Yeah, there's many ways to measure and define flexibility. I do love people conflating RA with feel here as if the former is equivalent to the latter. RA is just ONE way to make the concept of stiffness measurable. Wilson's SI is a different rating. Does it matter in the end? At most in guiding...
I'd emphasize movement first. Weapons are a result of proper movement. The serve should be a given, seeing as it's the only shot in the game you completely control, but there's no good forehand or backhand in play without good footwork.
@vanioMan I was a skeptic, but it almost seems like your feeling was prophetic!
Unless Rafa somehow loses confidence with Nole on the other side, I find it hard to see how Rafa in this form will be beaten. This may be the best I’ve seen him play on hard.
Grey, black, and red combined does work. That's if you do something with it rather than only have mono-colored sections. Looks rather cheap from the pictures at least - in the end what matters is how it plays though.
The Adidas line is pretty dope. Thiem looks cool, I'd just prefer a darker shade of blue for the shorts (or white) - and ditch that rosé wristband.
Not a fan of the white criss-cross ridges on Rafa's sleeveless.
Fed's has a nice shade of blue and the white ridges do just enough to not make it...
