    Jack Sock, can he be the Great American Hope?

    OK, he has a crazy FH with lots of moving bits but he kills the shot. He is posting good results this year and playing top guys close. Can he make top 10? Dare I even ask, can he win a slam 2 or 3 years down the road? I think he is the best US prospect. He has to keep his head on...

    Trigger Grip on 2HBH or Hammer Grip

    Hi, Djokovic, Nadal, Foginini and Halep all seem to extend the index finger on their non-dominate (top) hand on their 2 HBH while Murray does not. I do not and use more of Murray hammer grip with the index finger tucked in. The trigger grip is more like a forehand grip where almost everyone...

    Cincy Court Speed Makes Good Tennis

    OK, the court speed at Cincy is what the entire ATP and WTA should be aiming for. You could actually attack the net and have some success while still having lots of baseline rallies. Also, when the players like Federer and Monfils play at a fast level, it makes it much more fun to watch. WTA...

    NRG2 just went to $249 reel from $215. X1 BiPhase, Bab Excel, and all the other top grade multis are in the $260-$300+ range. Why the big increases? Increases are far steeper than current inflation rate which is under 2% annually for last 5 years.

    50/50 Stringing ?Do top Half 1st OK?

    If I use 50/50 technique on the crosses is it OK to start in the middle of the crosses and do the top half 1st. I would string all the way to the top and tie off and then start back in the middle crosses and work down to tie off the bottom half. I want to do it this way to simplify the...

    Can Pros Attack Net Successfully?

    Anyone notice that Monfils, Fish and Dodig had very good success playing serve and volley and attacking the net against Djoko and Nadal on summer hardcourts? I personally think some pros need to attack the net more. I believe Federer would have beaten Tsonga at Wimby if he had attacked in...
