    FS: 2 x Yonex Vcore 95

    sent you an email mate

    Comfort, how important is it to you ?

    Most important. Vcore 95... Its comfortable, its a Yonex, has a 95sq head, comes in the best-of-both-worlds string pattern of 16x20. What else can a ohbh attacking player ask for? I also gut hybrid it on low tension.

    Footwork Question

    Small steps to set up are key, always if possible run around to hit a forehand and put your body on the ball for that winner exaggerating the forward motion.

    Playing style as you age and get busy

    Oh mate, just 40? Get back in shape and grind those kids off the court. Over here theres even some 50 year old clay court grinders that can cause plenty trouble.

    What % of your tennis budget is spent on lessons.

    Monthly club fee at 65 and playing on other courts at 10ish per hour, balls, 2 pairs of shoes yearly, racket changes, natural gut hybrid (at 25 euros for tonic+ which lasts me a month when it isn't too damp), stringing at 8 per job, tennis tv at 100 per year. I also go to ATP tournaments, this...

    Price of 1h tennis lesson in your part of the world?

    20 to 35 per hour for regular coaches in Spain. Don't know about the posh clubs though, like the one where the Barcelona ATP500 is hosted. I suspect that depending on who coaches you it can go up to 60ish.

    VCORE PRO HD vs VCORE 95

    I would say get rid of the leather grip for something lighter that will make the racket more head heavy as it already is very head light stock. That'll sort you for power. Oh and a gut/poly hybrid.

    Vid of two guys at a rec tournament, guess their level

    We can all learn a thing or two from the pusher. I meant more wall mode djokovic like, not attacking balls, just placing them and using margins. Feds game is too complicated to model yourself on.

    You'll get there and could do sooner if you change your mindset. Train not to hit winners but not to miss a shot. Become a pusher for a while, once you nailed that to the point where you are confident that not even a pusher can beat you at pushing, then you start bringing attacking shots into...

    Those guys look pretty average, could be hard work on an off day, but still very beatable. To echo @34n its just a matter of getting used to playing against these guys, then you'll be beating them even on off days, 2 years of leagues and tournaments is spot on. You got to get your match...

    Heres some for you from today. 85% humidity, the ball was flying out there after 2 hours of grinding.
