expect to keep running around all of
the lobs fed to him by a successful lob
It may not seem fair at this point for
him to do most of tho work, but I see
no other way of breaking up a manner
of attack which. If allowed to con
tinue, throws ons on the defenss and
takes no end of endurance to main
tain. Better have It over with quick.
In serving I hold it to be debatable
as to the propriety of delivering a hard
service t the lady and one which she
has no chance of returning, success
fully. Personally I like to see the
serve go to the lady, so that she has a
fair chance of once getting the ball
On the other hand there can be noth
ing unfair or discourteous In taking all
the aces possible, no matter If the ace
Is gained because of great speed.
In case the lady is bewildered by a
very fast ball and la In danger of being
struck, the man should certainly slow
down the service.
There can be no possible objection In
taking advantage of the inability of the
lady to cover the same amount of court
as the gentleman.
To pass her either st the net or by
acute cross-court shooting Is entirely
proper. To work her weak back hand
is correct and proper. To ask her to
get out of the way and allow you to
hit a ground stroke, which rightfully
belongs to her. Is unfair and discourte
ous. It Is proper to smash the return
so that the ball will fall far out of court
and far beyond the possibility of return
by either lady or gentleman, but If tbe
ordinary run of smashes are aimed at
the lady with the same amount of
deadly venom as at the man there Is
danger of hitting her and a good hard
Summing It all up my rules ar thsse:
Don't serve aces at ths lady.
Don't smash at the lady.
Don't run in front of your partner.
Don't fail to take the net on a good
deep return, but pray, oh pray, don't
imagine that you are the "whole cheese"
and that your arms are 10 feet long.
v following these little hints I think
you will find mixed doubles one of the
most delightful 01 oul-oi-uoor gamts.
