Never heard of the Deaflympics.  I am not knocking it, just never heard of it...  Apparently they have tennis.

I know hearing is a big part of the game, but I wonder how much worse we would really play with ear plugs on.

In tennis I do not see it being that much of a big deal.  I do not feel like I would judge spin any differently if I could not hear.  Who knows, but the girl in the picture was pretty good looking, so I am backing her all the way!  Go deaflympics!
Good Luck on the Court!!!
