    Played 1st match in a long time. Club tournament

    Against 4.0 50 year old player. He sliced a lot. Won 2 and 3. Easy peasy. But had a cramp 2nd set. Still pulled it out. I am so great still after not playing in so long. I think if I played more than 2x a year it would be double bagels. I had an issue running and bending low for the low down...

    Any new poster to prove level of play before humble brags

    Under 35 years old needs to play jollyroger or topspinshot before claiming they can beat 10 utr players. Over 40 years old they need to beat navigator before claiming 4.5 or 5.0 level. Navigator will even travel to you to deliver the beat down. Thank you. Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk

    Can I get to 4.0 ntrp? In 6 months?

    I've been playing for 10 years. But only 1 time a week while I wait for my kid to get off his lessons, etc... usually I feed him balls on other days. I played about 12 matches total in 10 years. I can beat a 3.5. I think. I'm either just quitting tennis all together when my kid goes off to...

    De-evolution of modern fh. With a twist (Thanks travjam)

    Travjam claims the top atp players are hitting more linear. Less flippy. Closing off stances. Absolutely true. It is happening and top junior coaches are teaching this now. My son has been doing this for 2 years now. Age 15 thru 17. But with a twist. Modern modern??? Out of necessity...

    Match pressure is a real thing. Not possible to get rid of it.

    Pertinent information. Not hearsay and made up stuff from self help books. When I traveled with my son to Florida one year for the usta high performance training we were given the chance to meet and speak a few days with a very renowned sports psychologist that worked with tons of players...

    Adidas barracade for singles and nike cage 3 for doubles

    This is my thought. The cages are slightly lighter so for nimble net play it's good. Barracade has wider base in heels and will contribute to balance and according to my calculations 10mph more pace on ground strokes. For mixed doubles I think stella McCartney barricades sized...

    Do you think Instructors from Bolleteri, Maci, monitor this forum?

    Or do they not care what recreational tennis players think? I searched for the online/youtube coaches here and it seems they have posted a few times and then just disappear. I've not found any posts from the Bolleteri, Maci academy coaches. Is there any posts from them? Like the serve...

    How do you edit a video on android phone?

    I'm playing a friend's kid and want to video it on my Samsung phone. Can I use an app to cut out the dead space? And stitch it back together? (Also I've been moderated in threads so I can't reply in some. Not sure why.)

    Notice he has a very tiny head circumference. The hat he wears has the adjustable band super clinched. He is like a cone head. Lol.

    How to work on volleys? For junior players

    My son is 16 and needs some help getting his volleys and transition to net more solid. He is a big kid. 6'2 and some change. Unlike a lot of the other kids who are grinders he likes to attack and finish at net. For the coaches here (or anyone else that has trained juniors kids) what is a...
