    Collins strings and racquet?

    100% agreed, that was why I pointed out the 2 piece grommet channel, plus the throat insert. I worked in a stringing shop in 2014-2016 when the GRMP was the "new radical" on the block and they were selling a lot, so I recognized it. No misunderstandings needed :)

    Collins strings and racquet?

    Yonex is the stringing sponsor for the AO as far as I know. (Got messages out to *sources* to confirm) Definitely an old radical MP which you can tell by the 2-piece grommet strip around crosses 13-14 in the above photo #4 Edit: sources confirm, it's just a Yonex stringing room sticker that...

    I just started listening to this one, made by a friend and old teammate. Some good pro match discussion and tennis interest stories so far. http://boredgoat.libsyn.com/

    The Brotherhood of the Traveling Radical

    You'd be surprised what middle aged hackers are following on the Gram. :D I was talking to a few mid-40s members of my club last month when they brought out the smartphones to discuss prominent WTA instagram-only "tennis players".

    US Open 2018 R2. Andy "Muzziah" Murray vs Fernando "Fiasco" Verdasco

    So far, I think # of momentum swings > 19.5 is the winning answer. (pat self on back)

    Which Strings do you guys think should be a must for a Pro Shop ?

    Would you though? If someone knows exactly what they want, it's very likely they are bringing their own string in my experience. And if that's in high enough demand for MANY players, I will work with them to make it available in store. And if someone DOESN'T know what they want, I provide ten...

    Which Strings do you guys think should be a must for a Pro Shop ?

    I have always believed in doing only a few things in ones business, but doing them incredibly well. On this particular topic, I recall stringing in a local tennis shop for 2 years as a part time job, and experiencing first hand the difficulties of carrying too much. When a regular club player...

    Nike Vapor X

    I've been using the Vx for the past 3 weeks of play on clay only, while I'm on my last pair of V9.5s for hard court. No issues at all with the X. They feel and fit great, even going with the same size as the 9.5s. I actually like the feel of the tongue better on the X, it's thicker and more...

    Gustavo Kuerten: ATP Forehand?

    Nope. But who cares really? He won 3 RG championships with his natural forehand, something I have not managed to do last time I checked. [emoji41] Sent from my Moto G (5) using Tapatalk

    Felix A A on training with Federer (video)

    That I don't know. Federer is better in French than me so I'm sure he understands FAA. He did interviews in Montreal in French afaik and understood them well. Sent from my Moto G (5) using Tapatalk

    Felix A A on training with Federer (video)

    The words are for the most part the same, but the accent is hugely different. I haven't lived in quebec for any part of my life so despite living in french-speaking switzerland and travelling to france often, I only understand about 35% of this interview.

    I'm surprised the GPMP is better durability wise than the Wilsons. I've heard so many horror stories of those frames snapping in half on the machines. Sent from my Moto G (5) using Tapatalk

    Some pretty insane breakage there.... I've never seen that kind of destruction, even in my few years working as a stringer, except on frames that were abused. How often did you string? How have you found the GPMP compares in durability? Anyways back to the string topic - when did you switch to...

    What exactly does happen for you when you "wear out" a racquet? I'm assuming this is based on feeling and not physical breakdown after a while. For the record I know about the theory of the graphite wearing our due to repeated stress on the carbon/epoxy matrix but I've never been able to...

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    Got an update for y'all on my side. I've been happily married to my match made in heaven, the Vcore Xi98 with a bunch of silicone and lead additives for about 2 years, but she's started to scuff, scrape, and I am worried what could ever take her place... I spoke to my racquet guru (pro...

    AO 2018 4th Round - [17] Kyrgios vs [3] Dimitrov

    The thing about this tension confusion is, Nick is a professional and he'd know that the stringers would label every racquet. Like, it's not his coaches' job to do that - so why would he be shouting at them? I'm more inclined to believe that his coaches either A) forgot to bring his racquets in...

    AO 2018 4th Round - [17] Kyrgios vs [3] Dimitrov

    Yeah depending on the player. Nishikori is known for having 1 or 2 racquets done a kg lower and 1 a kg higher. He also runs them in from court all the time. Sent from my Moto G (5) using Tapatalk
