    Breathing properly during a point

    I tried skipping yesterday and was gassing out within the first five minutes. From that point on I concentrated on my breathing and finished the next ten minutes without tiring. Im hitting with a 5.0 tomorrow and will be focusing on breathing the entire time. Looking forward to it.

    Sounds good. I will give it a try.

    Breathing properly during a point

    I don’t think it’s mental fatigue because I’m panting after longer rallies when my opponent aren’t

    Breathing properly during a point

    I’m a 38 yr old 4.5 player who can run 5KM in 23 minutes but find I tire much quicker than all my opponents after an average 8 shot rally. This includes 50 yr olds who are far from skinny. I’ve been told by coaches that I should not get that tired and that my breathing during the point must be...

    If no majors are played in 2020 it will crush Novak’s chances of catching Fed

    I was not speculating on Novak’s thoughts. I was making a generalized statement on how this will change the landscape of the majors race.

    https://au.sports.yahoo.com/millmans-fears-entire-2020-atp-season-001748639--spt.html He will be approaching 34 years old with potentially no competitive matches under his belt in almost 12 months. His style of playing backboard tennis and long points will become harder and harder as he gets...

    Federer beat Djokovic 23 times; can Djokovic do the same to Thiem?

    I think it’s a coin toss with maybe a slight edge to Thiem. A great stat I heard is that Thiem was 7-2 against the big three last year and he was battling mono for a few months.

    Rewatching USO 13 final

    Exactly! if you took a 24 yr old Nadal or Federer gave them modern racquet technology and training I think they would dominate today. I can’t say the same about Djokovic unfortunately.

    Shapo's a comin

    He has learned how to disguise his toss and even Novak struggled with it. Youzhny has made a huge difference in his game. He could make some real noise this year on the hard courts.

    Australian Open is Djokovic's to win or lose

    It’s a very important major for him given his odds of winning the French are slim at best and a lot can happen between now and Wimbledon/USO. If he hopes to catch Fed’s major record I would consider this a must win especially given that Tsits, Shapo and Medvedev will only continue to get better.

    Bianca Andreescu!

    This continues to happen. The writing is on the wall for a very short career unfortunately. Sad.

    Felix Auger Aliassime

    He has some serious problems with his serve mechanics and ball toss. With a height of 6,4 he has a much bigger margin for error than the majority of players on tour yet his serve has been a disaster for almost the entire last year. I also question his coaching team. Who are these guys? He may...

    Best set of tennis played in 2019

    Dominic needs some credit for his level of play. He would definitely smack around the version of Andre that won RG.

    Best set of tennis played in 2019

    Those sets were more climatic and entertaining given the circumstances. However in terms of shot making and rallying Theim/Rafa was higher. Patrick McEnroe said on Mad Dog radio it was some of the highest quality tennis he’d ever seen.

    Best set of tennis played in 2019

    Tough call but I think I’d pick the first set between Rafa and Theim at RG. Theim was absolutely swinging for the fences in both the first and second sets then appeared to run out of steam. The fact Nadal was able to weather the storm was impressive.

    Medvedev- Facing Djokovic is easier than Nadal

    Let’s hope Novak and Daniil line up against each other in the AO semis. if I was a betting man I would give a slight edge to Djokovic buts it’s close.

    Best points ever played..

    Depth is underrated which makes the AO point even more impressive given Federer hits his second last shot right on the baseline and Nadal still gets it back putting Federer in a somewhat neutral position.

    Best points ever played..

    Yeah that’s a great one. What makes it even more impressive is that it occurred at 15 all and not on a break point.

    Best points ever played..

    There were but this was definitely #1 in terms of shot making

    Best points ever played..

    How high up on the list would this one be? Although he loses the point the squash type shot Fed hits from the back corner is absolutely insane!

    Best string for GE

    its still lingering but better than it was. On top of the racquet change and NG string I’ve also been doing some strengthening exercises.

    Best string for GE

    I am now hitting with Babolat NG at 50 pounds (head gravity) and its defin improved but still not perfect. Should I drop the top 4 crosses 3-4 lbs?

    who 's going to win 2020 AO ?

    Thiem, Tsitsipas and Medvedev all have more than a punchers chance to win. I would put the odds of them winning only slightly below the big three actually.

    Best string for GE

    That an interesting trick. How much lower did you take them down?

    Best string for GE

    I’m probably wasn’t hitting every ball clean in the middle but I wouldn’t call it a shank. I got a Head Gravity last night and it felt much better than the RF97 which I used to use. Hopefully the new racquet along with the string suggestions above fix the problem.

    Best string for GE

    Yup one handed BH however that’s the one shot that doesn’t seem to get bothered when the GE comes on. I find my GE really acts up after playing multiple days in a row.

    Best string for GE

    What would be the best of those three if you had to choose one? NG?

    Best string for GE
