    The eye test: who impressed you the most among those you watched?

    I disagree. I saw Kournikova practicing multiple times, including with her mom who was wearing stilletto heels and daisy dukes with a crop top. She definitely had skills. Her mom stood at the net and held the racquet in this way that didn’t inspire confidence in me but surprised me in that...

    Which great player never recovered from the "yips"

    Gabriela Sabatini had the yips on her serve pretty bad, really preventing her from the predicted rivalry she was thought to have had with Steffi. https://www.nytimes.com/1994/09/07/sports/us-open-94-she-s-long-on-talent-short-on-the-serve.html

    Prince RipStick 300 - coming soon!

    I think Tyler from Prince discussed the (multiple?) requests they’ve heard about reissuing the Mono/Ripstick frame in the Prince Official thread. It’s post #12 : “... The Mono.....where should I start..... In it’s time it was truly a leap forward in racquet design and was the stepping stone...

    Prince RipStick 300 - coming soon!

    Re: Chanda Rubin

    Yeah I don't think she has impetigo (as that is a skin condition typically affecting babies and children: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/impetigo/symptoms-causes/syc-20352352). You probably meant to say vitiligo...

    Gamma big bubba?

    It was in the early 1990s. I would estimate around 93-94. It was sponsored by (or at least advertisements featured him) Fred Stolle.

    Prince Official - Racquets

    Thanks for taking the time to explain. Your statement made me remember how I loved the Prince DNA helix string. Lightning feels somewhat close. But yes looking forward to interesting iterations of your frames now and into the future. Preferably with low RA ;)

    Prince Official - Racquets

    I used to play with the Michael Chang Graphite longbody (without the titanium). It really helped my game in high school, in particular my serve. I remember trying out the triple threat graphite and felt it was very interesting. Easy to crush the ball comfortably. It also is the first...
