    KPS88 Release in AUS?

    A Wilson employee told me June/July. He wasn't exactly a bigshot so I don't know how credible he is.

    New Prince Speedport Graphites!

    I'd really prefer it if the pj was more black than green.

    Two overgrips instead of replacement grip

    I used to use a 4 3/8 grip size but one day bought a racket with 4 1/2 because it was only one I could find. I took off the replacement grip and put on two overgrips instead to get it to the usual size I'm used to. After a while, I found I preferred the feel of it.

    Planning to design own clothes, what blank clothes should I buy?

    There are laundry markers which are designed for clothes. Why not try cafepress or something.

    I hate the XBOX 360 ill never buy microsoft game systems.

    I used to use it maybe 2-3 hours a week, but mine has gotten the ring of death twice now. I doubt I'll bother with microsoft anymore.

    Sampras Comeback!!!!

    I actually prefer watching him play more on the Seniors with McEnroe and the other former greats rather than with the current nobodies. I do agree it would be nice to watch Pete on the grass again, though.

    federer's forhand? or nadal's?

    Despite all the shanks, Fed's is still the forehand I'd rather have.

    Farewell, Roger Federer?

    ^ Agreed here. Federer's has more than a mental block against Nadal, who's clearly an improved player to last year. In my eyes, Nadal is now #1, and it's more due to him taking it rather than Federer declining to #2.

    Federer vs. Djokovic semifinal poll

    Nice. I applaud you. For the record, I would've voted a default.

    Your Racquet Disappointments?

    Pure Storm Tour for me as well. Considering I liked the original Pure Storm and Pure Control. I guess I'm just over the Babolat thing. I really dislike their Woofer tech now. Yonex RDX500 - It was the 2nd Yonex I'd tried. I'd used the SRD Tour for a long time and nothing they've had since then...

    K90 vs microgel prestige mid

    Yeah, I find my MG Prestige Mid is really easy to swing, with plenty of control. I also agree the K90 is more solid and stable, and the open string pattern generates spin more easily. K90 plays well if you prep early and use its weight effectively.

    To those who enjoyed hitting with the KBlade Tour

    I find it's got a fair bit of spin. Mine's fairly leaded up @ 362g and I strung with a cyberflash in the crosses and klip excel in the mains. I find this setup of lead and strings gives me plenty of power and spin, especially with serves. Have you tried a Prestige MP? I find the Head frames...

    Federer's problem...and his doom

    Federer (and everyone else's) problem when it comes to RG is that Nadal is a beast on clay. Nobody can win 3 out 5 sets against him when he's playing like that. Especially with the conditions this year, humid conditions and a heavy ball, which makes it easy (relatively) for Nadal to whip it all...
