Letter: About that tennis move . . .

The Monitor headline/caption writer strikes again in the April 8 paper.

The caption under a photo on Page B1 states: “Bow sophomore Laura Zbehlik follows through on a serve during the Falcons’ season opener against Sanborn yesterday.”

Apparently the caption-writer has never played or seen much tennis or he or she did not look at the photo for which the caption was written.

Conceivably Laura has come up with a strange new sidearm serve, though that is not mentioned in the caption or the article. It seems clear from the photo that she is not following through on a serve but rather on a forehand stroke, probably with some topspin, given her grip and the position of the ball relative to her racquet head.
