    Question about stringing a pro staff 90 16x19

    Hello all, This might be a dumb question but why do the first 3 and last 3 crosses not alternate? They start on the same under side and finish over rather then alternate each time. Is this the same for all 16x19 string pattern rackets? Thank you

    Plain No Logo Bandanas?

    I'm looking for the Nike style Bandanas but without a logo. I don't see the need to advertise for Nike but I want a similar quality product. I've purchased a few plain ones off teh bay before but the quality was horrendous, they wouldn't even stay tied! Anyone have a source for such a product?

    Nike Grand Slam Polo's

    I have a bunch of these and absolutely love them. I saw Nadal wearing one at Monte Carlo but they have been unavailable for over a year now. Does anyone now why Nike has discontinued them? I think they should bring them back, especially if one of their star players favors them.

    Strange ping sound from Wilson Pro Staff BLX 90?

    Stringing with gut mains and co-focus crosses and I'm getting a real pingy noise when hitting. I don't use a dampener which I'm sure would help but my old K90 doesn't make this noise with the same exact set-up. Anyone else experiencing this? Might have to buy a second stick to find out for sure.

    Klip legend 16 at TW?

    I've been using the Klip legend 16 gut in my mains for a few months now and love it. I was looking to order some more today on TW but noticed it was missing. Just the 17 and 18 in stock. Not sure they're just out or if they're trying to push the uncoated stuff or some new type called "legend...

    Acute shoulder injury - Help!

    Has anyone ever gotten so frustrated that they took a wild swing at the ball trying to smash it out of the park? Well, I was playing yesterday in extremely windy conditions which always frustrates me. I got so frustrated that I tried to just rip the ball as hard as I could (stupid!) with my one...

    Affordable tennis vacation?

    Ok, so I have a free round trip airline ticket to anywhere in the USA. The catch is that I have to use it up before November 15th of this year, which is basically two weeks from today. I'm traveling by myself so I would need a place that has ample guests or tennis players/coaches willing to play...

    Cliff Drysdale talking smack about one-handed backhands today.

    Anyone else catch this during the Federer/Texiera match today? Makes me wonder what he's smoking. Says Federer is at a disadvantage because he still uses a one-hander and that he should switch to a two-handed backhand...what? I think it more has to do with Nadal's lefty top-spin forehand going...
