    Joe strings racquets at a local shop where I live. He's a pretty cool guy and loves to tell customers stories about his trips to NY and the Aussie Open in Melbourne.

    Zvonerava's racquet.During the Federer/Djoko. semi-final in the Open, McEnroe makes a comment about the "lousy" string jobs, because of Zvonerava's strings breaking. Those comments hurts the hard working stringers that take pride in there work,especially when McEnroe has no confirmation on precisely what happened. From previous tournaments she had similar problems with the throat pieces causing string breakage early, and had nothing to do with the stringers.Since McEnroe is a celebrity, people listen to him and that comment went out to millions. Its not good to hear those kind of remarks.Its ashame a message could not get to McEnroe about his poor comments.

    Yep, Joe is a very knowledgeable, super nice guy. He answered many of my questions about stringers and stringing before I bought one. Nice to see him getting a little recognition for his passion.

    I listened to John McEnroe about playing with light rackets. Thanks for the Golfer's Elbow John!
