    Tennis channel plus

    I thought I'd be able to watch the big tournaments. They were showing some Australian Open matches during the first week, but stopped during the second week. No Indian Wells. No Miami. The collection of classic matches hasn't changed since I got it in December. The on demand matches are hit...

    Tennis channel plus

    I don't have cable/satellite, so I thought it would be a good idea to get TC Plus to finally be able to catch a lot of tennis. Biggest waste of money ever. If you guys are debating whether or not to get it...DON'T.

    Can we fix Sorana Cirstea's tennis ?

    Shouldn't you already know the answer to that question?

    ATTN: Silent Partner ball machine owners

    I kind of assumed that was the case, but didn't know if they actually discounted them even more off of their everyday "sale" price. I'd be willing to even wait until the holiday season rolls around if I could save another $100 or so, but if the current price is as good as it's going to get then...

    ATTN: Silent Partner ball machine owners

    I've had my eyes on the Silent Partner LITE for a few years now and think I'm finally going to make the investment in one soon. I've owned a ball machine before (Tennis Tutor Jr.), so I know all the positives and negatives in owning a ball machine. My question is this: Is there an ideal time...

    how the wilson prostaff 85 stars´n stripes plays in relation to ps85??

    I used to have a few of them back in the day. As a PS 6.0 85 user at the time I was excited about them...then I hit the court with them. Duds. I don't think they did anything as well, or better, than the originals. Sold them not long after.

    Nadal vs Borg vs Sampras at this point

    1- Nadal 2- Sampras 3- Borg It kills me to admit this, but as a HUGE Sampras fan I have to say what Nadal has been able to do has surpassed Pete's accomplishments. Even though he is 1 slam shy of Sampras, winning all 4 slams, an olympic gold and masters series record trump Sampras' 14 slams...

    Spin, Thin, and Power at 11 ounces?

    One the first racquets that came to mind after reading the OP's specs was the Prince O3 Original White. Granted, the beam tapers ever so slightly beyond the OP's 23mm max request, but not by much. Not to...

    Same Racquet, Same weight, Same Balance. But....

    Even if two racquets have the same weight and balance they can still have noticeably different swingweights. It sounds like the slightly lighter one with the heavier swingweight is more polarized in it's weight distribution.

    Slazenger & Dunlop: same racquets?

    You won't know until you hit with it. If you don't like it then sell it.

    Isner Houston Rocket serve record

    "Ivo Karlovic owns the fastest recorded serve at 156 mph" I thought some Aussie hit one in the low 160's a few years ago....

    For those who didn't believe me...

    Even Serena admitted the dance was "inappropriate" when she was asked what the name of her post match dance was called. “Actually, there is a name. But I don’t know if I — it’s inappropriate,” she dodged. “It’s just a dance we do in California.” Here's the article in case you want a...

    Roddick is a disgrace

    Not fair to throw Chang into that category IMO. After winning the French in '89 he made it to the finals of another French as well as the Aussie and US Opens.
