    Is Osaka the greatest Asian tennis player ever?

    I hope she avoids sushi. That has to be one of the more dangerous foods to eat on tour. James Blake once said he ate Subway while traveling because it was predictable food.

    Yonex Ezone AI98 successor?

    The Ai98 was unique in that it was flexible. It works for Osaka because she can generate her own power and the flex helps with control.

    Novak ia 7 match wins away from becoming GOAT

    Yup, I can't see Djoko winning RG 2021 if Nadal is healthy. Djoko does very well at AO because it's fast and he likes it that way. Nadal is the opposite and likes RG because it's slow and bouncy. Each surface compliments their game perfectly. Djoko does very well at AO, but Nadal does extremely...

    Is Osaka the greatest Asian tennis player ever?

    I don't think Osaka considers herself Asian. I think she identifies as black. Japanese is only her nationality, but racially she seems to identify more as being black. Kind of like Tiger Woods. I've never heard him talk about his Asian side.

    Is Serena on the path to becoming the greatest tennis player of all time?

    Men's tennis at slams is like a 9 inning major league game. Women's tennis at slams is like a 7 inning softball game.

    Tsitsipas predicts Medvedev to win AO final

    Med was on fire. He was hitting second serve aces. If he serves that way, Djoko won't be able to poach any returns.

    Anyone else feeling like it will just be a dissapointing Djokovic straight sets final

    If there was any player who could give Djokovid a run for his money it would be Medvedev. Even if Nadal would have gotten through Tsits and Med, he ultimately would have lost to Djoko. This is like Darth Vader vs Darth Maul.

    Prince Phantom 97P Review / Discussion

    I'm seeing the word flex a lot in this thread which piques my interest. Does the 97P flex at the throat? That's where I like to feel the frame bend.

    Who do you want to win..Tsitsipas or Medvedev

    Whomever has a better shot at beating Djoko. Tsits is a streaky player while Med can play relentlessly at the same level, but not as high as Tsits peak streaks.

    Muchova I love you!!!

    That's true. If you look at any of the official WTA photos of the players, they don't look like themselves IRL (no makeup). Only player that I notice wears makeup on the court is Serena. Osaka doesn't even look like Osaka.

    Will Australian Open Use Cardboard Fans Along With The Fake Applause?

    The fake applause is only heard at home. Players don't actually hear it. If they could put a big tarp over the seats. They could "green screen" fake fans for viewers at home too.

    There's actually nothing inherently wrong with an underarm serve in tennis

    Tennis used to be a gentleman's game and no underarm serving is an unspoken rule. Times have changed. Can Wimbledon ban that shot for their tournament? I can't see that shot being seen as more distasteful than at the WC.

    Why Has Djoker Shaved His Chest?

    I was playing tennis once during a hot summer and noticed a man with a dark jacket on playing a few courts down from me and I thought it was weird because it was so hot that day. When I took a closer look, only did I notice that it wasn't a jacket he was wearing, he was actually shirtless.

    All Electronic line calling. Consensus so far?

    That True Video reference from a previous post is referring to the instant replay system used in some Asia Pacific tournaments. It uses high speed cameras fixed on the lines. It can't be used for real-time calling because it took time to queue the footage. I'm sure eventually it can be...

    All Electronic line calling. Consensus so far?

    I hope electronic line calling spreads to the other tournaments. It minimizes drama and perceived bias. I also think towel service should be banned. Before the pandemic, it was getting ridiculous with how some tournaments were pampering players.

    Next Gen can't grow a beard

    Why hasn't anyone posted a pic of De Minaur's Hitler-like mustache. The opposite would be Benoit Pare and his hipster beard.

    Prince Official - Racquets

    I'm also interested. I'm not big on spin and don't like 16x18/19 on midplus frames. If the 97P with a 16x18 has a small sweet spot then the pattern must be really tight. Which leads me to another question. Why even have a MP hoop with such a "tight" open pattern? The outer part of the hoop is...

    Racquets with Very Flexible Hoops?

    Wilson Hyper Pro Staff 7.1 Zone. The hoop was very flexible. The throat was also very flexible. Because both was very flexible it kind of felt like hitting with a wire coat hanger. But if you like dwell time and the feeling of the frame deform, the HPS 7.1 Zone is a top contender. I still have a...

    New Pro Kennex Black Ace series 2020

    I'm hoping the new BA Pro will have a smaller head than the 2020 BA. Perhaps 97" with an open 18x20 and the same 55/56 RA. That would be my perfect racquet. It really sucks how there's nothing out now that matches those specs. Prince is closest, but they always do 16x18 with higher RA.

    Who is the strongest tennis nation right now (ATP)?

    That's not Victor. It looks like Aaron Paul.

    At what point would differences in stiffness RA be noticed

    If you like all your frames to have very close specs then I'll take your two sub 60 RA frames off of you. Those are gems in the rough.

    Djokovic makes demands to Tiley re player conditions

    Love Novak's new moniker, Djokovid. Is it from him being a tool or from previously having COVID or both?

    TT 100P Appreciation Thread

    I haven't found a multi that was spin friendly and especially on the TT 100P being medium powered with tight pattern, nothing short of poly would help. Compared to my original Phantom 93P which I use my go to multi (Xcel 17) which has just as tight of a string pattern on a small head, but...

    TT 100P Appreciation Thread

    Who's still playing with the TT 100P? Mine is collecting dust because it's too hard to generate spin with using multi. This frame was made for poly. I only discovered that after buying it and I'm not a poly player.

    Small sweet spot but really really sweet?

    The original 93P's sweet spot is about the size of a baseball, but when you can find it, it is sweet. There's power and control. I don't know if the newer revisions play like though.
