    Arm issues : Stiff Poly low tension 36 lbs or Synthetic Gut at 55 lbs ?

    The non-linear power response with polys is not changed with tension reduction, ime. The sweet spot does open up some, but swingspeed still needs to be maintained.

    Tier One Ghostwire

    Ashaway kevlar always has a significant tension loss/break in period for 30-45 minutes due to the braids lengthening out.

    How much string should be cut from a 200 m string reel for a 97 sq in frame?

    If you're just giving it to the stringer, best to stick with the standard 40' unless he specifically tells you less is ok. (Really 36' would work)

    clash 100 pro

    Klip is known as the lowest powered NG, so I'd stay around 54-55 to get a good comparison.

    Emma Raducanu height? Wrong information at the official WTA site

    Fernandez is shorter than 5'6" Think 5'7" for Emma is about right.

    Anemic SW for this boomer.

    Help! Need durable non poly string!

    Sorry to ask, do you play tennis?

    Help! Need durable non poly string!

    The black coated versions of multis should survive a bit longer than this.

    Has admiration for Federer killed extreme grips in one handed backhands?

    Ok can accept that a pivot in approach has taken place: taking the 1hbh early is the new western grip in current tennis.
  10. 2nd Serve Ace

    Has admiration for Federer killed extreme grips in one handed backhands?

    Well lets state the obvious, Rafa just basically ended 1hbh dreams of winning on clay, so the impetus to have a western grip greatly dwindled as a result.

    A racquet not too demanding for a senior 4.5/5.0

    Is the blade 104 out of the question? Maybe pop in 2 grams lead at 12 and add a leather grip, seems like specs would be right there.

    Hybrid set up: What do you feel more?

    The poly cross helps the gut mains to snapback, enhancing topspin.

    Swiatek...countdown to racquet change

    Only player to make the 4th round of each major this year. With lots of room for improvement.

    Swiatek...countdown to racquet change

    Good work from Iga in 3rd rd of uso. Played a hot player coming in. She has abrevieated her serve toss and motion! Also, the nervous head tics seem to be gone. She does touch her cap and hair a lot but I guess a fast twitch player needs an outlet and this is better than that awful head tic...

    It's now time to accept that Stefanos Tsitsipas will never be a serious contender.

    Im sorry, but his Dad and Mouraginu are not an effective coaching team. He needs like a real legit pro to coach him.

    Rolls of natural gut

    Haha. Doesn't exist!
  17. 2nd Serve Ace

    It's now time to accept that Stefanos Tsitsipas will never be a serious contender.

    Well, he needs to get out of this mode of hitting a lot of fluttery, nothing "topspin" BHs that just get him further behind in a rally.
  18. 2nd Serve Ace

    Tsitsipas: lack of BH variety the main concern going forward.

    Not just rally, but serve return as well. That Spanish kid just kept hammering serves BH and ST just kept fluttering out mishit returns into the hitting zone.
  19. 2nd Serve Ace

    Tsitsipas: lack of BH variety the main concern going forward.

    Wow! ST had exactly 2 bh winners in 5 sets against an 18 yr old and 20+ UF on the bh side. Obviously, his insistence on hitting weak, fluttery "topspin" backhands in every situation is not helping him win important points. The whole point of a 1hbh is the variety in shot selection, but dang...

    Has the Pure Drive become…Taboo??

    Better choices nowadays in the power 100 category compared to the PD.

    So the new VCP has a more aero-style beam shape?

    Another New Head Line ??

    That will be the Rublev line!

    Maybe a gravity 98?

    Adidas uso camo

    The black/grey shirt is sharp as well.

    Adidas uso camo

    Maybe so but it still looks awful on Tsits. The reverse on FAA is actually pretty sharp.

    Adidas uso camo

    The camo shorts with the beige tops are nice, but the camo tops just look gross to me.

    Is the EXTREME MP the most comfortable PURE DRIVE alternative?

    +1 EZ 100 is what should have been in your title.
