    What is it with dbls champs/specialists/winners/dominators/craftsmen/rebels/conservatives/wiseasses/intelligensia/peak-players... Why couldn't they put out Jordo and Maximum Purcell? Why the heck specialise in dbls if they're just gonna wilt first sign of the sun?

    Accepting that you cannot use poly strings

    TB Soft was reasonable I seem to remember from a while back. It was grooved/shaped and at low tension was/is somewhat ok for anyone avoiding polys. But again like all polys not to be used for too long before restring

    Accepting that you cannot use poly strings

    Yep am a fan of Velocity, full bed @50 (y) Interesting you locate the deciding point, the pain point that is... in the joints! So strange that poly can reach so deep. It's quite often beyond muscular and more a tendon type of thing and more likely to be felt afterwards, post-match, than during.

    Odds To Win Men's Australian Open 2023

    Who cares? The bookies care, rhe betting companies care, the computing services behind the software bet markets are at work on it, making adjjustments, the phone apps offer the AO options below the current tournaments, the question is bettable now. Big tournaments become a thing way before TTW...

    ATP Finals - Doubles Final - M. Pavić N. Mektić vs R. Ram J. Salisbury

    They're not household names who spark a response are they? (There again does ruud?) Dbls shld be filmed differently. The top down view while fine for singles (and for pong) shld be replaced by net post mounted cams capturing the subtle volley work and up close face to face battle. Heck put a...

    Muzziah Manor – followers of the Mettled Master of Magnanimity

    I mean Pospisil plays challengers, Tenys Sandgren, verdasco - if y'v liked seeing The Muzz play then you will continue to enjoy seeing him play. In the article linked above what I find troubling is that in effect he is saying he will "try harder". THat is worrying. For he has to do more with...

    Todays pro is far more likely to interact with the crowd (Kyrgios), wave to them to give it up for impressive play (yngr players Musetti, Sinner, Alcaraz...), or talk to them (the on-crt after-match interview is a feature of many more matches today), or even shushing them (Shapo take a bow)...

    Oic, yes so that is more that twistweight and vibration frequency? For sure some racquets just jar and wobble and it's like nothing can be done for them. Or some so stiff they're an icepick to the elbow. Aux praps adds elements of depression, compression, deflection, in order to mitigate the...

    Hitting partner doesn't play like he practices

    Failing getting the testosterone levels checked, what you are observing here is the distance between practice and play. It has always been thus. You are not as good as you practice, you are only as good as your gameplay. Sorry, the score matters.

    Accepting that you cannot use poly strings

    But poly invites harder hitting. It's stiff and dead. The ability to go all out on your shots is a done deal. And of course the addditional spin makes it all the sweeter. So we all do. Given that, if you frame the ball at this increased racquet speed, if you mishit, if you face an equal...
