    Wilson Clash string setup and at what tension

    Yep, went with RPM at 50lbs. Like it a little better than TB Soft. A little less power and a more controlled response. The Solinco is great for spin though, and really comfortable if that’s what you’re after.

    RPM Blast 17: how is it on the arm?

    I’m at 50 with the 1.25 gauge and that feels about right. I’m liking the RPM in the Clash but found it harsh in other frames. I’ve tried ALU Rough, TB Soft also and so far RPM is my pick.

    I use it in a Clash 100 at 50lbs No issues with comfort so far

    How to play out of a slump

    Couldn’t agree more. Since my game went to pot I’ve been working on my kick serve as a dependable second serve and also shot selection using the directionals strategy. Starting to have fun again and, dare I say it, actually improve a bit?

    How to play out of a slump

    I’m with you on the synthetic grass courts, I can’t stand them. Too fast and too easy to slip/get injured on. Also, those Treton balls are like rocks!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Do you keep your racquets and bags 'on brand'

    At the moment, I have Wilson Blades and Clash 100's with a black Wilson Tour 6 pack bag. In the past I've used several brands of racquets and bags together and not cared too much about it...

    How to play out of a slump

    Played again last night against a "pushover" as suggested here. Normally beat this player very easily and use the opportunity to work on plays or specific shots but last night dropped a set to him for the first time in ages. I'm overthinking everything. My forehand which is my only real weapon...

    Any recommend the "bounce/hit" strategy for staying focused on the ball? Sent from my POT-LX1 using Tapatalk

    How to play out of a slump

    As it says on the title I'm going through a slump at the moment. Serve and forehand out the window, no belief or confidence in my strokes. Losing to guys I've beaten easily in the past. Double faulting and hitting unforced errors at an unbelievable rate. Starting to not enjoy my Tennis to be...

    What's your biggest weakness?

    Mine is focus. When I'm in the zone I am a completely different player. When I'm not I have zero confidence in my strokes and my footwork and general game go out the window. I go through patches of both, right now I'm definitely not in the zone and it's becoming very frustrating Sent from my...
