Can we get players who serve from only one corner banned??

Postby navin.israni » 31 Jul 2011, 18:15

I have come across a few players who serve from only one corner...yes it becomes easy and predictable to return...but it takes all the fun out of the game..

so is it possible to get them banned by showing a print screen shot as the proof?? on the REGULAR online matches..not in the tourneys...I know we can get them banned in tourneys??

Technically it's legal in both game and real tennis, so --- idk, up to Manu I guess :fear:. I find it hard serving in the corner anyway, I can't aim properly at all. Best serving for me is usually fairly close to the middle part of the court.

As LetsGoBro outlined, serving from the corner is allowed in real tennis ; it's not allowed in the Online Tour to prevent unfair advantage against pep with 2D courts.
Serving from the corner gives the server a slightly smaller angle range, gives more time for the returner to react, as the ball has to travel a longer distance, and gives the returner a better chance to do stingy returns, so there's no reason to forbid that kind of serve...

I'm in support of banning such serving but I have to admit its not non-existent. There are some players, if not in this generation, that have served from the corners in the past.
Grand Slam - R2(RG '12)
Masters - R3 (IW '12)
TET500 - QF (Valencia '11)
TET250-R2 (Bucharest, Queens '12)
Challenger 125- Q3 (Szczecin '11)
Career High Rank: 75 (05/21/12)
2012 W/L Singles(excluding WO, RL & LR): 5/8 (39%)
