    2013 AO - Men's Doubles Final - Bryans vs. Sijsling/Haase

    Being very proud as a Dutchman of these guys reaching the finals, what are the expectations? After beating the WTF champs Granollers/Lopez, everything is possible? Or will it just be 'another day at the office' for the bros.

    Nike Air Oscillate Clay 2008

    Any thoughts on this shoe? I think it's great that they came up with this new release. It's available at my local Dutch warehouse but I'm not sure TW sells it aswell.

    Basic white grips on new racquets. Marketing?

    Over the last year or two I've seen more and more new racquets that come with a basic white grip on them. Looking all flashy and clean, but obviously after a couple of weeks, turning into a dirty, brownish grip that looks anything but clean. When I suggest my customers to put a fresh white...

    PH hybrid bad idea?

    Yesterday I strung my N90 with Babolat Pro Hurricane in the mains and Wilson Sensation in the crosses. The result: what a dead feel! No power whatsoever! Later that night my friend told me that he witnessed the same when he had his RDS001 strung with PHT (mains) and a softer string (forgot the...

    Strings Dying

    Since I've been reading more and more about (especially) polyester strings going 'dead' - e.g. Alu Power and other Luxilon strings - I'd like to know what exactly happens after a while (sometimes surprisingly quick). For example, I've read that BB Alu Power goes dead after 4 hours, what does...

    What PS85 is this?

    Hey folks, I'm considering buying this Pro Staff from Dutch *bay. However, I'm not really sure what type it is. Most likely an Asian version, sadly.. after having received some pictures from the guy. I'm also thinking that it could be a fake (black butt cap?!). Anyway, if you guys can help me...

    Roger Federer's tour schedule 2008

    Dunno whether this has been published here on TT, but here it is. What's most striking is the choice for another clay tourney in preparation for RG (Estoril) and the change of date and venue of the Dubai Open, leaving Federer a full month break in Febuary. 09.01.08 - AAMI Classic, Kooyong...

    Sensation + ...

    At the moment I'm playing with a full Wilson Sensation string job on my N90. I bought some new ones and they came with it (even though I didn't actually prefer it, but ok). I've known the string for ages, but never really tested it on my N90. I like the way it plays, but I'm missing some spin...

    Wilson Pro Matrix

    Any info? Anyone? I'm thinking of buying this racquet via a Dutch eB*y sort of website. The only info given is that it's the racquet prior to Sampras' Pro Staff(s). It's said to be a collecters item. It's been used 4/5 times and the asking price is around 80 dollars (I'm sure the guy would be...

    PS 6.0 "85 - Another one, but it will be rather short

    First of all, sorry for making a new thread, but believe me.. it will be closed very soon (hopefully). Here's my question: I'm looking for a PS 6.0 "85 specialist/experienced player. All I want is to ask this person for some advice on stringing. So if you're willing to do some PM'ing...
