    Just bought a stringer.

    Hi guys. I just bought a czech stringer with double action clamps (was getting sick of the klippermate). The owner said that it sat in his basement after stringing a few rackets. In any case, there is some rust on the gripper, and the clamps. I was thinking of giving the machine a wipe down...

    Hi all. Looking at an athletic dna mystery pack and I am wondering about sizing. I have a medium in one of their newer shirts, and I usually wear a medium for pants, 33 inch waist. Would getting a small on their 2013 shirts and shorts be too small? Thanks in advance.

    Some help with lead

    I have been playing around with lead and my 4d 300 tours. I have not been counter balancing, so I have been making the frame more head heavy. At the moment, I have been shanking my forehands down the line. I hit with a full western grip. How can I maneuver the lead so I can naturally hit the...

    Doubles service order

    So. I just played a doubles match and when we started the second set, I wanted my partner to serve first, rather than myself. I had been serving first before, but I didn't like the side that is was on. From what I understand, it is ok to switch the order of the service between sets, but my...

    Can Rafa Recover?

    Andy Roddick was never the same after the Wimbledon 2009 Final, and he would have won it had he made that high backhand volley. Rafa had a chance to go up 40-15 in the fifth set, but he couldn't make that easy shot. It was the final swing momentum, favoring Novak. Will Rafa recover? I dont think so.
