    ESPN 3 Cincy Open, No Commentary?

    Really? It's good news. I'd better watch ESPN3 instead of bearing with the noises from horrible commentators.

    How does Mardy Fish serve and volley in today's game?

    The key is to keep the returner off-balance. Fish has good enough serve and good enough volley to s&v successfully, as long as his serve is not predictable.

    2011 Cincinnati R2: Federer vs. Del Potro

    About tonight's match, IMHO, it seems that Del Po was not up to it.

    Not sure if he recovered from the banana injury.

    demo credits towards a new racquet

    Even though I think OP went too far, I don't think it is unreasonable to ask for discount after demo, since one of the competitors of TW actually offer 10 percent off from the purchase of a racquet after demoing from them. And they also charge just the 'shipping cost' for demo.

    Stroke improvement earned at wall not translating.

    With a wall, you cannot see the actual result of your strokes: trajectory, spin, speed, whether they are actually in or out, etc. In a sense, it is possible that the shots that you thought you were making were not there even during the wall practice. IMHO, wall practice is not ideal for the...

    I love the most random frame - Pro Kennex Kinetic Pro 7g

    Thanks for your offer of recommendation in strings and tension. If I decide to buy one, I'll ask you. Yeah, it puzzles me, too. I thought the extra leverage should help, but my shots (especially fh) with 7G don’t seem to have the usual weight and spin. I feel I’d be better off by slowing down...

    I love the most random frame - Pro Kennex Kinetic Pro 7g

    I don’t know what the string is. There is nothing written on the string, but string itself does not seem worn out too much. Well, it's possible, but I usually don’t have a problem with a racquet with 66 or less in stiffness rating (e.g., Prestige Pro, Pure storm tour, etc.) And PS 6.0 85 I was...

    Gamma 340 vs Donnay vs Six.One

    I wish 340 tour had a more open string pattern.

    I love the most random frame - Pro Kennex Kinetic Pro 7g

    I've been demoing this racquet. I'll stick with it a few more days, but it's been disappointing so far. Maybe, it is due to the extra length, but I am not sure if it is the case. The general feeling of hitting with this racquet is that it does not seem to bite the ball. I cannot figure out...

    forehand video: proper setup leading to bad contact point - why?

    Um... maybe only if you mean by the term as pushing off the right foot. Otherwise, it's more or less refers to a footwork to deal with a wide ball with an open stance as well as to facilitate the recovery. But terminological difference aside, would you expand on your claim? You would not mean...

    forehand video: proper setup leading to bad contact point - why?

    As you may know, he doesn't have to use it all the time. Maybe, it would help if you tell us why you think he should have used it in a situation such and such, etc.

    Kirschbaum Pro Line II

    I bought this string mainly because of the deal tw offers. However, I was disappointed. Its performance is rather dull. Of course, after a while, it loses tension, it might feel soft. But still dull, overall. I am not sure I would use this as a cross with natural gut main. I'd probably have to...

    48÷2(9+3) = ??

    This is the convention I am used to. As long as people can see that there is another convention they are not used to, it's hard to see what the fuss is about. It has nothing to do with even the 'real' order of operation, which many people seems to think what is at stake but a way to save...
