    Interesting factoid

    Just trying to cause a little mischief here among one-handed and two-handed backhand players. ;) But I just thought it'd be interesting to mention that of the eight players currently in the Masters Cup, Federer, Coria, Nalbandian, Ljubicic, Gaudio, Gonzalez, Davydenko, Puerta only three...

    Something Rare

    I was at my university's courts today and I saw our #1 varsity player warming up. He was using a righty 2-handed forehand and a 1-handed backhand. For the forehand, he held the racquet in a full Western grip in his right hand, then added the left hand on the upper part of the handle. He started...

    Were YOU quoted?

    I just thought this would be the right place to post this thing, since this is where we discuss the pro players and where these quotes were taken from. Tennis-X has a periodical special called "BoardWatch," where they track hot topics of conversation. Most recently, they looked at the traffic...

    Could you sticky "Roddick's ankle braces"?

    The question of what brand Andy Roddick wears for ankle braces is asked every month, with a new thread each time. I think it would help save some of the boards' resources if a sticky was created. Could you sticky this thread ( ) to the top of...

    *spoiler* Safin vs. Lopez

    spoilers ahead... I'm watching this match right now. Pretty good tennis, although that line call against Lopez in Safin's 5th service game was atrocious. Even Marat knew it was out, but the umpire didn't overturn the call. Anyway, Lopez leads 1 set to love (6-4).

    Roddick FO observations *spoiler*

    Just some spoiler space... Okay, I've dried off my tears after the Roddick-Acasuso match. ;) While I have seen some improvement in Roddick's gameplay, there was always this sense of inevitability that he'd lose this particular match. Possibly I got this feeling from...

    Whatwrist's role in two-handed backhand

    What's the wrist's role in the two-handed backhand? I already went through some threads looking for a specific answer to this, but couldn't find it. I was wondering what the wrist's role is in the two-handed backhand. I'm very prone to hitting backhands into the net because I don't get under...

    Two-handed serve?

    I was on the tennis courts last Wednesday, and on the next court I saw a left-handed male player hit with his partner. After a while, I saw him toss up the ball to serve--but it was for a righty serve (left foot in front, toss to the right of the body). Then he took his racquet and hit the ball...

    Boris Becker branded racquet?

    I have a friend whose racquet doesn't seem to have a brand name painted on it. However, it has Boris Becker's name on it and the logo "BB" on the buttcap. Other information painted on the racquet includes the words "CTS Thunderstick" and a few numbers I can't quite recall now. It's not a Puma...
