    Self-feeding ground stroke drill, why my shot lacks power?

    I'm reminded of a group coaching session when someone asked the coach, " I want to be able to hit the ball harder", to which the coach with a deadpan face replied, " Well, hit the ball harder then ".

    Some advice please, I’m currently using a TC100 70RA 310/315 (9 hl) all in weight 337g (strung with Tecnifibre Duramix HD at 54lbs) and whilst I’m enjoying it it it giving me arm ache and I do find it a bit ‘heavy’ i.e. slow to swing, noticeable on serve, which I assume is a function of...

    Couple of TC100 questions; 63 vs 70 RA, is it a case of trade off between comfort and power ? 11.4 oz weight, 7/9/10 HL, what is the expected difference in outcome across the three options? Thanks.

    Tecnifibre Official - Racquets

    Have to agree with the 'giant pocket/swimming pool'. Really like the rackpack idea, just needs a small outside pocket for keys etc. and perhaps two zipped compartments instead of one so that you don't open the whole thing each time

    Your opinions that majority of people do not share?

    No junior should copy Nadal, he is a freak. Federer is the GOAT not the BOAT Djokovic is finished Women should be paid 40% less at slams Shapovalov is only popular because of his OHBH Shapovalov will be world No1 All tennis should be played topless McEnroe would have beaten all the nextgen for...

    I've read an awful lot of this thread and am keen to spend some £. However given that you can't demo, I need to make a reasonably informed decision as to what to buy. Been using a Yonex Ai Ezone 100-> DR 100 (didn't like the new Ezone) , decided to try some new racquets and really loved the...

    Wide Shoes - UK

    The US has 2e/4e widths but I can't find any in the UK. What shoes can you recommend that are 'wide' in the forefoot and provide a good level of cushioning? I've recently tried the Adidas Barricade Boost (2017) and the K-Swiss Bigfoot Light 3 and both are too narrow, the last Yonex's I tried...

    Recommendation for next string...

    I'm after some recommendations for my next string, probably a multi but not adverse to another poly. A little about me, I'm in my late fifties, use a Yonex DR 100 and would put myself as an average 4.0 (in the UK so based on watching videos). Strings I've tried; Babolat Xcel 16 - had...

    Wearing Glasses and Playing Worse At Night

    I had the same issue, the difference was I used to play in contacts and as soon as the lights came on I might as well have stopped playing. In may case following an eye exam and a very minor chnage in prescription I changed to playing in glasses and whilst not as good as playing in natural...

    My partner (Female, 50) has taken up tennis and been playing 1-2 times a week for the last 6-7 months and is probably a lowish 3.0, flat hitting, can hit reasonably (relatively) hard. Learning to impart spin. Her racquet is a Wilson Juice 108, strung iirc with Wilson NXT (i.e. factory strung...

    Prince->Babolat->Elbow pain-> ? ...advice please

    A bit about me, I'm 55, 6'3'' and a reasonable 4.0. I'd been playing with a Prince Black Team (100 sq in, 27 in, 292g strung/280 unstrung 9.8oz, 3 PTS head heavy, swing weight 295, stiffness 66, string pattern 16 main/19 cross). Around last Sept the strings broke and someone lent me an...

    Racquet recommendation for partner ?
