    Debate of the Year: Pro vs. Con Vibration Dampener on your Tennis Racquet - Pick a Side!

    Power pads > damper. They perform every function a dampener does but better, lengthen your mains (desirable trait), and make the racquet look better instead of cheapening the aesthetic. Why would I want anything on my stringbed, let alone a cheap piece of plastic?

    Who is least likely to win a(nother) Slam?

    I agree with that, best of 5 and best of 3 are two entirely different sports. Guys like Thiem and Zverev are a perfect example: they look like superstars in best of 3, yet both cramp up in a best of 5 slam final. Medvedev will definitely have the confidence and belief to tip the scales in...

    Who is least likely to win a(nother) Slam?

    Why do you think confidence plays a larger role?

    Slam final losses to non ATG players.

    For me it’s got to be Novak and Fed as 1a and 1b. They each dominated a decade: Fed was the best player of 2001-2010, Novak was the best of 2011-2020. I will say though, after Novak’s 2008 AO victory over what I consider to be very close to peak Fed and His 2015 win over Nadal at RG, he gets...

    Slam final losses to non ATG players.

    Love Sampras, but I can’t even begin to imagine the havoc Nadal’s forehand would have wrought on his backhand.

    Pros using 93 sq in and under in 2021?

    TGK 231.3, which is 16x19, since at least 2011 I believe.

    In the final analysis, Federer actually came closer to the CYGS (TWICE)

    Even as a huge Federer fan this is a giant over reach. Novak let the moment get to him and had less left in the tank than we all thought, but even two sets down he had better odds of beating Medvedev than Fed ever had of beating Rafa in ‘06 or ‘07 at RG. Heck, give me this version of Novak...

    Leylah Fernandez strings with very low tension

    No insider information oh her setup, but the sound when she hits the ball suggests high 40s - low 50s. Not quite the loud pop Fed or Novak get with their high 50s ALU crosses, but not the dead thump of a low 40s poly either. 52 as @uk_skippy said sounds about right.

    Any good shoes under $75 any more?

    Do shoes under $75 exist anymore?

    Did Nike or Adidas win 2021?

    Both lost quite a bit of ground IMO. Adidas is clearly a cut above when it comes to shoes. I’d take adidas apparel over Nike too. Adidas shorts become see through when you sweat apparently, but at least the outfits like comfy. Every Nike outfit I’ve seen this past year looks like it’s made...

    Tsitsipas - where does he go from here?

    Slice, transition game, and volleys. He has the game to be an all court player but doesn’t have the footwork to come to net.

    18x20 equivalent to the Wilson RF97 or Volkl C10 Pro (98in+, 350g static +, ~330g swingweight, headlight, 18x20)

    Vcore pro 18x20 and head pt 2.0 would be the two closest IMO

    Sir Andy Tweets after his 1st Round USO match

    Sad, Murray can’t even keep time correctly anymore. Maybe he should’ve just given the spot to a hungry challenger instead of stealing spots from more deserving players since he’s so concerned about fairness.

    Convince me Agassi is better than Murray

    Past his prime Agassi played at a higher level in the 2005 USO final vs peak Federer than peak Murray ever reached against past his prime Fed in any matchup lo.

    Common pre-poly string setups?

    Gut was extremely popular as well. Maybe more so on the pro tour, but also with higher level amateurs.
