    i like my gut/poly set.. it has amazing spin when slice my serve out wide and kicker serve! baseline hit would just drop a foot long from the line. superb control and feel. i like my game improvement on this one. its just that all of my matches would come down to tie breaker and lost. bummer!

    Maybe its the sock you wear, the string set up sounds awesome.

    From the way you describe it, it doesn't sound like your strings are the problem. Maybe you just have trouble playing tiebreakers and you get nervous when the game comes down to one.

    i guess so.. do you guys believe on good luck charm that goes to your equipment from head to toe including tennis racquet and string?

    i have a 5.0 friend would cut his string if he losses. nothings wrong with his strokes, just doesnt get the W. Just like the Lakers, they have everything! Just doesnt get the W.

    Did you know that in a tie-break the court shrinks a little and the net is raised ever so slightly?

    First of all, the Lakers don't have everything. They have a 40 plus year old point guard, and aging super star in Kobe, who has said that next year will be his last season.

    Second of all, you lose the match so you cut your strings out... Yes, let's all blame our equipment because we lose close matches.
