    Wilson Syn Gut Power breakage issue

    We've had 7 beds that have broken almost immediately after stringing. It's the latest "Power" syn gut 16 from Wilson. This all came from 2 batches of individually packed string. We're thinking we got a bad batch. Anyone else having issues?

    ATP Ignoring Djokovic

    Conspicuously absent from the ATP website....any mention of the Novak Covid-19 tournament disaster. Unbelievable that the #1 website for pro tennis would completely ignore top news of one of it's own.

    USO Maureen Connally Statue

    Here's hoping the USO already has a Little Mo statue. I hear Althea Gibson is getting one and Connally was head and shoulders above anything Gibson did. It wouldn't be right.

    Alexis Will Call Lines!

    Recently we took Alexis to one of our matches. Set her up on the water station by the court. On close calls, we'd ask her if the ball was in or out. She was right 98% of the time!

    Babolat PD Headguard Nightmare

    I just changed a headguard on the new Pure Drive and it is truly a nightmare. Nine pieces and they have pieces that have 9 grommets on one side while the same piece for the other side has 8 grommets?? This is crazy for Babolat to produce a racquet like this. Grab a pitcher with some extremely...

    US Open Street Poll

    Did my own poll at late last night at a party. Who will win the US Open Men's Final? Nishikori or Cilic? 16 said they didn't know because they never heard of them! 2 said Nishikori. 1 said Cilic because it sounded like Chiclets gum. 4 were not interested. (BTW...ALL but 3 said they had knew who...

    New Babolat PD with White

    I happened to see a Bab brochure in the office last night. It was for the PD and the color scheme was changed to include a lot of white. It was really nice looking. I was busy stringing so I didn't get to read all of the brochure. Am I the last one to know about this?

    Babolat head guard suggestions

    Out of all the racquets I've stung in my short stringer life (a couple of months and 100 racquets), the Babolat head guard for the Pure Drive gives me fits. I worked on one the other day for 2 hours. Any suggestions on how to get these way-to-small head guards to go on easier?

    Anyone switch from a Prince Black to ???

    I have played with this racquet for years but I have broken every one of them at the 10/2 position on the head. Not a great racquet for mis-hits on overheads. Have any of you switched from the Black to something else with good results. I work in a club and have hit with a wide array of Wilson...

    Nole Played It Smart To Win IW Title

    I couldn't help notice how smart Novak played the set from 6-5 down to Fed. I'm guessing he decided to change to a slower tempo because in the last game of the set he never ripped a ball like he did in the previous games. He just got the ball in. He must have known Fed would be nervous(I...

    Cheap Way To Practice Knots

    I had some old racquets laying around that were broken. I cut the mains to where they were fairly long about two head lengths. Then just put them through the cross holes and practiced knots while watching tv. They don't have to be in the machine. It's cheap and you won't have to use your good...

    Giorgi Questioned On Alleged Shady Business Dealings

    Seems to me the reporter gave her all the room to honestly give her take on the situation but she just wanted to talk about "tennis". I agree with the reporter. Money IS part of the game and if there is a major story out thee about Daddy & her ripping off investors, it's news. Tennis news. The...

    K-Swiss Big Shot 2

    I took a chance on these and really am glad I did. I was wearing Adidas and these shoes feel so much lighter. They didn't have a break-in period for me, I just put them on and they felt like I'd been wearing them for a year. All except for the new soles, I busted my *** because they had traction.

    Percentage of Shots Hit Below The Shoulder

    I am looking for any study pertaining to how many balls in 3.0, 3.5, 4.0 play where the ball is below the shoulder of the net player, as he is hitting the ball, while he (the net player) is playing from inside the service box to the net. This is not a bet, This is for a written study...

    How will Nadal handle his eventual decline?

    Just thinking of Fed and his recent fall in the rankings. Seems like he's in the mindset where he's thinking more of failure than of success. Nadal will eventual get to this point also. How will he handle it? Will he retire sooner than Fed or stay and fight it out?

    Typical Kneejerkers Come Out! Are You One of Them?

    Seems like just after a major the kneejerkers appear with the same old panic drivel. What's wrong with Nole?? Why can't Nadal sustain his level of play, blah. To them I say, Man, It's Tennis. There's nothing wrong with either of them. They just are a victim of the usual up's & down's of any...

    Top 100 Players on Tennis Channel Make No Sense

    The Top 100 Players on TC makes no sense to me. They had people who'd won 8, 5, 3 Majors taking a backseat to people who'd just been in the FINALS?? WTF?

    AO: Stosur obviously not using PEDs

    Good god, look at the size of Stosurs arms and upper body. Reminds me of Barry Bonds & Mark McGuire. C'mon, can someone tell me with a straight face that she's not using a PED.
