    Djokovic/Federer/Monfils return: Keys to anticipation

    What do you guys think about guessing & the frequency to keep the server honest. If the server is good at disguising his toss, surely you don't want to just keep standing in the same place to allow the server to get into a rhythm. If he sees a spot that he can go for and he's been able to make...

    Djokovic/Federer/Monfils return: Keys to anticipation

    Yep I was just naming a few. Murray is an incredible returner. These were some stats on ace % I read on another thread. Anyway, like you're saying, it's obviously not just how little you get aced but what you actually do with it. Agassi got aced the highest out of this group but is widely...

    Djokovic/Federer/Monfils return: Keys to anticipation

    What do you think the keys to anticipating big serves are? What do you guys think make people like djoks & fed so good at anticipating serves - or even Monfils who held Dr. Ivo aceless way back when. I find it difficult because some of the best servers work so hard on disguising their toss yet...

    Backhand Tips

    Thanks. I just put my phone on the court against a can of tennis balls. It wouldn't capture the necessary height when recording horizontally. Il just ask somebody to film next time!!

    Yonex Ezone DR 98 + Lead tape + string suggestions

    Allo Allo! I'm looking for some suggestions on where to put lead to my Ezone Dr 98. Long story short, I love the feel of the DR but i feel it lacks a bit of bite due to its incredible flexy frame. I was okay with that as I've had a history of shoulder problems. With that being said I do want...

    Best Racquets for injury-prone Shoulder?

    While I agree the fed 97 isn't a good combination, I don't think a light frame will help either. The lighter the frame, the faster the player will end up swinging - which is a huge culprit when it comes to the rotating joint. The heavier the frame, the more work the racket will do for creating...

    Yonex VCORE 330 vs 310 + Lead Tape

    Hey guys, Looking for advice - demoed both the Yonex frames and was very pleased with both of them. I did find the 330 slightly too heavy, and the 310 slightly too light. I could get slightly more racket speed with the 310 and naturally it was a bit more maneuverable on volleys etc. I have...

    15 Months Post Op Labrum repair - Serve help

    Yeah, i'm still doing strengthening. I am 100 ROM. I find that when my toss is slightly forward it helps, but i find that weird given that you like at people like Fed and they are making almost a slightly angled straight line on contact. I'l try to take a vid at some point soon. Also, it...

    15 Months Post Op Labrum repair - Serve help

    Hey guys, So, I had surgery for a torn labrum about 15 months ago. I did all the rehab and stuff, and i have full strength and range of motion back. I'm back to playing full tennis and everything (took a long time to progress the serve). But I find when i really try to pop a serve, it...

    Breathe Right Nose Strips

    I find that they definitely help me sleep at night. The quality of oxygen through the nose is much better because it's all filtered and stuff. If I don't wear the strips I end up breathing through my mouth.

    Djokovic wants Murray to win the AO

    I don't like Nole much. I think he says a lot of the things for the sake of his rep. Lame.

    Verdasco to win many Grand Slams

    He needs to stop cracking under pressure. I think he's got the game, just not the head. Not yet at least.

    Div 1 Eligibility- Year off- Surgery

    I am in the graduating class of 2011 and I do have a traditional graduation date. Though my birthday is in November, I just realized that university apps are due (for the most part) January 1st of the year one plans to attend. So Even If I took a year off, the only time I would save is between...

    Torn Labrum- Should I get surgery?

    Thanks for all the info everybody, I'm going to get a second opinion soon. I think the truth in the matter is, for serious tennis players, playing almost comes secondary to fitness. Fitness is input, tennis is output, at the end of the day they should be even. I think I will try to really bulk...

    Torn Labrum- Should I get surgery?

    Yeah, I think i'm definitely going to get another opinion. Doctor are so flipping busy these days. My parents are doctors, so they arrange the best for me, but apparently to no avail so far. The thing is, time is of the essence for me. If I do the PT and i get stronger but it doesn't help, I...

    Torn Labrum- Should I get surgery?

    Well, to tell you the truth, I was kind of upset with the surgeons advice. I was quite surprised as well, considering this doctor has a good reputation. So firstly, he didn't look at the full MRI, just the one picture given on the report that showed the torn labrum. He said it could be an...

    Hey everyone, This is my first post on talk tennis. I am a U18 canadian tennis player. I've been to nationals and tennis definately is a big part of my life. I'm torn (no pun intended) between getting and not getting surgery for my labrum. I've had an MRI arthogram and my labrum is definately...
