Michelle, the faceless Blogger
 
So I know TW staff has been busy between IW and getting new stock in.

BUT I think it's a terrible oversight not to have Michelle listed under the Bloggers and have a little Bio movie so we know who she is.

After all, she's blogging up a storm and, to this day, remains faceless to us poor hacks.

NYC,

Don't worry! I am currently in the process of creating a Meet the Playtester blog for Michelle with an interview and video. She is on her first playtest video today! Her Bio will be up probably around next week on both the blog and on our website!

Brittany, TW

Thanks for the shout out ;)

And I'm an open book, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask...if you can't tell yet, I'm super passionate about tennis and feel so lucky to be part of the amazing TW team! I've spent my life playing tennis and being around tennis and am still learning so much every day!

Like Brittany said, just did my first video review today! :)

Strings are changing the game! ;) Plus, I enjoy polys, and Black Shark has tested (and played) really well on the spin charts! Really enjoyed this string!

As far as racquets go, I will be on the Gamma RZR 95 review next. And a bunch of shoes coming up too.

You enjoy polys? What tension do you string your racquets on? I have never seen a rec player of any kind use poly more than 50 pounds. :)

Gamma RZR 95? I remember seeing Brittany review the Gamma RZR 98. That had a stiffness rating of 73! :shock:

I hope your upper body is ready for it.... :|

Hmmm...well I wouldn't consider myself a rec player...and I'm immune to stiffness ;)

Yep, love polys! I string my polys around 60 lbs usually. I have the Dunlop F5.0 Tour with Black Shark at 60lbs (what I used on the video; also playtested it at 58lbs in my Pure Drive), and my Pure Drives have Yonex Pro Poly at 60lbs and Spiky Shark at 58lbs.

I saw most of my wear and tear in my body in my college playing days and can handle it (I've been hitting the weights 3x week to be sure of it!), it works for my game ;)

yep :) Brittany and I cross paths in a few ways actually ;) I started coaching the high school team she played for right AFTER she graduated and headed up to Cal Poly ;)

I played for (and later, coached) the Lobos ;)

I'm actually very interested to hear about the yonex poly. I strung some up at the ITA National indoors, and it felt very unique. Pretty slippery, one of the easiest poly strings I've done to date. If you've got any first cut impressions, please share!
