    The Brotherhood of the Traveling Radical

    How does one follow the flight of the bumblebee?

    ^ That seems to be the way to go considering the release season coming up. This makes sense when dealing with the humidity levels in Florida. Let the sun cook all the water out the air, so you can keep your water in. Hmmmm.... I'm fortunate to play once a month at this point. Stocked up on...

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    I currently live in a very temperate and mild, 4-season climate. However, I was born in, and lived on, a very hot, very humid island and your body does adjust. You learn what time of day is good for outdoor activities, like early morning, early afternoon or evening, 3-5pm is when it gets...

    ^ On t.v., you could hear the crowd screaming 'out' and 'double' in the middle of Djoko's second serve during the 3rd and 4th sets, really irritated me as a fan of both players and the game. Djokovic feeds off of the crowd not rooting for him, and when the temperatures dropped after the rain, it...

    Gadsby, love the pics of Djoko and the Honey Deuce! Couldn't make it up there this year, was planning to hit the semis and final but alas, could not make it work. When I heard that they ran out of alcohol and food during the rain delay, kind of glad I didn't go. ;-) Like you, I much prefer the...

    Shame on ATP for not banning Kyrgios

    ahhh... Sanctimonious comments and Self-Righteous retribution will never cease to validate the need for borders and religion.

    Wilson releasing Pro Staff 97S for Dimitrov (specs. included)

    Super stoked for this frame! Hopefully Wilson will have a couple for sale at flushing meadows as they did with the RF97 last year

    It was nice seeing a deep field this year in my hometown tourney, the Citi Open. Also nice to see Bernakis go deep in a 500'r. I remember watching him lose an early round, closely fought, 3 setter against Kamke 2 years ago. He quietly walked off the grandstand, unattended and wept on a bench...

    Nice review El.. I smell demo sessions in the fall for all. Powa, the extremePro is probably the easiest racquet I've ever played with, super comfy too, nice touch (unlike most frames in its class), good choice. You just kind of block out everything with that thing and play and it's not as...

    Any new racquets coming out late 2015-2016

    Thank you kind sir! Spec's don't look half bad, easily built up, the beam though is right on spec for me. Really, really, really looking forward to this one.

    That Wilson 97 Spin,18x17, ala' Dimitrov looks interesting! If it approaches 12oz strung, should be a real gem!

    ^Tell me about it. Had a 3-5 record last season, same reasons as what you describe. Not aggressive enough when I should be and not knowing which shots to play high percentage. Good news is we're in good company.

    Finally got to play last night after a long, unintended break from the courts. Super sold on low-tension polys in the ezone- xi98 (or any other frame). For players who have an innate ability to add touch on the ball and have those 'feely' hands at net, don't be afraid of stringing your frame at...
