    Mens tour a mess at the moment.

    I'm actually kinda sad HAMMER got banned. Yeah, he was annoying, offensive, and absolutely awful, but he was entertaining. It would have been fun to keep that thread going for a few more hours.

    American style of tennis

    This is the Courier-mold of player. Many American players in this generation are effectively mini-Couriers. Big serve. Big forehand. Average or below-average everything else. It's actually very strange. Why are they taught this way? Why aren't there any guys taught in the Agassi-mold? IMO Andre...

    How to teach a 1hbh to a young kid?

    Many people say that the rarity of the 1hbh in today's tennis is due to the fact that kids are starting earlier and earlier. It seems that kids need to be playing by around 8 years old if they wanna make it big. The problem is that it is very difficult to teach a 1hbh to a kid this young. Most 8...

    Backhand DTL is a game changer

    Yeah the BH DTL is a crucial shot. I think Agassi said in Open something like: "If he doesn't take the BH up the line, I will own the baseline" (don't remember exact quote, but it was something to this effect). The BH is generally a less explosive and flexible shot, so most good players center...

    Federer's ground strokes seem a bit off.....

    How many slams would Agassi have won if he had stuck with his GOAT racquet?

    How many split steps?

    I take either 1 or 0. I'm not very fast, but my anticipation is pretty good. So my movement relies heavily on anticipating my opponent's shot and starting to run early. When I get a good read on my opponent's next shot I sometimes just hit and start running immediately to cover his expected...

    Cincinnati R3 2014 : Roger Federer (2) vs Gael Monfils

    In before BP attributes Federer's racquet toss to a deep, subconscious hatred of the RF97.

    Cincinnati R3 2014 : Roger Federer (2) vs Gael Monfils

    Combination of losing some motivation for competitive tennis, becoming more involved in other hobbies, becoming lazy and most importantly going off to college.

    Djokovic is 4-6 in recent 10 sets

    Yes, they did. AND THEY WERE WRONG! The people saying Djokovic is done after Toronto/Cinci are going to turn out to be just as wrong IMO!

    Ban the "F" bomb

    Nope, just because someone is offended doesn't make it bad. A lot of people are offended by my political views and my opinions on various social issues, but it doesn't make me a bad person. I have a right to my own opinion.

    Ban the "F" bomb

    I work at a country club and never have any problems. I never swear around my boss or any of the members, but around my co-workers I loosen up on it. It's not intentional or anything. Profanity is just a normal part of my relaxed vocabulary. It takes a conscious effort on my part to stop it from...
