    Clarification on Federer's racquet history

    This may be a stupid question around these parts but I just wanted to get some clarification..... When Federer switched to the Pro Staff Tour 90, he actually switched to that frame, right? And that's the frame that was under all the following pj's until he switched to his current 97? If not...

    Best women's shoes for wide feet

    Hey all, just trying to get some opinions here. Looking for a pair of tennis shoes for my girlfriend who has wide feet. I've looked up lists of suggestions and then we look at reviews of suggested shoes and a lot of them end up saying they're too tight! I was thinking maybe I could get a bit of...

    2015 US Open Women's SF: Flavia Pennetta[26] vs. Simona Halep[2]

    The favourite is obviously Halep here. She showed her grit and battle level against Lisicki and she really brought it to Azarenka, again battling to win in 3. That said, Pennetta has been a good player at the US Open throughout her career. She'll be a tough test for the Romanian.

    2015 US Open Women's QF: Petra Kvitova[5] vs. Flavia Pennetta[26]

    Kvitova is in her first career US Open quarterfinal while Pennetta is gunning for her 2nd career US Open semifinal (1st in 2013, lost to Azarenka). Kvitova is currently serving up a break 4-2 in the 1st.

    2015 US Open Men's QF: Jo-Wilfried Tsonga[19] vs. Marin Cilic[9]

    This is a really interesting QF matchup! Will the in-form and ever dangerous Tsonga be able to stop Cilic in his title defense? Cilic has done well to stay alive so far but I really think he's vulnerable to a player who can actually get the job done, unlike a Kukushkin or a Chardy.

    2015 Western & Southern Open QF: Alexandr Dolgopolov[Q] vs. Tomas Berdych[6]

    Sort of an interesting matchup. Dolgopolov has taken advantage of a good section of the draw with Nishikori withdrawing and got himself to the QF's. As for Berdych, he has quietly cruised through his first two matches, beating Bellucci 6-2 6-3 and Robredo (a quarterfinalist last year!) 6-0 6-1.

    2015 Coupe Rogers 1st round: Novak Djokovic[1] vs. Thomaz Bellucci

    Figured this match deserved its own thread considering how competitive it is. We're half an hour into the match and it's 2-2 in the 1st. Djokovic obviously isn't at his best but the Brazilian is going toe to toe with him!

    Is the Citi Open not part of the US Open series anymore?

    If not, when did this happen?? It's been a staple in the line of summer hard court tournaments of increasing prestige, from a 250 (Atlanta) to a 500 (Washington) to a M1000 (Canada and Cincinnati) to a Grand Slam (US Open) so it seems really silly for it to not be a US Open Series event anymore.

    2015 Wimbledon Men's Round of 16 - Vasek Pospisil vs. Viktor Troicki[22]

    Interesting match-up in that both players are trying to get to their first ever Slam QF. One really rough service game by Pospisil is the only difference in the match against Troicki so far. Otherwise, both players holding serve with ease. Another match that could go the distance if the...

    2014 Rogers Cup Men's QF: Milos Raonic[6] vs. Feliciano Lopez

    I figure since we're at this stage of the tournament, might as well make separate match threads. Raonic is the favourite here, but both his unseeded opponents so far - Sock and Benneteau - have threatened him so we can't look past Lopez. He can't have any hiccups on his serve because he has...

    Which racquet in the Six.One line is closest to the original thing (PSC 6.1)?

    As the title says.... I haven't hit with many racquets at all so I don't have any first hand experience to go by. Of all the updates to the Prostaff Classic 6.1, which one is the closest to the original? Second question: which model do you like best besides the original? I remember the Hyper...
