    Federer losing to Samprass

    I don't know, I just want Fed to win the FO and 15 GS titles before he retires. The rest doesn't matter. Sounds tough for anyone else, but I Know Fed can, still, do it.

    The best string setup on K Factor 90 is....

    There's no "best string". It took me a couple of years of reading around this forum and experimenting to find out what kind of set-ups I prefer and/or play better with. Good luck.

    Yonex Strings

    Yonex strings rule! I use all of them, depending on what I'm doing. In short: 80 for control, 880 for awesome power, 850 for something in between.

    slice backhand questions

    Actually, slicing is MUCH easier than topspining. Anyway, all your questions will be answered by yourself with time. You need to practice, practice, practice. I'd say experiment with different levels of follow through... And sorry if my reply isn't what you wanted. Hopefull someome with abetter...

    Topspin Cyber Power String 17 recommendations

    I agree it's, probably, the most powerful poly out there. Control is good, if you have good topspin technique. Comfort is great (the only softest poly I've used is Topspin Poly Polar). Yes and feel is good, for a poly, too. Spin is GREAT for me.

    pardorn is the luckiest player alive

    He may be the biggest sport name in Thailand, but that doesnt mean he has that much money. Forgive me my ignorance, but, in tennis, don't you need to win many important tournaments to make serious money? Unless you're Anna K, of course, and get the money from the sponsors. Is that his case? Just...

    26 year old Sampras would have regularly beaten 26 year old Federer

    Who knows... but a 50 year old Federer would beat a 50 year old Sampras, every time. Why? Because of the hair. Yes, the hair. Federer will have plenty, while Sampras will have none. Confidence baby.

    Stringing poly low

    I never string full poly jobs higher than 50 pounds, becuase it feels like crap.

    Is DIET Coke bad for you?

    Soda is bad. Diet Soda is worst. People who're addicted get all worked up when you say this to them, but it's the truth. I'm happy I'm not addicted to the stuff. I just drink water.

    How Would Rate These Racquets? RDX500, RDS001, TT MP, NXG...

    Nice sticks you got there. You should probably stick (no pun intended) to your Prince (and that other Prince, maybe), for now, though.

    History repeats itself with Federer and Sampras match

    Back when I started to hear about the Federer - Sampras thing, I predicted Federer was going to let Sampras win. Back then, I didn't know it was 3 exhibitions instead of 1. Had I known, I would have predicted, exactly, what happened (yes, I know...). I'm sure Federer played hard, but not his...

    Heavy racquet? Light racquet?

    No. Imo, going lighter can, actually, give you more control. All else being equal, a lighter racquet would feel (and be) less powerful and stable, in between other things. The lower tension would help, definitely.
