    Would you ever buy a used/pre-owned racket?

    prices for premium 200-300$ frames are cut in more than half when they have the used/pre-owned label on them my main reservation is that the integrity of the frame is a big unknown how would i know that the previous owner has not dropped the racket and caused some internal damage to it which...

    "Favoritism is why Fed hates hawkeye so much" Gasquet match controversy

    are commentators allowed to make statements like these? the commie on the bulgarian Eurosport basically suggested in a not very subtle way that the reason Fed has always been vocal against the hawkeye system is because he knows that in a close call, the umpire will always take his side over...

    how long do you give Fed before he goes into "ultra decline" mode?

    i'm talking like he can't make the 2nd week in a slam consistently and is losing to some randoms at every major (3rd and 4th round) and is clearly a shell of his former self he's posted some really solid results in 2015 with those two slam finals and he's made two semis out of three slams in...

    why doesn't the better server win against the better returner in today's game?

    first, some context for this question jim courier himself as to why pitting the best server vs the best returner is a big mismatch in strengths, referencing the sampras vs agassi matchup keeping this in mind, why is it in today's game, the player with the better defense and return is...

    Fed's "match nerves"???

    one thing over the past couple years (probably since Wimby 2014) that's puzzled me is when people talk about Fed choking or tilting under pressure when playing Djoko in slam finals i've never heard anyone use the words choking and nerves so often to talk about Fed now that's confusing to me...

    i've been playing with the Wilson BLX Six-One 95 for about 5 years now until recently i thought of it as the holy grail in the tennis world (probably just too much TV advertising getting to me) long story short, i had to demo my dad's 100 sq. inch K-factor Endure for a few days while...

    Will Stan become a nightmare matchup for Djoko?

    now that he's beaten Djoko in slams twice, do you think Stan will become a kind of mental block or nightmare matchup in future matches even outside of slams? will it open the floodgates for the Swiss or was this final a kind of anomaly that probably won't be repeated in the future should they...

    Went into full "micro management mode" meltdown need some advice...

    so this is something that has been a recurring problem not just in tennis but in a lot of things basically you know when you're free swinging, not really thinking about how you're doing it just going off of feel and instinct, and then you suddenly decide that the next game or point is REALLY...

    What is it with Nole and crowds?

    why is it that most of the time he plays in grand slams and even some masters tournaments, there's always an element of antagonism and tension between Nole and the crowd? it's almost like he's never quite the crowd favorite, never quite the guy that's being cheered for all even today, notice...

    Is Gasquet the cannon fodder of the top 10?

    Which top player has he beaten in the last several years? Does he ever "surprise" you by pulling an amazing upset, Wawrinka/Dolgopolov style? He's not even putting up a fight FFS, he's just casually tanking while Fedor just strolls by. At least MAKE HIM WORK FOR IT! Can't watch these sh1tty...
