    Where is the best tennis city in the world?

    Yep. It’d been around since the 70s.....everyone was bummed. The whole apartment community is still called The Village. It just doesn’t have a tennis center or clubhouse anymore.

    Where is the best tennis city in the world?

    You mean The Village. I loved going there, and the pros were great (randomly ran into one I hadn't seen in years at a HS court this weekend), but they bulldozed the clubhouse and courts about three years ago to make room for more a lucrative venture (I believe taller mixed-use...

    Where is the best tennis city in the world?

    I live in Lake Highlands now but have lived in Plano, in downtown Dallas and Addison area in the past. I live really close to Fair Oaks Tennis Center. The people who run it are nice and laid back, but it was built in a floodplain and is regularly unplayable. And the bugs can be terrible. LB...

    Where is the best tennis city in the world?

    Dallas resident here. I am not sure I'd put us in the top 3. Some great country club/private club facilities, but the public facilities, at least in Dallas proper, are lacking. Most of the park courts are either, as you say, always packed or their chain link fence nets that still get ruined by...

    Beyond the Playtest: Yonex Extended EZONE Tennis Racquets (& all the chatter about longer racquets)

    A great listen. I currently play with the prior EZONE 98+. Can’t wait to impulsively buy the new one at 2am some time soon. Agree with (I think it was) Troy that a VCORE Pro 97 extended would be something I’d want to try.

    What is the Best Racket for a 2 Handed Forehand?

    Reviving this thread. I've hit with soooo many racquets over the years. My favorites: Yonex EZONE 98+ (black and blue version): Literally had never gotten to a singles tournament semifinal in 4.0 in my life. Won the first tournament I played after switching to this stick. Comfortable, stable...

    Rdis 100 MP. Apologies for leaving out the "100" in my original post.

    2018 WTA US Open Discussion Thread

    The silver lining in all of this is that, as far as I can tell, there is no real victim in this. Naomi idolizes Serena and, I assume, doesn't hold anything against her for the spectacle she created. Could you imagine if Serena were playing someone who wasn't so warm towards her. I mean...

    2018 WTA US Open Discussion Thread

    But to follow up when I'm not on a mobile device...... Most on that list have at least acknowledged that Serena didn't handle the situation well. Unless you can point me in the direction of a quote, she has not said anything even implying, as it relates to the drama, she is anything other than...
