SERVICE-THE OPENING GUN OF TENNIS

Service is the opening gun of tennis. It’s putting the ball in play. The old idea was that service should never be more than merely the beginning of a rally.

M’Loughlin, the wonderful “California Comet,” burst across the tennis sky with the first of those terrific cannon-ball deliveries that revolutionized the game, and caused the old-school players to send out hurry calls for a severe footfault …
