    New Sampras vs Ginepri videos

    Samps looks good but it kinda looks like Ginepri took a little off his forehands and floated them more.

    If Rios gave 100%, he'd still be an ATP pro. Think about it.

    Australian Open 2007

    Who the hell says that Nadal is the favorite? Federer is the defending champion and the winner of 3 slams in 2006 plus the Masters Cup. No one comes close to him right now on hard court, it's plain and simple. The only slam I would put Nadal as the perennial favorite would be Roland Garros given...

    He can address the crowd of any Grand Slam he wins.

    Hewitt's speed

    Grosjean isn't a big server, but he does have an effective kick serve. Watch him live sometime.

    Moving from a Pure "Control"

    I used to play with a Pure Control and I think a great step up from that racket would be a ncode 95, very similar but with more heft and stability and volleys a hell lot better than the Pure Controls. As for myself, I opted for something extreme and started to use the Prestige Classics. Don't...

    Quite obvious Sampras would dominate Federer on non-clay surfaces

    It's hard to really pinpoint Agassi's prime, but if you go and look at some previous matches between Agassi and Federer in recent slams, you would see that Agassi has gotten more off him than most other people. And that's an Agassi that's older and slower. Agassi wouldn't own Federer in his...

    Roddicks volley

    Yeah it's still ugly but it working better now. I personally think Roddick's volleys from his match with Grosjean in Madrid were more impressive.

    What is with the Croat serve?

    Hey I wouldn't mind having a "Croat Serve".

    Roddick could have a little more luck.

    it seemed like only a matter of time before Tursunov would break him at the end of that long 5th set. Tursunov was getting mostly easy holds while pressuring Roddick's service game. Big ups to Roddick for coming back from 2 sets down on clay. However part of what gets you into the top 10 is that...

    Gasquet is cruising!

    Gasquet is a streaky player, we should wait until he plays players of a higher caliber in USO before hyping him up. edit: I'm not saying isn't a good player because he is, but it remains to be seen if he can compete with the likes of Fed/Nadal in this tourney. He's lived up to some of the hype...

    New Tecnifibres

    Technifibre rackets have an identity crisis with me, I can hardly tell the different between the rackets until I look at the specs.

    Racquet Recommendations?

    try the n6.1 in the 95 head size, its a good racket that appeals to wide ranges of playing styles as long as you have the skills for it. try a racket in the 95-98 head size range, jumping from an oversize to a 90 is setting yourself up for failure.

    Quick question! Did the 1st gen Pure Drive have the Woofer system?

    Nope. No Woofer system with original ones.

    PC600 Grip Problem

    Thanks for the response PrestigeClassic (fitting you would post something about this racket haha). I have tried wrapping the Wilson Pro Overgrip tightly but very little overlap but this doesnt seem to help. I didnt think of balance as an issue until you brought it up. I don't think of myself as...

    Does the PC600 plays easier than PS85 ?

    Bigserver1: I think it would an interesting stick for you to try. It'd be easier to pick up a PC600 for you than a PS 85. PC600, like many others have said is a more versatile stick. I'm not saying PS 85 is strictly a serve and volley stick, but for your game, I think the PC600 would be a better...

    PC600 Grip Problem

    I started playing with the PC600 recently and absolutely loved it. At first, I really enjoyed playing with it (stock leather grip) without an overgrip, I felt the bevels well and this definitely helped my one handed backhand. However eventually I was forced to apply an overgrip due to blisters...
