    Why do people with lessons with through the ball more?

    I tried searching for topics about 'moonballing,' 'high balls,' or 'high topspin' on the forums, but found nothing helpful. Everytime I look up a video on youtube, or see a player who has been getting tennis lessons for a while, I notice that their shots are more often nice topspin drives...

    Strings losing tension/breaking too quickly.

    I've just started stringing a few weeks ago, and I am using an Eagnas 300 that I got from my friend. When I get my racket strung at a place like Racket Doctor or some racket store, my strings usually last me around 3 weeks. However, when I strung my racket, it only lasted me 2 weeks, and now...

    What are the benefits of the push/pull stroke?

    After doing searches on the push and pull strokes, I found out that: -the push stroke uses the body to give momentum to the ball and doesn't necessarily involve high racket speed -the pull stroke involves the use of the whole kinetic chain to create high racket head speeds However, what are...

    International Tennis Hall of Fame -- Agassi?

    I don't see Agassi in it. Well I'm looking at wikipedia, and other sites from yahoo don't show Agassi in it too. Shouldn't he be in there? Or is there a rule that only one player can be put in it in a decade, or something like that? -- so Sampras was put in. In my opinion, I think he...

    How do you put on the grommets?

    I just bought grommets recently, and I am happy that everything looked nice. However, I didn't know that putting on grommets was that hard and puzzling. xO I'm 100% sure that I got the correct grommets since it is the same length as my old grommets + the same pattern etc. But when I try to put...

    Bought something from TW.

    I ordered grommets along with two other items. The grommets were supposed to be delivered to TW yesterday and the whole order is supposed to be delivered/on the way to my house. No rush, not mad or anything, just wondering (my first time as a customer). Since maybe TW hasn't received the...

    Buying a grommet from TW. I'm buying a grommet from the nPro, but how many grommets would TW send me? $5 seems a lot for one grommet, but it's possible, and I need around four or six grommets. Plus, is it normal for the grommets at the tie-off points to be...

    Would having a stronger body result in more power?

    What makes your shots more powerful besides technique? Would it be muscle, flexibility? I think it's muscle strength, but for some reason, some people in my school said that stronger muscles only mean less injuries. + I put this on Odds and Ends since I don't think this is really Health...

    Need Feedback on SPPP and Prince Topspin.

    Among the two strings, which one would you choose, and why? I've chosen SPPP over Luxilon because it's cheaper, almost plays the same (or maybe it's just my mind -_-), and a friend of mine has a reel of it to use for stringing. I've been thinking of using Prince Topspin because of wow, the...

    I'm really confused! xD My friend says that when you hit your groundstrokes, you must have full extension of your arm. As in before -------> during --------> after contact. I pretty much believe that too (but my pictures don't xD). However, the school coach tells us to hit our...

    Relaxing your arm and some other help needed.

    Blah. People say that I need to relax my arm more to get more power. I can hit hard, yeah, but not as hard as some people in school. To get that power, they tell me to relax my arm more. But exactly, how do you define a relaxed arm? I don't think I'm muscling the ball all the time, and I...

    HELP! What to do to play around a weak serve?

    What should I do to play around a weak serve? =S I'm chokemaster on matches, so my serve is like xO.... It's attackable by many people, so I want to find a way to overcome that. The other me can only slice, and it's still attackable. But this other me has very decent groundstrokes.

    How Do You Put On Those String Savers??

    :evil: O.o They keep on falling off, not even getting under the string.... Btw, do string savers actually give you more spin? How do they affect your play? HOW DO YOU PUT THEM ON? :confused: If there was a cry smiley, I'd use it.
