Last week at the Australian Open, tennis star Maria Sharapova noticed an odd spot on the court. The area felt different than other parts of the court, and a tennis ball refused to bounce on the spot; it just stuck to the court. The area was a "dead spot," something not uncommon to tennis or basketball. Host Michele Norris talks to Joe Ure, director of distribution sales for Sport Court, about how a dead spot develops and how they are repaired.
