    Golfers change clubs based on the surface, so…

    Must check for right underwear before serve.

    Can you guess my level off a forehand alone?

    My thought exactly. Solid technique, I'd love to see a bit more weight transfer forward and more extension on the follow-through, otherwise all the fundamentals are there.

    Pure Strike 3rd Gen vs TF40 305 vs EZONE 98 16x19

    I'd strongly consider the new Technifibre Tfight ISO 305g, that combines power, control and feel. It is a viable competitor to Pure Strike. Pure Strike Tour is a perfect combination of power and control, with low string tension it plays comfortably. Give it a try if 320g unstrung weight and...

    Yoga vs Pilates vs Stretching?

    @atatu How many times per week do you practice Pilates?

    Fake underarm serve should not be allowed

    I agree with OP. Fake serve should be considered a fault, just like a failure to connect with the ball on a regular serve. In our sport, the point starts after the serve is made. The fake action indicates the start of the point, so if the serve is not delivered, the player faults.

    Seeing the ball clearly for a brief moment - but how do I replicate it?

    My understanding is that the Zone is a more continuous and flowing experience. My experiences are very brief. It's as if everything becomes more vivid and hyper-real just for a split second.

    Seeing the ball clearly for a brief moment - but how do I replicate it?

    @Chas Tennis I actually hit with decent topspin, including the winners I mentioned.

    Seeing the ball clearly for a brief moment - but how do I replicate it?

    I sometimes have these experiences when I see the ball extremely clearly for a brief moment, just fractions of a second. Usually after i hit a great shot, rarely right before I hit the ball. Time slows down, I see the ball shaper, observe its revelations as if in show motion. Usually I have...

    Tecnifibre T-Fight ISO

    With 335 SW, looks like a promising alternative to Pure Strike Tour 3G. I remember Tenncom from Youtube saying that RS plays similar to PST but slightly better. ISO looks like improvement over RS in terms of SW. My only concert is 305g weight, as I really gelled with my 320g racquet and its...

    Another "racquet advice wanted" thread

    I would suggest Head Speed Pro (2022). Same head size of 100, a bit lighter, similar SW, nice low flex of 60, decent vibration frequency of 140, excellent reviews. Also worth considering: ProKennex Ki Black Ace (315g) Wilson Clash 100 Pro v2 - 2022 Prince ATS Textreme Tour 100 (310) - 2022

    Is Dominic Thiem back?

    He will get back to peak form by the time Babolat launched Pure Strike Gen 4, that is in 2024 :-)

    Racquet closest to Babolat Pure Control Tour???

    @socallefty You and I believe PST is "very plush", but most reviewers do not recognize it as such. I wonder why. Maybe did not spend enough time with the racquet to find the right string setup?

    Racquet closest to Babolat Pure Control Tour???

    @socallefty I always wondered how PST compares to Pure Control Tour - I think you played with the latter?

    Looking for recommendations please

    I second @Bunco 's suggestion - Lotto Raptor Hyperpulse 100. Cushioning is nice, firm and elastic, not mushy at all. Foot doctor Zach of Youtube fame said it's the best shoes in 2022, and that grabbed my attention. Lotto has some special compound material from a partner company that promises...
