    Oreilly Opelka - A future Sampras or yet another American serve bot?

    Garbage servebot. Nobody would know his name if he were 5’11”.

    What Sunscreen Do You Recommend?

    Coppertone sport lotion works well. It stays on through sweat and light toweling. It also doesn’t have oxybenzone which has been found to be a strong and prevalent hormone disruptor.

    Round poly with long playability duration

    Solinco Outlast. It's a pretty dead string to begin with, so the playability remains constant. And if you use a thin gauge at a low tension, its got nice pocketing and comfort (for a poly).

    OK, I also want a 100mph serve! Suggestions please

    Tourna 300 CS crank stringing machine

    I Want A 120 MPH Serve

    You only get a couple inches off the ground when you serve. I’m not saying height off the ground is the end all (Pancho Gonzales other old school pros used to drop bombs and they were prohibited from leaving the ground) but it definitely adds pace and can make up for other technical...

    Has Spin Obsession Caused Tennis to Regress???

    Regarding amateurs, the vast majority don’t have the RHS to benefit from poly strings. So it makes sense that you play better with other string set ups. Regarding the effect of poly on the pro game, I think you’re way off base. Poly gives them more control, not less. Back in the day when...

    Help with Sunscreen, It is Summer in Canada

    I wear a hat so I don’t need to put sunscreen on my forehead. If you hate hats you should try a mineral sunscreen, but most don’t seem to have the staying power if a sport sunscreen.
