    Is Hingis the most skillful doubles player ever?

    Agree and you have to consider J.McEnroe and probably safe to claim Hingis/Mac as greatest MD team

    Biking anyone?

Tours like the http://www.raceacrossamerica.org/ are really impressive accomplishments. Hope you and your son get to do that ride, would be great...

    Biking anyone?

    I have been riding most every day and enjoying the much more open roads. Missing my club and gym since closed but more cardio should help my viral resistance.

    A YAMAHA YFG 50 Fiberglass Racquet

    Given you have a NOS long lost love, I string up one with some really nice string, maybe nat gut, and enjoy lots a vintage hitting memories. The other can be a wall trophy that teases you every day.

    A YAMAHA YFG 50 Fiberglass Racquet

    Understand the Ceramic 90 was a big advance in control compared to the YFG 20 which was 20% larger head then YFG30. The ceramic 90 also had a unique "Add Balance System" which was a black plastic slider that fit on the both sides of the racket. I have nice examples of all of these rackets.
