    Kyrgios made history? First point won by underhand serve!'s about the same as all junk balls - perfectly fine and drives some people crazy.

    AeroPro Drive Junior 26 stringing pattern

    Others have said that you can string 2 piece without enlarging any of the grommets, so will defer to their experience. I had to string a couple of jr racquets recently and while I'm sure they could've been done 2 piece, it wasn't obvious there were sufficient tie off holes. Just take a close...

    Oddest, Funniest, or Worst thing you've seen in a USTA match?

    So not at USTA match, but I was playing a USTA doubles practice match with my friend. As I pushed off to return a serve I felt like someone had shot me or clubbed me with a baseball bat on my left calf. After getting situated and trying to stand up, I inquired or my friend, "so what do you...

    Aargh! I owe the universe a dollar. The last cross is mis-weaved.

    One Cross String Smiling at Me

    I'll take a pic and post tonight...curious if it could be a misweave. I would be a whole $1 that it isn't, but I've been wrong,wrong, and badly wrong before. Just ask my wife!

    One Cross String Smiling at Me

    Hmmm...that sounds pretty plausible. It didn't happen exactly as you speculated, but I do recall that I had the second to the last cross (the one that is smiling at me) clamped for a while as I fiddled with something else. Wonder if that's the cause, if I should just re-tension?

    One Cross String Smiling at Me

    Apologies (and flame suit on) if this has been discussed before. I recently strung my racquet (Head IG Radical Pro) with a full set of SPPP. I'm pretty meticulous about keeping the cross string straight as I pull(crank), but for some odd reason, one of my cross strings came out and smiled at...

    Stringing Natural Gut Anxiety!

    Think I'll definitely try some pre-stretch and string 50/50. I learned the hard way on cinching the knot too tightly with a Ashaway Monogut. On the Monogut, pulled too hard too quickly, snapped the string, took out that little abrasive piece on the clamp, and hit myself on the forehead with...
