    Return after Torn Hip Labrum

    Has anyone here had a torn labrum in their hip repaired? How long did you take to get back to hitting? I had mine repaired in 2 places about 5 weeks ago and just got off crutches. Feels good to walk again, wish I could go hit some but I know I can't. Wont even be trying to get on court for 4...

    K-Swiss Defier Misoul & my wide-load feet.

    Wanted to add my 2 cents to the Misoul party since a few other TWers had tried them. Bought the K-Swiss Misouls off TW about 2 weeks ago. Got a chance to play 3 times in them, 2 hard court & 1 clay session, about 6 hours in total. Bottom line first: These are solid, classic feeling tennis...

    Fischer Magnetic Tour grommets?

    Has anyone found a source for these? I placed an order for 6 w/ TW a while ago, but they're on backorder w/ a "who knows when" type date... Checked most major online retailers, nothing doing with these... it seems Fischer grommets in general are hard to come by. Has anyone had better luck w/...

    Review: Wilson Trance All Court

    For the past 3 weeks I have been wearing the Wilson Trance All Court. For some background information, I have a rather wide, E-width foot with a higher arch and a lot of volume trough the middle--a very rectangular shape and admittedly hard foot to fit. For comparison's sake, I currently wear...

    Problem with "View Large" product image

    Is anyone else having trouble when you click on the "View Large" icon in any shoe product page? It takes me to another page, but no product image is displayed. Wondering if others are having this trouble too.

    How many calories do you burn in a normal day?

    Pretty much the title... how does one calculate how many calories you burn in a normal day, say w/o any extra exercise, just normal walking, talking, and sitting, etc.? I have heard on average it's 2000, 2500, 3000... clearly it has to be different for a 130 lb male w/ little muscle mass and a...

    Push-ups, pull-ups, and the shoulders.

    For the fitness experts out there, do you think doing various kinds of push-ups and pull-ups provide enough work for the shoulder joints to help reduce shoulder injuries in tennis? I am wondering if by doing exercises of this type, am I missing anything that other exercises would provide for...

    Lotto Raptor Syn-Pulse Review

    TW, A few of your reviewers of the Lotto Raptor Syn-Pulse commented that the toe box of this shoe really opened up after some initial break-in. If any of the reviewers are available, could they elaborate on this at all? Would they say that it opened up as much as a 1/2 size? Maybe a...

    Any new K-Swiss?

    International shipping newbie

    Could anyone explain the best way to ship a package internationally from the US? I've followed the debates/arguments on shipping from TW, but what about in general? Specifically I'm talking about shipping from US->UK. Nothing overly large or heavy, just a normal package, maybe size of a...

    Courier quotes Agassi about poly strings...

    Did anyone hear Jim Courier's quote last night about what Agassi said about poly strings? When they were testing out new Luxilon strings back in the day, Agassi strung some up for the first time, took it for a test drive, and told whoever (I believe he said the ATP), "You have to either make...

    Gamma Revelation 17 mislabel?

    TW, Your product description for Gamma Revelation 17 says it's 1.27mm in diameter. Yet if you look at the product package in the enlarged view, it clearly says 1.32mm on the package. That sounds like a 16 gauge diameter. Have there been some shenanigans in the graphics department? Which is...

    No-Ad Scoring or Super Tiebreak?

    If you had to chose a way to shorten matches and keep them to a reasonable time, would you rather have full 2 out of 3 sets w/ No-Ad scoring, or a 10-pt Tiebreak to decide the 3rd set?

    Super Tiebreak to decide NTRP matches?

    So just 2 years ago, I was playing 3 hour matches with full 3rd sets. This year it seems everyone has converted to the 10-point "super" tiebreak to decide the 3rd set in NTRP tournaments. Senior age-bracket tournaments don't seem to do this though. Is this a new USTA rule that NTRP...

    Outseam measurements on shorts

    TW, noticed on the new BB shorts you also listed the outseam measurement. Can i urge you to do this for all new shorts you add to your product line? Using only inseams makes it tricky to gauge how far down a short leg will fall because of the rise of the fly... but the outseam is always the...

    Visiting ATP Masters Cincinnati -- two big thumbs up

    I just got back from the ATP Masters Cincinnati. I went with the goal of seeing as many players as possible in person--either practicing or playing a match. I have to say, Cincinnati blew away my expectations... If you want to see players up close and personal, go as many days as you can. I...

    Is Chris Edwards the Survivorman?

    Come on man, fess up. Was that you in the Kalahari? Survivorman scales mountains, Chris tries to scale the local pier... or maybe you guys just have the same hair stylist? ;-)

    Who taught Roddick how to volley?

    No really, who did? Because he has some of the worst technique I can imagine a pro having. Why does he always look like he's falling down at the net? Is that actually a forehand grip he's using to hit volleys with? There's a reason volleys are supposed to look pretty... it means you're in...

    Head Extreme w/ burgundy paint & crossbar?

    Was at a tournament this weekend and saw a guy playing w/ a racket that had a Head Extreme-type paint job, yet it was dark red / burgundy and had a crossbar. Does anyone know what this racket is? I've never seen it before. I thought dark red was reserved for the Prestige. But the crossbar...

    Help with pull-ups

    So say you want to do pull-ups and don't have access to one of those cool machines that lets you set a certain amount of weight to assist you. All you have is yourself and a pull-up bar. Well, when you're starting out, especially if you weigh a good amount, it's pretty hard to do a lot of...
