    Why the Outrageous Racket Prices?

    My current racquets are the Yonex Duel G 97 310 and Tour G 310. One was bought through TW’s used supply and the other from this board’s Classifieds section**....both within the last year and both for under $100 apiece. They are two and three, respectively, generations old but were delivered in...

    Has anyone heard of the Prince Lightning XX?

    This was the string that my friend who was a HS tennis coach recommended to me when I first started playing a decade ago. Because it was the only string I used when I was learning to play, it is sort of to this day my default string....at least the default string in my head, that I compare other...

    Two Handed Forehand !!!

    I get what you’re saying. But there are going to be pros and cons to every grip combination. Santoro, Dome and Seles hit the ball with more topspin than you or Peng, so getting under the ball isn’t a problem for them. In the same way that you accept that you can’t hit with slice with your grips...

    Two Handed Forehand !!!

    I'm saying the you've named one player of the dozen or so that have been posted here that hit with your approximate grips/technique. So I'm not sure how that translates into you saying that your way of hitting the shot is the "right" way. Monica Seles is an all time great, and her forehand had a...

    Two Handed Forehand !!!

    I stand corrected on that part of my post. Though my comment was more a statement on the bounce of the surface, not its speed. The rest of my points stand. My main point being that to act like the above is the ideal way to play the two-handed forehand is silly. Especially when none of the top...

    Two Handed Forehand !!!

    I'd say that the fact that you are unable to use slice at all with your grips is a knock against it. Every video you've posted, as far as I can tell, have you playing on clay where the ball just sits up for you. I'd like to see how your grips actually handle a low skidding ball on a non-clay...

    Can an intermediate player use an "advanced player's racquet"?

    Play with what you want. I played with a Yonex RDIS 100 MP (>11.5 oz, 98 sq in) when I was still a 3.0. Not a lot of easy power in that racquet but some good mass/stability. Would I have probably won more matches playing with a powerful, stiff oversize racquet? Probably. But I enjoyed the feel...

    FAA going in on Kyrgios

    Seeing that Felix said this over a year ago, he's had plenty of time to reply. OP doing so low-effort sh*t stirring with this thread.

    What do you guys think of Ben Rothenberg?

    I left the conversation. You bring my name back up. You get the Ignore (my first in probably five years.) Your condescension is intolerable. Seriously.

    What do you guys think of Ben Rothenberg?

    If you say so. Be well.

    What do you guys think of Ben Rothenberg?

    I imagine Rothenberg/you(?) did not intend for Adler to get fired. But just know that the power that weaponizing racism accusations have in certain parts/industries in the Twitter age. I truly wish the kids would stop giving the right martyrs and stop ceding them any moral high ground.
