    He is using a black mid racquet with no stencils. I also noticed lead tapes on 9 and 3:00.

    How can flipper not have a racket sponser after his tennis achievements, rankings and most importantly fan appeal ? Maybe he has demanded too much $$$ for any of the sponsor manufactures ? I do like his stealth paintjob :)

    anyone remember the posts a few years ago on here talking about how Philippoussis actually bought his racquets from Tennis Warehouse bc he wasn't sponsored by Dunlop or whomever anymore?

    Nate Ferguson took the time to answer a ton of technical questions for TW posters last year, here's a link just in case anyone missed it.

    Hard to believe that Flipper gets his frames the same way we do. But after that, the frames go under the knife...

    That's because the link to the old board doesn't work most of the time.

    It's been like this for months - looks like no-one wants to bother to fix it.

    Lead TAPE. Not tapes. Get it right.
     
  10. The old board has worked for me every time for months. Get a better ISP.
