    Nike tennis shoes with dynamic fit collar?

    First things first, apologies at the lack of pics- posting from an ipad. Right, when looking at the promo pictures of the Wimbledon kits, I saw Serena's shoes had an inbuilt sock running up from the shoe. This is a similar design as used in the new batch of World Cup football boots- the...

I open the voting to you, the merry/disgruntled, experts of Talk Tennis to suggest your winner for each category, and maybe an honourable mention for...

    BLX Blade 98 compared to Aerostorm GT

    Currently using the Aerostorm GT, but the time has come to replace my current frames (1 cracked, other on its way out). Torn between simply replacing them with the same, or switching. I'm intrigued by the BLX blade 98. Spec-wise they seem similar, although slightly different balance and weight...

    My 'Talentless' ID 2K11's

    Got my ID's through last week (haven't had internet, so haven't been able to post), and very impressed. Quality seems surprisingly good, the box they came in was awesome, and they actually look better than they did when designing them online (i.e. be aware that the colours differ slightly. As...

    Nadal's top and the humidity

    Anyone watching the Rafa/ Tomic match? Rafa is absolutely dripping with sweat- looks like he's been swimming. He's got through at least 3 shirts in 2 and abit sets, and has just got onto his 4th, which is the 1st one that had been left out to dry. Apparently it's not even that humid (Tomic...

    How good were Nike Vapor IV's?

    Title says it all really. I used to have a pair and liked them, but wore them a few months ago when they were completely destroyed, which has kinda soured my memory of them. My V's are dying quickly and that leaves me with one pair of Vi's but have found a pair of IV's dead cheap. As good as i...

    iPhone 4 users- does it need a case?

    Random thread, i know, but ho hum. I'm getting an iPhone tomorrow and was wondering if it actually needs a protective case? The old ones definitely did due to the plastic back being so scratch-prone, but since the new one is scratch-resistant glass on the front and back, do i really need one...

    Nike Rush and Crush jacket Folding(!) advice

    Just got the white spring rush and crush jacket and was wondering if there is any particular method to fold it into its pocket, or do you literally just cram it in anyway possible? I'm intrigued by the material of it- it's ridiculously light, truly treading the line between 'lightweight' and...

    10 days (in counting) fitness push

    I'm off to Spain on the 20th to play for a week, and am looking for advice on any potential ways to get that extra level of fitness in before i go. Annoyingly the last month or so has been completely dominated by my exams, so haven't been able to do anywhere near as much as i'd like. On average...

    Cheaper Pro Hurricane Tour?

    Basically, as a poor student, i was just wondering if there is anything out there as similar as possible to PHT, but sightly cheaper? I've managed to find it and the new RPM quite cheap on the bay, but its not the easiest way of doing things. Any suggestions? As much as i love tennis, i'd...

    A more solid Aero Storm

    Keeping this simple. Looking to replace my Aero Storms, and having demo'd a blx 95, realised how i like the solid feel of it, but am slightly concerned the blx may be abit too hardcore in the long run. What should i being looking at then, as a spin friendly racket, thats not overly hardcore...

    Yet another 'What racket?' thread- Aero storm to...

    Heyah, i'll try and make this as informative as i can, and not just ask a load of vague questions expecting miracle answers, but all opinions are welcome! I'm currently playing with Aerostorms (which i like), with about 10grams of lead on at 12 o'clock. I'm 6,2ish and athletic, playing mostly...

    Lace Up: Save Lives

    Hopefully as alot of you know, Nike are currently producing special (Red) laces in conjunction with the AIDs charity (PRODUCT)RED. All the money from the purchase of the laces goes straight to the charity and therefore helps to fight AIDs in Africa and help those in need. They are available...

    Cutting down bandanas

    Possibly the dimmest of dim questions, but might as well throw it out there... For those of you who've cut your bandanas, have you done it in any particular way, or just gone nuts with a pair of scissors? I've got a white dryfit nike one thats about 3 times thicker than my cotton black one...

    Federer 'Test' Vapors

    Found this under the auction section of his site, a pair of tester vapors. Shame there's not more pictures, but still quite interesting. the flywire looks drawn on, and the upper a kind of sythetic leather? Thoughts?

    My new Vapor VI Tour RF

    These are my new babies Apparently they are 1 of 10 pairs in the UK, and from an incredibly limited run, made exclusively for Federer and his friends. They are the left overs from this stock and were given to this shop owner as a gift by Nike. To put this into perspective, the Rafa...

    Babolat Air Touch as overgrip?

    I've just recieved a couple of air touch replacement grips for free, thinking they were over-grips. Turns out they're not, but do you reckon i'll be able to use them as if they were?

    Factors causing a racket price to fall

    I'm currently looking to pick up a some more aero storms, but all the prices i've seen are pretty much identical to when they first came out last year. I know the prices fluctuate if there is a new version out (not in the foreseeable future) or if theres some major promotion by a pro, but i...

    Would this polo look strange?

    I'm considering getting this polo, but need some opinions. Do you think the lime green will look weird on someone who's quite pale atm, having been subjected to an english spring and winter? I usually avoid wearing all white, or pale colours but was wondering if anyone has experienced this? Is...

    Hey Guys, bit of a string novice here, so any suggestions would be a great help! I've been using Pro Hurricane Tour for a while, strung at 62ish in a aero storm. Considering going hybrid though, keeping the hurricane, but adding something else to the mix up. Anyone got any suggestions of what...

    A comparison of Nike top fits (pictures!)

    Righty, there seems to have been alot of confusion recently about the fits of the recent Nike tops, especially the new Nadal crews and the Federer polos. This isn't anything particularly thorough or concise, but i just want to supply a reference point to compare the fits of a range of tops, so...

    Vapor Versions

    on the Mid-w-e-s-t site, they have the white vapors, available with the RF logo on the heel. Also, both versions have a small swoosh on the instep, unlike the TW ones that have a frankly massive one. This usually happens every year with promo shots of un-finished designs being used, but which...

    No Nadal Polos at master's cup

    So, with the announcement that Rafa won't be competing at the Master's cup, comes another missed opportunity for Nike to introduce 'Rafa's new look'. After his change of heart at the US, Nike must have been desperate to get the Polo's introduced in shanghai, but once again, won't be able to...
