    Tecnifibre ICE CODE finally in reels on TW!!!

    One of my fav strings, FINALLY being carried by TW in reel form. Its like a softer version of a Razor Code, at least it feels that way to mee, plenty of pop, plenty of spin, I really feel the ball sink on the stringbed. I really like the 17G (1.25mm) gauge, although, for chronic breakers...

    Dumb question #2: when you win a tiebreak, did you win 7 games???

    For a round robin tournament, where sets won-lost come into play, and games won-lost, in the event of ties, whats the deal with tiebreaks? Does the 7/6 mean you won 7 games and lost 6?

    Silly question (someone made me doubt): String reels in carryone ok for Intl flights?

    Last time I brought reels in carryons were in June, I had my doubts about that, but now remembered: I checked a duffel bag as a carryon, and had like three reels in it, and it was only at the gate front desk that they gave me the option to check it in as stored luggage. But there was no issue...

    Where can you stand in doubles???????

    Thanks! Was actually bamboozled yesterday, playing a practice doubles. Was told by one of our opponents that it was illegal to stand in the same half before the serve was hit (either inside the box or the same half of the court in general!).

    How should I handle this cheating?

    Just.... mention it? "Sorry, whenever you go after the ball and toss it to me, Im falling out of my rhythm, so please dont toss it to me or go after it between my 1st and 2nd serve" If they do it again after that, claim a 1st serve.

    Where can you stand in doubles???????

    I've been playing tennis for 24 yrs, and I have NO IDEA about this ruling, mostly bc I'm a singles player, have very little doubles competition, and Im about to play a doubles tournament. Yes, I'm aware of the "I" formation, but again, that is not as extreme as what I'm proposing. When you do...

    Where can you stand in doubles???????

    The specific question: Can players stand wherever they want during doubles? For example, if I'm serving on the deuce side, can my partner stand on the deuce side as well? I attempted to do this yesterday: me serving deuce side, my partner at net on the deuce side as well, so I would serve and...

    Lacoste AGLT Ultra.... hows that going so far???

    Hello! I'm a Lacoste fan, but never tried their shoes, and am really tempted about the re-launch of their tennis shoe line. I've always used adidas, Nike (Zoom Cage 3 for years till they pulled the plug), moved on to Asics (FF2 and Gel Res 8, which I love). Can you guys give me some imput about...

    What is better about box beam racquet construction vs babolat styled triangular beam?

    Arent we (the forum geeks) like the 1-3% elite that actually KNOW about paintjobs??? I dont know about you guys and your courts/clubs, but in my neck of the woods, its almost always a SHOCKER when I talk to the big portion of the cake of tennis players (club players) about pj and how they cant...

    Kicked my son out at 18 - And it was the best thing to ever happen to him

    Both ends of the extremes are wrong. Congrats, youre an @$$hole. Your son didnt ask to be brought to the world, it was your choice (and your wifes of course). What a fcked up teenage yeas those mustve been fearing that day you turn 18 not really knowing if youre gonna be thrown out. Youre...

    Dealing with a net rusher

    What else is there? Kidding: but basically, yeah, thats it. Mix up your passing shots. A down the line passing shot is gonna be the most difficult shot, if its not a very good one, your opp might get to it and volley to the open court, so you should mix it up to keep them guessing. Id say the...

    Triple tie criteria for Round Robin tourney

    According to USTA, all games that have not been played and would be needed to complete the match should be awarded to the winner, i.e.: Player wins due to retirement while up 4-3 first set, final official score should be 6-3 6-0 But thats USTA, not sure what ITF would say about it.

    Triple tie criteria for Round Robin tourney

    So.... anyone have a clue on what the official score should be when a player wins due to their opponent retiring mid match???? I'm clear now that the criteria should be, % sets won/sets played, then head to head (If only two players stand tied), then % games won/games played, THEN head to head...

    Triple tie criteria for Round Robin tourney

    Heres the Juice: Group stage, 1st and 2nd advance to an elimination bracket. Three players are tied with 2W and 1L. So whats the ITF and/or USTA ruling for these ties? I assume its w-l sets difference, then w-l games and then direct result. But here is the Curveball: one of the players tied...

    How come AYAAA is not a hindrance???

    Wondering.... If a player said c'mon right after hitting the ball, just like Vesnina goes "ayaaa" on every hit, would it be a hindrance???? Its not like Vesnine has ALWAYS done this, its a "learned" habit, its not like its completely involuntary. Why is this not a hindrance?????

    Why does Benoit Paire continue to play tennis?

    He's not paid, as in salary. Hes earned it w his ranking, which he has worked up before. If he keeps his current situation up, he looses that hard earned status. Of course he should be penalized if hes stupid enough to SHOWBOAT his lack of effort. He could be a bit less stupid and loose 1st rds...
