I didn't even know that this existed, and it's pretty curious, does anyone know if it is popular between blind people?

My beautiful Sabine took my YouTube suggestion and served blind! She's so gorgeous. Looking into her eyes is like looking into her soul :drool:

I find this clip very interesting .
imagine how difficult it must be to have to guess where the ball is landing thanks to its sound .. the 'feel' you have to have .. also how to control your strength ..
it's kinda fascinating

Thats incredible. I have no idea how they do it, but I have mad respect for them.

Is it a different type of ball? It seems to move slower/bounce lower.

Thats really awesome! I have seen clips of blind football (where your team mates do help you out by making noise) but never thought there would be blind tennis.

I can`t imagine how they do it but I think it`s really astonishing!:)

The most impressive thing is that they know where the ball is gonna land before it does so, probably because the sound of the opponent's racquet, which is awesome.

See guys, Navratilova isn't lying. The sound the racket makes when striking the ball is important, and shrieking is unfair. Shrieking needs to be banned.

Interesting vid.
Not to take anything away, but I suppose they are not completely blind. It seems that they can distinguish the lines and objects.
