    Do you wear Tennis Attire at the Courts?

    I buy heaps of my tennis stuff at factory outlets. They don’t stock them too often where I’m at so when they do I Tend to buy all I need at one go. So I’m often kitted out with a particular brand. Key tennis articles of clothing are shorts and shoes. The rest are non tennis specific polyester...

    Noels chances for taking over the slam count

    Nadal still has two more French opens in him minimum. The next one is in May which is very soon (assuming no cancellations). That’ll take him to 22 maybe more if he is lucky. Djoker got to win 5 to match nadal. Going to be tough. The other players especially Thiem will snatch a few.

    ATP player with coolest name?

    Radek Stepanek aka THE WORM ... is definitely the coolest name. So cool that a bevy of babes couldn't wait to hook up with him. If he was half as talented a player on the court as he was off of it, he would have multiple grand slams and with cool nicknames such as... Rad Attek.. Panek...

    At what temp do you switch string setups?

    In summer I’m usually on Poly mains and multi crosses. Once weather starts to dip below 65 I’ll swap it around to multi mains and poly crosses.

    finally.. no heel slippage. i tried many. the Nike Air Zoom Vapor Cage 4 won

    I ordered a pair yesterday on discount. Went for my regular size rather than size down as I realised I’m also in a regular size for the lunar ballistics which supposedly fit longer. Hopefully no dramas.

    Nike 2020 General Thread

    Any advice in sizing for the vapor cage 4? I’m typically a size 10.5 US. Should I size down to 10 or 9.5 US? Ordering online so need some tips before I order it. I’ve got normal width feet (maybe very slightly narrow).

    Favourite tracksuit for autumn/winter play?

    Layer up and peel off as you heat up... that’s the key. I usually run a merino wool base layer (always long sleeved) under a short sleeved dri fit/polyester shirt. If it’s particularly chilly I’ll use a long sleeved shirt with a thicker fabric. Keeps me warm enough down to about 10deg / 50 f...

    Advice for entry level mountain bikes

    Not sure if OP has gotten their bike yet but best option would be to stick with a hard tail mountain bike rather than dual suspension at the sub $1000 price point. Not even sure if anyone does dual suspension under $1000. Look at the giant talon bikes. Very good value for money. If you’re...

    Rafa fans: slow down boys

    It’s just his hair. If he shaves it off he’ll be looking like a young Jason statham,

    Rafa fans: slow down boys

    Forget about Rogies record of 20. At this rate Rafa is on course to match Margaret Court!!! Not beyond him to squeeze out three more French opens and with a bit of luck I wouldn’t bet against him taking home a couple extra at the us open or Oz open in the next three years.

    Why Djokovic will never get the love from the crowd unlike Fedal?

    I was at the match. Didn’t hear any boos. The crowd was pro Nadal for sure only because of underdog status and the fact they wanted to see more tennis. But Djokovic also had very strong support from the local Aussie Serbs. Very rowdy and vocal bunch. More than made up for the discrepancy in...

    Prime Sampras Vs Prime Federer

    Depends on the ball. If they’re using those older smaller sized balls then pistol Pete probably.
