Paralympics: Vergeer wins 4th gold in a row! def. van Koot 60/63

This match was broadcasted live on Dutch tv. It was hard to see the ball, but Vergeer was just better at every aspect.
Aniek 3 games

Gold, silver and bronze for The Netherlands

watching on uk channel 4, the ball is only the slightest bit visible, i can make out its shadow more than the ball itself, court has too much glare in the sun. why use this surface for a televised paralympic event??

I guess they don't want the grass to be destroyed.

You can't play wheelchair tennis on grass, it's too slippery.
