    Bad stringer - the full story

    Can someone please help trying to understand what is going here. I'll give the short version Been getting a guy from the local club to string racquets last 7 years. Most of the time they are not the correct tension and in fact, they always almost usually feel exactly the same minus one pound +...

    Dark ages of tennis coming soon. Still can't believe Nadal won but let's face it, this is potentially his 2nd last slam win

    How long between the true "Next Gen"?

    By the time the big 3 retire, which will be 2022-2025, I think we will see the next batch of multiple slam winners or potential GOATs come through

    Djokovic should have been in the 2007 Wimbledon Final

    This match doesn't get discussed, nor is there any decent footage online. I remember Djok won the first set easily then had to take a MTO for blisters on his toes or ball of foot? At any rate, he was playing way better than Nadal and I think he should have won the match.

    Winning two slams 5 times in a row

    Fed will soon be overtaken by Nadal this year and Djokovic will most likely equal or surpass Nadal overall, but..... None of the two will ever accomplish the feat of winning two slams 5 times in a row, within 6 years. Fed also cant match Djok's post-prime peak, but when the two were in their...

    It'll be gone soon and there'll be a long wait before we see 3 GOATS playing at the same time. People on here don't deserve what we've witnessed.

    Arthur Ashe Stadium

    Is it really hot and humid in there now because of the roof trapping in the air or is it just a really hot summer...................or is Fed just old? Discuss

    Negative attitude towards tennis

    Been reading these boards for a while and I think this is the lowest point I've seen the forums at. Seems the only thing to do now is read endless (pointless) threads about how many slams a player will end up with then proceeding to start a defaming war towards said player. I'm going for...

    Why don't umpires have some sort of video recall to settle disputes over late out calls and whether it had an effect on their shot etc?

    You're not a true tennis fan if you hate either Fed, Nad or Djokovic

    Each one has something to offer to the game and it annoys me to see obvious trolling.

    Wilson NCode 95 16 x 18

    Recently went back to this treasure after using a Wilson Ncode 90 (asian) 330SW, 370g. Swings unbelievably easy with control and power. Precise and crisp feel. Anyone still own some of these and what do you string with?

    Djokovic needs to rethink his game

    He is a shadow of 2011. He loops the ball back with not much on it (a measure to counter Nadal game?) His forehand is the worst I've seen it in 3 years. No more DTL BH, it makes an appearance once every 2 or 3 matches, as opposed to when he would do it regularly. Thoughts?

    ATP Grand Slam point allocation

    Should the ATP reconsider changing runner-up points to 1500, instead 1200. 800 points between Champion and Runner-up seems pretty large. What if the two players who are neck and neck all year face each other in 4 slams per year. Say that one player wins all 4 but only by a game or two in...

    US Open 2013 Champion Del Potro

    - - - 2014: Roger Federer final year - - -

    I know it's a rule whenever Federer suffers a beating or heavy loss, an obituary is written for him. It's not the same as in 08 or 11. He hasn't won anything this year, and may only win in Hale the way he is playing. I think if he drops to #5 or lower he'll probably considering...

    2013 Australian Open Final - Djokovic vs Wawrinka

    Title says it. The level of play from both was the best in the whole tournament. Perhaps Fed would have dealt differently with Stan since he regularly schools him but Murray vs Djokovic is not worth the money
