    ATP's current ranking system according to Dirk Hordorff

    Hi all, Just came across Dirk Hordorff's statement about the ATP's current ranking. Of course you may or may not agree with him but at least he says what a lot of us -- players, fans, some media maybe -- think to ourselves. It also questions the state of the ATP tour after what they call "the...

    To all my Swedish fellow tennis fans...

    ... I need your help...! Hi all, I've just came across that video : They're talking about that old cocaine story in which Mats was involved. That day in 1996 when the news became public, I remember that my own world, as a young dude, had collapsed. This is the first time that I have seen a...

    Another great interview with Ivan

    Hi folks, Just came across this : I was not a Lendl fan back in the days, I think maybe because he was one of my idol's main rival (I was young… ;)) but the more I listen to him, the more I like him. Fascinating interview, as always with Mr Lendl. The channel also uploaded the full video...

    Guillermo Vilas ain't doing too good, I heard…

    Hi all, Read earlier today that the great Guillermo Vilas is not very well. I was thinking the other day that I hadn't seen him on or off-court since long and today I read that he apparently suffers from Alzheimer, which I had absolutely no idea. According to the article, his state had...

    If you could re-live a match but change its end…

    Hi all, I wrote something in a different thread and it gave me this idea : imagine that you can re-live a match - any match - and change its end. Which match(es) would it be and why? Here what I wrote : The first one would be the US Open 88 final with Ivan winning this one against Mats...

    Tricky question : how can 2 identical racquets play completely different?

    Hi racquet experts, I have a tricky question for you guys and if someone can enlighten my lantern, I would be more than grateful as the whole story pissed me off! I'll try to make it brief but I'll need to explain two-three things first to make it clear, hopefully : I have been testing a...

    What is Mats playing with these days?

    Hi all, Funnily first time it happens to me I have to say but… I can't identify the brand of the racket Mats is using on this picture. I've searched for Solinco or Gamma or PowerAngle rackets but I couldn't match so far. He was using something even different at this year's MasterS at the Royal...

    First Babolat racquets…?

    Hi everyone, I had a debate with friends this afternoon about where the very FIRST Babolat racquets were produced. I have never been quite sure about it - not a question I asked to myself I have to say - but I assume they were made in China, or at least, Taiwan. I read the story of Pro Kennex...

    Hard to say goodbye to my old stick :(

    Hi! Is it just me or… Today I packed in their old Fischer bag 7 of my 8 Fischer Pro Classic 98 which I had been playing with since summer 1999. 11 years, that's not bad for a stick! Hard to say how much I loved (and STILL love) this racket. I decided to switch to the M Pro 98 because it is...

    Wilander VS Lendl, Budapest 29.10.2010

    Hi all, Have you seen any video of the Wilander / Lendl match in Budapest on October 29th ? I did, and I thought both of them were hitting well. Mats is playing really great this year I think (noticed the new Donnay racket he uses? Looks great!!), serving well and making few mistakes, moving...

    Fischer Pro Classic 98 paintjob

    Hi all, For those who are interested in racquets paintjob, here's what a friend and I made on two of my Fischer Pro Classic 98. The original Fischer paint had so poor quality that we decided to repaint the frames. That's been a pretty long process but we were very pleased with the final...
