The four major professional tennis tournaments consist of the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open. These four major tournaments are considered the "Grand Slam" tournaments.
The Australian Open is the first of the four to be played each year, with the event occurring in the second half of January.

Wimbledon, the third Grand Slam of the year, takes place shortly after the French Open. It occurs from late June to early July.

How much rubber is in a tennis ball?
Tennis balls are made of a layer of rubber surrounding a hollow center. Then they put a thin layer of adhesive on the rubber and cover it with a layer of felt (usually yellow). The letters that you may see on the felt are just black ink. The air pressure inside the ball is 12 psi (pounds per square inch) greater than ambient air pressure at sea level (the 'normal' air pressure all around you). The ambient air pressure is 14.7 psi, so all together, the pressure inside the ball is 26.7 psi. I'm not quite sure what you mean by the 'amount of air inside the ball,' but you can figure out how much space is in the ball using the equation for the volume of a sphere (4/3*pi*r^3). A tennis ball that I have here is 2 1/4 inches across, with 1/8 inch thick rubber all around. So the open space inside is 2 inches across (the diameter is 2 inches). The radius (r) is half of that, so r=1 inch. So the volume of the inside of the ball is 4/3*pi (pi=3.14) inches^3 = 4.2 inches^3. (You would say this as 4.2 cubic inches of open space.)
What does the second place winner of the Australian Open tennis match get paid?
1.15 million dollars
How can you anticipate your opponent's next shot in tennis?
Keep your feet moving and watch your opponent's body language. These are the two major keys to anticipating your opponent's next shot. Make sure to do a split-step every time your partner makes contact with the ball. A split-step allows you to be in balance, on the balls of your feet, and ready to move any direction. Observe professional tennis players and you will notice that they do this every time. Make sure to split step when your opponent serves as well. Check out your opponent

How do you get involved in tennis tournaments for Junior players?
Junior tennis players are those players that are 18 years or younger. Competitive Junior tennis tournaments typically are adminstered through the United States Tennis Association. You need to join the United States Tennis Assocation (USTA) in order to play.
You can go to tournaments in your city, surrounding area, state, and other states. Usually you start off with local and state tournaments. A record is kept of your wins and losses. This is used to rank you as a player in your region or state. Some tournaments are "closed" and are invitation only. These are for players that have won qualifying tournaments in order to gain entrance to this championship type tournament.
If you do very well you can also play in tournaments that are on a national level. Older Juniors that are close to the age of 18 can qualify to play in Junior Grand Slam tournaments such as the Junior Wimbledon tournament.
Age groups and birth date specifications are listed at www.usta.comNOTELet's not assume that everyone is American. In the real world (where California and Maine are not the extremities of the Earth) currently only 11.5% of the top 100 ranked junior tennis players are American. A different process may be involved for junior players in different countries.

Is Libel hard to prove in court?
No, it is not very hard to prove. If you look up the part that states what classifies as labeling in the constitution act and match it to your situation a good judge would understand it and rule it for you. A bad judge would find ways to discredit it even though he or she knows that you are correct and within the law. Usually when they use it against you, it means that they are not being bias and they are with the other party and they are hoping for the other party to win. Going to hire courts won't help because if it is decided for you to fail all parties already agreed on it and it is a waste of time for you and a lot of negative energy that will drain you because they will keep it up until you are totally drained and eventually you give up or kill yourself from all the stress they have caused you and the realization that there is no justice in this world.
a good example of labeling that should be illegal under our law but is overlooked is when doctors label their patients and call it a mental disorder to bypass the law. There is no lupul to the law. A good judge with integrity should know that. Especially when someone is getting hurt by it. Another example is when the government calls regular good citizens that report illegal acts "whistleblowers". They should know that labeling is illegal. When a government official breaks the law the punishment should be double or triple the punishment of a regular citizen because they have studied the law, they know the law and they are in a position of power.
