    Question about the extra string that came w/ the racquet I ordered.

    I ordered just recently a Wilson K90 Tour and went with a hybrid. I got a full set of Babolat VS 16 gut and had you guys just do the half set in... so I had the other half set in a bag. I was curious if you stretched the entire string (I'd like to know if my other half is stretched or not) or...

    Tennis Warehouse Awesome Service

    I just ordered a Wilson K Factor KSix-One Tour 90 Racquets with a custom hybrid via phone since they didn't have the string I wanted in the hybrid so I had to choose a different string. The service was excellent and very polite!

    Looking for a video

    I remember awhile ago there was a video of someone serving against Nadal I believe (?) and the ball hit the net post and came back in and it was an ace.

    Do you feel the final match was close?

    Do you feel the match between Federer and Nadal was close or separated? I feel it was a closer match than anyone realizes; it really could have gone Federer's way if he would have won one of the break points in the first set. The game was incredibly close and very high level in my opinion. One...

    Awesome Combination (Gamma NG, Topspin CF)

    US Open Fans/Crowd

    I was curious on what everyones thought is? I think the crowd has been pretty pumping for some players but pretty rude to others. Booing when they challenge and what-not hehe :p. Or yelling during points or as the player is about to serve. I think the match between Haas and Safin was bad...

    Wimbledon: Mens Final vs Womens Final

    Don't post spoilers or who won! Which final do you think was better and why? For me, I really liked seeing serve and volley so I liked the womens match *granted* I don't like either Mauresmo or Henin-Hardenne :p. A lot of good touch, placement and just steady and interesting tennis. The...

    85 vs 100 sq. in.

    Well I've been playing with a Wilson ProStaff 85 for awhile strung with Cyberflash Topspin @ 55 lbs and have been playing well. DireDesire sent me this great racquet and I pulled out some of my old racquest just to compare it. Then I saw the differences between a 100 sq. in and an 85 sq. in...

    Came Across Something Interesting 163.6 MPH Serve I was basically looking for old service clips of Bill Tilden because I remember watching it from a video my old High School coach had. It really looked like a work of art -- beautiful, fluid and perfect striking. Not sure if that's true...

    What a great feeling!

    My match is up next in the state conference championship bracket. The match starts and I can hear my opponents teams screaming their name while I hear a few of mine scream my name. One person from another team was quitely saying my name/college team. I lose the first set 2-6... tough start...

    Interesting racquet for ohbh

    I was quite suprised. I'm not much of a fan of OS racquets, but I can use them. I have a one handed backhand and find some racquets to be mediocre or alright for one handed backhands (mostly due to balance). Prince Original Graphite OS is a pretty good racquet for one handed backhanders. My...

    Ball to the Eye

    Serve and Volley... the dangerous art. Anyways, went to serve had a ball coming maybe 40 MPH or faster. Went for the backhand volley framed it and the ball came straight into my eye. I think my eye might be fine but not sure. I have a slight headache and my eye is still a bit sore. At the time...

    I'm preparing for next years college tennis season. I want to come in strong, fit and prepared. I was curious about flexibility though. Should I stay away from making my lower body flexible and just stick with upper body? I remember something about Andre Agassi and saying that's why he's...

    Federer - Jumping One Handed Backhand

    I'm not sure but I feel since a lot of balls are flying high to his backhand, do what James Blake did. Jumping one handed backhand. I feel that might help him against Nadal. Federer tends to stay on the ground for backhands and only comes off the grand after he has struck the ball. Do you...

    New Love: Fischer

    I personally didn't like Fischer because the name, lack of racquet selections and because of other things. Before this I really loved Babolat and Wilson because of the selection and the popularity of the brands. Fischer is my new love, and a bit underrated. I'm demoing the Fischer M Speed Pro...

    Racquet Matching

    I'm planning to buy 2 or 3 racquets from Tennis-Warehouse. I was curious if you do Racquet matching? As in having the racquets be very similar (weight, balance point and such in exact)? Like all two or three racquets be exactly 340 grams. Instead of one being 340, the other being 350 and the...

    18x20 vs 16x18 pattern

    I was curious what the advantages or the disadvantages between the string patterns? A more open vs a very dense string pattern. I got a Wilson Hyper Pro Staff 6.1 Midplus 16x18 version and a 18x20 version. My 18x20 version just came in and I never used a 18x20 string pattern. Will I lose a...

    Gamma Stringer 16/17 Thoughts?

    Gamma Stinger 16/17 Thoughts? Gamma Stinger 16/17 So I tried this setup and I found I liked it, but how much different would it be from say a Luxilon Rough and Gut setup? Would I expect more power? I string my racquets down to 50-52 lbs.

    Specifications on Wilson HPS 6.1 Midplus

    I was curious on what the specifications are for this racquet? I can't find anything online that has swingweight, stiffness rating or such. The one I borrowed was a Wilson Hyper Pro Staff 6.1 Midplus -> Head Size: 95 sq. in. -> Weight: 12+ oz (?) -> String Pattern: 16x18 (I think?) -> Lenght...

    What type of string is this?

    I saw someone hitting with this weird gut... he said it was some type of gut from Germany. It was really soft and felt extremely good. It was a gray/greenish color and was really bouncy.
