    New Prince Beast/Warrior PJ?

    I randomly saw Shuai Peng playing the USOpen qualies and saw that she was swinging a new Prince PJ. Is this the new Beast or Warrior PJ, which she previously used? Or a totally new line?

    Qiang Wang's new "Yunlop" paintjob is quite possibly the worst I've ever seen.

    Dunlop just signed a deal with Qiang Wang, China's new #1 singles player, but it's blatantly obvious that there's still a Yonex VCORE SV98 under that Dunlop CX200 paintjob. Here she is at Indian Wells with her "Yunlop," where you can obviously see it has the pronounced triangular VCORE throat...

    Are Barricades discontinued?

    Yonex pro tour racquet bags?

    Anyone else notice that the pro tour bags that Yonex gives its pro players are completely different from the retail version? I bought mine from here, but was disappointed to see it only has one molded side compartment, whereas all the pros have two molded side compartments. Anyone know where I...

    Babolat Bags 2017

    I've only seen the Pure Strike Bags (nice, but there's too much white that easily shows dirt), and I'm curious to see the Aero and Drive bags. Does anyone have pics?

    Anyone else see Radwanska's racquet break off completely on a routine backhand?

    I was watching the Agnieska Radwanska - Kimiko Date third set and saw Radwanska's racquet break completely off the handle on a backhand return. The racquet head broke off completely at the top of the handle....I've never seen that before! I'm wondering if that is something inherent in Cortex...

    Ancic: Done?

    Any new developments with Mario Ancic? I know he is a lawyer now, and that he gave a guest lecture at Harvard Law this past spring semester. Among the things he spoke about at Harvard: law in pro sports, ATP legal issues, and endorsement contracts (surprise, surprise). I don't think his head...

    Joachim Johansson comeback

    I thought he retired from all the shoulder surgeries he's had? He's a wildcard in the main draw of the Malaysian Open, and he draws Lleyton Hewitt in the first round.

    Ankle Brace Questions - Please help

    Pros who have never switched racquet brands?

    Reading a thread about so many pros switching brands made me think that there are only a handful of "lifers." Can anyone name any current (or former) top pros that have always been loyal to the same racquet brand since the junior circuit? I'll start it off: -Hingis and Yonex -Kournikova...

    Could Dunlop sue Prince?

    for infringment? Clearly, James Blake is not using a Prince, but his "Prince Experimental" is hardly a Prince. The frame has Prince Logos and a Butt Cap, but it clearly is not a Prince engineered frame. Even the Blake camp admits that it's still his old frame underneath the markings. It's...

    O3 Tour doubts?

    I've just now hit with the O3 tour Mid (funny their 95" is mid). It looked cool, but the 'wow' factor when playing with it was not there. My shots lacked the 'buttery' feel and it felt too powerful for me, almost like a trampoline (it was strung at 60#). My normal playing racquet is the...

    All pros have some kind of rituals to keep them sane. Some are bounce the ball twice, some are unique. Do you know of any unique rituals? I've caught little things when I watch tennis, so I'll start it off... Sharapova... always brushes her left ear, then her right ear before...
