    Talk Tennis Australia: Wish List

    Yes - clay court shoes would be a huge plus. Also, proliferation of clay courts really depends on where you are... here in Melb (esply in the E Region) clay courts are everywhere... even the National Tennis Centre at Melbourne Park (where the AO is held) has heaps of genuine clay courts now...

    So where is tennis in Australia at?

    I'm in the Eastern Region, so my inference would probably be a bit biased - I feel that the Camberwell, Box Hill, Nunawading, Blackburn, Templestowe, Ringwood etc going all the way to Fern Tree Gully has a thriving tennis community. I grew up playing on hardcourt, but I really appreciate en tout...

    So where is tennis in Australia at?

    Me thinks that it depends on where you are located. I can confirm that there are heaps of clubs in Melbourne, with a thriving recreational competitive tennis scene around (both night tennis and weekend tennis). It is true that many pvt clubs are turning their clubs back to the Council and in...

    Suggestions on GoPro HD Hero2 or equivalent...

    Thanks, Chas. I did read that weblink earlier. And yes, my major grouse is that the Casio FH100 is discontinued and it might be a little dodgy buying one on Fleabay. I'll hunt some more... Has any replacement been launched yet for the FH100 by Casio? I would want to view it on a 16:9...

    Racquet *very* similar to Yonex RDS 001 MP

    Thanks, all. I seem to have difficulty sourcing the RDiS 100 MP here in Australia. Is the Vcore 98D the replacement for the RDiS 100 MP?

    Racquet *very* similar to Yonex RDS 001 MP

    Folks, The Yonnie RDS 001 MP was one of my faves from some time ago (which is no longer available). Is there a current racquet that plays very, very similar to it (swing weight, static weight, balance, stiffness and overall feel)? Ur advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in...

    NRG2 replacement...

    Folks, I'm a 4.0 using an APD with NRG2 in the mains and Blackcode in the crosses. Since the time I relo-ed to Australia, I can't source a reel of NRG2 locally here. Can you suggest some alternatives to NRG2 that would play very similar? Thanks in advance.

    comfortable shoe recommendation sought

    I play on clay (en tout cas) 80+% of the time. I used to use the Prince T9 Roadsters, which were not only light, had a low to ground feel, but were also cushioned; but since they wore out (and I can't source them here in Aus), I now wear the Barricade. The Barricade provides excellent stability...
