    Dunlop Aerogel 3hungred: different stiffness rating

    I have a couple of Dunlop Aerogel 3hundred sticks which I bought a few months ago. The rated stiffness is 64 which correspond to the specs on the Dunlop website. However, my friend’s 3hundred stick has a 61 stiffness rating and the TW site also has 61 on their site. We bought our racquets from...

    Rome player interviews?

    Usually for Masters Series, there is a 'news' section of the site where player interviews are posted. I seem to have trouble finding it for the Rome tournament. Any help would be appreciated.

    Chela & Babalat

    Did Chela lose his Babolat sponsorship? Just watching the Chela/Henman match and noticed that his stringbed is free of any emblems.

    Roddick Cover-up RODDICK COVER-UP Tennis star Andy Roddick is being kept on a short leash by Reebok. He can't be caught on camera wearing anything but Reebok sportswear - or he risks losing his contract. But Thursday night, Roddick wore a Lacoste shirt to the Ocean Drive...

    Pure Control stringing...

    I have a Babolat Pure Control Team racquet from a customer who wants a hybrid. Anyone with experience with this racquet for 2-piece stringing? The holes are such that it is impossible to share a grommet unless you do the crosses from bottom to top which isn't a good practice to do. Any help...

    For the poor Canadians that didn't get to see the Agassi-Roddick or Agassi-Hewett matches because there was zero coverage offered by TSN, can anyone help us out?

    When is he NOT injured?! Always seems like he's hurt from a match. Yet, he's probably one of the fittest players on the tour.

    Player injuries....

    I suspect that a lot of injuries reported by players are fake ones. I know that Guga and Gaudio have withdrawn from Wimbledon with a hip and foot injury respectively. They haven't played any matches since the FO and seeing how their games are at a disadvantage on the slick grass, it makes me...

    Agassi & Roddick as doubles partners?! I'm shocked but it's good to see that Andre is doing what he has to do to get good preparation for Wimbledon. He should be able to get awesome setups from Roddick's serve but Roddick's suspect volleys will hamper the team as well...

    He's probably the only one in the top20 that can't speak English. Why is that? Seems like the other South Americans can speak decent English. It's probalby a win-win situation to learn it: more fan support, more endorsements on a global scope, etc.

    Hamburg Finals (semifinal spoiler)

    Federer vs Coria!!! Talk about a heavyweight championship bout. The hottest claycourt player versus the best all-court player. I think that if Federer plays up to his potential, he will win a close one but anything less won't cut it. I'm thinking of watching it live at 4am PST. :D

    Wilson Enduro Tour

    I was wondering if anyone could offer any feedback on the Wilson Enduro Tour string. There aren't any customer reviews/feedback on TW. Any ideas if it will be similar to Touch Turbo, ALU Power, or Gosen Polylon Comfort? It's up there in price, close to the ALU Power. Thanks.
