this was so entertaining!! Thanks Alex....I think we should maintain a thread for old interesting videos, both on and off court stuff. I think the mods can help us to tell us where we can have such a thread.

It's just crazy playing with a ball in your hand, but it was second nature to these guys.

Good stuff, Alex!

Why do the players in the Ashe match hit so many different shots?
And they keep running forward!
What's wrong with them, don't they know it's easier just to stay back and play pattcake from the baseline?
CONK da ball!!!

...until one of them ends the point with an UE due to fatigue?
