How can a 2 ounce ball do so much damage to so many tennis players? I mean after all an average human weighs over 1000 times that of a tennis ball. So what is going on? How can that little fuzz yellow ball push us around?
So…what is it about hitting a tennis ball that causes us so many difficulties? Why do some players look like they are in perfect harmony and rhythm with the ball while others appear to fight the ball like they are swatting a swarming bee hive?
