Sharapova News Everywhere; Pete Bit by Cheap: Tennis-X Notes

Ivan Lendl talking to a local Florida newspaper on the new strings in the modern tennis game: “It’s not so much the rackets as the strings. It’s just amazing what you can do with them; how hard you can hit the ball with spin. The ball moves so much, it’s crazy. It takes away the serve-and-volley game. To me, they shouldn’t be allowed…”…

A Short History of Hard Court Grand Slam Play

Due to Lendl winning Down Under to start 1990, Pete Sampras became only the sixth man to win a hard court slam at the 1990 U.S. Open.

Even more astounding to me is Patrick Rafter becoming only the tenth man to win a Grand Slam on a hard court when he won the 1997 U.S. Open title.
