    "Extending the Match"

    yea i agree most rec players go for more when losing, which is a bit counter productive. i don't agree extending a match will necessarily help you, given there are many variables at play... for me if standard game does not work, plan b is using a lot more variety... slices, high topspin, etc...

    Double Hander Fundamentals?

    as andre says around 3:30 in the video... hit the 2hbh from more neutral stance than open when possible. the front foot facing forward (or 45 degree) is a big tip

    most advanced players will not like the 310 stock. most intermediate and beginners probably not looking at this frame. that said the 97 310g with just a little weight at 3&9. much better. just a gram made a big difference. i still like my vcore98. switching between the two constantly right now

    Did Murray over achieve in his career?

    he worked his ass off... he didn't seem as naturally gifted as much as some of his peers... with the pressure of a Brit/Scot to win Wimbledon, he endured and then did it. but no one was really surprised he did... then fought back from major surgery and rehab to play pro again, knowing he won't...

    Did Federer underachieve in his career?

    if Fed found his mojo earlier he could have won more. Fed turned pro in 1998 and won his first slam in 2003. i always thought the death of his coach, Peter Carter, in 2002 was the catalyst that started the Fed show.
