    Pro Staff 97 Revelation

    I have a two hander and my son has a one hander. It works equal both ways.

    Pro Staff 97 Revelation

    The cv or countervail version is more muted in feel. For some people who have arm issues they believe it dampens the shock more thus making playing with the racket easier on their arm. My son and I like the more lively crisp feel of the non countervail version. My son had some older pro Staff 97...

    Pro Staff 97 Revelation

    My son loved the RF97. Unfortunately he only lasted one set with it. He hated the PS97cv and loved the PS97. He felt the CV was dead feeling like an old racket.

    Is the USTA system hurting American tennis?

    Maybe that is what we starting to see it in my state. Level 4 tournaments that are weak are being turned into level 5 tournaments the following year. Then many drop away since it is hard to make money doing a level 5.

    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...

    Any pros switch from OHBH to 2HBH during pro career?

    The OHBH gives players variety. Most of them have a better slice and a better backhand volley. The downside is that it does not do well as well on high balls. Also, it is probably not the best choice for short people. The two hander is probably a better choice for most players. There are some...

    Osaka specs

    I find poly/gut to be cheaper. The guy last so much longer. Multi only lasts 2 days or so.

    Rafa a lock to pass Federer in consecutive weeks in the top-10

    Nadal has a tremendous game and intensity. Unfortunately those are the same qualities that promote injuries. He is lucky he has not had a career ending injury. Most likely he has prevented this with being in tremendous shape. Nadal’s games style allows him to peak above Federer at certain times...

    Nike is slipping...

    I cannot wear Nike shirts to work anymore because people “label” you. I do not want to be on either side at work.

    Serena Williams

    Serena did this to herself. Once again her true self comes out. She is one of the greatest women to ever play tennis. She is also one of the worst role model who has played tennis. It is a shame.

    1 Handed Backhand Resurgence

    I was just thinking of the one hander resurgence myself.

    New Racquet? Currently Using Wilson SixOne95, Thinking Pure Strike or Pro Staff 97

    If you do not need the extra comfort get the Pro Staff 97 not the Pro Staff 97 Countervail. The CV version feels dead. It also feels not as stiff and has less power. At least that is my experience.

    Andy Murray accuses Verdasco of cheating by illegal coaching

    Andy may have a point but it is not the way to win fans. I am not a fan of Andy Murray but I recognize him as one of the elite four. He is one of the top competitors of all time.i think he is frustrated with his results post surgery. Then things like this are more frustrating. Everyone know hip...

    Prostaff 97 CV switch?

    I like the non-cv because it was stiff like the RF97. I think for someone who really likes the RF97 but needs something a touch lighter the non-cv is a great option. I can understand if you have arm issues and need to move to the cv version for comfort too.

    What does Djokovic do against Nadal which the rest of the tour seemingly can’t?

    The high bouncer to his backhand does not affect him as much as others.

    Lucky me! Nice find.....

    Rep from Boast told me they are getting new merchandise in on he 25th. Maybe they are still going. Now they have a count down on the website.

    Fed cincy outfit

    I agree that Nike overpriced Federer outfits. Unfortunately so far Uniqlo has not produced anything I would want to buy. All one color is bad.

    Fed cincy outfit

    New outfit sucks! It is plain and boring. No welded seams or classy design.

    Its a digrace, its an scandal, its a outrage!

    They could have at least put it on ESPN 3 so you could stream it to the TV.

    How Many Prince Racquets at Wimbledon?

    Respectfully I have never seen anyone play with Dunlop in the last 10 years. My older son played 200 USTA matches and my younger son has played 600 USTA matches. Neither have ever had an opponent who had Dunlop rackets. Maybe Dunlop will make a comeback. I think it is hard competing against...
