    That's too bad, too far away for West Coast ppl to commute and then head to Indian Wells afterwards.

    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.

    Federer Ljubicic

    There were some amazing passing shots by Federer when Ivan rushed the net. You can see the wicked curve he puts on the ball to get it inside the sidelines during the down the line shots. After the match, I saw Federer's parents and Phil Knight (Mr. Nike) outside chatting with each other.

    Fabrice Santoro wearing Asics

    I think Nike is considered the best shoe by the pros. Grosjean, Haas, Stepanek, Ljubicic, and Santoro all wore Nikes at the US Open even though they don't get paid to wear their stuff.

    Fabrice Santoro wearing Asics

    He can wear anything he wants if he doesn't have an exclusive shoe sponsor. Maybe all the hundreds of pairs of Oscillates that he stocked up on is running low. :D

    Donald Young

    And he's got quite the temper on him. I was watching him play Sam Querrey in Vancouver and he was cursing and throwing his racquet like a brat.

    soft poly that amazing???

    I really like the TCS as well. Even the 17 gauge (1.20) is more durable than I thought.

    Has anyone tried the Polyfibre tcs?

    I've tried TCS 1.20 and it's very soft and offers very good bite on the ball. Probably the softest poly out there.

    Daddy, will you tell me about Glucosamine?

    I found that liquid glucosamine worked a lot more effective than in pill form. i.e. Synflex, Flexicose, etc.

    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.

    Andre Agassi sighted at UCLA!

    Seems as though he's just happy making the opponent suck air and not winning the point outright. It's more risky but once he gets an opening I think he should put the ball away and end the point.
