    college life in Oxford & Starkville for athletes

    Oxford is a far better college town, but both are good tennis programs. This may be for another thread but ...what is not always understood by rising freshman is (as a D1 player) your activities on and off court are basically with the tennis team. You will do track in the AM, go to school, then...

    Stability of Head Prestige Pro but with more power and lower SW

    The Graphene XT PPro seems to fit that bill, modern and reasonably powerful (relative) although it can swing heavy versus some versions for some folks. Did you not like that version? Interested in replies to this thread.

    Who are candidates for the Louisville position?

    No idea who gets the job but to do this in mid-August is weird. If this is their decision it should have been made a while ago since the kids are back now. Louisville is a good job and they have decent facilities but its a long way up in the ACC. In addition to chasing UVa-UNC-Wake, Clemson has...

    Head Prestige Tour 300 midplus 660

    Fantastic racket, very stable and solid. I don't think it was one-dimensional because it just did everything well and had great feel. The issue was when they moved to the suspension grips the grip kinda broke down over time and they developed a squeak. There was no need for the suspension grip...

    Has Spin Obsession Caused Tennis to Regress???

    Good thread. Also worth noting in addition to string technology - or maybe because of it- that at all the academies and tennis symposiums over the past several years the magic word was “shape”. They’re quite focused on putting shape on the ball. Producing a lot of spinny rallying and such but to...

    2018 Tecnifibre T-Fight XTC Rackets

    I find the new TF XTC 305 and XTC 315 to be much improved. These are the only 2 that I have personally hit with. More stable, better power overall, improved feel. My son plays with XTC 320 and reports the same.

    Why do Tec racquets FEEL like crap?

    Feel is subjective, but I love the feel of TF sticks. I particularly love the feel of the new XTC 305. Its a monumental improvement over the previous DC and Dynacore models which I thought felt good, but were underweight and hit a thin ball. Even with lead I could not get to a happy place with...

    Alabama men's tennis

    He’s proven he’s the man to take them forward. SEC is tough he’s done a good job recently. I admit he took a while to do it but people here don’t know all the details.
