    Bad Reviews for new Adidas Barricade?

    Just saw that TW listed the new Adidas Barricade 18 shoes. I'm pretty sure these are new shoes for 2020? But when you click on "Customer Reviews," there are quite a few reviews already there from 2018/19. And overall, those reviews seem pretty negative. Are these reviews for the correct...

    Yonex Brandography during the same week Wilson announces the new Pro Staff?

    That makes a lot of sense. Thanks for the reply...

    Yonex Brandography during the same week Wilson announces the new Pro Staff?

    Not sure if this is the write place to put this or not... I love TW and the Brandography stuff they create. In fact, I've been looking forward to a Yonex one for a while as it's a brand I've always wanted to learn more about. Also, I think every other Brandography piece they've done has been...

    Can an intermediate player use an "advanced player's racquet"?

    That's a very interesting question. Typically, when I'm playing tennis, it's in a non-competitive situation. Either I'm hitting against a wall trying to improve my stroke, or I'm just rallying with people to be active. I guess this influences how I feel about racquets. I just want a stick...

    Can an intermediate player use an "advanced player's racquet"?

    Good point. Seems like those labels are just marketing jargon now...

    Can an intermediate player use an "advanced player's racquet"?

    I'm a 3.0-3.5 player who's taken some time off from the game, but I'm starting to play more again... I'm looking for a new racquet, and I've always liked racquets on the smaller end (98 sq. in. or less), with good weight, that are head light, and have lots of flex. A racquet that fits this...

    Football is back... Make your predictions here.

    How can you predict the form of a team three games into a new season? With the additions of Torres, Voronin, and Babel, along with the likes of Kuyt, Crouch, Gerrard, and others, I'd say Liverpool have more than enough firepower to compete. And as for form against "better" teams, Liverpool...

    Football is back... Make your predictions here.

    Liverpool will win the league... Liverpool would've already beaten Chelski this season if it weren't for bad officiating.

    Football is back... Make your predictions here.

    Football season starts this week (Aug. 30). Let's keep it simple: Make you prediction about who will win the Super Bowl, and who will be National Champions. If you'd like, you can explain your choice, or just list who you think will be on top. NFL: Steelers-Roethlisberger will have...

    Trying to build a good tennis DVD library...

    I haven't thought of this... The only downloading thing I use is LimeWire, but I mostly use it to find music. I haven't tried lookig for tennis stuff. Is there a lot out there? What other good programs are out there besides LimeWire? Thanks...

    Thanks for the info regarding replay-tennis... Did you order any other matches from them? Was the quality any better? Thanks...

    Trying to build a good tennis DVD library...

    I'm want to start building my own tennis DVD library, which would include, obviously, classic and famous matches. I want to start slow, maybe five or six DVDs, and build from there. Obviously, I'm going to start with those classis Borg-McEnroe Wimbledon matches from the early '80s. Mac is...

    Which spelling do you prefer: "racquet" or "racket"?

    Interesting... Can we say then that this is evidence that "racket" seems to be the choice for those less tennis-obsessed?

    The inspirational Andre Agassi...

    Here's more stuff I found out about Agassi and his charitable works. I copied and pasted this from WikiPedia, so take it for what it's worth: Agassi has participated in many charity organizations and founded the Andre Agassi Charitable Association in 1994, which assists the youth of Las...

    No one else has thoughts on these racquets?...

    The inspirational Andre Agassi...

    I just finished watching (yet again) the Andre Agassi profile on "No Strings," that show on the Tennis Channel. Like I said, I've seen this program several times in the past, and yet I still get blown away by how generous and caring he seems. Honestly, it nearly brought me to tears, it was so...

    Head MicroGel Radical OS vs. Head Liquidmetal Radical OS

    I do like my Ti Radical, but I just feel it's time for a change. Like I said, I'm much more inclined to go with the cheaper Liquidmetal Radical, but haven't heard good things. The MicroGel does seem nice, but it's also the newest, most expensive model. I suppose I could just demo each and...

    Which spelling do you prefer: "racquet" or "racket"?

    Again, thanks for the background info... Honestly, I had no idea about the proper origin of either word, so it's nice to get the info.

    Which spelling do you prefer: "racquet" or "racket"?

    How do you prefer to spell the word, or have it spelled? Personally, I spell it "racquet." I suspect the other spelling was invented out of sheer laziness or ignorance, but I could be totally wrong about that. Just wondering...

    Head MicroGel Radical OS vs. Head Liquidmetal Radical OS

    I am considering a new racquet and trying to decide between the MicroGel Radical OS and the Liquidmetal Radical OS. I currently still hit with the Head Ti Radical OS. Which of these racquets compares most similarly to the Ti Radical OS, or is there not much of a difference? I'm strongly...
