    This is exciting news! Hopefully players like Mirza won't end up having knee and wrist surgeries around age 20 anymore.

    Threads like this are great when people dig them up with searches 8 months later.

    That is the second one OP has tried today.

    My brilliant attempt yesterday was deleted almost instantaneously (even though it was already April 1 in some parts of the world). Life is so unfair.

    And Yonex revisits the Carbonex line.

    SS had me going. I actually thought, for one brief shining moment, that both tours had discovered where the leak was and were going to fix tennis. Oh well back to reality (sucks).

    The Speedport Woodies will crumble after 1 hit because of the drilling.

    If you leave them around, they will crumble because of termites.

    The Prince Woodie II will require a signed statement from the purchaser that they will use Viagra before a match.
