    This teaching pro hitting 100 MPH forehand all the time ? with wilson and cheap racket ? Real ?

    It probably has standard synthetic gut strings. These strings are actually pretty powerful despite being very cheap so it's really not an issue. They're just not going to generate as much spin as poly.

    I know this is almost a year late, but I stumbled on this in my bookmarks and was actually on my PC to do the frame calculating. Basically, his speed sensor seems to be pretty reliable as the speed numbers I get from counting frames are very close. Like within 5%

    please tell me , how the hell robin soderling beat nadal in 2009 RG R16 ?

    MEP vs ET Players - Original TT Epic

    If we venture into the niche that is progressive rock listeners, Annie Haslam is extremely well known. Renaissance also had a fair amount of commercial success in their heyday. Great band too. Perceived popularity depends a lot on context. I can lament the fact that I love Morita Doji's (森田童子 )...

    Where would number one woman rank on ATP?

    Evans got robbed of a break by sleepy line-judges. Could be decisive.
