    Different versions of Rossignol F200

    i never realised the Diva was considered rare. I have one here in my bag. Nice stick - need to play around with the strings a little.

    Different versions of Rossignol F200

    Oh my mistake. I thought you were speaking about the first waves of the F series which the F200 came from. In this latter case I'm not much help - I wasn't playing a lot of tennis at the time and wasn't keeping track of what was out there. Am I right in thinking the Vectris line also appeared in...

    Different versions of Rossignol F200

    The FT's were much later frames. I think for their era they were still reasonably soft but they were nothing like the old F series frames. The FT5.80 is a very sweet stick though.

    How much potential does Seb Korda have?

    I've really enjoyed seeing him play. He has the same effortless game his dad had but it seems safer and more solid overall. I think Carlos Alcaraz is shaping up to be a sensation, Jannick Sinner already has a lot of you think Korda belongs in the same conversation? I do.

    Alcaraz is everything.

    I first noticed him at the tournament where Nadal thrashed him on his birthday. I thought then, even despite that bad loss, he might be the one to make some waves. I hope so - he's got an exciting game.

    Racquets at the First Pro Match You Attended Live

    Hi Rohan - Thanks for reaching out. I actually have a Vila 2000 but I've looking for a Yonex Pioneer for ages. It's a shame I'm not still living in Camberwell, I'd have driven out to you directly. I'm hoping to visit Oz mid next year. Would you mind if I hit you up then before I come? I'd like...

    Anybody still using a "Classic" racket (1990s and earlier) as their main racket?

    I haven't played a lot in a while but the first stick out of my bag is usually my PT630. If I'm feeling strong and moving my feet well, I'll pull out my Völkl C10 as well because it feels so good. When I'm allowed back to Australia for a visit I'm shipping the rest of my collection to myself and...
