Players height and weight

Postby Anne » 08 Sep 2011, 16:28

Can someone tell me if height and weight have an influence on players speed or acceleration shots ?? cause my player is pretty tall and some ppl told me that the smaller player is better (hits the ball stronger). is it true ????

Hello,

small players run slightly faster, to compensate the lose of wingspan compared to taller players.
In a general way, they hit about same than taller players, except that on low ball, they are a bit advantaged ; so on faster surfaces (ie: grass & indoor), smaller players may have a small advantage (if they don't go to the net).

Hello I have a question. Is it easier for taller players to serve? (Better angle, serve speed, etc)

Somebody Someone,
not really, except that the ball is coming from higher, so the bounce is also higher, pushing the returner a bit more far (or raising the difficulty to return if he stays at the same distance).

Shorter players run a little faster than tall ones.
