    Brooks using stock Blade?

    With no obvious Wilson contract (soon to change) Brooks y appears to be using a retail Blade frame. Has the velvet paint scheme, etc. I’m sure he has it weighted to his spec, but still nice to see. I’m seriously impressed by his moxy, unique game… like a modern day Brad Gilbert but with...

    Murray testing other Head racquets

    Probably noticed or seen before but Murray was testing out the Extreme and Gravity today. Was watching him practice this evening at WSOpen. He said he was looking for a little more help (power) since he’s getting older but still playing with his older frames for the tournament. Didn’t do a...

    Has the current state of play (courts, ball, strings, etc) made it easier for the big 3?

    This thought happened across my mind as Nadal one #19 and the gaudy stats of the big 3 in terms of slam totals. It seems almost crazy that a slam total of 14 by Sampras was eclipsed so fast and by not one, but three players playing in the same era. How many years was it between Emerson and...

    The truth of the search for the holy grail of racquets...

    Truth be told, every racquet is capable of making virtually all the shots in the book. I would even argue that every racquet is capable of hitting all the shots. Problem is, obviously it's much more difficult to hit a drop shot with a cannon like the PD than it is the PS 6.0. Doesn't mean...

    Tour 90 vs HPS 6.0 95

    After playing with the HPS 6.0 95 for over a year and finding my holy grail... I decided to finally try the Tour 90 for s@*ts and giggles. Also with the price dropping on the Tour 90 and the HPS stick starting to feel lighter to me... the voices in my head started getting louder. The Tour...

    Zo Gamma Life

    Well, just strung my HPS 6.0's up with this and hated it from the first hit. I normally play with Big Banger Alu and have played with Prince Polygut from time to time. Zo Life is stiff, has little feel, lacks in spin, very little power. I really had swing hard to generate my normal pace...

    Any Opinions on Gamma Zo Power?

    I've been using Luxilon Big Banger for awhile and really like the blend of power, feel, spin, and durability I get. I participated in the string test Gamma did for a polyester string and was wondering if the Zo Power string was similar. Has anyone else that participated in the string test...

    Agassi will retire?

    I'm a big fan of Agassi and have always enjoyed watching him play. However, after the Federer match I fear this may be his final year. I still believed that he could win another major, but now the draw has to fall his way for that to happen. The truth is a guy like Federer didn't have to...
