    Men’s final was x5 the women’s final...

    Seriously why don't the women play best of 5 in slams? Is the WTA still under the impression women don't have the endurance for that?

    Sizing down a grip

    I recently experimented going down from 4 3/8 to 4 1/4 with overgrip. After several months trying it out, I've decided to stay at 4 3/8. I can get more whippy with the smaller grip, but overall stability suffers too much IMO. I found it especially noticeable when I'm at net. If you want to...

    2020 Pure Strike

    Babolat should make the next version heavier and more flexible. Oh wait, I guess it wouldn't be a Babolat anymore if they did. OG Pure Control was the best stick they ever made.

    2019 RG QF: Federer vs Wawrinka

    I'm bummed Stan didn't win today, but happy for Roger. On the plus side this should put Stan back in the top 20 which is nice to see.

    Any Yonex VCORE 95 players? Loving this racquet

    I'm really loving my VCORE 95 a lot these days! I haven't had a racquet with this much control since my old RDX-500 Mid. Right now I've got a full bed of Hyper-G 1.20 but have been thinking about going to a gut/poly hybrid to get a little more power. Think I'm going to try Lux gut 1.25 mains...

    Best natural gut currently

    I've got a few packs of Luxilon 1.25 from the last big sale. What's the max safe tension for this stuff?

    Yonex QC

    Dang that 2nd one is pretty far off spec for Yonex. If it were me, I'd send it back. Every new Yonex racquet I've ever bought was within 2g of listed specs.

    Best natural gut currently

    How's the string movement in a full bed? One thing that always drives me crazy about full gut is when the strings move around a lot. I've heard the coating on Lux NG helps prevent that?

    Yonex VCORE series 2018

    If I were a big string breaker I'd probably do the same. It takes me a while to saw through the gut mains so I think it's worth it. The poly loses tension faster so I restring the crosses once every other string job. I also try to find the best deals I can on gut. Just got 3 packs of Luxilon gut...

    Yonex VCORE series 2018

    @CiscoPC600 I just don't like the feel of full poly. I've tried it several times, but always feel disconnected from the ball. Gut mains with poly crosses is how I have to roll.

    Yonex VCORE series 2018

    I'm a hybrid guy, so not sure if this will help. Right now I'm liking Klip Legend 17g mains @ 60 lbs and Yonex PTF crosses at 58 lbs. Its a little tight at first, but feels great after the initial break in period.

    Yonex VCORE series 2018

    Good to see the VCORE 95 getting some love. After adding some lead tape at 3 & 9 and replacing the grip I’m loving mine. Static weight now at 342g which feels about perfect to me.
