    DonDiego's claim to racquetholics 7 kingdoms crown thread

    Are you sure you wouldn't prefer that they surrender their racquets so you can try them all?

    Dunlop 2017

    Check out this link from a link posted in another thread that looks potentially promising. At least there's mention of a Tour, 3.0, 5.0, 6.0, and 7.0, so the numbering scheme may not be entirely dead. Just gotta see if/when they launch or hit the US. The Tour specifically sounds like it might...

    Prince Classic Response 97: Need Help From TW Staff Please

    There have been a few threads about how people set up this frame. From those, it seems it's not uncommon to add a little lead at 12 or 2/10 just to give it a little more pop. So it's possible that sort of solution might help in your case, too. I've got two PCR97s, but haven't leaded them at all...

    Custom Paint Job - Wilson Pro Staff 95

    Awesome! Not surprised it was that low of weight knowing that it was just masking tape. If it were other materials, it could have worked out to be more. At least we found where 4 of those grams went :p On that note, I'd wager that the thickness of the paint overall now is quite a bit less than...

    Custom Paint Job - Wilson Pro Staff 95

    It wouldn't be exact, but you could tape up the handle about the same as before, remove the tape, and then weigh the tape by itself.

    Custom Paint Job - Wilson Pro Staff 95

    Your first weigh-in has paper or plastic over the grip to protect it. I don't see that in the later weigh-ins. That's probably a large part of the 'missing' 30 grams.

    So Fed reached 2016 Wimb SF with an unrecovered knee ?

    Don't discount a young player entirely due to having a weak mental game. I seem to recall a young player with lots of potential named Novak Djokovic having major issues with his mental game early in his career. I think it's fair to say he's overcome that issue.

    Federers Knee Injury Was Not From Playing Tennis

    The bath incident was the start of the knee issue.

    Looks like Prince has made an effort to revive its Shark

    I know they've got the Response Classic, but it's been out a while now... why not a Textreme Response? Warriors are white (minus the limited editions), Tours are green and orange, and now the Shark is blue. They could use a red one, and that'd be about perfect for a revived Response.

    Unorthodox Stringing technique?

    I can't imagine how 11m would be enough string to allow a pre-weave of an entire frame plus enough slack for pulling. I mean, if it's working for them, more power to them I guess? I really don't suspect it could cause any issues for the frame or strings. It just sounds like a complete mess to...

    Unorthodox Stringing technique?

    Are they like, threading all the mains, tensioning one at a time in a typical balanced center-out method, and then pre-weaving all the crosses and tensioning those one at a time? Or do you mean that they're both threading the mains and weaving all the crosses prior to pulling anything? If it's...

    Apologizing for hitting the net cord

    And a shot that barely goes out was just a few millimeters from being an excellent shot... moot point. Hitting the net cord is a mistake. You don't apologize for winning the point because of an opponent's mistake.

    Apologizing for hitting the net cord

    Do you apologize when you make an unforced error and lose a point? Do you apologize when you take advantage of a poor shot by the other player and hit a winner? No. The convention is that you apologize when an obvious mistake by you is what wins you the point. This really isn't a difficult...

    Can Tennis ever be an everyman sport?

    Not that this is unexpected, but this thread is extremely tennis-biased. Unless you're an ex-player yourself, you don't just go shoot hoops with your kid on the weekends, plop them into high school tryouts, and wind up with a kid worthy of a significant college scholarship and potential NBA team...
