    Nike 2022 General Thread

    Noooooooooooo Just bought my second pair of GP Turbo. I guess that was a smart call in retrospect.

    Pick a coach (or former pro) that could help a current player

    Lendl could help anyone. And I think Roddick could be a decent coach?

    The Big 3s, shot by shot

    You just mentioned multiple players who don't even have one Slam.

    What's your level, and what technical or mechanical problem have you solved lately?

    Big improvement on my serve with leaving the tossing arm in place a little longer, much like what Cindy is talking about. About a 4.0 NTRP

    Racket shipping boxes?

    That's not really how it happened but yeah, imagine that.

    I'm About To Give Up On This Forehand

    Video pls And yes, 2HFH is a terrible idea.

    Racket shipping boxes?

    Is there another choice for people who'd rather not make donations to The Trump Victory Fund?

    Nadal fans AO delusion

    Sure we can. Rafa is regarded as the better player than Federer, so he should be able to do everything Federer did, but more often and better.

    Best suited racket for Advanced (4.5-5.0) aggressive baseline player

    I didn't customize it at all. And it's great for a 1hbh, very stable.

    So if Federer was a weak era champion

    That's why I said he would have had a shot, and not "he would have won"

    Formula 1

    The wing has been a sore spot for Christian Horner, that's for sure.

    Del Potro looms

    He does look different, I think it's less age than it is weight gain that is very visible in his face.

    Do you think Wimbledon 2022 will be the worst slam again?

    Love people still pushing Thiem. lol wake up

    How tacky is it to use Adidas and Nike products on the SAME day

    I'm generally in all Nike but I have a few of those "Grand Slam" tops that are really nice and not branded at all. I do agree that having all the opposing logos looks weird. And I generally won't buy Adidas stuff.

    The eye test: who impressed you the most among those you watched?

    Fed is the most 'different' guy I've ever watched live. The dude was a cheat code unto himself. He knew where every ball was going and put them away effortlessly. No one else has ever looked like that, not even Djok-or-'dal.

    Need advice for playing against heavy topspin

    One thing OP didn't mention is which side this heavy kick serve goes to. Most players have one preferred side for their big weapon. So cheat to the other side and try to make him hit there.

    The fear of winning is a real thing in tennis

    My counterpoint to your argument can be summed up in one word: Dimitrov

    Looking for a new Racquet

    Which was the Prince racquet you liked so much? Any info on that?

    Best suited racket for Advanced (4.5-5.0) aggressive baseline player

    TF40 is what I picked when I needed to graduate to a more "player's racquet"

    The fear of winning is a real thing in tennis

    Yup. I got up on my 5.0/5.5 buddy the other day, 5-4. Got distracted by one of my nuts not staying in place. After every point I had to push it back down into place again. Lost the next three games without winning a point. Hilarious.

    The fear of winning is a real thing in tennis

    That's more like it IMO

    The fear of winning is a real thing in tennis

    Just did it two weeks ago to a 12-year-old girl lol. 2 MPs squandered in the TB after being up 8-3. Tightness is a *****.

    The aging of tennis may not be as new as you think

    Never thought of it that way but it makes sense. I can't see a 17-year-old taking the top guys by surprise from let's say 2005 onwards.

    Alright! sock LENGTH poll to finally find out whats good!

    I go with the Nike Elite L/R crews, or a regular symmetrical Dri-Fit crew with a lower-cut version underneath. Lately I've been doing the Elite crew under the Dri-Fit crew for ultimate tightness and warmth (I only play outside and I play year round in Virginia)

    The aging of tennis may not be as new as you think

    Nice to have some perspective. I've noticed that people here treat Becker, Chang, Wilander as the standard, not as outliers--and of course, if that's the standard then pretty much everyone playing today is an underachieving mug.

    Who do you think will win ATP 2021's: Most improved player, newcomer of the year and comeback of the year

    Djok for most improved, comeback, and most godlike player. Newcomer, maybe Musetti? But probably Alcaraz.

    The beads are back o_O

    It's been a while. Remember when she missed all that time from supposedly cutting her foot on glass at a restaurant? She came back from that break with a totally new face. That must have been about ten years ago now.

    Federer trying to play professional tennis again is ridiculous, the more I think about it

    Good point until you realize that almost every NFL quarterback fell off long before they reached his age. So he's really in uncharted territory.

    Big Title Haul of The Next Gen - Official Watch Thread

    LostGen were playing against B3/4 when B3/4 were in their primes, and aren't much younger than Djok/Ned if at all. They definitely had it worse. NextGen are lucky that they're coming into their own just as Fedal are crumbling and Djok is soon to follow.
