    Yes, some of those were the paint jobs of the Ti.Radical Team. It's one of my favorite racquets of all time (including the paint jobs)!

    Pickleball is spreading

    Today I've learned that 2 of the 3 nearby tennis courts have now been proclaimed into pickleball only :( All 3 have recently been painted with the pickle lines, but now this crap !?*#$! What the hell makes them special? It's everyone's park and they were welcomed to the tennis courts, yet it...

    What is the GS totals of the Big 3 if Djokovic's and Federer's age were swapped?

    About 30 Djokovic, 12 Nadal, 8 Federer. Ned gets crushed by more experienced Djo a lot in the beginning of the career, even on clay. Fed gets crushed by both, until fully developed. Eventually Nole retires at large margin, so the other 2 have to deal only with each other.

    Strings that lost their “snap back”. What does it mean?

    It's the loss of tension in mains and increase in friction from crosses. You can try to prestretch the Alu and string slightly higher and string the OGSM slightly lower. Even better would be to use the Isospeed Baseline as the cross. It's almost as soft as syn, but way more slippery. Still...

    104in racquets - are they Ok for 40+- years old amateur/intermediate players ?

    It's mostly a myth. The circumference of a 104 frame's hoop is ~72", the 98 is ~70". That gives you the frontal area increase of only ~1in², or 3%. I'd speculate that most of people actually notice the twist weight increase, rather than the wind resistance. Of course, the TW is less intuitive...
