Now to the gut/poly setup. It was very nice but I like the poly/gut setup best still. The serve is better with gut mains but volleys were not as good. Spin is better with the poly mains. Against a very consistent player, I needed to volley much better than I did last night. My flat forehand never really got going last night, could have been the opponent though so I'm not going to pin that on the setup just yet. Best thing about this setup is no elbow pain after the match or this morning.
Interesting. You start to notice what separates a 4.5 and a 5.0 is consistency.
