    Stringing Machine Cart?

    I've got an Alpha Revo 4000 Crank stringing machine, but it's taking up a bit of space on my table. It's not exactly light, so having to lift it and move it everytime I want to use it is a bit of a hassle. Ideally, I'd like to be able to keep it on a mobile cart so I just kid of wheel it out...

    Djokovic's kindness and Nadal's water bottles: my life as a tennis ballboy

    Interesting little article about a young man who used to ballboy for some of the bigger events on the tour back in 2009-2011. https://sports.yahoo.com/djokovic-apos-kindness-nadal-apos-151742574.html

    How to determine court speed?

    Had an interesting thought about the court speed. You always hear about the courts playing quicker or slower, etc. But I'm curious as to how you tell based on playing on the court. I play quite a bit, but normally at the same rotation of courts, but usually I don't think much about the speed of...

    Really TW?

    I don't understand why in this section anytime a thread gets into a political debate or discusses a "hot button" issue it gets closed or deleted... What's the point of having an Odds & Ends section if we can't take about other **** not related to tennis? Granted some posts can be quite ignorant...

    Unpredictable

    Not sure where to post this, but I stumbled across this music video by Olly Murs and Louisa Johnson, and I thought it was amusing! I like how they use tennis as sort of an analogy for the ups and downs of an amorous relationship. That was totally Johnny Mac's voice in the beginning of the video...

    Nike planning a special shirt for Rafa Nadal winning 10 French Opens?

    Didn't see a thread or anything talking about this, so I figured I'd post a thread in the apparel section. Nike released those 18 shirts for Federer when he won the Australian Open a few months ago, and the shirts had all of his slams won printed on them. I'm just curious if Nike might be...

    Murray and Djokovic fun fact

    I was thinking about this as Stan Wawrinka nearly closed the match out by bageling Murray in the final set, but instead settled for a breadstick, and then remembering Thiem bageled Djokovic in the last set of their quarterfinal match. However, and I'm not sure this has ever happened before -...

    Get the Win of Your Life/Career and Then Lose Your Next Match

    In piggybacking off of @stringertom 's thread: Win a title and then lose your next match, I've noticed quite a number of players get the win of their lives against a top ranked player and then can't back it up, losing to a player very below the caliber of player they beat the day or two before...

    Kyrgios and his Mercurial Antics Strike Again

    It's bad enough that he lost rather soundly to Kevin Anderson yesterday, but he smashed one of his racquets to pieces on the Perrier ad sign right next to him. He's also seen on his phone as he's walking off the court. And apparently, he asked fans for a beer during his match as well - probably...

    Anyone giving anything up for Lent?

    Everyone seems to be giving something up for Lent, maybe America can give up Donald Trump. ;) But seriously, what, if anything are you guys giving up?

    Novak's Told Off By His Wife, After She Forgets To Turn Off The Camera

    Apparently, he shot a little 12ish minute video of his practice for his fans. Towards the end, in the last 30 seconds or so, he grabs the phone from Jelena to thank his fans, however, when he hands it back to her, she wasn't too pleased about it. She asks where his manners are, and seems...

    TW Reusable Bags

    I was hoping to order a couple reusable bags with my order, as I love to use these when I'm at the grocery store, but I can't seem to find them on the site. Hopefully you're just currently out of stock, and these aren't discontinued. Would love to get an ETA if possible on when they might be...

    Ana Ivanovic Set to Reveal "Big" News

    Hmm, this seems to only add more fuel to the retirement fire talk that has circulated the past few months, in regards to Ana Ivanovic and her disappointingly woeful 2016 campaign that saw her slip to #63 in the world...

    Once again - Djokovic's tough draw evaporates in 2 days

    Okay this had to made given how ridiculously easy his U.S. Open draw has now become. Essentially two walkovers, Cilic loses earlier in the day. What's next? Murray and Nadal going out?
