    Could you beat either one of these 70 yr olds? (Full match highlights)

    FYI for most of the posters here: check out Brent's YouTube channel in depth. He has an excellent slice backhand that he can hit with great variety. This shot of his is a scalpel. Deep, short, drive, floater and dropper all off the same backswing. Sheer pace is not the only way to draw our...

    If serve is done without tilting

    Regarding the spin types: I think we should not get hung up on his terms since he is not a native English speaker. He is just trying to demonstrate the different possible spin axes using internal rotation/pronation. I think Byun is his word for the sound of the racket hitting the ball a rapid...

    adidas Barricade Classic Wide (4E) Are these finally a wide shoe from Adidas

    I just played in these for the second time yesterday. I have a VERY wide and thick foot that is hard to fit in most tennis shoes. These were snug but seem to be breaking in nicely.

    Shoulder Tendinitis, what can I do for recovery?

    I definitely agree with Vin. I had shoulder problems diagnosed as tendonitis for about 3 years. I went through physical therapy and it just came back when I started playing again. I thought it had to be caused by a flaw in my serve. Then I found the Trigger Point book in Vin's post. The problems...

    Hurting in shoulder and numb finger tips - Help!

    I have had shoulder problems off and on for 3+ years and I was recently diagnosed with a bulging cervical disc. While dealing with my disc problem I learned about trigger point massage therapy and it REALLY helped my shoulder pain. I think you should see a doctor, but you should also look into a...
