    Tsonga just hit a 1 handed backhand pass at 3,768 RPMs!

    Has anyone else seen higher on the backhand wing?

    Google Chromebook Review

    I bought an Asus Chromebook Flip for Father's Day 2 months ago. Up until 4 years ago, I was purely a Microsoft Windows guy since Windows 3.1 (dating myself I know). For the record, I think Windows 7 is excellent but I find Windows 8 and 10 incredibly frustrating without third party shells...

    Is John Williams the GOAT composer?

    His accomplishments are way too long to list in the OP but some of my favorites are below: Star Wars Superman Indiana Jones Jurassic Park Or was he born in a weak era? :)

    Prince tennis shirts

    I saw these for the first time in a store today. They seemed pretty nice but I had no idea Prince even made shirts. Has anyone out there tried them?

    Questions about NTRP strikes and benchmark players

    I thought it used to be that if you beat a Benchmark player, that was an automatic strike for "S" or "A" rated players. Is that still the case? a) If yes, what happens in doubles where an "S" or "A" player on 1 team beats just 1 player that is a Benchmark on the other team but the other...

    Trying out Electrolyte Pills

    June is almost over and I haven't seen our annual electrolyte discussion yet. I played a very hot match in the early afternoon here in sunny Florida 9 days ago. Even drinking 2 Gatorades over 2 sets, I cramped up for the first time in many years. So I ditched Gatorade and bought some...

    When did ball numbers only go up to 4?

    For the most part, most people at our club either use Penn Marathon balls or US Open balls. When playing next to others, sometimes they have the same ball number and type. I seem to remember growing up that ball numbers used to go all the way up to 8. What gives?

    Kudos to Tennis Magazine

    This month's edition had quite a few articles that captured my attention. Normally I look at the entire thing for 10 minutes tops but I spent a solid hour reading it last night. I hope this trend continues.

    Thoughts on reducing shear breaks at the top of the frame?

    I've been using the Prince Tour 100T ESP for a few months now. It is an open 16x16 pattern so I know I'll break strings quicker. I have not had a problem with most polys but my new favorite Discho Iontec broke both times at the top of the hoop. The first time it took 3 sets but the 2nd time...

    Taking the Prince Tour 100T ESP out for a demo

    I played 2 sets of singles with the 100T ESP last night. It has the new Prince black tour xs string in it, not sure of the gauge or tension. I've never played more than 4 games with a full set of poly so I was a little nervous about my arm but it was fine. The racket was brand new so the...

    Partially lost toenail on big toe

    So I lost the top half of a disgusting bloody toe nail this morning. Any thoughts on how to protect the new one coming in and keep it beautiful? I'm thinking of wrapping it with some kind of tape but not sure what to buy.

    Why are 3 setters in Miami so tiring?

    Today Murray and Ferrer looked almost dead by the end of the match and Murray trains in Miami. Djokovic and Nadal both looked spent after their epic 3rd set tiebreak duel in Miami a few years ago. This tournament used to have a best of 5 set final for goodness sake.
