    I was just sitting here eating some brownies and i had a thought, would Federer ever switch to a tweener like frame. I am talking a racket that's like the Steam or a pure drive like racket. I could defiantly see him using a less demanding stick in 5 years. and btw before anyone asks im not...

    The Tennis Channel Stinks

    How come when I look at the Golf NBA NHL NFL ect. that they show old classic games. The big thing I have against TC is that their version of a classic match was the Davis Cup a few weeks ago, or for the millionth time some Clay Court match that's been on non-stop. God-forbid even some classic...

    just a thought. im thinking about sometime when i am bored to string some racket up just by hand. i am guessing that it would feel like a net and not produce any power at all, sorta like a racket with a snapped main.. btw, i dont mean as an all the time deal, i mean just wanted to try it once...

    I know that tennis rackets are a big hobby for a lot of people, and that they like to use many different sticks because they are having fun and that they want to play with every stick under the sun. thats alright in my view, but what gets me are the people who go through countless demos, find...

    Western forehand Grip users.

    Who all uses the western forehand grip/and why do you use it? I use it because no other grip feels comfortable to me. ive tried using eastern, semi, in between; but i keep coming back to the western. Even with a mid size racket and 18*20 pattern, i love this grip.

    Wilson Extreme Synthetic.

    I strung this stuff at 70lbs and i am really liking the string. It is still soft even at a high tension. I am getting some huge topspin with it, too, but i am also landing my shots deeper. Even with it being strung so tight, i dont feel like i am losing any power, i am able to really rip the...

    I played my first lobber

    I won but god it was not pretty. Every ball back was a friggen moon ball deep. It got to a point where I was bored. We played a 10 game pro set because it was non confrence. We were on serve until 2-3. I became relaxed and hit every ball a little slower but wit more topspin to the ad side. Then...
