    Prince Official - Racquets

    I'm a gamer and a computer programmer so I tend to treat tennis like it's a RPG. I bought the ported Phantom 100 when I decided to try to switch over. First off, it's a much heavier stick when it comes to swing weight. Honestly my ground strokes like the weight better but my serve hates it. My...

    Prince Official - Racquets

    I've got 3 in my car but I've been using a Phantom 100 for about a year now. I'm not sure if I've just gotten better at ground strokes because the Phantom is a heavier stick with more control or if I'd see the same results going back to the 100T ESP now. The 100T obviously produced a better...

    In/Out Device

    It's definitely got issues with shadows/poor lightning and when you block the sight of the camera. I'm not sure what else you'd expect from a single POV system. I'd rather focus on the fact that the calls you need help with are generally speaking not the ones that the device has issues with...

    In/Out Device

    After using it for about an hour, it seems pretty good. I don't think serve mode is ready though. It has a hard time figuring out which side you should be serving too. This led to some false out calls when it had determined the wrong box to use. I believe Hawkeye and other such systems handle...

    In/Out Device

    I received version 2 0 this week and the device itself seems solid and up to par durability wise. My first one had a wifi problem(wouldn't turn on) and he told me to send it back and he mailed me a replacement inside of a week. The replacement works as advertised. I've only logged one session...

    Large tennis ball pressurizer?

    I have 2 Corny Keg's. They work but finding the right hookups to connect it to your compressor can be a pain. Also ball removal is quite slow, you can't just dump them out.

    Advice for extreme heat and humidity

    Get some salt pills. I like a combo electrolyte pill but they can be expensive. If you're a profuse sweater then it's possible to lose like 1000 mg+ an hour. I'm Nadal like and my sweat is salty, I'd guess I'm in the 2k an hour loss area. I feel completely drained when I get home and just want...

    Why I Don't Trust The Speed Calculator

    I've used frame capture on my HD camera and a Playsight court at the same time. The video cap works just fine and lines up with Playsight. I'm not all that tall, 5'9 with fairly short arms and I can routinely serve at 102 with just my normal motion. The biggest my arm will support@age 36 is...

    Poll. Laver Cup World vs Europe isn´t working. What other kind of match-ups might work better?

    They should just cave in and make it team Nadal vs team Federer and keep the rivalry alive forever. Even when they retire they could still play a match every year. If you want to get even more intrigue, throw Djoker in and have a 3 team romp with the big 3 playing each other again once a year.

    Laver Cup Teaches Tennis a Number of Valuable Lessons

    The real point of the Laver Cup is to generate leverage for the players against the Majors. If the players can successfully run 1-4 highly profitable events per year and attract an income stream then it will bolster their position for a bigger cut of the pie. There's never been a mass walk out...

    USO 2019 SF: Nadal [2] vs. Berrettini [24]

    The patterns of play don't really support Berrettinni in this one. His best shot by far is that excellent inside in forehand that gets an extreme angle. Rafa is likely to never ever give him a wide ball in the duece court unless he's hitting a winner. I don't think he can play Rafa camped out in...

    "Today's 33 is our 27." - Ivan Lendl explaining the Great Age Shift in tennis.

    That's such a garbage statement. It's not about who doesn't make it. There's literally 200 more names that are under 35 that have peaked in the top 100 and then faded off. The logical argument is to look at the past and determine that the rate of successful players post 28+ has dramatically...

    Kyrgios is Finnish

    His backhand isn't good enough against people who can stretch him really wide. It's a good shot when he's on top of the ball but if his movement isn't 100% then it breaks down. His entire loss to Rublev was due to his backhand not firing correctly due to the pressure Rublev was maintaining...
