    The one that got away from Rafa - Australian Open 2013

    He lost to Zeballos in Viña Del Mar if I remember correctly so no way

    Yonex Ezone 2022 AO

    Paint job looks alright, maybe a bit conservative. I like the futuristic look of the 2020 version better but no gripes with this one.

    Did you buy a new racquet in 2021!

    Bought a new Speed MP Black in April, sold it together with my white Speed MPs in September, felt too sluggish sometimes. Bought 2 barely used Ezone 98 2020 as a replacement and have been using them since with good success. As an impulse buy I also got 2 new Prince TXT 290 since I’m a big fan...

    Tsitsipas needs surgery

    I not a great fan of his personality but tenniswise he’s ten times more interesting to watch as Med and Zverev. Hope he comes back soo, same goes for Thiem.

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    Absolutely. This frame strung with Hyper G provides loads of feedback, doesn’t feel muted at all.

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    I have the chance to grab a cheap 100T Textreme from 2015 (the orange and black one). Is there a huge difference to the current 290 gram version with Twaron?

    Moya and Ferrero in Hall of fame

    I didn’t even know that there was a Tennis HOF. To me the whole thing is a very American concept (in sports at least) and serves foremost as a marketing/engagement tool. The English and German soccer leagues didn’t even have HOFs until very recently.

    2021 Vienna Open SF: Alcaraz Garfia vs Zverev

    I would love seeing Alcaraz beating Zverev, but unlike Berretini (bh) Zverev has no major holes in his game and is a better defender. But if he’s too passive and his serve lets him down, there will be chances for the Spaniard. I enjoy Alcaraz’ game so much more so I’m rooting for him to win

    Who all has been playing with the Graphene 360+ Speed Pro or MP?

    I’ve been using the MP since its release. Excellent frame all around, I just wished for a bit more maneuverability sometimes. Works best with poly strung at 51 lbs max. I’ve been testing the Ezone 98 lately and like it better for my 2hbh and the easy power it provides. It also comes through the...

    Tennis Warehouse: Head Boom MP (Prototype 2021) Racquet

    Specs on the Pro variant look promising. If they use the Bianchi blue as main color I’m out though

    I know it's extremely improbable but hit me up if you happen to be there and wanna play. My level is around 4.0

    *** Long Live The Radicals ***

    I am really curious about the new 360+ MP but the PJ is a bitter pill to swallow. Any chance they release an alternative PJ midterm? They didn’t for the 360 MP, did they?

    Head Speed MP (360+ & Older Gens) Official Thread

    Looking at some of the Head offerings I think it has to be Lynx since it’s rounded and seems to be 1,20 mm strong?!

    Head Speed MP (360+ & Older Gens) Official Thread

    Any idea which string Head uses for their new & pre strung racquets? I bought a new black Speed MP a month ago and it came with a black string. Often these factory strings are garbage but 4 hours in I think I like it better than Hyper G which I normally use in my Speed MPs. Feels really...

    2015 TT 100P to 2021 Gravity Tour ?

    What about the 2019 T100p? It might be a tack stiffer but it’s still a very comfortable frame, I actually prefer the more connected feeling of the 2019 version. Gravity Tour is probably one of the sweetest feeling offerings out there, really plush. But it’s more head heavy and if you loose the...

    proton tennis ball machine

    Yeah, this should work for hardcourts, not sure about clay though.

    How can I get the most out of my private lessons before a tournament?

    I would keep it as simple as possible, nothing hurts you more on a tennis court than overthinking. Overweight guy -> make him run, the longer the exchange the better, throw in some drop shots Tall guy -> feed him some low slices Guy with one handed backhand -> high, spinny balls etc. These...

    How to improve my service?

    All in all I'm happy with my serve, sometimes my ball toss is a bit too low as you will see in the video below. But is there any part of my service motion that I should definitely work on? Thanks for any advice.

    Head Gravity

    Yeah, that’s what I did...just received my racquets and checked balance specs with a table and a ruler. Values seem to match, so there was no error. The demo racquet and a second hand Gravity Tour I played with had unstrung balances around 33cm that’s why I was sceptical about the rather head...

    Head Gravity

    I also ordered a Gravity Tour with matching service. These are specs I got from TWE: Schläger 1 : 306 289 31,5 Schläger 2 : 307,8 290 31 Schläger 3 : 306,6 290 31 Schläger 4 : 305,4 285 31,2 Schläger 5 ...

    Thank you, I’ll talk to Spinfire directly. In the meantime manual mode works just fine as @blablavla suggested.

    Spinfire Pro 2 - HCAL Error 1 - Remove Safety Bolt

    Hi everybody, after finishing a sequence of balls this morning I put my machine in sleep mode. When I wanted to reinitialize I received the above error message. I’ve been using the unit for one and a half months now, so this can‘t be related to any safety bolts. When I called my dealer he...

    Siboasi 4015 Tennis Ball Machine

    Why is this thing so heavy compared to other internally oscillating machines like the Spinfire and despite having an lithium battery?

    Textreme Tour 100p Playtest Video, Just For Fun...

    That's the kind of hitting session I hate to rhythm, just senseless ball bashing. Great racquet nonetheless

    Raw feeling not muted

    The Prince 100p 2019 strung at a lower tension will feel very connected, just the right blend of stiffness and flex.

    360+ Speed MP vs regular 360?

    Very good points made in the video above especially regarding string tension. I strung my 360+ Speed MP with Hyper G 16l at 55 lbs the first time. The racquet sounded kinda pingy and I added lead thinking that the frame lacked mass in the head. Second string job I tried 50 lbs and the racquet...

    My take on the Volkl V8 Pro

    The TT100p I played with was strung with a 1,25 mm gauge hence some of the differences I noted may be due to the string setup. In general I found the TT100p to be more stable due to the higher twistweight, blocking shots and redirecting pace is a pleasure with this racquet. I felt very connected...

    My take on the Volkl V8 Pro

    Played with a demo stick this morning strung with Lynx 1.20. Very accessible racquet, easy power but not overwhelming, moves through the air very fast, definitely more manouverable than the txt tour 100p I was testing alongside. First serves were great and I even managed to hit some aces which...

    Artengo TR 990 Pro

    @topspn Can you tell us something about the grip shape? Is it more roundish, Wilson-like or squarish like the old Head Prestiges? Do they run bigger? Thanks!
