Do sponsors support their charge’s behaving in such a manner? Do they appreciate having their products smashed just to advertise (and how is it more of an advert anyway?)? Do they condone such an example to the rest of the world that could potentially get further into the sport, and what of the tennis federations and associations that could stamp this behavior out, and do very little? Of course, it’s necessary to express oneself in the simmering experience of top-level tennis, but violent conduct needs to be curtailed before it gets out of hand. Tennis is evolving, rule changes are being brought in, the subject of equal pay has been addressed and there is a fierce new generation of talent. But now is the time to make sure tennis doesn’t become just another modern spectacle that surrenders its very essence in order to entertain. It can and always has entertained, but it doesn’t need to dumb down or reduce what makes it so unique, what makes it such a fascinating and compelling sport, both from a mental and physical viewpoint.
Warmup equipment: Once again, you don't want to step onto the court for your match with cold muscles and without being warmed up. A jumprope can help get your legs ready while a resistance band is great for warming up your arm and shoulder. A lot of players even keep a football in their bag to throw around between matches. Tossing a football around is especially good because it replicates and helps improve your service motion.
