    2019 Indian Wells F - [4] Federer vs [7] Thiem

    Thiem wasn’t a mug. So fed played one real player and lost. Lol

    Adjusting as you get older (50+)?

    Ya that’s probably the reason. I’ve heard about these surfaces and have seen them advertised but never played on them. I’m just surprised that a cushioned hard court has not been introduced to the pro game yet. The hard courts are tough on the body and I’ve heard many pro players complain about...

    2019 Indian Wells F - [4] Federer vs [7] Thiem

    He played nobody the only blather is coming from you claiming it was not a cakewalk draw. He played a legit player in the final and lost. But prior to that he played nobody so getting to the final was a cake walk. Stan is coming back from knee surgery and is not even close to his top form...

    2019 Indian Wells F - [4] Federer vs [7] Thiem

    He swept the field? That’s hilarious because he played the easiest weakest draw possible in a 1000.

    2019 Indian Wells F - [4] Federer vs [7] Thiem

    That’s because Thiem was the only good player he faced, he only played mugs until the final.

    I’m a lot like you I rarely play doubles and most of my partners are considerably younger. Glad to hear you were able to retire, nothing like being free from the work world. I’ve never had ankle problems but when I play sets I have been using the ASO ankle braces for years. I’ve had some...

    Adjusting as you get older (50+)?

    I’m really surprised that there are not more of these softer surfaces being used. A friend of mine that coaches high school tennis said that his team played on some in Bloomington Illinois. He didn’t get to hit on them but he said they looked to play real close to hard courts but the ball...

    Adjusting as you get older (50+)?

    It really does not feel bad, not near as harsh as you would think. You have to remember if I string a racket at 70 lbs just sitting in my bag the first 24 hours I can’t remember for sure but it loses at least 5lbs. Then a few more the next day and another 3 or 4 after the first hit. So I...

    I need to update my Sig. I’m back to using my Wilson six one 95. With 17 gauge ALU at 70lbs.

    The good thing about bike riding is that it’s a great workout for the legs but doesn’t hurt the knees and there’s no pounding. But that contraption looks like a torture machine, good thing is you don’t have to take long rides for a good workout.

    I’ve never taken a ride on a bike like that, it sure looks like that would be a workout with those huge tires.

    I get some crunching sound in my shoulder when I bench press sometimes, but like your knee I feel no pain so I don’t worry about it.

    Bianca Andreescu: under the radar but not for long!

    I get what your saying but I think most are just suggesting that if she was a little thinner and more fit she would be that much better. But like you say she is only 18 and has plenty of time to improve fitness. A lot of people think that because a player is a teenager that they are...

    Bianca Andreescu: under the radar but not for long!

    I agree I did like the way she would slice and throw up monnballs and also use drop shots. But the power game she displayed was amazing.

    Anyone use Ashaway MonoGut ZX ?

    Many love it as a cross with Kevlar, my wife uses it as a cross with natural gut and really likes it.
