    Back in Tennis

    Yesterday, I came back from resting my elbow for about a month. I had TE/GE (one of those). It was the greatest feeling ever to play tennis for the first time in a month. For those who are suffering from TE/GE, rest it and you will be rewarded. Goodluck, and stay away from poly.

    I serve with semi-western?!?!?

    It's hard for me to use continental. I use semi western to serve, and instead of pronation, i rotate the other way. It creates an odd spin on the ball. My friend says i serve like a lefty, but i'm a righty. Is this normal?

    There's this rule when driving that you cant keep any dangerous objects in your car, but must put it in your trunk. Does this apply to tennis rackets too?

    Strung Nblade 98 w/ og sheep micro

    I strung my 18x20 pattern nblade with og sheep micro at 53lbs and it still feels tight. I havent tried playing with it, but the strings dont even budge. Normally i use stamina and 55lbs would be too loose. Does og sheep need to be strung lower?
