    Head Gravity

    My MP has it on top (if we are talking about the same piece). Both of my Pros it isn't visible on.

    Technifibre Triax 1.28 is the truth (Golf Elbow recovery)

    Outdoors here in the UK. It's in on my list for the "summer".

    Technifibre Triax 1.28 is the truth (Golf Elbow recovery)

    I've been searching for the GE holy grail all this year. I've not tried Triax, but I have tried Multifeel, Velocity, X-one biphase, cream, Ghostwire and many others. I'm currently on Isospeed Pro. It's as good as anything else I've tried. Cheap, pleasant to string and plays pretty well. I'd...

    Stretching routine?

    I guess it depends where you are tight? For me I do a combo of different yoga moves that I add to and alter as I find exercises that target either my weaknesses or where I have tightness. I like this channel, https://youtube.com/c/Uprighthealth And the readystate is good as well...

    Head Gravity Pro club!

    Another weird thing with mine yesterday. I'm guessing that the battery completely drained over lockdown. I had a hell of a time getting it to switch back on. I'd plug it in to the charger and it would switch on. Unplug it and it would go red straight away. Whilst charging it reported a full...

    Head Gravity

    First hit for a couple of hours tonight, rotating in the MP and the 2 Pros for 30 minutes a time. The MP is certainly a much less demanding racquet. I found I could hit powerfully with it on both sides and the easier access to spin was addictive. I found that I could hit nice, loopy, cross...

    Head Gravity

    Thanks. I'm planning on trying some gut hybrids next year. Playing outdoors at this time of year in the UK probably isn't the best time to try it. Definitely on my list from April onwards when things are a bit drier.

    Head Gravity

    I've finally allowed myself to get excited about the resumption of tennis in the UK. Strung up my rackets yesterday ready for next week. I've now got the MP in the bag as well as a pair of Pros, so I've decided to do a bit of an experiment. I normally string hybrids of YPTP or similar with...

    Cross tension less than main ....

    I actually find the opposite of this works for me (perhaps only string dependent, I will test further to see). I've been stringing hybrids for most of this year. Nearly always with Cream or Ghostwire in the crosses. For my last string jobs I did one racquet with YPTP/Cream at 55M/52X and one...

    POLL: What is the lifespan of your poly strings?

    I've been suffering from arm problems this year and I've become very string sensitive. I find that performance for me falls off a cliff at around the 8 hour mark (mixture of matches and drills). This is pretty much for any hybrid that I've been trying recently of softer co-polys. YPTP and...

    Diego Maradona dies aged 60

    If any of you have any interest in him then I can recommend this book: Check this out at Amazon Angels With Dirty Faces: The Footballing History of Argentina https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1409126943/ref=cm_sw_r_u_apa_fabt1_n6RVFb7B03AA8 Not just about him, but about the principle of the 'pibe'...

    Poll: How many more RGs for the Nadal?

    I'm going to say 1. I think he wants to retire to the yacht and leave when he knows that he's still on top. I think he's going to time it to perfection and not sour the legacy by going on too long.

    ATP Finals 2020 final: Dominic Thiem (3) vs. Daniil Medvedev (4)

    At least neither of then can lose without being broken now. That was coming for a couple of service games now. To be fair to Timmy! he's not been moving quite as well since his tumble. A few more grimaces

    ATP Finals 2020 final: Dominic Thiem (3) vs. Daniil Medvedev (4)

    I liked Thiem hitting himself there. Realising it hurt and then doing it again a bit more gently.

    ATP Finals 2020 final: Dominic Thiem (3) vs. Daniil Medvedev (4)

    I'm hoping this goes to a third. A shame if it's pretty much decided by that brain fart in the first set from 40-0 up. Apart from that it's been incredibly even

    Let's be honest, Djokovic was screwed worst this season

    I think all the pros who skate around financial viability at the lower end of the Pro tour have all been screwed harder. Probably at least a couple of hundred. But I will be starting a telethon for Novak. Possibly with Bannon in charge of the fundraising appeal.

    Nothing has changed: Dont be fooled

    I would be shocked if the Big 3 manage to get more than 3 more slams between them. I also think that Rafa will retire relatively soon. One more FO? Possibly 2.

    2020 ATP Finals SF: Rafael Nadal vs. Daniil Medvedev

    4 on the trot. Lovely stuff from Rafa. Though he's definitely been lucky at times.

    Djokovic has an endurance problem!

    https://www.bbc.com/sport/amp/54872855 Well, Grigor doesn't agree. There's also many stories about the effects of long covid in the press. But they're obviously all lies from the MSM and their stooges in medicine and research.

    Djokovic has an endurance problem!

    He was fantastic at the ATP cup. At one stage he was talking about going unbeaten for the whole (weird) year. Also Thiem has now been top-10 for at least 4 years. Playing in his third slam final. Hardly a mug. I'm more inclined to think it's age. However if Dimitrov has said that he thinks...

    Djokovic has an endurance problem!

    Exactly! He's just got 10% worse in the same time frame. Conspiracy theorists are everywhere.

    ATP finals SF 2020: Novak Djokovic vs Dominic Thiem

    Both are a mental thing. Perhaps if you sort one, the other will at the same time.

    ATP finals SF 2020: Novak Djokovic vs Dominic Thiem

    I'm not talking about his second serves (I'm too polite to mention it). His return of serves on weak second serves. He pushes them back in. Not aggressive at all.

    Zed? Who pushes second serves back in to play on RoS? He's got the potentially biggest game. We don't often see it though.

    ATP finals SF 2020: Novak Djokovic vs Dominic Thiem

    BBC have Castle and Henman. Castle is a donkey. Keeps on spouting about the Aussie Open. I'm very unsure as to his qualifications on virus control.

    Prediction: Thiem will never win another title

    Thiem was lucky that he was playing Zverev to get the monkey off his back in major finals. If Djoker hadn't got himself disqualified, I genuinely don't think Timmy! would have beaten him. Even Murray managed to beat Zverev a few weeks before that at Cincy. Essentially on one leg. Also I...
