    Nice interview, thanks for sharing. He's so right about fitness and keep exercising and all that stuff. I wish I had more time to do it on a daily basis though…

    Would Sampras and the 90's players have actually made it as a pro in this era

    Yes, I'm one of those who think that the game has become much more boring than ever. :cool: Most players from the 90s would make it today simply because they would would have evolved along with the game. And Sampras would kick the ass of most of the field today, just like he did 20 years ago.

    Babolat Pure Aero 2019, no arm pain?

    Never played with such a racket but I know that the previous iterations of the Pure Aero had a 70 RA or so. Latest PA generation has a RA of 66 (checked on a professional Babolat RDC), so this could explain that.

    Becker world champion racket

    I have a question though. Are these genuine rackets made for Boris Becker and sold on the general market for a specific occasion (what I seem to recall), I mean with real BB specs (weight, balance etc.) ? Or are they just the closest thing to Boris' actual rackets that you can find? The other...

    What's so good about them? I've been using Asics shoes since 1999 and need to replace my old Resolution, so I'm looking for any particular wise advice :cool:. Thanks.

    How do you convince yourself to play with an extremely valuable racquet?

    Funnily, I've just answered in another thread that if I owned one of Boris Becker's frames -- one of my idols when I was a kid -- I just couldn't use it but keep it as new. So, how do I convince myself to play with such a tool? The truth is, I don't. Sorry for not bringing any valuable...

    My god, that is such a beauty ! :eek: I've been watching them on *** bay for years but too expensive for me. How much I'd like to own one, I couldn't tell 8-B. Surely I wouldn't use it (stupid, I know). Congrats.

    Mats Wilander vs Stefan Edberg: Greatest Career?

    You're talking about my childhood hero !! :-D No worries of course ;)

    Mats Wilander vs Stefan Edberg: Greatest Career?

    Actually it will. Mats himself said in several interviews that he couldn't adapt to this faster grass, so I guess he knows more than anybody else what he's talking of ;). This, plus the fact that he lost several times against true grass specialists, as underlined previously in this very topic...

    Fischet vacuum m.c.t ?

    Never saw this one before. Nice albeit grayish… Made in Australia, looks like a bigger Kafel Pro N1. I wonder how it plays.

    Did Wilander do anything better than Borg?

    Hard to say, recurring debate. As many other players from the 80s field, Mats would have adapted. Mats in 1995 hit harder and was probably physically stronger than the younger Wilander in 1982-83, but he was also not as tough mentally (as said before) and probably less resistant too.

    Here’s part 2, as enjoyable as part one. These 4 should do more like these! Enjoy.

    Did Wilander do anything better than Borg?

    I think it was in 1989 for Borg... as for Mats, they said he was tested positive during the French Open 1995. I was still a kid back then and Mats was almost a God to me: posters, photos everywhere, rackets, apparel, shoes, magazines, videotapes, everything that I could collect... I remember...
