    Very interesting article Jerry - thanks for posting.

    One thing that stood out for me was this:

    2. The Baseline is a LOSING proposition.

    If any specific strategy you attempt on a tennis court wins you more than 50% of points, then keep doing it.

    Rallying from the baseline is an essential part of our sport, but it’s also a very difficult place to be successful from. The Australian Open average win percentage from the back of the court for the men was just 46 per cent - 48 per cent for the ladies.

    It is pretty safe to say that Djokovic is the world’s best player from the back of the court, but he was able to only win 54 per cent of his baseline points for the tournament.

    I've got to admit I was a little surprised by the stats.
