    Exact Sampras Setup-new KPS 88

    hi, does anyone have relatively exact specs (and a reason to believe them :p ) on how pete customizes his new kps 88? I had exact measurements on how much leadtape to use on the ps 85 from back in the day, but the 88 is more headheavy to begin with. I.e. if i throw the exact same amount of...

    New Fav: Amer Delic

    I think Amer Delic has joined the list for my current favorite players, which include Tsonga, Nadal, and now Delic. Why you ask? I just had a convo on aim with the guy. yes. I imed him, and he DIDNT block me. even after admitting i was a fan. okay, he's no roger federer, but i figured...

    luxilon copies

    I've been around for some time on these boards and have heard people swear by several different polys. Now I'm not much of a poly player, but I just use it on nat gut hybrids. so far all of my hybrids have been done with Luxilon variations (ace, bb orig, alu power, etc.) and i'm realizing...

    Nadal's Comments at MC

    I don't know if any was paying attention. While Nadal was giving his acceptance speech at the trophy presentaiton this morning. The frickin starsports commentators were inaudible, and I'm not a native spanish speaker, but I'm fairly sure I heard Nadal say something along the lines that he...

    Elusive Priority 1

    I donno if anyboyd else has noticed this (or cared to check) but It seems to be impossible for the non-ATP public to get ahold of Priority 1 stringing guys. I've got Roman Prokes' number in NY, and heck, I've got Bosworth on my speed dial. They both seem to be really nice guys, giving me tons...

    Hi guys, Im a cliche PS 85 user on a college D3 tennis team. I know that our team is sponsored by wilson and most of my firends get that cheap players pack (3 rackets, back, strings, grips for 350 dollars).

    zoom court MO GT

    this new shoe from nike sorta reminds me of the vapor s2, in terms of its straight up herringbone pattern, and just the overall shape of the shoe. at least form pictures. what i like about it is the 6 month warranty, because i ALWAYS chew through shoes in that much time. Just wondering if...

    Is the K-factor Roger's real deal. Request to Greg Raven.

    It seems like finally we have a nanotech racket that has a ps 85 sized pallt, and 4 grommets on the pws. visually, i don't think we'll be able to distinguish roger's racket from what's available to the public. Personally, I highly doubt roger switched rackets after all of the success he's had...
