    2019 RG QF: Federer vs Wawrinka

    Love it. Yeah I remember a David Bowie quote something to the effect of, "When in doubt use overwhelming irrationality." That is Stan as a player. He can simply cudgel the ball in a way that takes the racquet out of their games... it doesnt always work but when it does its like... "That's not...

    RG 2019 4R: Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Stan Wawrinka

    Im seeing this... Stan doesnt play rational tennis and I love both Stan and Tsisi as players. Im very happy with the result as Stan absolutely taught Tsisi a great lesson. It was a crucial one. He needs to become a great clutch returner and this was the moment that made that need crystal...

    2019 RG QF: Federer vs Wawrinka

    Stan has a gear that is very scary to anyone who approaches tennis in a rational way. After this win Stan might have something special and irrationally awesome for this next round. It isnt like Stan hasnt played Fed in a QF of the French before. I have no rational reason for backing Stan in...

    RG 2019 4R: Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Stan Wawrinka

    stan will come out like a battering ram... legs not the best but watch him hit every ball justa little harder than humanly possible. He knows he never wants it to be a running match

    RG 2019 4R: Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Stan Wawrinka

    one cant teach the mental thing and he is a bit of an artist... he loves to play in interesting ways. That's what gets you through to lifting big trophies

    RG 2019 4R: Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Stan Wawrinka

    for any other young player Stan's efforts would have crushed their hopes but Tsisi is composed... he's younger but Stan has the guns and at his age And wow touch from stan

    RG 2019 4R: Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Stan Wawrinka

    Because nobody strikes the ball as hard or with such "Elan"... also greatest shorts in tennis history

    RG 2019 4R: Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Stan Wawrinka

    I agree but no TB does favor the Greek Freak and he's got the tennis brain to know it

    Stan will bring it if he comes through
  17. Backhanded Compliment

    RG 2019 4R: Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Stan Wawrinka

    This match shows a lot about Tsisi ... really a shame they have to meet in r4 (edited) Stan has those big guns to hit through the court in a way that few can (Delpo on the FH can). Those clean points wear on Tsisi in this 5th set
  18. Backhanded Compliment

    RG 2019 4R: Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Stan Wawrinka

    Best items you found at thrift stores (Goodwill)?

    That my friend is the main reason I check the thrift stores... besides the 5k+ bespoke pinstripe suit (holland and sherry cashmere cloth) that Im having re-tailored to suit me the best Ive found was a pretty nice PS85, Taiwanese edition.... an earlier one strung with full vs gut. I can wail...

    RG 2019 4R: Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Stan Wawrinka

    Im a big fan of Tstsi but Stan is a different animal and he's hungry. I think it will be an important lesson for the young Greek.

    When will Tsitsipas take over as No. 1?

    he's still incomplete... needs more bulk/age for his backhand to reach authority level 1) 2020 or 2021 Australian Open 2) after 3) S. Zverev 4) that's just too difficult to answer

    When I first came back to the game I used the Babolat Roddick 27 in. and ran into the same problems... Ive never had elbow problems before or since. TC100 has similar power but its more responsive so you have to unlock the power more than with the babolat. Better touch, feel, precision etc...

    Does anyone remember the Head Graphite Pro?

    Its a USA made one... dang does it have great topspin potential for a 90 sq inch 18x20 pattern frame with dead syngut that is decades old. Volleys like a dream too.

    Heavy and open pattern or less heavy and dense pattern ?

    yeah seems like you are trying to ask the impossible from a physics point of view. I used to be over 13oz so the 12.63oz set up I have now seems pretty light weight.
