While it tennis coaches are tennis coaches are always looking looking for ways to lift players to the highest They are using high-tech motion censors to pinpoint players problems up a better game. Researchers are trying to find the key to a winning serve. With motion censors measuring censors measuring nuances in they are trying they are trying to capture what cannot be seen with the naked eye. A tennis serve naked eye. A tennis serve is a very fast action and we could provide information to the coaches and the athletes about what is happening, what the small-fast movements about. The Griffith University them has spent years working on the sister. Censors measure movement and send it to a send it to a court-side computer.. it is very easy when you hit a winning shot to know hat that feels to know hat that feels like but when you are a player does not really know what is right or wrong right or wrong this kind of feedback feedback from the technology will tell you. The information is then made into graphs so graphs so performance can be judged gains at select group of elite players. If it of elite players. If it does not match there is room for improvement It does not matter what level, elite, still you can get a shot, you can see your results on this screen. Researchers say it is a cheap, fast way players from all over the country.. the player gets better and better so better and better so quick. You get 0.1 of a second to pick something up so if computer and see it over 5 second on it makes life a lot easier. The first results will be analysed later this month and if the month and if the censors prove successful a wider group of players will be put to the test. With just over to the test.

I never thought country. I never thought it would be such a giant step you know. Football has potential of bridging the potential of bridging the gap between different races. Mola was a star during apartheid but never represented his country because of strict's sporting Australian-produced documentary examines how black and discrimination. Kept from playing with other races and banned from the the play for their own authorities felt that there would not be too much harm in giving blacks and coloureds dust bowls to play dust bowls to play their football matches in. While race no longer race no longer divides South African football poverty does and most black children still play in the dirt. Junior teams had hoped the vast of money invested in South Africa for the World Cup would eventually filter would eventually filter down to them. There is no feared there will be little sting legacy for future generations. What is generations. What is going to take place beyond this event? I must be honest event? I must be honest with you, not just too happy way things are happening, yes, as far as development is concerned. So he concerned. So he is doing what he can to champions. He is hoping his talent and experience rub off rub off on some of these underprivileged young players. To the - through this morning fog beautiful day emerged. In the
