    Doping in Tennis

    I realise this could be a controversial thread so hopefully it doesn't get out of hand. What are everyone's opinions as to whether many tennis players have used performance enhancing drugs? I feel that tennis is generally clean but from what I gather, the testing regime in tennis isn't very...

    Tennis and Muscle Imbalances

    Does anyone know how pro players generally workout in order to even out the non-dominant side? I've noticed from playing tennis from a young age (and probably not doing as much work off-court as I should be) that my left lat is noticeable smaller and my shoulders don't seem to be the same...

    Green bits on Nadal's Aero Pro

    WHat is the green sticker in the throat of Nadal's APD??? ALso what i noticed is that it looks thinner than normal APD's and that the beam at the side seems slightly more squarish.

    Why is Duralst so cheap??

    I have just come back from France where i bought a 120m reel off Babolat Duralast 16. I have heard it is a very good string but i was amazed by the price. I bought 120m for 21 Euros when 1 set of hurricane costs somewhere around 15 Euros. Why is it so cheap and is it actually a good string (i...

    Roddick outburst

    "Roddick could scarcely have been more visibly impatient, arriving so soon after the previous match was over that the names of those earlier combatants were still on the scoreboard when he and Mayer began knocking up.
