    Your opinion on PHT17

    I hated the PHT for being more expensive and less durable than standard PH.

    Why do people say the Prestige (MP) is a difficult racquet to play with?

    IMHO, people who can't generate enough power with their swings should not be considering playing with a Prestige. Basically low power and lots of control is all what Prestige series is about. Tinkering with low string tension or awkward string setups will just bring you further away from the...

    A Nadal look-alike Does the left guy at 00:14 remind you of someone? The band is called the Monkees. No pun intended.

    Why did Richard Gasquet change his forehand? Grip, and the take back?

    Those must be the ugliest strokes ever, I couldn't even watch the whole video. Of course, his backhand is beautiful but the rest really looks bad.

    How many guitar players we got here?

    That double-cutaway Les Paul looks like a PRS on that picture! I play also, I'm an intermediate player.

    Sticky request: Tennis video clips and matches

    It's really not a bad idea since anyone can open those files, you have to download less files and just decompress them. It's realy efficient. You have RAR expanders for Mac - just google it.

    Does anyone hit a topspin 2 hander like RAFA?

    I'm quite sure he hits a topspin backhand, there can't be as much spin as with his forehand, but that's definitely a topspin backhand. If you tried to play with that kind of grip Nadal uses for his backhand, you would notice how natural that spin comes.

    Going Solo. The Morrissey 2009 US Open Experience.

    I'm quite sure that I saw Maria Kirilenko on of the pictures. And then I wonder - if you could take that pic, you probably could have taken another two or three or maybe fifty? So where are those pictures? I know I couldn't resist and I would have just followed her around courts.

    who hits with the most top spin

    Well that would probably be one of the pros you've never heard of, hitting with too much top spin won't get you anywhere. I wouldn't look in the top 20 or even top 50 for that matter.

    Who has the ugliest, but effective strokes?

    For me, Gasquet's and Murray's forehands are really painful to watch. Ljubicic's forehand (and his forehand setup) really makes me turn off the TV.

    federer forehand

    It doesn't have to be more efficient, it's dictated by his grip. The more western you go, the more you have to bend your arm, it's natural. If you look at any video of Federer's forehand, you can see how he starts with his elbow high, than he does that little whipping motion in which he...

    The generation between Sampras's and Federer's: WORST EVER?

    Wimledon's defending champions in that period didn't have to play any tournament matches until the final.
