What brand would you buy most of? Just curious. For me it would be HEAD. Then save $200,000 for college. Then if I got through college I would save the rest for the future(and re-stringing lol)

If I had a million dollars I would not be spending very much of it on tennis equipment. I would do just fine with the racquets I have right now. I would probably spend some money on good instruction though.

You havn't heard?! Supposedly the Ferrari F1 Turbo makes a great racquet for 4.0+ players.

Wilson. Investing a million dollars is just about the only way to wind up with 3 Wilson frames that are at least somewhat close to each other, right?

Like Wilson too.

$100,000 in head prestige tours? What a noble cause.

hehe. Ferrari rackets. It would be kinda cool if rackets were made from car parts and the grip was made of racing sliks. Could be cool as a novelty Item.

Peter Gibbons: What would you do if you had a million dollars?
Lawrence: I'll tell you what I'd do, man: two chicks at the same time, man.
Peter Gibbons: That's it? If you had a million dollars, you'd do two chicks at the same time?
Lawrence: Damn straight. I always wanted to do that, man. And I think if I were a millionaire I could hook that up, too; 'cause chicks dig dudes with money.
Peter Gibbons: Well, not all chicks.
Lawrence: Well, the type of chicks that'd double up on a dude like me do.
Peter Gibbons: Good point.
Lawrence: Well, what about you now? what would you do?
Peter Gibbons: Besides two chicks at the same time?
Lawrence: Well, yeah.
Peter Gibbons: Nothing.
Lawrence: Nothing, huh?
Peter Gibbons: I would relax... I would sit on my *** all day... I would do nothing.
Lawrence: Well, you don't need a million dollars to do nothing, man. Take a look at my cousin: he's broke, don't do sh*t.

i had to write one in: donnay (the belgian ones). bought a used belgian formula pro off **** and the chinese-made donnays are nice, but this one smokes them!!!

buy as many racquet company shares as possible

The correct grammar is "If you were to have", I believe. Had is past tense.

If I were to have 1 million just for tennis equipment, I'd create my own racquets.

.

Actually I think it is correct as written. The sentence is using a second conditional. The second condtitional is used to talk about things that are improbable in the present or future. If + subject + simple past verb is the correct grammar.

You can read about it here

I have 100+ rackets in a closet and let me tell you it's not a pretty sight. I've got lots of the oldies but goodies as well as plenty of the newer players frames. I'd love to sell some of them but just haven't had the time. Right now I'm using the Pure Storm Team and perfectly happy. The only frame I'd consider investing in is the early Austrian Prestige Classic 600. I've only ever had one of those in my possession and it was better than any of the Prestiges since -- stiffer and more headlight and with the sweetest feel.

Umm if i had a million dollars, i would buy like 3 or 4 K90s, and then with 999,000 i would go to NEWKS and get started with a pro career.

I would put everything into lessons/traveling and become pro.
