    Hi all, Haven't been on here in a long while! Just moved to Boston, Yes, I realize it's February and freezing cold outside. Looking to play a good amount this spring/summer. I'm in Cambridge. We have some pretty awesome (lighted) courts at Pemberton Park nearby but I'm game to take the T...

    The gut/poly thread

    I've been using MSV Co Focus in my crosses for a while now due to their softness but I'm getting the worst "pinging" noise from my string bed when I hit. It just doesn't sound solid at all. Any recommendations for a soft poly cross that will maintain tension and not sound like this? Thanks

    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

    McEnroe on Federer and Stan ''Something went on in the locker room last night''

    ... Or see anything either ;) Clearly the officiating was not the best during this match.

    chris evert looks 32

    +1 Even though Martina never was really attractive she has definitely aged better than the rest. Yup, Mary Jo probably looks the best out of all of em.

    Barricade V re-issue heads up.

    Because most companies don't foresee what shoes are going to become "classics" and which one's aren't. They end up throwing out the molds or even changing factories, etc. But one would think they should be able to reproduce a shoe that is only 6 years old?

    BTW - I got the wide fit and it's so much better than the retail fit. I don't really have wide feet but I find the retail version to be a bit cramped.

    Anyone playing with Nike Tech Challenge Hurache

    I've played in the classic Air Tech's (right corner of photo). They're not so great on the feet. I did buy a pair of II's recently and might play in them occasionally. Nothing compares to modern day Vapor's.

    Not a huge Fila fan, but

    9" inseam is right about where I like my shorts to land. They still sell the "Santoro" shorts with a 5" inseam for those that want em really short. That "shirt tail hem" is actually more of a basketball style than anything, not sure I'm digging the look? I think the current Women's...

    Not a huge Fila fan, but

    I thought it was great when they first made a comeback and had the retro Borg and Vilas polo's but then they went all flashy and weird with the line. It seems (in American at least) that they're going for the urban look/market again? I think if they just stuck to some classic and clean...

    Yeah, the Rome colorway doesn't even closely resemble the current LB blue.

    Official Nike Lunar Ballistec Thread

    What frankenshoe is Nadal wearing now? Looks really weird and isn't even a current color that Nike is offering. Looks like 4.3's with fake lunar painted soles and a blurry "Nike" symbol.

    Opponents smoking between sets ???

    This thread is tops!! I play against a guy regularly who smokes cigarettes and also mini cigars, not only in between sets but while playing! It doesn't bother me as he is usually on the other side of the net and I can't even smell it. He also plays better when he's smoking. Kinda strange but...

    I got a pair through right before they started with the "out of stock" message. I got a email from Nike last week saying they're "in production" so I guess I got one of the last pairs? It seems the pro players aren't having any problems with ID so maybe they really are at their limit of production?

    Tennis in New York City?

    I saw the two you listed, thank you! I'm not against paying if the courts are good and in close proximity to were I'll be (Williamsburg). I think those two courts you mentioned might be further than the two I'm thinking of? Would you have any suggestions for something closer to Williamsburg...

    Anyway, opinions aside, I'm just trying to figure out the best way to play affordable tennis in the city.

    Tennis in New York City?

    Not in my part of CT, we have public beaches and private ones. Just like there are public and private tennis courts, which seems like the practical thing to me? Shouldn't expect someone to use a tennis court that you build on your property but you should expect the public to use those that they...

    Tennis in New York City?

    Ok, thanks. So let me get this right, to reserve a court time you need to buy a single day pass or have a full season pass? And the reservation is an additional cost? Seems crazy that they are stacking the costs like that. Shouldn't you be able to reserve a court for free if you've already...

    Tennis in New York City?

    Hey guys, I live in CT but travel to Brooklyn on occasion (weekends) to meet friends. I've been checking into playing tennis in the city and it seems crazy.. pay for public park courts? I could understand at Central Park but on all park courts? I guess we don't realize how lucky we have it...

    Post Pictures of Your Apparel!

    Nice! I couldn't pull off the shorts but I love the classic pique polo's. Ellesse is making a comeback, they do have a retro line along with some modern performance fabric polo's that Tommy Haas is wearing. The stuff looks a lot better than what the majority of pros are wearing today.

    Borg has to be in the conversation as best ever at Wimbledon. 5 in a row and highest winning percentage record.

    Hypothetical Matchup: Borg v/s Nadal

    Also, one must keep in mind that the USO hard courts were fast as lightening in those days and the lights were down right awful. I don't think Nadal would be winning USO's on that surface. Borg also dominated on indoor carpet, they don't even play on carpet today. As far as speed goes, I think...
