    2015 blade 18x20 cap grommets

    Hey, just wanna revive this thread because I'm having trouble finding 2015 Blade 98 18x20 grommets. Is there any consensus on what fit and what doesn't?

    Tennis Warehouse Playtest - Yonex REXIS & SPEED

    What string and gauge did you receive? I received Rexis Comfort in 1.30mm (16G) Did you install it as a full set or hybrid? I installed it as a hybrid. I use strung the racquet myself using a Gamma Progression II ELS If hybrid, what was the configuration (mains/crosses)/Racquet Used I ran...

    How to deal with hand pain?

    Interesting. If you have had problems with tennis elbow before as well, my assumption is that there is something going on with your stroke. Specifically that you may be tensing during contact and perhaps even actively trying to move your wrist when it should be passive. Your backhand is a 1...

    How to deal with hand pain?

    I'm sorry you are dealing with this hand pain. Things that keep you from enjoying tennis suck hard. Can I ask what type of forehand and backhand grip you are using? Different grips apply stress on different parts of the arm/hand. I would also say that you might want to practice having a...

    Do you cut the rest of your strings after playing and breaking your string? Does this prevent warping?

    Again, it is just good practice to cut it out. You may not be needed, but it is good to just get into the habit of cutting them no matter what. And it takes like 30 seconds max so it isn't like a big deal.

    Do you cut the rest of your strings after playing and breaking your string? Does this prevent warping?

    I think the general good practice is that once a string breaks, cut the rest of your strings as soon as you reasonably can. You don't have to restring it immediately or even pull out the strings, but you should cut them all. I don't think anyone has done a scientifically sound experiment to...

    Which grip do you use to start a rally?

    I think you are reading too much into this. Dropping the ball and feeding continental is just the superior way overall and it doesn't have to do with maintaining contact point. You can hit to any part of the court very easily, quickly, with different spins, and with not much effort. You can just...

    Rublev String

    I think you should watch his court level practice. He doesn't have huge net clearance, but he racks spin on the ball. He is definitely not a flat hitter like Medvedev or de Minaur.

    Rublev String

    Rublev is not a player who uses little spin........ It is quite the opposite. So I am not quite sure how you came to that conclusion.

    Elise Mertens racquet change 2021?

    I'm sorry, but I wasn't replying to you. And the question is, what compelled Mertens to do this. Why go behind Head and Babolat to do this rather than just speaking with them?

    Elise Mertens racquet change 2021?

    I mean.... It is a relevant and comparable situation. Player doesn't want to use racquet that they have a contract with, so they use a different one. Rublev had his blacked out, Mertens seems to have gone a different route. Why did one player do one thing and another did something different when...

    Elise Mertens racquet change 2021?

    I know....... but my point is for all of 2020 and even during the AO this year, he had a blacked out racquet.

    Elise Mertens racquet change 2021?

    Interesting. Then why do some players like Rublev completely black out their racquet and have no stencil when using a racquet from a different company, and others just paint over it and pretend nothing is wrong? There has to be some legal issues there. Babolat obviously can't prevent Mertens or...

    Elise Mertens racquet change 2021?

    Weird. So I am guessing Head got permission from Babolat to paint the PureAero like a speed and put the stencil on? Very strange.

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    I never said he wasn't doing well. I am sure he is doing great. I am just saying his video with MEP isn't going to be raking in these huge sums of cash like the other commenter claims. It's not like he will suddenly have enough to stop making videos.
