    Serena Williams' coach exposes 'revolting' state of tennis amid crisis

    How come not one of you has mentioned what everyone says. You only make money if you win the whole thing. To do that you need a team... to have a team you need $$$ The purses need to be cut in half and given to the rest of the field. I could see if you had the ability to step into a tourny...

    Full list of the famous rising USA WTA prospects

    Oooh so you only count age in deciding rising stars.... or is there something else? you should have stated young prospects vs rising stars but go ahead and try to complete your argument. I already proved you wrong with more under 24... your cherry picked age to avoid keys

    First USTA 8.0 match of the year

    In the clutch and grab era and he played 50+ games for about 8 seasons. The rest were spread out. He had great numbers over those 8 seasons the other he was average. However in the clutch and grab era he set such great numbers flailing he didn’t drag them down. I embrace Hasek. He makes my...

    First USTA 8.0 match of the year

    I’ve always been an advocate for strategy it’s better to have than strokes. You guys just can’t admit anything because all you can hang a hat on is wins. I have as much fun just hitting with people and such than all about matches. I can’t see hitting a rally with him being fun. here is...

    First USTA 8.0 match of the year

    You could make the case he should have been in the league sooner but counting his pro European time??? You kidding me? That means A 19 year old Swede has 5 years given they play in a “pro” league as a young kid. But as an NHL goalie he was good for about 7-8 years.

    First USTA 8.0 match of the year

    He was good for seasons from 93-01. Why don’t you look at his stats. Nice try though. And what style does hasek have? What exactly are you right about? You think a save % of .907 is good???? You don’t have a clue

    Denis Shapovalov to Yonex

    I agree with most of what you say, till we go to his racquet. The way he plays it will never work. He tries to finish points on balls you dont finish points on. He pops up on those shots as well and sends them just long. He hits those at 75% and its in, yet he crushes it at 90%+ and it goes...

    First USTA 8.0 match of the year

    no i totally get that.. I have said over and over some play only to win or other reasons. Never judged anything other than to say he is a hack. He has zero strokes and does anything to win. In any sport those that do that are hacks. I think some here need to take their own advice. Admit its...

    Denis Shapovalov to Yonex

    Denis goes big too much. Said it over and over. I love him because he is like us. Just wants to end the point and rips it. Trouble is its out, just like mine. He builds some patience into his game and he will be a force.

    Thread on: STRING TRADES

    Looking to sell or trade a sealed half reel of LXN power rough. Its the 1.25mm and it has not been used. The term half reel can be misleading but its not the 250$ reel its the 125$ reel. I would like to trade for RPM blast or sell for 100$ shipped.

    Tennis bag or backpack?

    i tried a 6 pack and am looking at a 9 due to lack of space, you can fit 3 racquets, but what about shoes, change of clothes, balls, towels, grips. A lot of that you want to keep separate from each other, a 6 pack doesnt allow for that. Try jamming in more and you will start seeing...

    First USTA 8.0 match of the year

    except in chess if I start again playing chess, i will not have to sit in the 1200-1400 range toiling for years against trappers. Or really have to worry about playing tons of trappers at the 1500 level. That is why make my point that in tennis there needs to be something besides W/L because...

    RF97 vs Blade v7

    Owned both, in a nutshell the blade just cant hit as heavy of a ball as the RF97A, at the net the RF is way more stable. I like being able to swing away and not worry about it going out. It has a low launch angle comparative to a 18x20, clearly not one but compared to a PA you can get it...

    First USTA 8.0 match of the year

    Having had a close to a 1700 (Verified online) rating in chess that is not true, you would lose a few points but the sicilian or trapper is only going to stay at your level for a short time and will be rotated quickly to the 1300- level. Chess is a great example in the beginner levels you...

    Men's league tennis - are the classic strokes the best for intermediates?

    I must have been unclear. Most of peoples problems are not with their strokes or grip, they lose to people with the flat or slice only stroke ( the reason for a lot of tennis elbow) because they spent all their time on stroke development, not footwork. If the older classic player would just...

    Is there something wrong w/ my stringing machine?

    I do that occasionally with my elekton neos clone. I single pull the crosses. Why do it? well i just started stringing and wanted the practice so I didnt care. I ended up doing it 4 times before the gut broke. I did lower the poly tension a few pounds though. It seemed to keep the...

    Another Foot Fault Question - Caused by USTA Newsletter

    disagree, its called learn to serve right and if that gets in the other guys head then so be it. I find time to work on my serve to get it right. I bet if you were getting aced by a bombing foot faulted serve you would call it too

    Men's league tennis - are the classic strokes the best for intermediates?

    how come no one has mentioned footwork. Its the biggest issue with any of the hitters. Most people have a servicable stroke that would be served by better footwork. Adult tennis is built around the other guy making the mistake.

    Could Kenin have more stability than the recent GS winners?

    Oooh the village jester lost an argument that never should have been entered. lololololol. Just so funny when someone tries to bust out the classic tennis issue and doesn’t realize this isn’t the one to use it on. Next time, go with serve. Only not with coco.

    Could Kenin have more stability than the recent GS winners?

    lol! Ok she had a couple bad matches, and was injured at the USOpen but. Ya you can try and save your lack of a clue by saying if she wins 20 in a row you’ll consider that as an improvement worth praise lolololololol

    Could Kenin have more stability than the recent GS winners?

    It’s called wanting to post when you know nothing and it is usually a post you can get away with because we all need to improve consistency.... trouble is that’s Kenins weapon. She doesn’t go away and rarely overhits

    Could Kenin have more stability than the recent GS winners?

    So what hasn’t she shown? She has been consistently moving up in the rankings, her play is improving, and she can stay in about every rally. What Is funny is that’s what all three WTA champs said on ESPN Today “Do NoT get into a rally with Kenin she is too consistent and hits with too much...
