    Federer Vs Djokovic-Some Observations

    Just watched Aussie Open Semi. I had heard that Djokovic played his best, took him at his word, then watched the match. This post is taking nothing from Djokovic so you Zealots need not chime in. Djokovic is a great slow court player and played well, but Fed lost that match, I've never seen...

    Best Tennis Match in History?

    I say yes, first let me give my criteria. The stakes? Biggest prize in Tennis, Wimbledon Crown. The players? Two who are considered some of if not the greatest players of all time. The match? Wimbledon Finals, 2008! Both men IMO played their absolute best, were in the absolute prime, and never...

    Why Federer will never beat Djokovic in a final

    My friend and I notice this, the announcers today seemed to mention it, but we feel alone, not sure why fans don't make a bigger deal out of this, it's clear, it's fact, yet where is the discussion? Wimbldon, US Open, WTF this year, Fed is AGGRESSIVE all the way through the tournaments, blows...

    Whose going to stop Djokovic next year?

    I'm not a Djokovic fan, let me say that at the top, but he is a great, dominate, modern slow court player, I get the feeling that next year no one can get in his way. Fed? He might get him on a couple of fast courts, Dubai and Cincy, but I don't think he has the mental confidence to beat him in...

    What happened Fed/Djoker WTF? I missed it

    Did Fed choke? Did Djokovic simply outplay a "On" Fed? What happened, try to leave your bias home

    What is your playing style?

    I don't mean the "Six playing styles explained", I mean you specifically? IE I've played since I was 12, have gone through small rackets to new modern equipment and strings, was a 6.0 but will be competing in 5.5 USTA Tourney's. Am 39 and just getting over many knee issues. I play a very...

    Does anyone see any signs of Federer aging?

    May seem like a stupid question as everyone always talks about it, but my question is what, specifically, have you noticed with Federer in regards to "Aging" compared to say 2005. So "I have noticed his timing off", "He doesn't have the stamina", etc. And I'm not talking about 2013 or the time...

    A possible answer to the "Do Tennis Pro's Use Steroids"

    I'm reaching 40, so have had some testosterone tests done as I'm very interested in bio-identical hormones (Something you older men should look into I might add). When we talk about high end athletes, clearly they want every advantage, and many have said that tennis pro's take "Steroids" with...

    Anyone notice "Inconsistant" stringbed in PS97?

    In TW review, all of the players kept talking about a inconsistent string bed, seemingly a over powered sweet spot so they'd be in a rally then all of a sudden the ball would go long. My friend has one, and three times I borrowed it and it just seemed like the bomb, perfect, powerful, accurate...

    Who on this forum would buy and play FAST BALLS?

    I understand this is racquet section so leave the post. I'm trying to persuade Head official to release fast balls. Those of us who played in the 90's know what it's like to play on fast conditions, so I'm trying to get him, even on a limited basis to release fast balls, which by the way...

    Those that say Pro Staff 97 doesn't feel like a Pro Staff, IE 90, 85

    I don't understand this, and I'm one to know, I know that fast moving head of the 85 with 12.5 ounces behind it, I know the supreme accuracy and feel of the PS90 (Hit with mine yesterday), but that 97 FEELS THE SAME. A few "Grant it's", it's not as fast coming around, but and I don't know if...

    Coach the Pro's: Gael Monfils

    Ask him if he wants, really wants to win a Grand Slam. If so, then make an agreement to keep him, just one year under lock and key, no going out, he has to eat what the trainer gives him, train exactly how the trainer says, work his tail off, and I think he can pick one up.

    Coach the Pros; Novak Djokovich

    He's got such a solid game, however it wouldn't hurt him to learn to come in, he hits a massive shot and stays back, may as well learn to come forward take the ball mid air. Second, get arid of your arrogant attitude-Ouch I'm going to get killed by that one, sorry every Novak fan.

    Coach the Pro's: Now, Roger Federer

    Simple, see a psychiatrist so that he can control his nerves in finals, and then just play like he does the rest of the tournaments, aggressive. If he does that, if he DID that he'd be at 19 right now, Wimby and US Open was on his racquet but he froze and played TOTALLY DIFFERENT than all of the...

    Coach the Pro's: First, Andy Murray

    So here we go, a bunch of hacks and good players telling these guys what they need to do to play better. One rule, I don't want to hear from these people who think "Unless you are better than they are you have to shut up", this is fun and we can get some great ideas, possibly. My suggestion...

    Who would buy a custom made raquet just for them?

    If there was a manufacturer where you could send your specs, your graphics, and have it custom made and shipped to you in one month would you buy one assuming the price is about the same for a new racquet? So you can say 98 inch head, 12 oz unstrung, 14 points headlight, whatever you want, 66...

    Have you used the SABR Yet?

    On Sunday with the rain delay my friend and I went to the courts. So of course I figured I'd try the SABR, let me tell you if you are good and practice it works! In the beginning I made a mistake, went right on the line, so I had to pick it up off the ground, but when I was one foot behind the...

    Best player of all time VERSUS most successful

    Seems most on this forum are very confused about the difference, there are great players that are not as successful as others, Borg for example was a great player, could have ended his career with a ton of GS's if he would have not retired at 25 and played the French, so he wasn't as successful...

    Why Federer will win #18

    First, there is always the "X" factor, some days, even the best, don't show up 100%, that being said, here are some facts. 1. This year, Fed has beat Novak 2-3. 2. Fed's wins have come on fast courts. 3. Patrick McEnroe, Brad Gilbert and Federer himself said US Open plays faster than Wimbledon...

    2015 Babolat Pure Drive Review

    Never do this but had to chime in. I'm one of those "Nearing forty real players use small heavy head light racquet" kind of guys, a 6.0 player in my "Prime". So 90's of course PS85, then Feds 90, each one, then 6.1 95. I always thought these players with 100 inch light racquets were using a...

    Hello Everyone! Last time, I have TWO Wilson 6.1 95's, one basically new, one the previous Red and Black BLX, both for ONE BABOLAT PURE DRIVE, either the 2012 model or the new one, don't really care about the condition, but would think a stringing with Luxilon Rough would be more than fair...

    Nadal Vs Fognini-Best match you've ever seen?

    Nadal is going through his blowout of rival Fognini, a perennial player who has the skill, hits 95 mph fore and backhands, but doesn't train, doesn't take it serious, would rather complain. However that Fognini didn't show up, the serious pro turned up, in fact I didn't see him get mad once...

    Reasons why Americans aren't dominating tennis like before

    This will be a bit of a compilation of different reasons I've heard by experts over the last couple of years, that doesn't mean it's correct, just some possible reasons. 1. The first is my theory, and that is that everyone is a winner, everyone gets a trophy, everyone on school tennis gets a...

    They do this every year, I mean they don't HAVE A CLUE! It's the same thing every year, rush home to get together with friends to watch Federer, they show us parts of pieces of the first and second set, then switch to Hewitt/Tomic, NO ONE CARES ABOUT THEM, how stupid are they? It's like...
