    2hbh detail... open face on backswing?

    I feel your pain. I definitely do not understand - but I do sympathize ... BTW - that is why I did not want to get married - I was afraid that an added weight of a wedding band would adversely affect my forehand......

    2hbh detail... open face on backswing?

    I do not want to filter out _all_ posts by @travlerajm . But could I ask for a feature where I could put on a banned list _any_ post that refers to using a wristband?? I can't take it anymore......

    My Journey to 6.0 Has Ended... Can I Still Improve? (TennisProdigy Video Diary)

    You mean in the sense you would have similar shorts and shirt, and you also be holding a tennis racket, right?

    Well, thank God you added that disclaimer "including but not limited to" otherwise I would think you are a man with no ambitions....

    An 88 mph first serve is more than fast enough to beat you.

    I actually think most TW posters do not play tennis at all........

    Tennis Indoor facility for one month

    pretty much any indoor tennis facility in Chicago is open. Quite a few have very excellent coaches and very good track record with juniors. pm me if you are serious.

    Weighting up the Crossguard of my Sword

    please, that is such a misrepresentation. I'm really sorry you keep doing that - you seem a cool guy overall. We have discussed Stoneage's view on this topic in the past: MgR/I was never incorporated into his app. The calculator was for some time provided on his web site in 2010. Even that...

    Weighting up the Crossguard of my Sword

    We have been over this MgR/I thing many, many times. There's an excellent math-backed analysis of this concept. With a _very_ telling title: https://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/index.php?threads/mgr-i-is-useless.352140/ (in case one is wondering the author of that thread, @stoneage, is the very...

    Weighting up the Crossguard of my Sword

    sure, I can do 'the measurements' with proper tools. What would you want me to measure? sure they do not. Is someone claiming they do? Could you please define what is 'pendulum acceleration' in the context being described here?

    Weighting up the Crossguard of my Sword

    I never said that a heavier racket wouldn't volley better. I do not know. I do not even know how to actually _measure_ if a given racket volleys better. It very well may be that a given player volleys better (whatever that means) with a heavier racket. However if it is so it is not because...

    sooo, the way I read it the courts at 2021 AO are _not_ per ITF regulations.

    I see what you did here. An epic episode...... :)(y)

    sooo, the way I read it the courts at 2021 AO are _not_ per ITF regulations.

    Here are 2021 ITF regulations: section 1 The Court: " No advertising is allowed on the court, net, strap, band, net posts or singles sticks except as provided in Appendix IV. " and Appendix IV: " [paragraphs 1, 2, and 3 talk about what kind of advertising is allowed. And then Paragraph 4...

    Weighting up the Crossguard of my Sword

    The problem with your proposal is that you are asking someone to describe the 'feeling'. Something that cannot be measured. I'm merely saying that _as far as established physics is concerned_ what you are stating is not correct. Now - if you are saying that adding mass to your racket in...

    Good LORD are commentators annoying...

    Tennis commentators must have gone to the same schools that stock market analysists went to. They always know what the right play was _after_ the point is over. Just like those analysists _always_ know what one was to buy or sell _after_ the market closed.

    2H Backhand - Racket Drop Problem

    You are not "super relaxed" :) Even on the shadow swing you are not relaxed. It seems that you are aware of your problem and the more you think about it the more tense, at least in your wrists, you are. I do not know how to help you - if I did I would have fixed my own backhand.... Maybe...

    Weighting up the Crossguard of my Sword

    While the above goes against any physics wrt behavior of an object when you add weight and increase inertia let's just gloss over it and _believe_.

    Weighting up the Crossguard of my Sword

    I mean if that photo doesn't convince someone that adding pounds of weight is beneficial I do not know what will. Anyone can see how the strokes are improved. Granted, you have to _also_ visualize how were the strokes before, and imagine what the it would look in motion, and see where this...

    Weighting up the Crossguard of my Sword

    well, no, because the weight of the cotton they use in those wristbands is too inconsistent so it was impossible to fine tune the setup..... Or make it repeatable. :)

    UTR algorithm

    hmm, that is weird. Clearly can't verify without a name - but I have not seen a single junior UTR ranking varying soo much while playing so many rated matches (assuming those 'rated' matches are against properly ranked UTR players).

    The TT Football Club

    yap, spot on. Not having Virgil (and Gomez, and often Fabinho) had a tremendous domino effect. Players had to be moved to differed positions - which made them weaker at pretty much every one of those positions. The right side of the defense is a sieve these days. Trent Alexander-Arnold was...

    Best items you found at thrift stores (Goodwill)?

    I've measured the beams. The 'mystery' racket is a bit wider all around the hoop compared to PS 6.1 Not by much - but it is wider. The shape, and the position of PWS is the same though indeed.

    yes, exactly, which is why I'm surprised all of them kept using that material for so many years.

    The TT Football Club

    the wheel nuts got loosen months ago when they lost VVD - only now indeed the entire wheel got off the rails.... Exactly. And any time Salah makes a normal good pass rather than trying to be cute - that will be the first time.
