Post your tennis shop horror stories here. I'll start: I had dropped off two rackets to be strung before a level 1 tournament (eastern section). This was on tuesday, and the owner of the shop told me they'd be ready friday. On the way to my first match, I stopped by the shop to pick up the rackets and was first told they weren't ready. Even though I already paid for the stringing, I told him i wanted them back because I was so angry that they weren't ready. I wan't goinjg to give this shop any more business. When the owner went to go get them, he came back emtyhanded and told me I had picked them up the day before. He showed me some piece of paper saying the cashier had marked them picked up or whatever. I certainly had not picked my rackets up. I called my mom and my two sisters and they hadn't picked the rackets up either. Even though I had been a customer for a few years, he would not replace my rackets. He wasn't budging either. I guess he was nice enough to refund my money for the stringing but I still had no rackets. (we're still disputing with cc company) Not only was I late for my match, I only had one racket for the tournament and the strings broke at 1-1 in the first set. The club (and usta official) was nice enough to let me use a demo but it was crappy and I ended up losing to a kid i had beaten many times.
