    Yonex R-23: tension reduction on crosses

    What is the recommended tension for mains vs crosses? Can't remember if crosses are supposed to be 5% or 10% less. Is this still recommended?

    Dunlop Black Max Plus / Matchmate Graphite

    I remember trying a Matchmate back in college, pretty decent demo from memory. I just picked up a brand new Dunlop for $13 plus shipping. Looking forward to the hit. Thanks for the info. and history. Such a trove of knowledge on these boards!

    Dunlop Black Max Plus / Matchmate Graphite

    Can anyone confirm if these 2 frames are from the same molds? Also looking for stringing instructions on the Dunlop, pretty sure it is 16 mains, not sure of crosses and skip holes, etc.

    Felix Auger Aliassime

    I saw his qualifying match against Lorenzi and TBH wasn't overly impressed. I didn't see any great weapons and he made some typical unforced errors that the top players don't. He was definitely poised and composed though. Great to see him make a run. Hope he makes the Final.

    Federer thinks how they set up the court in Hard Rock is odd.

    The 200 level seats on the "non-Club" side feel steep like the old Louis Armstrong stadium - Federer is right. Waste of time to be in the Stadium if you don't have an extremely low level seat.

    New Miami Open Venue vs Old

    I was at the tournament on Wednesday. IMO the new site has nothing on Key Biscayne. The jimmy rigging they did to create the Stadium court is just that. A 200 level seat shares the feel of looking down from the top row of the old Louis Armstrong stadium in NY. Unless you have a premium low...

    Diadem Elevate Tour - quick Review

    Not rectangular like Head Prestige. Maybe closer to Dunlop or Babolat. I've got 2 overgrips so some of the bevel sharpness is lost.

    Diadem Elevate Tour - quick Review

    Being a fan of their strings, I had previously demoed the Diadem Elevate and had pretty high expectations. While not disappointed, (for me) the Elevate had a bit too much flex, and while the power level and plow through were fine for a 305g unstrung frame, it wasn't exactly where I'd want it...

    By that logic, Hewitt (5-4), Roddick (2-1), Safin (5-4), Bruguera (3-2), Stich (5-4), Kracijek (6-4) or even Wayne Ferreira (6-7) for that matter would have the same comparable "success" as Sampras.

    H2Hs explained

    McEnroe vs Borg was 7-7 HTH yet they never competed on clay where Borg, with 6 French Opens to McEnroe's 0, would have been heavily favored. If those 14 are all on clay, it's a different story, but if Borg had a 14-0 HTH against McEnroe, it wouldn't tell an accurate story. Ditto with playing...
