    Lefties Serving in the Sun

    What happened to US men's tennis?

    Isner, Querry and Opaleka are horrible movers and they are the best America has to offer. And what I see & know about US player development is a lack of US male tennis players having any impact on the tour.

    Do you keep your racquets and bags 'on brand'

    Send 'Em Back to the '80s!

    I am not suggesting that players using a wooden tennis racquet could not win. What I am saying as early as the 70s there were choice other than the standard wood frame. So if OP is suggesting an even playing field as it concern racquets, you have to go back to the Sixties.
