    TW closing doors?

    OK...let's see how I did with my thread here...and what have we learned here. If one is already aware of TWs "liquidation", then the email offer will of course not be ambiguos (imagine that!). Does this imply that the next time I get any promotional offers from any vendor indicating...

    TW closing doors?

    Uh, then the wording in your promotional distributions needs to be less ambiguos.

    TW closing doors?

    Prolly not, but I got a promo email from TW worded as follows: Sale Tennis Warehouse up to 75% off everything in liquidation

    Wow...the thread is still going... It would appear that you have reached a milestone with your 2hbh...congrats! I knew you would eventually figure it out (don't think, just hit). Sill more to learn tho... f1

    Gah! My Aim On My Serve Is Way Off.

    Assuming a flattish serve... There are essentially two ways to apply lateral directional control to a serve shot: "golfer" versus "quarterback". Golfer method is easiest to learn. Just learn to hit the ball with one service motion and aim by simply rotating your pre serve stance left or...

    Flat Serve: How large is the window above the net?

    A reasonable "target window" to aim at for hard flat serves is 1 to 12 inches above the net chord. However, I'd say the spread angle or "shot grouping" of the "average club player" attempting to hit hard flat serves is probably in the neighborhood of about 18 to 24 inches.

    Agassi's Comment

    What's there to elaborate on...unless you think he is being dishonest with his comments or you don't think he knows what he is talking about? On his 2hb, his dominant arm is also his prominant (fh) one. Personally, I'm glad he made those comments. I hit 2hb similar to his and have always...

    High weight low reps, or low weight high reps?

    He is...and he isn't. The one think we can all be "sure" about is that everyone responds differently to training. What you need to do is... 1. Define as clearly as possible, your resistence training objectives. 2. Create or adopt a resistence training program most likely to meet those...

    How important is it to stick to one racket?

    Better players (or really bad ones or just newbies) are the ones more likely to have the ability to use different racquets without much if any adverse affects on their game. Consider yourself fortunate since it means you aren't slaved to a single frame to play the game very well. The opposite...

    How to remove paint from a racquet?

    Fine grit bead blaster should do the trick. Fast, easy, no toxic chemicals, and very easy to control how much of the finish you want to remove. The end result will also produce a finish that is very clean, uniform and satiny.

    when serving a basket of balls...

    EXACTLY! In terms of serve practice, quality and quantity are not mutually exclusive concepts. One of the things I was also doing during 3 to 4 hundred ball practice sessions was make some changes in the technique too. It takes LOTS of repetition for the new techniques to become permanent...

    when serving a basket of balls...

    Fortunately, I don't hit that many serves anymore since I'm now past the development stage. At my peak, I was hitting about 1000 serves a week for about a month. The arm and shoulder were sore for about 2 months, but not anymore! Nowadays, I hit about 300 practice serves per week. In my...

    when serving a basket of balls...

    Serve practice is similar to jogging/running. The more you hit, the better your power and endurance will get. Some recommendations for you: To accelerate the development process, use a racquet that is heavier than the one you normally play with. Just lead up one of your racquets and...
