    Critique my cross court forehand, quick video

    I was just having a hit with a mate and thought I'd just go and smack the crap outta some cross court forehands, I feel I kinda do that freezing action before hitting it, kinda like Murray, it's strange because If i didn't see myself on video I would have thought I was more looser looking and...

    Pure Strike 2017 16x19, anyone string with Multi?

    So after a history of tennis elbow I haven't used Babolat since about 2013, since then I've stuck with Prince and a Wilson sixone 95 from the mid 2000's, I purchased the Pure Strike 2017 16x19 after demo-ing it for close to a week and was surprised that it felt more comfortable then my old...

    Critique my tennis serve

    So I'm doing a few things wrong here, I do some silly little step forward as I'm about to hit the ball and also I feel like I mostly arm the ball which results in a foot fault each time lol and could maybe get easier power if done more correctly, also is my ball toss too low? sorry about the...

    Jiri Vesely with the fastest serve of Wimby so farr

    Just checked out the stats of Wimbledon and the fastest serve so far is 143 Mph orr 230 kph, keep in mind he is only 20 years old, that's very impressive, hugeee serve, wonder if he'll be a contender one day for fastest serve once he gets a little older, bigger

    People here underestimating others serve speeds

    Okay so i realized lately a lot of people have been putting up links to videos of there serves and some were quite fast, heavy looking, but a majority of people would be all like ''90 mph at best'' orr ''looks about 70 mph, 80 at best'' then they'd be some people uploading there own serve videos...

    Which one of the BIG servers has the best ground game

    John Isner, Ivo Karlovic or Kevin Anderson I'll admit I haven't seen a heck of a lot of these 3 but from what i know and hear from people, if you were to take away the trajectory and and high percentage of there serves or give them the serve level of a average 6 footer they would not have...

    Some facts regarding the weak/strong Era discussion

    So I dunno if someones already put these stats up somewhere but i haven't seen it anywhere so I'll chuck these up here, first I'll say this is in no way a GOAT thread nor am I insinuating who's the GOAT, GOAT discussions are just silly to me. During Pete Sampras career, in all of his 14...

    Okay so the other day i put up a vid of me hitting serves, and a lot of people were saying things like, my right arm lifts up too high right as i throw the ball, my ball toss is too low and not in front of me enough, my right leg after the follow through seems to fling up awkwardly in the air...

    So here's a vid of me serving, quality ain't great, filmed with a Go Pro HD 2, stuck it up against the fence and there's a bit of distance between the fence and baseline, so i had to edit the video and zoom in so you can actually see the ball, THUS losing image quality (will take out...

    A little dissappointed in the media

    I live in Melbourne Australia and throughout the day have seen numerous news headlines and T.V updates about last nights final and It's so disappointing to keep seeing and hearing ''Stanislas Wawrinka defeats an INJURED Nadal to win his first Grandslam'', for anyone watching the match from the...

    Anyone else think this is what happened tonight?

    Anyone else think this is what happened tonight? I don't really believe Nadal could be that injured to be honest... I think Nadal is at this point after losing the first set and being completely outplayed then broken in the 2nd set in the first game just overwhelmingly nervous to the point that...

    Will there ever be another under 18 year old Grand Slam winner?

    I was just thinking in the history of Male tennis there haven't been too many Grand slam winners at the age of 18, i can recall 4 off the top of my head in the last 30 years, Bjorn Borg, Mats Wilander, Boris Becker and Michael Chang. Nadal was just 19 years old and 2 days when he won RG in...

    What do you all think of David Goffin?

    Just watched highlights of him from last years French Open against Federer. I think he's great! great movement, great groundstrokes, and i love his attitude, he doesn't walk around with a brutal intense look on his face like Nadal, he doesn't walk around like his invincible like Djokovic, he...

    How many matches has Federer lost when he's had Match Point

    He's my Fav player on par with Nadal, but as great as he's been over the last decade i think he's had more tough losses then any other player in tennis history, Wimby 2008, 3 french open Finals in a row, US Open 2009, 2 consecutive US Open semi finals while having 2 match points in each, the...
