    Spinfire 2 ball machine - any users?

    I tried another ball machine only once, many years ago, and it didn't really worked. something jammed after some 15 minutes or so. so, can't really tell you about hands on experience from real life how Spinfire would compare vs other ball machines

    Spinfire 2 ball machine - any users?

    can you guys provide a numerical description? like Slinger claims that their machine reaches 3000 RPM what could I expect from SpinFire with say +10 (top spin), -10 (slice), +5, -5?

    Does Thiem have a decent chance of beating Nadal at RG?

    as he lost several past encounters, it means he is approaching his 6th or 7th chance :cool:

    Move from 16x19 to 18x20 racquet?

    while PA 16x19 makes a kick serve easier, 18x20 doesn't make it impossible. if you can learn to generate that needed RHS, it will be there. All the USO SF use 18x20 frames. Thiem is using 18x20 and I think he delivers a lot of spin on every shot when he wants to.

    Driver Charged Over 'Napping While Speeding'

    some cars require driver to keep hands on the steering wheel, otherwise they stop. some cars detect if the driver is tired, probably deriving something from hands on the steering wheel and suggest you to take a brake.

    depends. those who worship Djokodal will tell you that it was boring af. if you compare it to the above mentioned OG video, well, can't say that it is much better when Ivanisevic literally forgets how to serve on MP. let's just agree that athletes are as well people, they have emotions, their...

    Nadal new tactics

    Novak needs to get to those tiebreaks first. We remember how he performed on a simple overhead, when he had a possibility to get a break up in the deciding set. let's not run ahead of the train. the event is around the corner, and we will see how the guys perform there. simply because of what...

    how is Nadal performance at the tournament related to how big / important the event is? you probably won't argue that RG or Wimbledon or USO are Chalenger or Futures type of tournaments, or will you?

    Nadal new tactics

    are you saying that in the crunch we can expect from Novak: - DF on matchpoint - hitting easy overheads into the net - touching the net - hitting linesmen in the throat - throwing rackets carelessly with risk of injury for people around

    How many of you customize your racquets with leadtape or handle weights?

    I tried to customize the Gravity MP, as for my taste it lacks stability for serious incoming speed, but I failed miserably, and moved on to a tad heavier and stable enough in stock form frame: Gravity Tour. Other than this, I replaced the standard grip with leather grip on the Tour, so it is a...

    Spinfire 2 ball machine - any users?

    well, the spin rate of course slows down the forward momentum. say, if you fix a certain pace level, a ball that has less RPMs will be reaching the baseline with higher speed (velocity), based on my feeling, not measured by the radar gun or anything else. pace alone is certainly top level...

    “Rafa decided to stay [at home and practice] and that surely gives him more advantage,” - Djokovic

    are you suggesting that Novak lost on purpose to Thiem in 2019? to preserve his easy victory in their last match at a clay slam?

    “Rafa decided to stay [at home and practice] and that surely gives him more advantage,” - Djokovic

    well, it's not like Thiem and Novak will be playing presure-less. they will have to fight their own demons too, especially Novak if they meet Rafa
