    Knee problem- diagnosis?

    Last year I got runner's knee and did something to the outside of my knee too. I did this running too much, 8 mile runs back to back days that kinda thing. I had to rest for 8 months, and now I'm back exercising, playing tennis etc. But I still have a problem in the knee. When jogging...

    Will Nadal be seeded 5 for Wimbledon?

    I think the All England Club will make an exception and find a way to seed him 4. He's a two-time Wimbledon champion for goodness' sakes. Even though we are expecting him to be 5 I think we may be surprised tomorrow.

    Well done Jamie Baker

    Brilliant work from the Scot to make the main draw at the Aussie Open. He has been drawn against Nadal-slayer Lucas Rosol, so hopefully there will be a bit of interest around a match that is definitely winnable for him! He has fought back from an illness a few years back to get here, and so...

    How long will Novak's reign as world no.1 last?

    The re-emergence of Del Potro, Rafa to come back fitter and fresher, Federer still weaving magic, Murray the hard court specialist, is Novak's run a streak of form or the announcement of his true self's arrival? How long can he hold on to the ranking and how can it be wrested from him? And by who?

    Cross RDX500MP with RDS003 and you have...?

    Hey I cannot get enough power with the RDX500MP but love everything else about it. It just feels like all the weight is in the handle, making it hard to put the ball away, and I'm not big on customising racquets. The other racquet I've hit a lot with is the Wilson 95 inch, the latest one red and...

    Might replace my RDX500MPs....

    I was told that these racquets were purist paradise, with spin, control, feel, an aesthete's delight. They really are, I love hitting with them. I was also told they were underpowered and that against heavy hitters I'd find myself being pushed back and hitting the ball short, opening myself up...
