    Tecnifibre ICE CODE finally in reels on TW!!!

    One of my fav strings, FINALLY being carried by TW in reel form. Its like a softer version of a Razor Code, at least it feels that way to mee, plenty of pop, plenty of spin, I really feel the ball sink on the stringbed. I really like the 17G (1.25mm) gauge, although, for chronic breakers...

    Dumb question #2: when you win a tiebreak, did you win 7 games???

    For a round robin tournament, where sets won-lost come into play, and games won-lost, in the event of ties, whats the deal with tiebreaks? Does the 7/6 mean you won 7 games and lost 6?

    Silly question (someone made me doubt): String reels in carryone ok for Intl flights?

    Last time I brought reels in carryons were in June, I had my doubts about that, but now remembered: I checked a duffel bag as a carryon, and had like three reels in it, and it was only at the gate front desk that they gave me the option to check it in as stored luggage. But there was no issue...

    Where can you stand in doubles???????

    Thanks! Was actually bamboozled yesterday, playing a practice doubles. Was told by one of our opponents that it was illegal to stand in the same half before the serve was hit (either inside the box or the same half of the court in general!).

    How should I handle this cheating?

    Just.... mention it? "Sorry, whenever you go after the ball and toss it to me, Im falling out of my rhythm, so please dont toss it to me or go after it between my 1st and 2nd serve" If they do it again after that, claim a 1st serve.

    Where can you stand in doubles???????

    I've been playing tennis for 24 yrs, and I have NO IDEA about this ruling, mostly bc I'm a singles player, have very little doubles competition, and Im about to play a doubles tournament. Yes, I'm aware of the "I" formation, but again, that is not as extreme as what I'm proposing. When you do...

    Where can you stand in doubles???????

    The specific question: Can players stand wherever they want during doubles? For example, if I'm serving on the deuce side, can my partner stand on the deuce side as well? I attempted to do this yesterday: me serving deuce side, my partner at net on the deuce side as well, so I would serve and...
