    What is your favourite racquet design of all time?

    So what would it be?

    I'm starting a racquet company - how would you design your perfect racquet?

    I have (excitingly) successfully pitched for investment to start a tenniswear, accessories and racquet brand based in London and the investor wants to start prototyping and production relatively promptly. A little info - we are doing simple but high quality active and casualwear wardrobe...

    Critique my ground game

    I'm getting back into tennis after a few years out and have my first tournament in a decade in 2 weeks. Here's me hitting with a 6.5 NRTP player, I don't have a rating of any sort as I haven't played in ages. Any and all feedback welcome!

    Make my 134mph serve better.

    It's not a clickbait title, I promise. I've got a reputation at my tennis club for having an amusingly fast serve but I'm alas only serving at about 20% consistency, on a good day. The obvious advice I've had over the years is 'slow the bloody thing down', but I'm a) stubborn and b) sure there...

    I've ordered 3 Prostaff 90s, they are due in the post tomorrow - I've got that kid in a candy store feeling but I do need some guidance on strings. Does anybody else here use them? I know a lot of people have migrated to the RF97. I use the BlX 90s at the moment (cracked, hence new...

    Hey guys! I've got a fairly fast serve at the moment, I had it recorded at 123mph at wimbledon last year on the serving machine.. but I want it to be able to get past 130mph! I think its something to do with the legs.. This is what my technique is like now...

    Hey guys, just wanted some critique on my serve - i'm serving at about the 115-120 mark atm, fastest I've ever had officially recorded was 121mph.. Buttt my technique is giving me quite serious back pain, and I think I might be able to get a bit more power out of it, as I think I'm just using...

    I've decided I'm going to get a tattoo, I want you guys to help me design it.

    Ok, so i've decided I wanted to get a tattoo. I'm gonna get it just below the bottom of my neck , and I don't want it to be too big. As I like tennis so much, I guess I want a tattoo related to tennis in some way. Put forward your ideas, much appreciated. Stefano

    Had a quick knock with them aswell, they feel good (save the naff factory strings). Got an amazing deal too, they were only £50 ($100) each. Brand new. Anyone else played with these?

    When do you think the next grand slam will be won by someone who isn't Federer/Nadal?

    I'm not sure whether this topic has been brought up yet, but it sprung to mind while reading a thread about some of the other young guns. When do you think federer/nadal are gonna not win a slam? I'm gonna say possibly wimbledon next year if federer is injured, if not then the us open...

    Any players from London here?

    I'm taking about the London in England, so you know. Wouldn't mind finding new people to play with, I play about a 6.2 standard at a guess, i've beaten a 5.2 before, i'm a solid hitter. I go all over London most days, but would prefer north. Cheers in advance for your replies, Stefano

    My serve

    Ok I thought as i've got a new video camera phone from japan, i'd try it out doing something useful, such as recording my serve. I think its ok as it is, but i'm just wondering what you guys think. In these videos i made slight alterations to the technique, with the last video being my preferred...

    The best player never to get to the final of a grand slam?

    I think Henman would be the main contender for this award? Possibly taking the title for the one of the unluckiest aswell. Any others people can think of?

    The Ego problems of some people on this board...

    Please guys.. so many threads are ruined/go off topic by people trying to defend themselves when it isn't really neccesary, can we just eat humble pie once in a while and avoid these arguements. Also please, we know you can use big pretentious, pedantic, and petulant words (you get the idea)...

    Henman v Srichaphan

    Henman just won the first set 7-6, and is 1-0 in the second. I would really like him to get back to form and start winning some matches. Though i do like Srichaphan too... love the splits thingy he does.

    I was hoping he was going to hit form in the IndY open, but i was wrong... "Marat Safin slumped to a 6-1 6-4 defeat at the hands of world number 512 Wesley Whitehouse of South Africa at the ATP Indianapolis Open." - BBC news I love the was Safin plays... but this is a massive blow to his...

    How are you involved with tennis? Any claims to fame?

    I'm just curious as to what TW board members do in relation to tennis (i.e coach, string, play pro, work in tennis etc.) and if you've got any claim to fame with anything to do with tennis. I know this post is most probably in the wrong place, but oh well... For me, I do
