Tennis Ball 101

Most of us have hit and picked up a ton of tennis balls!  Some more than others!  You know who you are…Slow, coach talking, water breaking, handful of ball picker uppers!  Oh and I can’t forget the Juniors who shoot balls like Steph Curry or so they think so…they all do the 5 pushups for missed shots!  It happens at every Academy in the world unless you have Coach’s who are guilty of being ‘No Fun!’

Well here is a video of how tennis balls are made!  A quick 3 and a 1/2 minutes of your life so you know where they come from!  Balls up in 2 minutes though!

French Open ‘Live’ Blog

Red Clay

Click Here for Live Updates and great content to keep you informed!  Is this the year Novak finally wins on the red clay?  Is it actually clay?

Fun fact from Wiki:

Almost all red “clay” courts are made not of natural clay but of crushed brick that is packed to make the court. The crushed brick is then covered with a topping of loose crushed particles. This type of surface does not absorb water easily and is the most common in Europe and Latin America. The French Open is played on red clay courts at  Roland Garros.
