    Babolat & Yonex bags. Opinions?

    I've had my same Volkl bag since 1946 and decided to get something new. I've have narrowed it down to a couple of bags, a Babolat and Yonex. Just wondering what experience you guys have had with these in terms in durability (zippers, stitching etc) mainly. Many thanks

    Federer string setup 2003/2004

    Watching Fed vs Agassi Tour Finals 2003. Love how he played back then. Every shot so aggressive and precise. Just wondering if he was playing gut mains/ALU crosses then yet? Full bed gut? FB poly? Interested to know.

    Swiatek...countdown to racquet change

    Still no stencil going into the final of a major. Prince is too dumb or broke to get her under contract. What racquet will she be using in 2 months...Babolat, Head, Yonex or Wilson? I'm going with Head or Babolat.

    Nike Vapor X laces too short

    Have had millions of Nikes over the years and never had a prob with the laces. Currently have some Vapor X that I love but the laces are way too short. Nike "customer service" isn't helping and won't send longer laces. Anyone else having a problem with short laces on the Vapor X?
