    Tsitsipas keeps a ball in his pocket.....

    But one that he never hits with, isn't that strange?

    Sunday chat "nice shot" during matches

    Played some doubles, I like to say "nice shot" or "nice play all around" or "good serve". Nothing unusual there I am sure, but I had a match where I was the only person out of 4 who ever said it, I only realized afterward. That's a bit odd isn't it? On a scale of interesting, 1-10, this post...

    Djoker's Racket tech/adviser on all things pro/rec, you shouldn't use the RF :)

    Hopefully this isn't old. My favorite parts: No rec player should use the RF, not even as he describes it the "wall street ex-college players who are 5.0 now", he's convinced a few to stop using it and go lighter, even just the 310 pros staff. Most of what he says would mean no lead tape, no...

    Doubles: The one line call to think twice about

    Server (S) Returner (R) Serve partner Net (N) returner partner violator (V) S hits a very nice deuce side serve touching both lines (wide outside and back lines) and R flails at it but dumps it into the net. 3-4 second pause....V says "wide". I protest firmly since I definitely saw it...

    Mixed doubles, troll me, support me, blast me?

    Just got done with a little frustrating mixed doubles match, a little tourney tourney. Myself, I am a tennis player, rated 4.0, competitive in 4.5 doubles yada yada, my partner a nice solid 3.5. Opponents were a solid 4.5 female and an average 4.0 guy, the guy has power strokes, power serve...

    Racket PHDs brainstorm heavy swingweight

    Hope the title results in some eyes. I noticed something tonight that I think is now my go to strategy on forehands. I've noticed it a couple times before but only when using a DR extended and the current Ezone 98 extended AND the current Vcore pro 330. If I set my feet, do a proper...

    I've got a nice setup for the new Yonex Ezone 98+

    Using a 98+ for now, maybe forever, until I try the Yonex Ezone 98 tour that will be out in July or August. Anyway, used a full bed of Solinco Confidential thanks to Tennis Spin on Youtube. Anyone else trying out this stick?

    3.5 Tennis Fun, Covid social distance enforced, fresh videos within!

    This will be a thread of videos, we start with the most serious one, me hitting, mixing up some shots. Since I am new I didn't film myself very well, er, at all, but it gives you an idea of my hitting results. I'm a lefty btw, just for reference, so right side is backhand. More Vids to...

    A tennis elbow self-cure

    Maybe this will help someone else. I was having tennis elbow flare ups on overheads and serves, I finally had a breakthrough by loosening my grip toward the end of follow through motion. In other words I had a death grip on the racket throughout the entire motion and as soon as I loosened up a...

    Yonex VCore Pro 97 HD review...

    Yonex VCore Pro 97 HD Whoah, this is a pretty special racket Strung with Yonex poly tour pro 125 at mid tension Easiest for me to compare it to last years Vcore Pro 97 330g since I played with the 330 g all weekend. This is a special racket because it feels much much lighter than it really...

    UTR is making me more patient....

    You've indulged in reading my UTR rec stories of playing kids and tanking at first without knowing the consequences. Now I'm grinding my rating up and I still enjoy it. I'm not al level yet though so I am learning to keep my concentration up and plow through. I'm on a 6 match winning streak...

    Review of 2019 Wilson Blade 18x20 vs. 2019 Babolat Pure Strike 16x19

    Got both demos from PGA Superstore in Dallas, do you guys know they have a full size tennis court inside the stores, somewhat cool. Of course I buy all my stuff from T-dub warehouse. Useless or maybe useful info on me: 4.5 player, one hander bh, traditional loopy strokes, not a modern whipper...

    Extended Sticks

    Hello hive mind of tennis. Back again debating the extended racket. Reason: Played a set at a tourney today with regular Ezone 98 (blue) and was being beaten on the baseline, figured the swing-weight was a tad low plus my serve wasn't doing much. Switched to the "Plus" version and boomed...

    One handed backhand players, favorite/best rackets?

    Hi 1handers, fellow average 4.5 rated 1 hander here, probably my best groundstroke is my backhand as sad/strange as that sounds, any favorite sticks you all like to play with? I've gone through some racket schizophrenia lately. Right now I am experimenting with Yonex VC98 plus, great for...

    UTR tournament

    I played my first UTR event today and it was interesting. I like to play tennis, so anytime I can play it's a good thing, but I was wondering if anyone else had comments or thoughts on this. Probably this post is just mostly for me to vent a little, but just curious. I never played one...
