Here’s your roundup of the five most interesting things I’m enjoying or thinking about this week.
1.) String Tension [An In-depth Guide]
String tension is an excellent fine-tuning mechanism for getting the most out of a racquet and performing your best on the court. In this video, I dive deep on the topic to provide players with a thorough understanding so they can determine the ideal tension for their game.
2.) World #1 Skipping US Open
World #1 Ash Barty has decided to skip the US Open due to the risks COVID-19 presents. It’s a reminder that even if tournaments decide to move forward, they still need players to show up. Earlier this week, world #2 Simona Halep decided to skip the Palermo Ladies Open in Italy for similar reasons, so it will be interesting to watch how things unfold with tennis returning in August.
