    Any 5.0 Players Switch From Players Frame to Babolat and Get Even Better?

    I tail-weighted my first ever frame (super light, super thick Wilson K Rush FX) with some weight at the tip to make it nicely polarized and it’s a great frame to play around with. I still use Tour G 330 most of the time but after a three hour clay court session, I feel like boiled cr@p. After...

    If you can handle a heavier racquet, is there any benefit to a lighter frame?

    If you’re after the cause of the pain, you’ll have to detect what changed/changes (string, tension, weather conditions, your stroke path when you tire, etc...). If you’re after benefits of heavier, head light setup vs lighter one, you’ll have to identify what is it that’s missing, what you’re...

    If you can handle a heavier racquet, is there any benefit to a lighter frame?

    Another factor is weight distribution and how it compliments ones playing style. Rafa most certainly could swing a much heavier frame, it just wouldn’t help him play better. His style is better suited to lighter, more head heavy setups rather than traditional players specs.

    The TT Football Club

    European competitions you mean Champions league? Because British clubs started to take European League seriously only after the winner was awarded a UCL spot. Before that a weekend match against Burnley was a priority (and considering attendance at, say, Manchester City UCL matches... it still...

    What Racquet Plays Like a 90 Square Inch Babolat Pure Drive

    If you want a commanding racquet with easy access to spin and power while still having specs close to a players racquet, Angell TC95 is one of your best bets. Burn 95 is an intriguing racquet, too.

    Needed lead for both, in TC95 more because of feel than stability.

    'New' used racket?

    I think it’s some sort of brain teaser. Not sure if I want to tease my brain that much, though.

    Ditto, same frame (Tour version).

    Artengo shoes and apparel?

    I like their white shorts and their tennis socks are nice, too. Bought from Decathlon, on par with recent Nike dri-fit shorts while costing fraction of the price (I still have some Federer Nike woven shorts from 8 years ago which are one level up in quality but it’s at least one level up from...

    I'm sure I have. Too many options, too little time...using what's left of summer for outdoor sports, not much time for telly afterwards.

    Of course yes. Laver Cup is good, I was in Prague a year ago and witnessed Roger and Rafa team up. Didn't care for all the marketing but that's what Laver Cup is mostly about, I guess. Haven't seen a single point of this years edition, though...

    He played doubles with Nenad Zimonjic in Davis Cup as well as on ATP Tour so he has experience. He’s just not that good at doubles, apparently.

    Hello Pacific, anyone home?

    Pacific bought the rights from Fischer - an Austrian company. Yet you mean Pacific, I guess. They moved the company from Germany to New Zealand...hence Pacific, most probably.

    Looking for a 16 x 20 racquet - suggestions welcome!

    That baby needs a proper game even coming from Tour G330. It is faster through the air, though.

    Nothing. I like “how can you play with this thing” comments.

    Rackets you hated playing good with ?

    Angell TC95 63RA 18x20. Played exceptionally well with it results wise, ended up with a frame much harder to use yet I like its feel and the way I play with it much better.

    What is the market strategy of racquet manufacturers that have 0 pros using their racquets?

    Wow...just wow. There are many ways to market your product in this social media era without doing sponsorship deals. Might even be cheaper in the long run.

    From Yonex 95 D to something more easy to use... But which one?

    I read a lot of good things about the new 330 Vcore 97 when I was looking for a potential contingency plan for my Tour G330.

    I’m just curious. It’s kind of hard to dedicate a lot of time to reading tennis forums and buying/trading/trying out tennis frames/strings when you’re more passionate about, for example, restoring vintage motorbikes. Even if you’d have unlimited funds, there’s only 24 hrs in a day... I like...

    House could very easily have been someone like Mads Mikkelsens Hannibal Lecter. He’s several levels ahead of most people regarding intelligence and perception so it’s quite surprising he’s willing to keep his manipulation within tolerable sociopathic boundaries. Even then he’s doing it on...

    It’s a great show to binge watch as you don’t need to pay attention all the time as the structure of the plot is almost always the same, i.e. what happens when (same goes for a show like Elementary). Houses interaction with the world is what makes it so entertaining (and sometimes hard to...

    For me it kinda goes fast downhill after House ends up at a psychiatric ward (even though those early episodes of season 6 are quite good). First two season are really exceptional.

    Great show for sure, that’s why I’ve watched it two times (so far...). Too bad Netflix took it off in my country, I’ll have to buy it on DVDs or something.

    That’s why Foreman’s error with the bra lady is Houses error, too, as he’s his mentor. The Antarctica case is even more curious. If it’s warm enough to undress into your undies, it’s warm enough to take your socks off for 5 minutes. House is literally a Sherlock Holmes of medicine (221B...

    Not sure about medical faculties in US but in Europe, physical examination along with proper anamnesis (everybody lies, of course) is a cornerstone of diagnosis, essential and non negotiable. If House doesn’t want to speak/touch his patients then his understudies should do it for him.

    There’s this one episode with hospital lockdown and missing baby when Cuddy has her “House” moment by diagnosing a nurse with pilomotor seizure...but yes, most of the times she has to play it safe as a diagnostic antithesis to House.
