    NCAA rule against USTA play?

    Hey guys, just kind if wondering if there's a rule stating that a Division 3 athlete currently on a roster can't play other organized sports while in season. I have a guy that wants to play on my USTA team, but he's currently in season. I've been told by another team captain that he can't play...

    USTA Team Violating NCAA Regulations???

    Hey guys, I'm kind of curious about this, but are there any NCAA regulations barring a coach of a DIII college team playing on the same USTA roster as one of his current players? I'm running a 4.5 team in Pennsylvania and one of my players (the coach) said he couldn't play, because one of his...

    IG Prestige Pro VS Graphene Speed Pro

    I've actually been playing with the Youtek Prestige Pro for 3 years now and have loved it, but my Head rep brought me a bag of the new Graphene demo's and I immediately fell in love with the way the Speed Pro plays. It feels amazing on my groundstrokes, crisp at the net, and solid on the serve...

    4.5 Adult League Shenanigans!

    So I run a 4.5 team in Central Pa District of middle states. This year they introduced a new scheduling format for the league in order for the teams to play more matches in the regular season. There are 8 teams so everyone plays each other once in the first round of the regular season. After...

    Video: Hitting with former D1 #1

    That's literally what I just said. I said that this was a key difference between players of different levels. That's the same thing as imbalance in competiton. Anyway, the point is that the OP is probably a very good player and he's playing a much better player. That's why the ball was landing...

    Video: Hitting with former D1 #1

    The thing I noticed the most was when the D1 player was on the side closest to the camera. The OP's shots were mostly landing inside the service line and the D1 player was putting every ball back with pace and above all else, great depth. I think that's a big difference between players of...

    Natural gut in prince o3 silver

    I got a racket from a client last night and he had supplied his own string which was the Wilson Champion's Choice. He wanted the natural gut on the mains and the luxilon on the crosses which would have been fine if his racket frame wasn't 118 sq in. It takes 22 feet for the mains and the gut...

    Sanctioning A Tournament

    If I wanted to start my own Open Division Tournament, how do I get the USTA to sanction it?

    Here's an idea - play at your level!!!

    I played on a 5.0 and 4.5 team this past summer as a rated 4.0. I went 6-0 at 4.5 and 2-2 at 5.0. These wins were in doubles against legitimate 5.0 doubles teams and my partner was a 4.5. Some people are just rated incorrectly. I didn't even play a 4.0 match this past summer. Needless to say I...

    Could 2012 be the year that Nadal retires?

    I'm thinking that whoever has a good Davis Cup final at the end of the year (Rafa/Delpo) and actually hoists the cup is going to be a major contender for grand slams next year. It's such a big confidence boost and it definitely is what Rafa needs right now.

    Grigor Dimitrov

    He looks up to Sampras, but it's been quoted on several occasions that Edberg was his idol growing up. As this is the most impressionable time for a tennis player, it's no wonder that he copied some of Edberg's idiosyncrasies.

    Will Rodgers be the best QB ever?

    This is my third straight year of having Rodgers on my fantasy football team and I'm poised for a second championship in 3 years. He's had three great years and it's possible that his best years are ahead of him. And I'm not too worried that he's 28, because he didn't play for like 3 years as he...

    Jobs in the tennis world?

    Funny story. One of the tennis pro's in my area is infamous for breaking up families. He's slept with at least two married women who had three or more children. Such a ridiculous stereotype, but I guess it got that way somehow. Plus, if you want to actually make a good amount of money, you...

    Men's Tennis PSAC Conference

    I would say Millersville has the strongest team now. Bloom is a close second and Kutztown is nowhere near as deep as they were last year and a far cry from 3 years ago.

    Chris Evert is a crappy commentator

    John McEnroe is an insightful commentator. Evert is a tool like Gilbert and Cahill.

    How close to the lines do you guys aim?

    I employ the aim small, miss small method. I pick spots about 2x2 feet rather than larger areas

    To the Pros on this site: Analysis of Schiavone's game

    I spent the entire winter trying to improve my leg strength and footwork. So far it's paying some real dividends. I'm moving to the ball quicker and I have more time to set up on my groundstrokes and volleys.

    Can A Chick Learn A Kick?

    Cilic, Djokovic, and Roddick all have great kickers. It's like comparing apples to oranges by saying Stosur has a better kicker than male players.

    espn's chris fowler's comments

    He's ESPN's every sport guy. He can't be expected to put forth his own insight except what's put in front of him on the teleprompter. I think he was trying to find a correlation on the behavior of Tipsarevic and then Lopez the very next night. He was wrong about Stan. The guy tried, but he's...

    How do you antecipate shots

    If you're playing a lower level, like 4.5 or below, and that's just an estimate, the toss gives away a lot about what kind of serve it's going to be and which direction it's going in.

    Sampras or Roddick?

    Connors played forever and at a high level. He also has the tour record for most total tournament wins. He was a machine. He has to have the record.

    Finger Tips -Cracked and Blistered

    Where do you live? I'm having the same problem, because it's freezing cold and dry outside. My fingers are cracked and blistered and it hurts very bad when I swing a racket. I started putting lotion on at night and wearing socks over my hands when I sleep. It's been working pretty well so far...

    Has anybody watched the movie Balls Out: Gary the Tennis Coach?

    Yeah, definitely the most entertaining tennis movies I've ever seen. Although it only has Wimbledon to go up against. I thought some of the stuff was ridiculously funny like the midget part with Randy Quaid going I like em short.
