    Leather grip alternatives?

    I love leather grips but I’m using six one 95’s (2017 reissue) and they push the weight higher than I want. Shocked to see Babolat skinfeel has been dropped! Are there any other ‘fake leather’ grips which keep the bevel feel? I don’t want to drop a grip size like with the tourna thin grip.

    Upper arm pain and tennis racket

    I have a pain in my upper arm (on the outside of the arm under the shoulder) and have been using stiff rackets (the one now is 71 w/full poly) for a while.

    Tsonga the new Krajicek?

    Smashed his way to Wimbledon '96 with 140mph serves, massive forehands and solid net play. Took down Pete in the QF's. Ok RK's draw was much easier after the QF's but the way Nole is playing right now he has a big shot at the final :)

    Now we'll see how good Djoker really is...

    Ok he lost to in form Fed on clay no big deal but I thought he choked the big points. Winning streaks and masters is great and all but if you don't back it up on the big stage it means NOTHING

    Order of play for semi's?

    Who is on first out of the nadal & djokovic matches? Has it been decided? If Djoker v Fed is on first I think the result could affect Nadal massively.
