    Dealing with a player with no sportsmanship

    To be fair, one of the reasons his schedule is so flexible is because he doesn't have a car, so he's limited to playing only with others that he knows with cars (public transportation in our city is pretty ****ty, and well covid makes the uber/lyft stuff iffy still). So afaik I'm one of only 3...

    Dealing with a player with no sportsmanship

    Yeah unfortunately I also knew him before outside of tennis, and we also take group lessons from the same coach so I end up playing with him. And sometimes I just want to have a quick last minute hit and he's pretty flexible with his schedule.

    Dealing with a player with no sportsmanship

    There's a player I hit with that has no sense of sportsmanship whatsoever that just infuriates me. I usually beat him but it's always a struggle holding it together mentally. What he does: 1: Bad line calls. As long as a ball touches a like he'll instantly call it out, no benefit of the...

    No I meant inside the reel, there's like little strands coming off the string when i pull it out of the reel.

    Introducing Grapplesnake USA!!!

    @Grapplesnake USA Official I wonder if there's a quality control issue with the Silver GameChanger reels? My reel seems to have a lot of fraying, like thin strands that are coming off the string already.

    Tips/Critique on my serve?

    So I can't say that I've done a cartwheel before. So which part of my body should I be thinking of moving first when I start the forward motion?

    Tips/Critique on my serve?

    Ngl, I had to look up those throwing motions, I don't have the faintest clue how baseball throwing motions are like or that there was a difference lol

    Tips/Critique on my serve?

    Any tips for keeping my right arm in that 90 degree bend? I try it but it doesn't seem like my natural throwing position starts off like that for some reason hm

    Awesome! Just ordered another reel of Game changer but in silver this time!

    Introducing Grapplesnake USA!!!

    Just outta curiosity, how do you think GameChanger would do in a hybrid with Irukanji as the cross, or would it perform better on its own

    Introducing Grapplesnake USA!!!

    Played a best of 3 set match today with the Game Changer strings. Strings still felt really good, though the tension loss was bothering me a bit because the strings didn't have the same snap back anymore. I felt like I hit a bit more shots out than usual due to the tension loss. Will try to...

    Introducing Grapplesnake USA!!!

    I just had a quick hitting session with the Game Changer String. Initial thoughts: -Very good spin, definitely in the same tier as the CES Neon Dust/Liquid Dust hybrid. Can't really tell if it was more or less spin compared to the hybrid, since I mostly hit flatter anyways. -Very good feel...

    Wow, significantly higher, thats seems unreal considering how much spin the CES Neon hybrid already produced lol, and its even softer too!

    @Grapplesnake USA Official How does Game Changer compare with CES Neon Dust/Liquid Neon Dust in terms of spin production/tension maintenance?

    Introducing Grapplesnake USA!!!

    I'm almost done with my second set of reels of CES Hybrid. I'm kinda curious about trying Alpha or Tour Sniper though. I love the spin and the grip of the CES strings on the ball. However I'm wondering if either Alpha or Tour Sniper might be more suitable for me because I generally hit...

    Wanting to quit playing tennis

    Like 1-2h a week. I get what you're trying to say that I haven't really practiced enough to make the lessons stick in. But then that just makes it seem like it was a waste of time and money for me to take lessons when I can't even learn it properly and still can get beaten by someone who's...

    Wanting to quit playing tennis

    Before Coronavirus? I'd play like 5 hours of tennis a week or so. I feel like I never have this mindset when I'm playing someone who's equally as good as me or better too....

    Wanting to quit playing tennis

    That sounds like me, but more like 12 years instead of 20 years....I know the lessons don't magically make me better but it's also not like the only time I play tennis are during lessons. I also play lots of matches and tournaments outside of lessons....IT just makes me feel like I've wasted so...

    Wanting to quit playing tennis

    I've been playing tennis for many years and have taken many lessons. I play with a friend of mine who hasn't played anywhere near the same amount nor received the same amount of instruction who I usually beat. However every time I lose a set, or a best of 3 match against him, it just makes me...

    Head keeps dropping on serve

    No matter what I do, my head keeps dropping on my serve. Ive tried lifting my tossing arm up but I still end up dropping head when I go to hit the ball. Any other tips for keeping head up while serving? Would jumping and using my legs on serve help with keeping my head up?

    Serve speed based more on strength or technique?

    So I've played with the RF97 for the past 2-3 years. My ground strokes with it are fine but my serve has always been a bit lacking. Then I recently tried out a lighter racket, the Clash 98 and I suddenly felt like my serves were a lot better since I felt like I could swing the racket faster...

    Official Wilson Clash thread

    I've played with the RF97 ever since it came out, so like a good 2-3 years now, and have played quite a few of long 3 hour 3 set matches with it before. It's just mostly the serves that I can't seem to get as much racket head speed with, but my ground strokes, slice and volleys feel amazing...

    Official Wilson Clash thread

    Hmm I'll definitely start working out a lot more. Given that it's just a 31 gram difference between the RF97 and the Clash 98, how long do you think it could take to build up the extra strength to use the RF97 more freely? I can't say that I understand how that 31 gram difference makes one...

    Official Wilson Clash thread

    You have no idea how true this is. Serving with the RF97 actually hurt my shoulder before, so for the longest time I thought it was my serve technique that was wrong and I spent so many hours trying to fix every little thing. It wasn't till I started doing resistance band exercises for my...

    Official Wilson Clash thread

    I mostly lose games with my RF97 due to my serve being weaker. I feel like the Clash 98 would help my serve immensely....but at the same time I don't want to lose that heavy penetrating ball from the RF97 since that's what's been keeping me competitive in matches as well.
