    2019 Mutua Madrid Open - Men's Singles Discussion

    It’s been an interesting clay season so far, and considering that Madrid is different than the other clay events—faster bc of altitude coupled with Fed’s return, it’s hard to predict.

    Barcelona 2019 SF - Thiem vs Nadal

    If he’s okay physically and the weather cooperates, it is not that unlikely regardless of the draw.

    Nadal: "One of my worst matches on clay in 14 years !"

    Best way to add weight at 12 o clock???

    PinoyRafa, 8 grams will make a huge difference in how your rackets feels swinging your racket. I just put 5 grams at basically 12:00, and it is taking some getting used to, although it is indeed exactly what I needed. Maybe try 5gram first and see how that plays. Also, there is the...

    What is worse for TE? Gut at 55, or Poly at 45 ?

    If you’re TE is severe and you’ve had enough of the pain. Get a cortisone shot to break the cycle and stop the pain but make sure to get your doctor to refer you for physical therapy. DO THE PHYSICAL THERAPY for as long as needed and there is no more pain and the surrounding muscles/tissue...

    Can’t wait to watch him some more. He has all the talent in the world.

    The Shape Of Things To Come: Denis Shapovalov!

    Yeah, I saw that thing of beautaaaay of a deft bh drop volley! Main issue remains that Shapo has got to allow his opponents to miss occasionally, play some D, and improve shot selection, all of which will put pressure back on his opponents as opposed to his current modus operandi of attack...

    The Shape Of Things To Come: Denis Shapovalov!

    ok, so I’ve watched this guy and as a lefty, I wanna like him and see him go far. He seems to have one gear/pace, though, which could spell doom against top level versatile players. 1. Way too inconsistent: ok he misses too much, way too much. Although he is clearly a shot maker who at...

    Best way to add weight to the handle???

    bluetack inside handle after removing buttcap. heck, even stick tungsten or lead tape (or even fishing sinkers for you anglers lol) inside a balled up pieces of the bluetack. these methods are easily undone; IOW, theu could be temporary or permanent weight adding solutions. If you’re 100%...

    What is worse for TE? Gut at 55, or Poly at 45 ?

    Yes, but it needs to be prestretched; otherwise, it has a drastic tension loss. I happen to use it as a cross with Kevlar mains because of how these strings interact: the kevlar slides right over the Zyex cc’s, which helps spin. Check out the thread about Kev/Zyex hybrids in Strings section...

    What is worse for TE? Gut at 55, or Poly at 45 ?

    if you have elbow, shoulder, wrist, etc. issues, DITCH. THE. POLY/COPOLY. If pain is super moderate, maybe try it in only crosses as a hybrid. If painful, say goodbye to it asap.

    In praise of Kevlar/ZX hybrid!!!

    been using this high differential setup for more than a year with my Prince Tour ESP 16x 16 and liking it . The initial stock weigh was like 10.4 oz i think so I added weight to the buttcap and a bit on 3 & 9 for increase torsional stability aka twistweight. I finally added about 5 grams to...

    Will Rafa recover mentally from the defeat in Melbourne?

    “Nadal has no shot at RG in his current form.” Biased speculation and a laughable assertion “It would further legitimize Joker as a potential GOAT candidate.” Dude, there is no GOAT for myriad reasons, and Novak is already a legend and one of the best ever. “Their history is brutally...

    Will Rafa recover mentally from the defeat in Melbourne?

    Agree that Novak has always presented a big time matchup problem for Nadal, but about an hour before the infamous “touch,” Nadal had him 2 sets to 1 served for the match twice... so Nadal was in control for most of that match. Conversely, I could use the example of Aussie Open ‘12 final when...
