    Hitting partner in Syracuse, NY area?

    I recently moved to Liverpool, NY and I am looking for a hitting partner. I would say I am around 3.5-4.0. Or at least used to be. I can still hit the ball well. But timing is off. I live in an apartment complex, Grenadier Village, and i have the tennis court in my backyard. If you live...

    How to generate more pace on the topspin serve?

    if you want more pace, u gotta toss a bit more into the court. think of a spring. toss the ball up, at the same time bend you legs and load up. keep you body turned. and once u see that ball drop, uncoil you body, push off the ground and explode up into the ball. its more body than racquet...

    Gimme some pointers on serve. [VID]

    i tried keeping my eyes on the ball longer today and it worked. no more long or net second serves. hopefully i can keep this up. but i feel that i still need a bit more margin because the balls tend to sit of the lines of the service box and not inside.

    Gimme some pointers on serve. [VID]

    i see what you mean with the toss. i feel that my toss is just random, sometimes very good, other times i feel like i have to almost crouch and bend my arms to hit a serve because the toss is so low. my body is not going into the court because those were second serves. is that a good explanation...

    Gimme some pointers on serve. [VID]

    ill try slowing it down a little. when you say above the head, u mean like directly above? so the toss should be like above baseline?

    Gimme some pointers on serve. [VID]

    where should my toss be? thats one thing i dont understand. should it be above my head and close to baseline or should it be out in front but still above my head.

    Gimme some pointers on serve. [VID]

    what i noticed before was that when i try to throw it closer to me, the ball tends to just be a sitter that doesn't kick up much. i move the ball toss more into the court to get the forward momentum. and regarding brushing up the ball, i have to constantly remind myself to do it. and sometimes...

    Gimme some pointers on serve. [VID]

    here are the serves. 3 serves for each side Vid 1 Vid 2 Vid 3 the third one is sideways. comments welcome. can someone tell me how i can get more spin on the serves to make them safer and possibly a little faster. They tend to break down during matches. Any execution flaws...

    hello fellow MF3 members. I have an issue on my hand. After playing with my MF3 so much, the strings finally gave away. Now i need to restring it, i have a Silent Partner Swing. Does anyone know where i can get the instructions for stringing the MF3. One piece preferibly. Total length? Short...

    Best 6.1 or six-one model.

    i played with the n6.1 and hps 6.1 both 16X18. Today i tried the 18X20 n6.1. THe 18X20 does seem to give a bit more control in terms of balls not flying long. Better backhands feel a bit better. With the hps 6.1 i often get balls that fly long, of course that could just be me. THe n6.1 16X18, i...

    good serves with the MF3 indeed. I was suprised. Everything went in for once. I played again today, some doubles which i was relunctant to play, but it turned out to be the best match i've played for a while. Serves were VERY VERY nice. Forced opponents to pop it up many time and of course my...

    Groundies against wall *vid*

    is that at the USTA national tennis center? I recognize the yonex booth and i think wilson booth is somewhere to the left. I used to work there. And there is a wall there now? edit: your strokes looks fluid. bends your legs.

    OMG!!!! This racquet is magic. I just bought one from one of the users on this forum, and went hitting with it today. When i first hit with it on the tennis court, i was like ehhhh... a bit stiff and boardy but the ball did stay in with nice spin. Then i went to hit against the wall....i was...

    Does pronation matter?

    im curious, when they say pronate, is it basically the change from having the edge of the racquet facing to ball to the strings being open to the ball, right before contact.
