so does the leather grip. It doesn't have any grip size listed although I would guess it is either 4 3/8 or 4 1/2.

The only other characteristic that I found interesting is that is doesn't have grommets and the frame has insets for the strings like old wooden racquets along the sides starting at just past 3 and just before 9 and continuing around the top of the frame.

What is a final tiebreaker called?

The "Twelve Point Tie Break" is the final tiebreaker and was formally introduced on a Grand Slam level in 1970 at the US Open. Points in this tiebreaker are counted using ordinary numbers. The set is won by the player who wins at least seven points in the tie-break but also has two points more than his opponent. www.playsportsaustin.com The above is incorrect. In 1970 the "Nine Point 'Sudden Death' Tie Break" was introduced at the US Open. It was the first player to reach 5 points, with each player serving two points at a time for the first three cycles. Player 1 served two points. Player 2 served two points. If necessary Player 1 would serve both points. If neither player had reached 5 points Player 2 would serve again, should the tie-break reach 4 all, Player 2 would serve the final point with Player 1 given the option of which side, deuce or ad, from which to receive it. That ninth point, win or lose, would decide the set. The Nine Point Tie Break would be played at the US Open from 1970 to 1974. In 1975 the "Twelve Point 'Lingering Death' Tie-Breaker" was adopted. While played at Forest Hills, tie breaks, were accompanied by the display of a red flag on court to draw attention to the new format, a tradition that lasted from 1970-1977 until the US Open moved to its current location in Flushing Meadows, NY.

How do you hit a twist serve in tennis?

The twist serve is probably the most difficult serve to return. Most pros use either the twist or topsin serve as their second serve. To hit a twist, brush the back of the ball(up then left-right). This is also called the American or Kick Serve, the kick serve is generated by putting loads amount of top/sidespin to make the kick effect, usually power does not associate well with this serve but with racquet head speed(brush effect: 7 to 1 o clock) with continental grip. Meaning of the power that doesn't associate well is that power will make the ball go out of the service box, but instead use alot of speed to make the "power" meaning, put a lot of spin on the ball, that what makes the ball bounce higher and more powerful. As for returns, stand near the base line instead of 3 ft away of the baseline, why? because kick serves bounce very high if u are not close enough to it, you have to attack when the ball is going up, usually a backhand slice or forehand slice is the ideal return, but if the ball is slow enough you might be able to hit a winner with normal forehand or backhand.
