    According to fedace, the green string is a prototype that falls in between tour bite and tour bite soft in terms of stiffness

    it looked more like yellow to me, not neon green.
    I liked it. I'd like to try that string.
    Anyone know when it will be available for us?

    This. Basketball and both kinds of football over tennis anyday in any American high school.

    I think we also have to factor in that tennis is a sport you can really get rich in from nothing more than your results.
    Look at athletes in non-traditional sports like gymnastics and ice skating. They have about a 4 year window to be at their peak.. and the only people in those sports that make money are Olympic champs off endorsements.. not prize money.
    You make the first round of a slam, your making more money in that one day of play than some athletes in sports make from prize money in a year.

    So this news gets around to places that have never had tennis systems like Russia, China, Bulgaria, Serbia... etc etc etc etc.. you have a lot of Ova's and ic's making bank.
    It's not that American doesn't put money in tennis.. it's not that England and Australia and France don't either.. It's a global sport, now. More so than ever before.. and people from countries with no economy can rise out of poverty by playing well and being hungry. American's are just now starting to get hungry again, don't you think? The American economy is not exactly where it used to be. And more and more players are not coming to the US to learn tennis.. you have academies all over the world producing great players.

    ok.. I step off my opinionated soap box. lol

    I wish this kid would get his game and life together. So much talent if he'd get out his own way.

    Most likely dropped by Nike. Lotto is the ATP's clothing partner, I doubt that he gets much more than gear + bonus

    Definitely. One of Nike's biggest risks that blew up.

    Good info - never knew that. Lotto has had a lot of nice stuff over the yrs.

    The Donald will be in the 30s when the FO is over with! The Donald has had a rough time on the Pro Tour since John McEnroe anointed him the next top 5 U.S. men's player when he was finishing up his Junior and turn pro around 17 years old. It just did not work out for The Donald until this year and his career is starting to turn around again at age 24! Very tough road too! He even had to go and play the Future Circuit to get back on the Pro Tour Main Ladder - Challenger Circuit in other words.

    ?????

    Where are u getting this stuff?? He'll be around 65 when the rankings come out on Mon.

    How old are u?? Were u following tennis in 2011 when he made it to the 4th rd at the US Open?? And finished the yr in the top 40??

    Lastly, he never dropped back down to the Futures circuit.

    Hope this helps.
