Don’t Play in the Wind

Alan Der Ohannessian

While attending doubles tennis match featuring Brooke Daone with Anna Yang, I could see that the wind was affecting the players’ game.

Therefore, I say when there’s a wind the matches should be postponed.

The players were making adjustments to their games such as hitting weak serves which is detriment to their overall outcome.

Also, they weren’t able to control the ball.

There was an instance where Yang barely hit the ball because she mistimed it. The ball hit the frame of the racquet and went into the net.

In another instance, the ball bounced more than it had to and Doane wasn’t expecting it, so she hit a wide crosscourt backhand as she was out of position.

When there’s a rain, matches are postponed.

The same thing should happen with the wind.
