    Dampener
    ~noun
    1. Small rubber device which, at first, may seem insignificant. Mention it on Talk Tennis and you're in for a PhD in Physics.
    2. Small rubber device intended to dampen the vibration of tennis strings. It will do everything it takes to get out of your possession. Seasoned herbivorous tennis players tend to think these grow on grass.

    Swingweight
    ~noun
    1. Scale used to show your TTW peers how much of a bad4ss tennis players you're making them believe you can generate more racquet headspeed than Thor himself. It's well documented over threads discussing SW that "the more the merrier!". This is, in many ways, similar to men bragging about how much HP their car engine produces.
    The output on both cases is something hitting a fence.

    j011y Rig
    ~noun
    1. Hybrid string-job between Kevlar and Luxilon Alu popularized by the user j011y.
    Legend has it that he goes through one of these string-jobs under 30 minutes.

    Weak era

    - also known as Roger Federer era with 7 Wimbledons to prove

    - also known as Rafael Nadal era with 8 Roland Garros to prove

    Strong era

    - also known as Pete Sampras era with 7 Wimbledons to prove

    Strongest era

    - is when Philippoussis, Krickstein, Nalbandian, Davydenko et al had to face the stiffest competition of all time thus no slams! How could they?:wink:
