    Should "foot fault" rule be changed?

    No need for any warning. No advantage? :confused: Why not step into the court when you serve?

    Serena's interview on Good Morining America

    And we should excuse her cos she's a great athelete? :confused: She may be a great athelete but she'll never be a great champion. Do you think you would ever see Roger Federer behave like that? Roger Federer IS a GREAT CHAMPION.

    Serena probably knew she foot faulted

    Yes. She didn't react immediately. She had time to think before letting go on the linesperson.

    Was it a foot fault?

    Huh? So tennis games in future don't need rules. Just call the match with common sense? :shock:

    Cyber power and Cyber flash?

    CP or CF in mainsfor hybrid? I've been using CP 17 for the mains @ 56lbs and CF 17 for crosses @ 54lbs. The CP breaks after 4 hours of play. Will try switching to CF for mains and CP for crosses to see if that set-up lasts longer. Anyone tried the 2 different combos? Am also thinking of...

    Poly hybrid with poly

    How about ALU mains and Cyberflash crosses? Would this setup make any sense? It would certainly be cheaper than a full ALU job but would it be any better than a full Cyberflash job?

    Is Prince addressing the 03 Tour string breakage problem ?

    Anyone??? What about the Hybrids??? So, does anybody know anyone from Prince? What's their response to the string breakage problem on the O3 racquets? Besides using kevlar strings..of course. Anyone used a hybrid shark or hornet long enough to give feedback on durability of strings on those...

    Questions regarding these three 17g polys

    I previously used Prince Syntetic Gut Duraflex 16 to cross the ALU Power Rough 16L mains...the PSGD would break after about 8hours of play. Not a very economical option cos you would waste on stringing and have to cut off what is still very good condition mains. Would advise you to use a full...

    Is Prince addressing the 03 Tour string breakage problem ?

    It does chew up strings I put PSGD 16 on the O3 tour and it only lasts for about 3-4 hours. This means strings may break in the middle of the match. Very annoying and costly. So, moved to the Babolat APD. With the same string set up, the PSGD 16 lasts at least two to three time longer. Since...

    Is Prince addressing the 03 Tour string breakage problem ?

    Anyone have any experience on string durability on the O3 White??? Strings pop faster on the O3 Tour compared to other racquets :cry: . A very expensive situation...especially if you are using Luxillon Big Banger ALU Power. What's the situation like with O3 white or Hybrids? Can those...

    Prince O3 White

    Has anybody had the O3 White long enough to talk about how long strings last on the frame. O3 technology is notorious for chewing up strings. I wonder if Prince has address this with the O3 White or the new Hybrids.

    Babolat Aeropro Drive Crack?

    Thank, but the likelihood of that happeningt is probably very low, unless I can show that it's a common occurence with this type of racquet :(

    Babolat Aeropro Drive Crack?

    My son uses a Bobolat Aeropro Drive strung with Luxilon Big Banger @ 55lbs. He recently noticed a crack next to the gromet hole @ the 2 o'clock position. He's only been using the racquet for 3 months and hasn't thrown the racquet about. Could this be because of stringing? Or is this common...

    How can so many like thinner gauges and lower tensions?

    A lot of pros today use tensions of 55lbs and below. You can check the equipment logs(I remember it being posted in this forum before). I think it's got to do with the advent of new strings that enable control, even with lower tensions. The result being the ability to generate more power...

    Switching to Luxilon Big Banger?

    Ya, but it seems to be recommended more so on this board to drop tension for ALU Big Banger than other strings... Any opinions as to whether the crosses should be at higher tension than the mains since it is synthetic gut? Babolat seems to recommend with their hybrid set-ups that the...

    Switching to Luxilon Big Banger?

    Been using Pro Hurricane 16 Mains with PSGD 16 crosses strung at 57lbs/55lbs on the Aeropro Drive. Switching to Luxilon ALU Big Banger Power Rough 16L Mains with PSGD 16 crosses. Should I still decrease the Luxilon tension by 10% as recommended?

    I don't think there's anything wrong in using technology, as long as you can control it..with or without modification. Winning is more important than egos :)

    Question for G. Hillix

    What would your advice be for mains/crosses tension if I were using Babolat Pro Hurricane 16 for the mains and Prince Synthetic Gut Duraflex 16 for the crosses on an Aeropro Drive?

    Question for G. Hillix

    I noticed from the 2005 Pacific Life Open equipment log most pros string the mains a little bit higher than the crosses. Why is that?

    Aeropro vs. O3 TOUR

    My son has been using the O3 Tour for a month. He is 13, and plays competitively. Has a western forehand with a long swing. Prior to the O3 he was using the Prince DB850. With the O3, he was having trouble keeping the ball deep and it did not have enough pace. It allowed his opponents to...
