    Which of these marquee matchups was the greatest?

    Borg and Mac takes the cake for me, during the glory days of tennis IMO the purest contrast for sure. Agassi and Sampras were always so highly hyped, that they rarely lived up to it. Kevin, I believe Clutch was speaking about Venus vs. Hingis.

    Kid's tennis: right time to start?

    At the younger ages, I believe it should be just for fun and exposure. This should prepare a kid for his tourny days when he turns around 10 years old. There is no 'right' time to start, if you got the talent, hard work, or both, you can make a name for yourself in tennis.

    Whos having the most fun on the court and who would rather be doing something else?

    Hewitt, Federer, and Coria seem like they are straight-up business. Blake was a headcase, until as of recently. Agassi still amazes me at how much fun he is still having on the court at 35. I agree that the youngins compared to the vets, show more enjoyment but less maturity.

    Serena 'Training' at McDonalds

    If I'm correct, doesn't Serena endorse McD's? Once in a while, I think not LOL Looking at her, I'd say that her *cravings* are pretty routine. I'm not a *world class athlete*, but I'm not exactly in love with McD's. I think Serena should be conscious of what she eats. Her presence at the top...

    Whos having the most fun on the court and who would rather be doing something else?

    Nadals top the vote on who still plays it like a *game* out there. Ferrero seems bored like out there without any excitement happening, and Safin wants to take a lead in a match and run with it, not really willing to dig deeper.

    Davis Cup: Worldwide SPOILERS!!

    Beck/Mertinak leading Nalbandian/Puerta 7-6 7-5 6-6 Ancic/Ljubicic def. Tursunov/Youzhny 6-2 4-6 7-6 3-6 6-4 Croats, especially Ljubicic, are playing like something else this year, aren't they? Are the Russians really affected without the presence of Safin?

    Will NADAl have a Chang like career?

    Nadal is just as fast, revolutionized topspin and attitude, and he's got the muscle. Throw in the lefty factor as well. I believe Nadal's game is also more varied. It is the playing style and coaching/management situation I'm concerned about with Nadal.

    When did Agassi start to wax his whole body?

    When he truely lost that 'wildman' image is my guess. I hear that he rededicated himself to his tennis around 30, so that should give you some idea.

    You're #1 .. Are you Arrogant or Demure ?

    I think Federer is more 'confident' than Steffi was, but he definitely is not going overboard, and we may call him arrogant according to the American culture, but I don't believe so. Both players have that confidence as another weapon IMO, and it is no where close to that of Andrea Jaeger or...

    Why not actually release the top pros' custom sticks to the public?

    Ummm... I believe TW and probably some local stores can do that for you... You may just be getting your start in tennis, but I'm under the impression that there are many players on these boards that have customized frames in some way, whether they increase the size of the grip by putting on...

    Update on my game

    Update: The most suitable serving stance that I have found now is the pinpoint stance, contradicting my above post. I just found it to give me the most variety and comfort, more so then the other stances. The full-western fh grip is also proving to be worthwhile. I find myself much more...

    What is Richard Gasquet had won 10 Titles this year . . .

    I don't think anyone acknowledged this post. I agree with it completely, and it pretty much sums it up perfectly for me. Like Federer in his early days, Gasquet is still a headcase. Federer took a while to get his all-court game together, but once he did, utter domination. If Gasquet were to...

    Sarapova in Beijing **Spoiler**

    I would think the tour would have less injuries with all the weight training done nowadays. You got top-ranked players pulling out here and there. Kirilenko always had the potential, and she lived up to it against Sharapova. If I'm under the right impression, Kirilenko would have pulled that...
