    Will Big 3 end up with 20 slams each?

    What is the probability of such a weird ending to three fantastic careers? Wonder if they will be debating each other in their old age with each ending up with 20?

    Jack Sock Comeback?

    Sock just broke Nadal in DC. Sock looks leaner than last year. He is moving well and hitting that whippy forehand while not holding back. Only thing is he just keeps trying crazy drop shots from the back of the court when just a rally ball would keep the point neutral. Another top ten...

    Pro Staff RF97 v13 Sell or Trade-in?

    Should I try to sell or just trade-in for new racquets? I have never sold anything before, so it may be more trouble and time spent rather than just trading them in for less money at the retail store. Anyone have any experience selling racquets? I would think that selling may have a lot of...

    Slam winners other than the big 3 in last 2 decades?

    I know this has been beaten to death, but I remember Murray, Wawrinka, Del Potro, Cilic, and Thiem. Just 5 players? Am I missing someone?

    Naomi Osaka should imitate Stefan Edberg in Pressers

    I am old enough to remember Stefan Edberg purposely replied with the most boring answers in post match press conferences. Naomi Osaka should employ the same tactic and not get so worked up about them. https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1989-09-01-sp-1316-story.html

    Federer Pro Staff RF97 Autograph Too Heavy?

    I have been playing with the Federer Wilson Pro Staff RF97 Autograph for years. I bought these racquets because Federer uses them, obviously. Also, Sampras used the Pro Saff as well. I am currently on a Memorial weekend trip to visit family, and I had left my racquets on the dining table as...

    Tsitsipas Backhand against Nadal vs Medvedev

    Watching both Tsitsipas matches versus Nadal and Medvedev. Both players attacked the backhand of Tsitsipas. Surprisingly, the Tsitsipas one-hander had a harder time against the low, flat ball of Medvedev versus the high, spinning ball of Nadal. My guess is that the pace of the Medvedev ball...

    Grip Sizes of Top Pros

    Are most pros using 4 3/8" even though they are well over 6' tall? Zverev and Medvedev are extremely tall. I would imagine that their hands would completely encircle the 4 3/8" handle. I have been playing with a 4 5/8" handle since the early 1980's mainly because the salesman at the pro shop...
