    Achilles heal brace.

    I've recently been having a lot of achilles pain. Went to a podiatrist and found out that I do have bone spurs on both feet. Was basically told that I just don't stretch enough. She did recommend sleeping in a nighttime splint (easy to google) is one of the best methods to help your Achilles...

    do i need to change anything in order to add more power to my forehand?

    By suggesting the use of continental, the fact that his idea of tennis is bounce rallies with two deflated old balls was understood. I may have misinterpreted your statement.

    Hitting up on the serve

    Would the Jolliteri Academy accept a visit from a squat, middle-aged-man from Louisiana? I'd seriously consider booking a trip up there. If you say no, I'll turn to the Jolluminati for help.

    Shoe advice

    I got my first pair of Gel Court FFs about a month ago, and love them. I can't find them anymore, it seems like perhaps they discontinued the line? I just got some of the new Asic Solution Speed FFs (In the TW exclusive grey/gold) and they are the most ridiculously uncomfortable shoe that I've...

    The Prince Phantom 93P is a gift to us from TW - My Review/AMA

    Hi everyone, I really like my 93P, but I think I might have it strung a little tight. I see lots of recommendations for it to be strung between 42-46lbs, but would that also apply to using multi string? Currently, I use Technifibre Multifeel 17. I've had issues in the past with TE, so I...

    [video] 5.5 vs. 4.5 lesson

    I found myself getting haughty with @pencilcheck for @nytennisaddict , but then, @nytennisaddict has a way cooler mindset than me. I've been playing for less than a year and the only thing comparable about our games is we both wear shoes.

    Great forehand vs great serve

    He has height on me as well, but I have a bigger heart! I'd assume I do at least, I've been fairly overweight for a long time.

    All I see is a proud dad, and deservedly so.

    Do you give 100% when you are feeling a bit rough?

    As a newer player, I'm completely obsessed. So far nothing has kept me from going out to the courts, even the day after I had two wisdom teeth removed. It wasn't pretty, and everyone was surely disgusted by the amount of blood soaked gauze I went through.

    7.0 mixed dubs: poaching on your partner's weak serve

    I really struggle with every shot, but swinging volleys destroy me. I think that since I'm near sighted with a severe astigmatism, but have now reached the age that I sometimes need to use reading glasses, that my eyesight blurs and I actually lose the ball for a second on swinging volleys...

    Ever seen a heavyweight Brawl on the court?

    If the roles were reversed, the Asian guys would have gotten the number of people that surrounded the bus correct. It's not a stereotype, it's just that white people are really bad at over exaggerating stories.

    What is your main singles strategy?

    What's the relationship between these forums and Tennis Warehouse? I'd guess the majority of TW's sales are from these not tennis players.

    I played in my first USTA tournament a few months ago. Other guy hit a lob that was going 5 feet out, and I started to catch it..then remembered I couldn't and lowered my hands. Ball hit me dead center, right between my moobs.

    You Make The Call:

    Very poorly, and it’s a real issue. If my partner says anything as I’m going to hit the ball, I’m especially likely to screw it up.

    We here at Tennis Talk are way too savvy and apathetic for all of this YouTube Marketing 101 tease ****. I know what he’s doing, but I’m still going to watch 1/8th of the video regardless.
