    You Win Your Matches In Practice

    "Who, cares!" They are not blind, specializing in not be being narcissistic at all, 'mummy-bl(O0)gger.'

    You Win Your Matches In Practice

    I'm the only one who would've had a fighting chance to stop him, by self-arresting him, dead in his tracks; because, fresh-&-easy, 'penguins,' come-&-go, doing as they please, commenting as they please. (Well, as, 'indignity,' means being in separate places, at the same time, and, well, then...

    Technique or Skill

    But, it goes deeper than that. The real brittle answerj,II,j!...,..doc.Technique can help you cope, ...#*`!until, it can't. Therefore, skill, is the ability to cope.*'!

    Too large a grip size?

    Not true. Feel, ALL THE POWER OF THE UNIVERSE, when, picking-up a small chain, at the very end of the twitchy-stra!i!Nn. RIGHT there, that's where it comes in. Do you really think, the best players in the universe don't know what they're doing? Feeling? It's in that moment, where small grip...

    Yonex RD-7

    The reason is because the RD-7 is like a whale of a log cabin. Imagine a whale, with massive *stuck* in the mid-section'ish. That is why. Take a RD-8 vs. RD-7, same exact mold. If you weight a RD-8 up to seemingly similar weighty specs, the RD-7 will still feel "weightier." The RD-7 feels like...

    Better player- Davydenko or Kafelnikov

    Lol? Here it is again, Sampras also said that KAfelnikov had the best groundies he'd ever faced the first time they played. You reference Agassi, but Agassi matched up well with him as did Becker. Name all the others who said he wasn't that talented. Kafelnikov was for SURE considered one of...

    Better player- Davydenko or Kafelnikov

    So...? You're putting to much into individual matchups. Kafelnikov obliterated Kuerten at the US Open before that match with Hewitt. Those two matches were a CLASSIC example of how big a role individual *style* matchups can and do regularly play in this sport. Tennis isn't always simply a game...

    Connors and Collins in 1978

    Bud is a guy who can rub certain type the wrong way or make them uncomfortable, because a lot of people find zany looking eccentrics who go out of their way to SHOW the world that they are that eccentric...annoying as heck (the pants bud, the pants!...Bud's the kind of guy who if he showed up to...

    And the LF saga continues...

    I don't think it has anything to do with being disorganized. In the beginning they were EXCEPTIONAL at filling orders AND going above and beyond in the question and answer/shopping phase. In the early days, they were held up on a pedestal on here and considered THE gold standard for customer...

    How Did Feliciano Lopez Get So Far Off Track With His BH?

    Yes, while this is true, IF there is someone capable of making a major change in its game; it's the more advanced player believe it or not. I've done this myself. A life-long two-hander (in fact, it wss my BEST shot on my good days), then stopped playing "seriously" and then just messed around...

    Connors vs Agassi from the baseline

    Btw, to me Lendl was a more versatile baseliner than Lendl. He could absorb Agassi's pace and weather the barrage I think the better than Agassi could when Lendl decided to unload on him and jerk HIM around. Agassi was only really great when he was taking the ball on the rise and jerking YOU...

    RAB Monoflex

    Gold monoflex felt slightly "springier" to me, and the green slightly "zippier"/"crispier" would be slight distinction. The "natural" colored version, the 17L 1.20 version was just...blah...stick tongue out in defiance. Apparently, I was told by RAB that you can order reels of Monoflex...

    Connors vs Agassi from the baseline

    The thing though is if you're comparing 80s yeah, but I really don't think the techniques are that revolutionized. Ferreira, Berasategui, Bruguera, Muster, Courier, etc. all employed pretty "modern" techniques...and yet, Sampras' forehand still was a marquee weapon of his day regardless. And...

    Connors vs Agassi from the baseline

    Well, the thing is I grew up with graphite and "modern" rackets (let's face it, rackets are pretty much still the same just rebadged every year with new decals representing this year's "new" technology that's actually an older technology that just gets recycled after a few years after the...

    Lets go Back to Faster Courts and get rid of all these pusher baseliners!

    There's NOTHING I hate more than this kind of prejudice in tennis. I'm a fan of ALL styles. I'm sick of posters calling some of the world's greatest ball strikers "pushers." To "push" at the level of Nadal, to do that to win freaking MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS of dollars, requires UNBELIEVABLE...
