Where do they put the ball?

We guys have pockets, but I've always wondered about this--where do the women put the ball they aren't serving with (assuming they don't just hold the one)? Is there a piece of velcro under the skirt? A hidden pocket? Or is it tucked up in their underwear?

One of the great mysteries in tennis....

Re: Where do they put the ball?

Seeming that they all appear to wear some sort of lycra shorts under their skirts these days I'd say they just put them up there

They where tight, lycra hotpants underneath whatever they were. They slot the ball up there and cos' it's so tight the ball stays there.

Re: Where do they put the ball?

The most are Skorts (Skirts with Pants inside)... Otherwise they wear Hotpants under the skirt.

Some just put the ball under the hotpans but usually they have a pocket for the ball, some put it in there... Most of the Pants have the pocket on the left site some on both sites...

Re: Where do they put the ball?

Thanks for the info. I just couldn't figure out how they stayed up there, given some of the loose skirts the players wear.

Re: Where do they put the ball?

Yep, shoved up the compression short part of the skirt. Some of them have little pockets for this, but most don't. It almost never falls out, and really isn't that uncomfortalbe. But if I were a pro and had ballboys, I would choose to have the second ball tossed to me rather than have to hold it. But since I will never have ballboys at my matches, I just have to make do.
