    Jackson didn't leave him with much. Shelton is a guy you have to give time. At least two more years for sure that I know of

    Big 10 Tennis

    The 64 wins in a row might never be broken with the current ranking system, scholarship limits, etc. Winning on the road against good teams is very very very difficult thing to do.

    ACC tennis

    I believe most, if not all, Duke fans could care less about winning ACC championships as basketball has already won a national championship this year. btw, women's golf won the individual title this year.

    Luxilon Bronze Prototype Review

    Actually just found out some new info. There are two different "bronze" or "prototype" string out there for Luxilon. One is called "bronze" which is available on a reel at 1.30 and supposedly 1.25. The string is printed "Luxilon Bronze". The other I have only come across in individual sets...

    Big 12

    I agree that it is a little surprising to see Papa struggling a little bit. This reminds of how Chase Buchanan from Ohio State started out in college. Could be a variety of factors such as maturity, adapting to college, etc. One definite similarity I see is that both were very developed...

    Luxilon Bronze Prototype Review

    Ahh, since the cat is out of the bag, I might as well add my thoughts. Was fortunate to string a few up for a top college player and play to get his and my thoughts on "2016 Luxilon Prototype". Pros: Much easier to string than ALU or 4G Very soft when compared to the other strings on...

    UCI player returning after arrest?

    Stallworth hit a person that jumped in front of his car on a freeway. As for Kearney, he deserves a second chance. He served his punishment. Life goes on

    These are like pallets, except a little harder to find. Supply and demand dictates such markups.

    Worst racquet/ string to string?

    Gamma Ruff is always bad. BLX Pro Tour is more difficult than any Head frame because of how dense it is in the sweet spot. Also, Fischer frames with say BBO 1.38 will take a while.....

    Any Experiences with PRIORITY ONE Racket service ?

    Let me put it to you this way: Priority 1 is the absolutely best place to get any sort of racquet work done if cost is no issue. Nobody else comes close.

    Donald Young's string and equipment

    Donald uses head overgrips. I'm pretty sure the frame is stock if there is no lead visible Also, his tension is very low for what he normally uses

    Gamma 8800 ELS

    I've actually had to use one.... not a bad overall machine. Not very fast, not very fast at all. Lots of bell/whistles such as the string measurer/etc but didn't really use it. Liked the mounting. Clamps could use some more weight, base is pretty not bad. There are better machines but this...

    Thoughts on Gamma Professional

    I've tried this in the mains (18 gauge) with ALU crosses. Wow... spin potential is unreal. Good pocketing/playability. Bad part, it breaks much faster. I'm talking hour and half of hitting. Gut takes much longer to break for me.

    UVa signs Alex Domijan, the #1 American junior.

    I am going to weigh in a little on this as I have seen most of the guys yall are talking about. Every USTA/IMG/etc coach I have talked to is extremely impressed by Domijan as he gets better every time they see him play. Domijan isn't as hyped up as Evans was nor is he as gifted athletically as...

    Dartmouth Tennis?

    Biggest factor is that if you aren't top 300 or so.. you have to hope there is an odd number. I had a friend who was top 50 but he couldn't walk on to a top 20 team as they had even numbers. As a walk-on, you are basically a glorified practice partner unless you prove your mettle

    What is the stiffest poly you have ever tried?

    Stiffest... hmm.. some of the Lux 1.38 come to mind but they aren't really hard to string. PH 1.30 is nasty on a full string bed. This one British lad gave me some 1.40 shaped poly that was stiffest I've dealt. I think it was called Titan or something.. can't remember the string. Remember...

    futures player need help with pd+beneteau, fognini, andrevs, raquets.

    Untrue on so many regards. Donald works a lot with USTA now, more so than his parents. His parents are more like caretakers than coaches for him now. As for his frames, he's Donald. That is all I got to say
