    WTB: Blade 93 (Amplifeel Version) L3

    Hi, I'm looking to buy up to two Blade 93's in 4 3/8th's grip. The condition that I'm looking for are frames without any cracks, paintchips, or scratches. I don't mind bumper wear, so essentially 8.0+/10. You can contact me at and I'm located in SoCal for shipping purposes.

    Smooth transaction with Tmano

    Had a nice back and forth, providing me with anything I wanted to know, ending up in me buying two frames from him. The frames were slightly rated higher than they were, but that was fine since he sold them at a nice price. Would do business again!

    Need critiquing and advise.

    Hey everyone, I'm getting back into tennis and this is a set I played earlier today. I ended up losing 4-6 in the video and 0-6 after I stopped recording. I'm the guy in black shirt and white shorts. I never played competitively other than high school division 5, and am entirely self taught. I...

    ProKennex Black Ace

    Found one at a thrift store today for 10 bucks. Not sure which one it is. It looks like a 90 sq racquet, has a very thin beam, and gold and red accents on black. Is it the 93 or 90 version?

    The Handbook of Tennis

    So I found this book, "The Handbook of Tennis," by Paul Douglas, in a Goodwill a few months ago. I only skimmed through it, but was curious. Would it still be considered a feasible reference or guide to learn or improve your tennis game? I think it focuses on a traditional play style, being that...

    Wanted: Stringing Machine (CA)

    Looking for a reliable stringing machine that is in good condition. Preferably would only want to deal in California because I'm located in the Inland Empire area, and that would save shipping costs. I also am on a limited budget, so no top notch machines, unless you would want to do do an...

    May you guys critique/ help me on my serve? Part 3

    So the reason why I've created a 'part' thread every time is because I've either made changes to my serve or because I've taken time off, and this time it's both. Here's a link to the previous thread in case you guys would like to compare and contrast my form from before...

    A faster serve is generally better?

    I'm fully aware that having a big serve does not mean the serve is good. Combining spin, angle, and variety may make the serve better. As well as having a tactical plan before and following a serve. But what I'm thinking is, that if a player is able to generate more pace on their serve, as well...

    Generating pace on a floating, slow paced, shot with a 1hbh

    Ah yes, I have this dilemma whereas it's difficult to generate a lot of pace on my backhand side if the shot received is a floater (such as if my opponent would chip back a fast serve). I see multiple options if a shot like that were to occur: run around the ball and hit with my forehand, slice...

    What kind of exercise is Tennis?

    So since I have been going to the gym, my sister let me have her heart rate monitor. And it's all adjusted to my body now, and I usually burn about 600-800 calories in the time I'm at the gym. I think it's accurate, but can anyone confirm this? Or can a heart rate monitor not have an accurate...

    Tennis shorts as swim shorts?

    Hey guys, I recently acquired my first Nike Gladiator shorts, and I was wondering if they can dub as swim shorts! Well I was wondering that because I got the Dimitrov Purple and Orange shorts for $15 used, and they look like swim shorts. I have swim shorts, but they're really baggy, and it would...

    Ghost Serve?

    Recently got a new frame, and I'm out here at the park practicing serves again. I served a few, and it felt much easier compared to my 350 sw K88's lol. On one serve particular, it felt like I didn't make contact at all, and my racquet just went through air, but the serve was good and fast...

    Specific racquet color and hues for paint

    I often use thick nail polish to fill in relatively small scratches or paint chips on a frame. It works pretty well because it's rather thick, but I'm going to purchase a used vcore tour g soon, and it has a paint chip at around 10 or 2 o' clock of the frame whereas the Orange, black, and silver...

    Is this a shoulder rotator cuff injury?

    I think it started hurting when I was practicing my serves, and I was not properly warmed up. I mostly armed the ball, and like a genius, I continued to practice; despite having a slight pain in my shoulder. Two weeks later, this pain has yet to degrade, and it only hurts whenever I try to...

    What is Monfil's Play Style?

    Defensive baseliner? I've seen him play aggressive and rather flat/sidespin, but it seems like his shots of lately have been defensive, and to have relatively low pace.
