    What is going on on Stakhovsky's twitter?

    I noticed some commotion going on with Stakhovsky on Twitter. His page is filled with people bashing him about something related to women, probably women tennis players. From what I can make out it seems he made a tweet about women tennis players (prize money?) and it got published by the...

    Ever seen the result of a match in a dream?

    Have you ever seen the result of a pro tennis match in your dream before it happened? And better yet, has it come true? I had such a dream a few nights ago. In my dream, Roger Federer loses to Ernests Gulbis in the 3rd round of this year's French Open. In my dream I also remember...

    Blake playing Tallahassee Challenger

    The writing is on the wall here. Maybe he's just stubborn, but what is Blake expecting from his tennis in the coming months? I'm a fan of Blake, but really, when it gets to this point I'd rather him go out with memories of his fiery '06 days firmly intact.

    polyfibre tcs - woah

    tried this string out yesterday in a hybrid with gosen og sheep micro in the crosses (strung at 56 lb. for the tcs (1.20 mm), 54 for the gosen). all i can say is "wow." polyfibre suggests stringing 2 to 4 pounds higher than a normal poly and i can see why. it feels more like a synthetic...

    beware the fearhand

    just when u think brad gilbert cant get any worse. in his recent interview on espn, not only does he predict nadal to win, but he kept calling him ralph and referred to his forehand as a "fearhand." just more evidence that brad does not belong in front of a camera.

    need a string like pro hurricane tour, but w/ more comfort

    i used to use a full job of pro hurricane in my n6.1 95 16x18 until it tore my elbow to shreads. i started using a full job of pro hurricane tour at 54 lbs. about a month ago and i love it. i think it plays better than the regular pro hurricane. the problem is, i have this feeling it might...

    looking for a new racquet

    im currently using an nsix-one 95 16x18, before that an n5. i love the extra power and touch of the n6.1 when im chasing down shots or need that perfect lob or passing shot, but when i go on the offensive and start hitting harder, i find that i hit out w/ the n6.1 much more often than the n5...

    i just got in an asian nsix-one 95 today. i thought the weight would be the only difference from the regular 1, but, man, was i wrong. i first noticed the the grip seemed longer than my other n6.1, so when i compared them, this asian 1 was longer, probably around 27.25 in. or so, even when...

    im not sure about this 1

    http://cgi.e***.com/ws/****ISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7245704866 i find it strange that the racquet has a leather grip, unlike other n6.1 95's. i questioned him about it asking if he may have mistaken it for an n6.1 tour 90, but he said the racquet says 95. i also find it weird that it comes...
