    Sampras tweener?

    Never saw him do a tweener, only a couple of behind the back shots, like this one: <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Wilson has resurrected the K Six One 95 (18x20) from the grave!

    Wilson should bring back a proper boxed beam heavy pro staff, like the old 6.0 95 - in fact, they should bring back both 6.0's 85 and 95

    Cheapest Pro Racket

    I don't know his name, I would say that top doubles player who uses Decathlon's Artengo racquets. You cannot go cheaper than that

    Which modern racquets do you think will be future classics down the road?

    Wilson KPS 88. And yes, I bought one with that idea in my mind

    Great new Becker interview: "Pete had the greatest serve of all time"

    claiming Ivanisevic was a better server than Sampras, that's one I never understand. He served faster, and hit more aces, but double faulted a lot, and it's a big a lot. His variety wasn't very good too, basically choose a corner and go for it I would compare his serve to Rusedski's, has both...

    Great new Becker interview: "Pete had the greatest serve of all time"

    Sampras could serve with huge power whenever he wanted or needed to. Power wasn't his priority, but the guy had both 1st and 2nd. serves clocked over 140 mph, that's over 225 kmh. His average was a bit lower, but at least in my book, power isn't the main thing that defines a great serve. Sam...

    Great new Becker interview: "Pete had the greatest serve of all time"

    I never said he did it constantly, or 135 was his average serve speed. He did it when he felt he needed to, and it was more than once in an entire tournament.

    Great new Becker interview: "Pete had the greatest serve of all time"

    Not even close. Karlovic has a big first flat serve because he is that tall, so he has a serve has a good has many tall guys on the tour. Would you put Isner or Opelka serves on the same level of Sampras ? Yes, he serves faster that Sampras did in his days, but speed is not the only thing that...

    Classic racquet recommendations?

    There aren't to many 85-90 sq.i. classic frames out there KPS is an option, but it's a completely different animal, compared to the PS 85. It's a log of a racquet, even balanced, and way stiffer. My two cents would be PS 90 (most people say the K 90 is the best option, and the last generations...

    Which Donnay model did Sampras use?

    I don't have a clue, I'm not a Donnay racquets expert, or a Sampras freak., so this is all the information I can give you

    Do you have extra bumper and grommets for your frames?

    I stashed extra sets of grommets/bumpers for my racquets since they are out of production for a long time (Pro Staff 6.0 95), and spare parts for these are very rare and too expensive. I had to import them from US (I'm from Portugal), that cost me a lot in shipping fees, but I have no regrets...
