    haha i didnt kno federer wore these...

    Federer has been wearing his old shoe's soles for a long time, ever since the vapor 4's came out. I posted a picture of this a looooong time ago. Regarding the Nike ID, Nike definitely allows you to customize many items, but I don't think tennis shoes are one of them, unfortunately. His...

    stronger arms for tennis

    I see what you guys are saying, and it makes a lot of sense. I just thought that if I were a little bit stronger overall for tennis specific muscles, I'd be able to play with players who hit more aggressively and have heavier balls. I'm already working on some balance and speed training, but...

    stronger arms for tennis

    Are there any specific exercises that you would recommend to strengthening the muscles I need to hit a harder forehand so that my racket doesn't torque, or be able to firmly hold my racket in place on volleys. I have been doing some minor exercises, but would appreciate advice if any of you had...

    Vitamin water replacing regular water?

    At most I try to drink one vitamin water a day, usually drinking different flavors. Water always has, and most likely always will be, the best thing to drink if you are an athlete. Your muscles are made up of mostly water so it is important to drink clean, pure water. Eating nutrient rich...

    need help with string choice

    i just got a question about what poly string to use next. I have just broken a set of cyberflash but it wasn't soft enough for me and didn't offer the spin/power combo i'd like. Was just wondering what you guys would suggest for me to use next: SPPP or just go with a poly/multi hybrid like...

    3.0 player vs. Open player (actual pro)

    just don't try to force him to do things. its fine if he's a 3.0 going for the big boys, it'll be good experience, but don't CLASSIFY him as a 3.0, its almost like being prejudice. oh your a 3.0 so you stand no chance to a 4.5, but thats not always the case you know. Just give him a little...

    When will Isospeed Pro 17 string become available again at TW?

    craig, have you tried isospeed pro 17? i was thinking of buying that cause i heard the playability is insane, but it loses tension too fast and isn't that durable. can you confirm this? I'm using cyberflash right now, but i don't see the great fuss that everyone is making. I'm looking for...

    forehand: using too much hand

    too much wrist motion to be more exact. I guess I just swing my wrist too much, which causes me to swing early sometimes and swing late sometimes. I'll try and see if i can get a vid over the next few days or weeks. p.s. ( i got finals coming up these next few days )

    forehand: using too much hand

    Today i found out with the help of a coach that I use too much hand motion on my forehand, and that I should use more rotation, etc. but its really hard for me to do. Anyone got any tips/pics/vids to show me the correct, not too wristy, forehand?

    I didn't like Cyberflash

    honestly, I was not that impressed with cyberflash either. Maybe it was the tension, or the full set up, but it just didn't work too well for me. I"m not saying its bad or anything, the price is unmatched for that kind of string, but it did not feel as comfortable as I hoped.

    please comment on these hybrids

    can anyone comment on the following hybrids: 1) NXT duo 2) Sensation duo 3) iso-speed duo I'm looking for decent durability, and good comfort/spin. All of these are in my price range, but I just want to know which one would be the best for me. Thanks.

    Which is Better-Tennis Camp or Private Lessons

    i think it'd be smart to take a few private lessons then go to camp. private lessons will get your technique smoothened out, then camps give you lots of good training and experience.

    watching the ball

    just think of it this way, if you don't watch the ball, how are you supposed to be able to hit it? its like basketball or baseball, you always gotta know where the ball is. you can't just be like "oh i think the ball will bounce around here, so i'll just start swinging" you have to be...

    someone test canas for drugs...again!

    I'm a fan of Federer but i'm not a HUGE fan, i don't believe that federer is perfect, but come on, how does canas, who is ranked outta the top 100, defeat the number one player without some "help" ;) sure you say he's fast, but how do you think he got that way? by hardwork? maybe...

    backhand question

    do any of you guys (two-handers) out there grip your left hand a little firmer then your right hand when hitting a backhand? I've heard that your backhand is basically a lefty forehand with your right hand guiding, but i never took that seriously, but last time I went hitting I tried holding my...

    serving muscle ache

    recently when i've been serving, first or second serves, the muscle in my hand near my thumb and pointer finger knuckles has been hurting. I don't know if its because my racket my be too heavy, although i haven't had this problem before, or maybe i'm just hitting through the ball wrong. Has...

    Roger's Incredible Windshield Wiper Motion

    JCo, I thought most people said thaht Federer hits on a flatter plane then most pros do, meaning he hits more through the ball. This video clearly shows he's brushing up on it. Has he changed his style in the last year or so?

    Whats the difference

    why would they need to keep in mind that you're 13 and a 3.5-4.0? In asia, there are different versions of the rackets. Almost the same, but just slightly different specs. You should always be take caution when buying rackets, because you need to have two that have exactly the same beginning...

    TW Staff: Nike Air Zoom Vapor IV Review?

    TW, I know your review hasn't come out, but I'm about to place an order an maybe 4 of these shoes, and was just wondering if you had any short comments about the shoes, just so I know before I blow a lot of money on these. Thanks.

    Another Favour from JCo872

    it's called a jumping backhand, safin does it a lot. anyways, your groundstrokes look really good, i'm impressed, but you should probably move your feet more/faster. Doesn't look like you're that energetic, and it can hold your game back.

    Great site about TENNIS TIPS!!!

    i thought he just recommended continental grip for the ready position, so that you can change to any grip easily. He uses semi-western for forehands other wise how would he have been able to become a pro player.

    how are vapor 4's vs. vapor 3's

    I bought the vapor 3's and wasn't all that impressed. I'm looking to buy the vapor 4's since the air max cage won't be out till april, but I'm looking to see what the major differences are between the 4's and the 3's. Thanks anyone.

    so when is nike men's cage coming?

    Sorry TW, but I need to know when this shoe for men will be arriving, because I need to know whether or not i should just order vapor 4's rather then wait for the cage, although I think I would like the cage better. Any exact dates? Thanks.

    Do you think I can become pro?

    you could go pro, but it's highly unlikely that you'll be very successful, like top 50, or maybe not even top 100.

    i need to improve my mentality...

    Recently when I play, and I play badly, I get angry at myself, and I don't know how this is effecting my game, but i'm sure it's pretty bad. I feel like I want to hit all these shots that are perfect to be hit, but I just can't. I've tried so hard to practice and study tennis just to get...
