    She used to be one of my favourites to watch on the WTA, but now all of a sudden she is not even ranked in the top 100 any more. What happened to her?

    Radwanska fires coach

    Source: this guy has been coaching her since January, and she has been having quite some success since then, winning the biggest title of her life, and she said "he did not pass" I am wondering what it would take for him to "pass"

    Wozzy ditches her new coach

    Only 2 months in and he is gone. Apparently her father is way too dominant in their relationship for him to allow any coach to overrule his coaching tactics. Source:;_ylt=AkM2Avh0S5dARLNYKaWTjdw4v7YF?slug=afp-tennis_den_wozniacki_coach_20120201

    Nadal has a potential tough draw at Wimbly

    Raonic, Delpo, Simon, Fish, Berdych, Murray, Gasquet, Wawrinka and Roddick are all there in his half. I think it is safe to say that Federer has the easier half this time :twisted:

    Ethical Dilemma

    The captain of my team asked me to play with some new self rated player he recruited for our 4.0 team. The captain was smirking the whole time and was kind of fishy as he was saying this so I knew something was up. So, I go ahead and book a court and play this guy..... He must have been...

    Kick Serve into the net

    I stopped playing tennis for a few weeks because school and work interrupted my tennis time, and now I am very frequently hitting my second serve (kick serve) into the net chord, and I cannot figure out why its happening. Am I not hitting hit ball hard enough? Is my grip slipping? Its so...

    Dawn of a New Era: Muravic

    From the beginning of this AO I definitely felt a change in the dynamics of the mens game. Djok and Murray stepped up their game, while Federer and Nadal seemd to have fallen back. While I really do hope to get a few more years of dominance out of Fed and Nadal, I can't help but feel that the...

    Disguising a slice serve

    When I serve a slice serve, I usually toss the ball more towards my right (I am a righty) and observant players are clearly able to see what serve is going to be comming at them once they see the toss veer off to the right. Do you uys have any tips to disguise the slice serve? It is a great...

    I just played against a 5.0

    I am a mediocre 4.0 at best, and that was the most fun match I ever played in my life. The guy ran me around, left, right, backwards, forwards. I ran more in that match than I did any any match I have played in my life. The power and spin on his strokes were like nothing I have ever...

    I lost my foreharnd

    My forehand was my bread and butter shot, but as of 2 days ago, I am not able to hit a forehand to save my life! My backhand is still nice, I am serving great, volleying better than ever, but my forehand disappeared! Has this happened to anyone? Where you just wake up one day and you forget...

    Tennis & Golfer's elbow and racquet weight

    Tennis is just bad news for the elbow! Using a light racquet can help cause tennis elbow, and I just read today that using a heavy racquet contributes to Golfer's elbow: Racket sports. Excessive topspin can hurt your elbow. Using a racket that's too small, heavy or tightly strung also can...

    Poly's stringable with dropweight?

Today I decided to string my racquet with my usual set up that I used to get done at my stringers Poly mains syn crosses. I set my dropweight at 52lbs and tried to...

    Cross guage/tension question

    I currently get my racquets strung with poly mains and syn crosses with the same tension(52lbs) and guage(17). I want to keep my mains at 17guage and 52lbs, but would changing tension and guage on my crosses provide any benefit to ocmfort and playability?

    Why restring Polys?

    I switched from syn gut to polys this year, and poly's just don't break or move, so my stringbed still looks as if I just had the racquet strung. I also don't really feel a difference in the way the stringbed behaves (maybe it is because the reduction in performance is very gradual), so I can't...

    Is Stosur Henin's Nadal?

    Watching Henin v Stosur today reminded me a lot of Fed vs Nadal. Justine 1 handed back hand getting constantly attacked by Stosur's topspin forehand. It was painful to watch :(
