    I stand by Roger: Darth Felderer's journey towards slam majority!

    Hopefully Fed's slam count will reach majority before he retires!

    Looking for full poly with spin and low launch angle

    So I'm used to playing with full poly at around 60 lbs on a Babolat APD. Sometimes it feels great, but sometimes the launch angle is way too high. In a full poly setup (I like the spin), 1) what strings and 2) what main/cross tension differential should I use? Ideal setup for me: poly in the...

    Got my very first racketlon in a few days, and I need a fresh string job. I play with the Babolat APD at 59 lbs and like Luxilon, RPM Blast and Volkl Cyclone. Which of these polys is the best in your opinion? 1) MSV Focus Hex 17 2) Kirschbaum Pro Line No. II 16L 3) Kirschbaum Spiky...

    Help needed for syn gut/poly hybrid

    Hello, I'm a 5.0ish and I use an APD with full poly at around 58 pounds. I hit with quite a bit of spin. I'd like to try a syn gut mains/poly crosses hybrid to give my arm a rest and get more feel. I still want a spinny setup though. Any suggestion that will be somewhat durable? How about...

    Looking for the best mid-priced poly

    Hello, I'm a 5.0-5.5 player and want a good poly, but Luxilon and Babolat RPM blast are a bit expensive. Looking for good tension maintenance, feel, and spin. 16L or 17 gauge preferably, because I'm a string breaker. I liked Tourna big hitter silver rough 17 for about 30 minutes, then I started...

    Backing up and transferring my iTunes library

    I'd like to back up my iTunes library, which consists mostly of songs that I own on CD and that I transferred manually on iTunes. I'd eventually like to be able to transfer these files from the backup device to another computer (probably a PC laptop). Should I use an iPod (thinking of the new...

    LED TV problems/questions

    I just bought a 32'' LED 720p Panasonic Viera TV (model TC-L32X5), and frankly I'm not too impressed so far. My setup: DVD player and basic cable. Two issues (with both cable and DVDs): 1) When the image moves a lot (when the camera moves, so to speak), the image often blurs a little. This...

    Men's Wimbledon 2012 final match point

    First I wanna say that I'm a HUGE Federer fan. After seeing the match point again, my initial impression is confirmed: Murray's passing shot did seem either in or very close. He definitely could have challenged. Anyone has a replay of some sort (slow motion perhaps, or different angle?) to put...

    Annoying high-pitched sound during Williams-Radwanska final

    There is a subtle, repetitive high-pitched sound on the ESPN/TSN feed for the women's Wimby final, it's annoying as hell... Made sure it wasn't my TV or something at my place by changing the channel or muting, and it's not, it's definitely the feed. Anyone else noticed this?

    Fed's chance at regaining the #1 spot if he loses Sunday

    Title says it all. We all know he'll win, but if he does lose, how quickly could he regain the top spot and what specific results from both him and Novak in the next few tournaments would be needed to achieve it? Of course getting back the top spot means Fed would beat Sampras' record for the...

    Gluten intolerance (coeliac disease) and cramps

    I recently learned that I was gluten intolerant (blood test, then gastroscopy). I'm a new man since changing my diet a month ago. The thing is, gluten intolerance is supposedly associated with muscle cramps, which I had a lot in tennis and squash tournaments for the last 20 years. Always thought...

    Gauge and tension (for poly)

    I hate to irritate everybody with yet another gauge VS tension thread, but there seems to be quite a bit of confusion on this issue. I read many threads about the topic, and it seems a slight majority of people think that tension should be lowered a little when using a thinner gauge. What do you...

    Looking for a string...

    I'm a NTRP 5.0 who hits with a lot off spin and breaks a lot of strings. Syn gut usually lasts me under an hour. I have recently played with poly in my Babolat APDGT: RPM is good but a little expensive, same for Luxilon poly, and a bit disappointed by Babolat PHT (not as much bite, not as much...

    Adidas shoe size

Anybody has an idea of the Adidas Barricade or Bercuda's fit? TW states that it fits true to size, but I want to double check with...

    Looking for tennis shorts

    My waist is about 32-33 (usually a medium), and I'm looking for narrow and long tennis shorts (the baggy fit is not for me). Not looking for basketball shorts long, but long enough not to look like Agassi... Any suggestions that I can find on Tennis Warehouse? Hoping to pay 45$ or less. Thanks.

    Knee tendinitis advice?

    I have pain right under my right kneecap. It's not THAT painful, but it keeps me from moving properly in tennis and especially in squash. Not sure how it happened, but it seems like I overdid a few stationary bike sessions (sprints with a lot of tension). I'm led to believe that it's a...

    Should longer racquets be allowed?

    I think it's an heresy that these long body racquets even exist. It gives an unfair advantage, even though it's a bit more difficult to control. I'd really like to read people's opinions on this.
