    TW tournament??

    In the past, TW players held an annual tournament, often posting videos of the matches, or seems this hasn't happened in a while. Did I miss it? is it posted in some other location?

    "Launch Angle".??? can someone interpret this??

    Dear TW family I've heard low and high launch angle bandied about when play testers and fans discuss the difference between density of string patterns. Forgive my ignorance, but it seems to me that the angle with which the ball leaves the racquet is purely dependent on the angle of the face of...

    Laver, Still Goat

    The best player is obviously the #1 of the present. Even Justin Gimelstob could beat Bill Tilden, so there is no point in discussing pure talent. The competition will always produce better players, so it makes sense that borg is eclipsed by Mac, by Lendl, by Becker, by Sampras, by Fed. If you...

    I have a Yonex rdx 500,and was essentially given a 4 5/8, but would prefer a 4 1/2. Do I have any recourse??

    zylon??? gone goodbye?

    so, last year I thought I'd step out into the super highway of tennis tech and put aside my old RD-7, that I'd been using for about 5 years. I tested the Fisher pro-1, head (new orange radical), a volkl....and the babolat control zylon which won out. The head was ok, but frankly the grip is too...

    open string pattern racquets??

    So it would appear that open string patterns, i.e. fewer mains and crosses, add spin to your game. If that is so: 1. Which racquets currently utilize this feature 2. Why don't all pro's use them, if its such a great thing. Because even if you said, Roddick needs power, he could use a "spin"...

    better than Babolat Pure Control Zylon???

    So I switched from my trusty Yonex RD-7 to a slighty lighter PC zylon. But I think I 've lost some zip AND some control. Hard to believe. Maybe its that I've gone from playing 2-3 times per week, to once every 3 weeks. Does anyone have any ideas? Still needs to be an arm friendly frame, I've...

    i know these spacers are intended to extend the life span of strings by keeping them from moving around, but does anyone think they have other effects on play????? If used, I generally get more life out of 17 gauge string...

    This could have been Cap's year, if she had a brain. Why was she hitting everything up the middle. Is that some new "anti-agassi" strategy. Why did she return straight back to Dementieva? Where was her plan B? She should retire. I'm sick of watching her trying to hit winners up the...
