    It's a conspiracy I tell you!

    Babolat starting clamp

    I've never used a Babolat but as is obvious from the responses (Mr. Parnell in particular) their quality is very difficult to match. I have owned the two spring Alpha/RAB starting clamp for the last 8 years and it has never failed me. I'll have to order a Babolat next, just to add one of...

    The Most Prestigous/Highly Valued Grand Slam?

    Can we blame you for your atrocious spelling?

    Gut/Poly - when the poly goes dead

    I have a good example of this, have a Technifibre 320 with Klip Armour Pro mains with Redcode crosses, don't really remember the tension (around 58 I think) but I strung it at least 3 years ago. Took a while off of tennis to focus on university studies, and have started playing again recently...

    Knoxville, TN

    Anyone on the boards from the Knoville/Oak Ridge area? I'm going to be in that area this summer for an internship, and am looking for partners to hit around with.

    People are ONLY UPSET at the footfault call because it was a "SLEIGHT FOOTFAULT"

    +1. Steady Eddy, you're just wrong on so many levels of this argument.

    String samples from Alpha?

    I just sent Mark an email with the types of strings I was using at the time and possible choices I thought I'd like and let him pick specifically what to send. If I remember correctly, I got: 3 Vengeance 3 Sphere 2 Gut 2000 2 Tenacity This was with an Apex 2, however, so with the DC+ you may...

    Why was Friends so popular?

    Not my favorite show ever (not even top 10), but I think it's pretty good. Joey and Chandler were hilarious, I couldn't stand Ross. Two hot chicks plus a decently funny Phoebe, and the show is pretty solid. Not great, but solid.

    Watson proves GOLF is not a sport..

    It's hilarious and tragic, at the same time. Absolutely mind boggling.

    Watson proves GOLF is not a sport..

    Now you're just trying to pick arguments. There is no way this can make sense, even in your head. Howe scored 96 points at age 51, it's incredible. Watson plays a good tourney at age 59, also incredible. Both are something you don't often (read: never) see, but they happened, and they...

    Alpha Apex 2 on "backorder!?"

    The Apex 2 was like this last year when I ordered mine as well. There were 5 coming in in early June and people had been waiting on the waiting list for a few months for them, and all five were spoken for. I was the first back-up on the waiting list. When they came in, turned out that one...

    Watson proves GOLF is not a sport..

    Gordie is an exception, JUST LIKE WATSON IS AN EXCEPTION. He is not consistently at the top of the leaderboard, and neither are ANY players over the age of 50. Watson is NOT among his best in his 50's. He had ONE good tournament at a course that suits his game perfectly. He even said himself...

    Watson proves GOLF is not a sport..

    You can play tennis hammered off your ass, you just won't be very good. Trust me, I've tried. Same with golf. You can (most recreational males do) play drunk, but it usually doesn't end up well. Golf is a sport, or a recreation, it just depends on HOW one plays. Professional golfers do not...

    Most ridiculous sport?

    Why is this? Apart from one being fast paced and one being slow paced, tennis and golf are remarkably similar. Mainly individual sports (save for doubles), heavily momentum-influenced, and one must be very strong mentally in order to be good at either one. Also, it is very, very easy to...

    As if Federer's ego couldn't get even larger!

    So much for Federer's ego. More like OTHER PEOPLE celebrating his dominance. Notice how not ONE of the things you listed involved Roger actually doing or saying something about his own accomplishments...
