    Connors+Lendl: the perfect groundstroke

    So, by that logic, you’ve calling Connors himself an idiot? From his own admission he definitively said he uses a “continental type” grip.

    Jimmy Connors' Prince Mono

    I recently acquired an Experimental Mono, and it has a 4 5/8 grip size. It is different from my three other regular monos, in that the little weight inside the handle is in hardened silicon. The regular monos had a loose weight because the silicon melted into ooze. I had to get the three regular...

    stringing wilson t2000 rackets

    Hi... I recently fell in love with a T2000, and made some inquiries around town. There is one stringer who claims to string these, but he asks between $50 and $60 to do the job. Is this a fair asking price? P.S. sorry for resurrecting an old thread...

    Murray- will everyone finally shut up about him?

    It's just plain and simple... Murray will never be in the same league as champs like Federer and Nadal—both who are GREAT. The truth is—Murray's GOOD, but NOT great, and never will be great. It's sad, but true. Sorry Murray fans. The English will have to wait longer for a great one. But the...

    Wall Street Journal Calls Murray a Pusher

    I wouldn't have so much a problem with Murray if he wasn't such a crybaby all the time. He acts like a spoiled child. If he could just learn some class it might earn him a bit more respect. He should drop the arrogant posturing, shut his trap, and play the game.

    Lead up two-hander

    Where should a two-fisted (two-handed both sides) flat hitter lead up their racquet for best control? Don't need to know exactly how much lead, but would appreciate advice for location of lead. Thanks.

    Del Porto might have won the slam but Murray is still the better player

    Murray's gig is up. Top 25 players are beginning to figure him out. He will lose more and more frequently. He plays like a puss. This entire thread is pathetic. Delpo is far and beyond better than Murray. I look forward to Delpo mopping up the stain that is Murray every time they play...

    Why so much Murray hate?

    He's a crybaby, and acts like a spoiled brat, and thinks he is the world's best... it's not right to think you're the world's best if you can't win a slam. Let's see him win a few slams and then he can talk the trash. And he IS a pusher. And it DOES hold ground. Finally some lesser players are...

    my letter to the Tennis Channel

    True that... I like the angle as is... the last thing I want is to know a large camera is moving back and forth. Could prove to be a bulky distraction for players as well.

    Del Po is so much fun to watch

    Anyone watching his match against Andy Roddick hear the chair umpire mispronouncing Del POTRO's name, "Del Portro"? Talk about blatant disrespect for knowing how to say the finalists' names. It just goes to show how stupid, uninformed, and ignorant some of the umpires can be.

    Who else doesn't want a Federer vs Roddick/Nadal USO Final ?

    It would be refreshing to see a new rivalry in tennis that doesn't involve Federer and Nadal... I have a feeling that Del Potro will be poking holes in the grand slam finals and might win one or two next year.

    Simon is one of my favorites... I've been really frustrated with him lately. He seems to beat himself these days. Don't know what's up. :confused:

    Just to keep it in the conversation on Fed...

    This is an amazing article. Some of you might have read it, or know of it, but it is truly well written and offers a stunning portrait of Federer. It was written in 2006, but I find it kind of relevant today:
