    Battle of the 95' - Help me out!

    The problem is not in the head size. I feel that the beam is too thin and the launch angle is lower than I prefer. I would try the racquet with a 17 gauge string in future to see if that improves anything. Previously, I used Pro Staff 97 v11 and my two handed backhand was a weapon. Is the...

    Battle of the 95' - Help me out!

    Agree. I have a couple VCORE 95s (red version) and it has been somewhat disappointing on the two handed backhand even with added weight. After playing with the racquet for five months, I understand why it's more rewarding to learn how to control a relatively powerful frame (like the RF97 or...

    Who was that young man with Raducanu?

    Ok. Thanks. I looked up and found he's her agent Chris Helliar. But how would you explain her relationship with yet another young man :sneaky:

    Pete Sampras's 2008 autobiography "A Champion's Mind"

    I read the book a few years ago and it was a little bland but overall quite good. Just as good if not better than Andre's autobiography. Unfortunately, Pete didn't talk about his personal life as much as I would have liked. Didn't even mention his romantic relationships before dating his...

    Is 2009-13 the best five-year period ever?

    ProStaff V 11 versus Blade Pro

    I've used a leaded up PS97 v11 since I started playing. It's super solid and stable but also stiff and has a very open string pattern. If you can afford a gut poly hybrid every two weeks (full bed of shaped poly causes discomfort) and know how to create a lot of topspin (because it doesn't...
