    Is the USTA system hurting American tennis?

    Is the system created by the USTA hurting American tennis? The USTA has a system in place with too many tournaments. The USTA recommends playing multiple sports and not focusing on just tennis at an early age even though their own system encourages it. The problem is that players have to play...

    Does TW have a retail location in Georgia?

    I live in Georgia. I have noticed that when I order stuff I am being charge tax. Honestly, I really hate that. I buy all of my tennis stuff from TW. I am about to order two Pro Staff 97 rackets and some string. If I order from TW it will cost $30 more than from a competitor. As much as I like TW...

    Is Wilson Discontinuing the Pro Staff 97?

    The new Wilson catalog only lists the Pro Staff Countervail 97. There is no mention of the Pro Staff 97. My son says the Pro Staff 97 Countervail feels more dead than his 4 year old Pro Staff 97 rackets.

    PS97 vs Blade 98

    Is there any reason to go with one over the other? My understanding is that the PS97 has more power and the Blade 98 has more control. I know the Blade is more head heavy. My son has used the PS97 for the last 4 years. He is 15 and 6’3”.

    Do any college or juniors play with the RF97?

    My son played with it for about 8 months and loved it. We just thought it might be a little too heavy. He seemed to fade in long matches.

    The kick serve and string tension

    Does it make a big difference? My son just turned 15 years old is still growing at 6'2"+ and he has a big serve and a good kicker with lots of spin. Unfortunately he hits a lot of the second serves long. He has an RF97 strung with gut/poly at 54/50. According to the playsight court he gets as...

    Can we say the one handed back hand is not dead?

    3 of the last 4 grand slams have been one by players with one handed backhands. 3 of the last 4 masters 1000 events that were held on hard courts have been won by players with a one handed backhand. I really thought I would never see players with the one hander having this much success again. It...

    How does racket mass affect spin?

    I know a heavier racket has more mass. I also know that a racket with more mass when swung at a speed the same as a lower mass racket will have more power. That is if all other things such as string patter, length of the racket, racket composition, and stiffness are the same. How does a higher...

    RF97 VS PS97 Question

    My son has both of these rackets. He finds it much easier to get topspin on the RF97 and keep the ball in than on the PS97. Why do you think that is?

    How do you fix "hitting too much topspin"

    My son just turned 15. We just go back from the 16 and under sectional championships. He is hitting too much topspin. It is to the point that he is swinging really hard but not getting the pace that he once got because he is hitting too much topspin plus his shots are landing short. I know he...
