    The gut/poly thread

    Hi all Im getting back into tennis after a 4 year break. I use a Donnay Pro One 97 I used to string it with Babolat Team VS/MSV co-focus or Mosquito bite at 55/52 Is this still a good combo? I kind of need it to last a fair while so looking for crosses that wont cut into the gut Cheers!

    Did Umpire stop Wawrinka for winning a 1st slam ? (AO 2013)

    He was not out of challenges I think he trusted Nole and the umpire. Huge mistake. Anyway, he might not have been able to serve out the match anyway.

    Did Umpire stop Wawrinka for winning a 1st slam ? (AO 2013)

    A player should never make the call if the ball is in our out. That is up to the linesman and umpire. That's a basic rule of pro tennis that Nole broke, and Stan must have trusted him... This is why people don't like Nole...Myself included

    The biggest thing Federer can do to improve right now...

    he needs to be more aggressive and try to end points quicker. I noticed against Hewitt he was happy to just rally, when there were short balls begging to be hit for winners down the line using his forehand.

    Did Umpire stop Wawrinka for winning a 1st slam ? (AO 2013)

    What I noticed when watching the match live, (and again on the replay) was not the bad call by the linesman or the umpire, it was the FACT that Nole signalled the ball out and pointed to the mark! Cheat! I was disgusted by this, and it obviously messed with the umpire's head, and probably...

    Struggling with tennis - mentally and physically

    If you have changed your technique and you are hitting the ball long, then you need to hit with more spin, or you need to change your racquet/strings/tension or both... If you think you might hit long, this causes you to hold back on your stroke, and you hit more long balls because your not...

    The Perfect Mod for the Wilson BLXPS90

    the best mod I made for the PS90 was to switch to a Donnay Pro One 97. I think the 90 improved my strokes and timing, but it lost me a few close matches when my game was a little off. Am playing much better with the more forgiving Donnay.

    Help with decision: PS 85 or BLX PS 90

    I was using the PS90 blx for about 6 months... I found I was losing matches if I wasn't performing at my best, and was a little tired that day. If you are super fit, strong and have great footwork and technique, sure get the 90. if you are a player that plays comps and has your bad days...

    Why do things change overnight?

    I served 10 aces and 10 double faults in a set on Tuesday night. Go figure. It's why the sport is so challenging, you're all alone with no team-mates to cover for you.
