    Can old players still play well?

    i play against an 80+ year old every now again in doubles. guy never misses a shot or a serve. when i mean never, i actually mean it. i think he put one volley into the net once and it was at his feet with pace

    Federer was lucky to get by '04 and '09 Wimbledon Roddick

    same thing could be said for soccer. Something happened between 2010-2012 that made most sports unbearable to watch. Commercialization or extreme money sent around and the life of the sport sent to the grave

    Why Tennis Balls are an Environmental Disaster

    Moral of story is that plastics are being disposed of in far greater quantities than what tennis is producing.

    To customize....or not to customize....that is the question...

    I put kimony techni leather grip on every single racket ive ever owned. I probably have bought a dozen of them by now. I cant use anything else. I know this changes the rackets specs considerably. If the racket is garbage with a kimony grip then its garbage to me unfortunately

    Switching from full poly to multi/poly and overhitting

    i have some hyperG soft that i never strung with. I can try a full bed of that next. I also switched rackets from rf97 to a vcore pro 330g, which should help mitigate arm pain. I have been playing with multi/poly set up on the yonex hitting 5 out of the last 7 days and no arm pain whatsoever. I...

    Does Dominic Thiem win another Slam?

    Thiem is finnish. a devastating wrist injury to a ohbh is game over. look at del po, guy could barely recover from a wrist injury to his non-dominate hand that screwed his backhand.

    the only way to beat nadal in his prime was to attack his forehand. it was the only thing that broke down under pressure. shouldn't be 10/10 elasticity imo

    Would you rather have 4 Majors all on hard court, or all on grass/clay?

    grass tennis is the most interesting having played on all the surfaces. i would play on grass my entire life if i had the opportunity. next would be clay but i have never played on red clay only the garbage they use in the states. hard courts should be irrelevant in the grand scheme of things...

    Would any of the big three turn down $500 million-plus to leave the ATP?

    you claimed the cup is the epitome of pure greed. the cup got canceled due to covid regardless of the circumstances. the could have had the cup in any number of weeks where nothing was happening. that would be pure greed. but, alas the cup didn't happen in 2020 and pure greed didn't triumph

    Would any of the big three turn down $500 million-plus to leave the ATP?

    If the laver cup is a total greed machine tournament they can reschedule it around those tournaments. I guess they decided in the end it was better off waiting a year and losing out on all that money. That article was posted in april, novak hosted his covid cup in june. Why couldnt fed host his...

    Alcaraz is up to #4 in the ATP rankings.

    2014 or 2016 was the end of tennis depending on your perspective

    Bouzkova wins her 1st title in Prague while making zero winners. A first in a final?

    according to the stats it was more like 1 winner per 3.5 UE. It was funny watching the highlights. Potapova hits a brilliant winner then next clip bouzkova is up another 2 games

    Why Tennis Balls are an Environmental Disaster

    pretty much everything today uses an inordinate amount of plastic. I work in an immunology lab and we fill up a 60 gallon garbage bin at least once a week with plastics. We cant recycle it because it is biohazard waste. Sure, research is important but is the amount of plastic we burn through...

    Would any of the big three turn down $500 million-plus to leave the ATP?

    Pure greed? At least fed had the common sense to cancel his greed cup during covid in 2020 compared to novak who hosted the covid cup

    Bouzkova wins her 1st title in Prague while making zero winners. A first in a final?

    Watched the highlights, awful stuff. They show most of potapovas winners but the scoreline is heavily favoring bouzkova

    Would any of the big three turn down $500 million-plus to leave the ATP?

    Reminds me of trump donating his presidential salary. I doubt he ever did it, but just the fact that 400k/yr means anything to anyone when he is stealing billions is hilarious to me

    I wouldn't say Alcaraz is finished, but is he not as good a player as we initially thought?

    just a spanish chang if you ask me. winning tournaments as a teen then drifting off into obscurity
