    Anyone ever hit with a Weed?

    Mmm...didn't consider the string. The frame itself is as much as a Wilson Clash so even though hitting with Weed was a pleasure I think I will return the frame next week to the owner.

    Anyone ever hit with a Weed?

    Anyone here ever use a Weed racquet? I just used one today and was favorably impressed. Wondering how a Gamma RZR 117 stacks up.

    Zverev after 2021 RG loss: "I don't care about semifinals. I wouldn't have cared about the final either."

    If you looked at Zverev's mostly unemotional lackluster behavior during the bulk of the match no one would dispute what he said. At least he is honest if not giving any hope to his fans.

    Pavlyuchenkova and Rybakina are in the QF of the Women's draw and Women's Doubles draw - as partners.

    This is a taste of what tennis was like a few decades ago. Players regularly played both singles and doubles particularly at the Slams. I can't say tennis is better today for the monochromatic styles we see out there. In retrospect Cori Gauff made a blunder partnering with Venus Williams as they...

    Musetti is the real deal !

    Musetti looks great and stylish as a real crowd pleaser. For the young player the greatest asset anyone could have is between the ears, and how he's able to grind out a career, if possible. For this we will wait and see if he has what Fed, Nadal and Djokovich have. The spirit to fight on.

    This is why Naomi Osaka is skipping press-conferences

    It's unbelievable to me that the psycho-dramas of one player now has people calling for an end to the post match interviews altogether. It's like one child falls off the swing so no children may play anymore.

    Naomi Osaka withdraws from the French Open

    I don't think enough of Osaka to "hate her" though that's always the woke reaction..."disagreement with me equals hate". It's childish. Just ditching the entire French Open is hardly the way to deal with stress or whatever has a bug up her skirt. I can tell you this...this blot on her resume...

    Naomi Osaka IS women's tennis

    You can see the level of maturity in some posters. There is very little of it.

    This is why Naomi Osaka is skipping press-conferences

    The questions any athlete has to face from the press are almost invariably mundane and vapid. All this b.s. about Osaka's "mental heath" being at stake is really hilarious, however. Yonex can be none too happy about their premiere client being a childish Gen Z whiner. Someone should make her...

    Would you give up 20% of your future salary for your favorite of the Big 3 to be cemented as GOAT?

    Seriously? Someone should look up the old expression "to gild the lily". It's called stupidity.

    Fed and Serena...Future?

    Good points. But the Serena sychophants don't want to hear it. They think the overly large, sweaty, aging tennis star somehow can ignore all the laws of nature and the young hungry pack of opponents who simply don't fear the imperious Serena anymore. Every athlete ever born has their own...

    Fed and Serena...Future?

    Have you seen Serena struggling on clay? It's sad. Maybe it's because she has such strong faith in herself she doesn't think she has to show up in shape anymore. Of course it's been that way for years but now, and on clay, of all surfaces, her bulky frame and diminishing court coverage does her...

    Fed Cup Now Billie Jean King Cup

    B.J. King would be more respected if the gap between her calls for equal treatment of women wasn't nullified by her approval of women earning equal pay for less work. Hypocrisy is like that.

    Prince RipStick 300 - coming soon!

    I'm demoing the Rip Stick right now and I hit flat a lot, but not exclusively. I'm experiencing no problems and I think the frame is incredibly versatile. For me, right now, the racket is a big winner. It does everything well. At net, at baseline and in between.

    Swiatek, Osaka and Kenin, Possibly, Will Form the WTA Triumverate For the Forseeable Future

    Kenin recently reached the quarters of one of the Australian tournaments with an inflamed appendix. How impressive is that? And she already has a Grand Slam to her credit. Yes Barty is impressive. But my trio represent the coming WTA and what could be. Barty is in her prime and can only go down...

    Swiatek, Osaka and Kenin, Possibly, Will Form the WTA Triumverate For the Forseeable Future

    The WTA is well set up for their future with the crop of players coming up. The ATP not so much. And I see Swiatek and Osaka, primarily taking the lead and maybe Kenin as a third choice from time to time. If you love woke clones then you like Osaka but I much prefer the Polish player Iga Swiatek...

    Iga Swiatek - Prince racquet

    Ostapenko didn't either in her magic season. I'm just saying there is no guarantee Swiatek will ever repeat her magic at the French Open this year, though I'm a fan. All the more reason why Prince would not likely try to shovel the big dollars at her. Wilson or Babolat seem to have unlimited...

    Iga Swiatek - Prince racquet

    On the other hand, Swiatek could wind up like Ostapenko so Prince has a lot to consider.

    Swiatek...countdown to racquet change

    Prince is like the guy who takes out the prettiest girl in school and then she dumps him when some trust fund punk flashes his cash. You need the money to sign big names. You need big names to get the money. Prince is caught in a trap.

    Swiatek...countdown to racquet change

    I would love to watch Swiatek against Barty, or Andreescu (if she ever plays again) or even Osaka. Her game matches up well against them all.

    Swiatek...countdown to racquet change

    If Prince can't retain Swiatek, like everyone assumes, it would make sense to switch now when you have several months before Australia to make the adjustments of a new frame. Or just put on a new paint job like so many others do.

    2020 Roland Garros - WTA General Discussion

    Swiatek and Kenin in the finals. The new breed has arrived. If tennis ever gets back to normal it will be interesting to see how players like Andreescu, Osaka and Bary fit in. And every year players like Gauff are improving and moving up. Women's tennis is well set for years to come.

    Iga Swiatek - Prince racquet

    Prince lost French player Lucas Pouille to Babolat. I suspect Swiatek will follow the money after the F.O. ends. Prince is caught in a trap...they can't get pros to use their frames without lot's of cash. And they can't get lots of cash without the pro names drawing in customers. Too bad because...

    Sofia Kenin is not clutch

    Obviously I think Kenin has been quite tenacious, overall. Her overall record bears that out.

    Sofia Kenin is not clutch

    Kenin won the 2020 Australian Open coming back from a set down to beat the former world number one, Garbine Muguruza, 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 . Is that not clutch?
