I'm kind of struck by the hostility of Phil here to the OP. I'm genuine in this inquiry, and it deserves the kind of respect you'd give anyone asking a sincere question.
What could a pro learn here on the message boards that they couldn't learn by talking to other pros, coaches, fitness trainiers, dieticians, and the professional stringers/racket techs, etc on the tour?
Those guys are surounded by tennis so they don't need to go online. We come here because we see other people who share our same hobby and the guy in the cube next to you is more likely to prefer football or NASCAR.
