Minimum word length (3char) is kinda annoying, anyone else agree?

    Especially when there are so many popular key words like: "MP", "98" , "95", "93", "90", "88", "85", "IG", "PS", "OS", grip sizes and recently I came across another one "V1". Could TW please fix this? It would be much more convenient for us if you do so, cheers.

    In order to search 2 characters, type your search terms into Google followed by a space and then the following below:

    site:tt.tennis-warehouse.com

    Yup I know, but it's still less of a hassle if you could do it directly here. Plus, more importantly I was mainly referring to the specific forum search function while in google they mix all of them up...

    The "site:tt.tennis-warehouse.com" limits the search to only the forums but I think you are looking for a way to search sub forums?

    its super easy to go to google and type talk tennis and then what you are searching for. Actually very efficient. The first thing that comes up is the TT links.you just click "more from this forum" and it's done.

    Much faster then advanced search for me.

    It would be far easier to search ig using advanced search in the racquets section with at least 20 replies than to go through google.

    lol agree^

    I also just use google.

    Type "tt.tennis[space] "what-you-want-to-search"

    That works just as well.

    p.s.

    If you want to see more just click on "More results from tt.tennis-warehouse.com ยป"

    :)

    Maybe DireDesire will chime in but I don't see how you could do this with Google. Each thread has a unique ID but no URL identifer to limit the search on. You'll just have to wade through some extra search results I think.

    1000x agree this is annoying and I also hate having to wait 20 seconds to revise search.
