I used to hit with RDX500, this is one of the best racquet, easy on the arm yonex has made. There is a lot of feel and comfort using this racquet. I upgraded to RDS 001 MP, even at 98 sq. in. I still find minor arm pain the next day after long rallies.
Thanks for the info bookem. I'll probably go vacation by end of July for about 3 to 4 weeks. This is after 12 years, back then when I was still playing competitively. Just last week my 14 year old kid beat me on clay court 7-5, broke me on the last game. Well, I guess the transmission is...
When confidence overcomes choking. When you feel invincible with your racquet as if you can't miss. When you can only count the unforced errors and not the winners. Finally and most important IMO, when you don't feel pain the next day.
I'm planning to go on vacation by July. I don't want to have the same experience as drgeenthumb. I'll be staying in Quezon city. I know theres a lot of Pinoys in this forum, I wish I could have an invitation for a hit in your club. Guaranteed sweat with no surprise charges.
Try as much as you can to put the first serves in. Go for less risk shots. Let your opponent win the point instead of you trying to force a winner. Always remember that if its you who is closing the match or a set, he/she should be in a more pressured situation than you, he/she is more likely to...
Considering that the racquet angle is good on contact. It's not the grip that will give you topspin, it's the racquet path and racquet head speed at contact, JMac has a continental grip, but he could produce topspin.
Why did you switch? Did 1HBH hurt your elbow? 2HBH should be easier on your elbow.
My guess is its because your left hand is not used to it yet. It will slowly build muscle and then it will feel comfortable after sometime. Another thing is the ball might be pushing your racket, tighten your...
Short ball is an opportunity
1. Anticipate and move in right away.
2. for low balls, slice so the ball does not sit up, go DTL, go for the corner deep then approach, let him worry about his passing shot, instead of you missing the shot. High short balls go for the topspin winner, its worth the...
I've used both on my RDS001 at same tension 53 lbs, 18 ga.
Power: SPPP for me has more pop, felt softer, more power
Control:Big ace less pop, better control, more spin
Durability: Big ace a slight edge
Stifness: Big ace very minimal
You might be trying to hit an outright winner on the return and overhitting. Remember that you have to worry about the return first, track the ball closely, pick your spot to create an opening.
This is right.
Strings preference for every player is always gonna be different from one player to another. I used to use multi syn gut then the hype of polys made me switch, awesome ball control and spin. I tried hybrid too, but eventually I switch back to multis because of the feel when the...
