What amazed me was the power of Tursunov's forehand and his shot selection. It was like...

    I use a leather replacemant grip with a Babolat vs overgrip. In addition, I am in the process of adding lead at the 3 and 9 o clock positions on the frame. The raquet needs more mass imo, as booming serves are difficult to generate without adding more weight into the head. I also experienced...
