    A more durable Element???

    What about Signum Pro Firestorm? I've tried both and feel like it plays pretty similar to Element (even has a similar color). Edit: I should add the durability of Firestorm is probably on par with Element (as in, not much better). However, it is much cheaper so more cost efficient from a...

    Someone recently matched the fastest officially recognized serve of all time...

    Lol, ok yea def looks like the ADF serve isn't legit. Even Rafa at 142 mph doesn't seem right.

    Someone recently matched the fastest officially recognized serve of all time...

    I was browsing the Wiki page on the fastest recorded tennis serves and something stood out to me immediately: Apparently, Davidovich Fokina tied Isner as the fastest serve recognized by the ATP at 157.2 mph?? I can't seem to find...

    Knees Over Toes Guy?

    I signed up for it for a month. There are some good exercises, but imo you can find plenty of free resources/routines on YouTube.

    VS Gut...What Happened??? $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    There is also Grapplesnake natural gut at $37/set, which I think they introduced some time last year. Looks like it's sold out currently though.

    What's Going on with Tennis Content on YouTube?

    A tennis YouTube channel I subscribe to posted a video with a very similar title to one of these today. I think he may be lurking on here :unsure:

    Citi Open 2021

    I was there last night as well! Definitely an electric atmosphere. Was also lucky to see Rafa practice up close earlier in the day which was unexpected. As far as food options, it’s much improved from 10 years ago when I first started attending. It’s a lot of local vendors which is cool. There...

    Citi Open 2021

    It was bought by a different group and moved to be a clay court event in Poland. Citi Open is instead hosting a women’s exhibition with some American players (Brady, Pegula, Gauff (?))

    Citi Open 2021

    Yeah, you are in a lively area. Lots of good restaurants and bars. The hotel had an awesome restaurant in it but I think it closed. One of the best Ethiopian places (Zenebech) is nearby.

    Citi Open 2021

    Which area are you staying? Tom Sietsema is the local food critic for the Washington Post and has great recommendations. Some staples near downtown are Rasika (Indian), Jaleo (Spanish), and Fiola (Italian). I went on Saturday with my kids and had a great time seeing all the practices including...

    Citi Open 2021

    In past years, their Twitter account posts the practice schedules for the day. Another question. Are you allowed to leave the grounds and return later in the day? I think I was able to in previous years, but can't quite remember (getting old haha).

    Knees Over Toes Guy?

    Yeah pretty much agree with everything you say. The lack of any negative feedback or constructive criticism about it definitely has me skeptical. I don't have any major knee issues but was thinking I may integrate some of his stuff into some stretching routines.

    Knees Over Toes Guy?

    Been seeing him a lot recently. Recommended to me by a friend who's had recent knee/foot issues. Anyone else try this out?

    The Jollettieri Academy

    Ok, I'll bite. Two things I've been struggling with: How to get proper shape on slice serve. When I consciously attempt this, the ball will sometimes curve in the air but then straighten out after bouncing. How to hit a proper topspin 2HBH. I get a weird side spin (may due to poor footwork and...

    Who's Using the Babolat Pure Strike? Why is this frame not loved? What's the catch?

    I do generally think it's less popular at the pro level. Some guys like FAA and Kokkinakis swtiched from the Pure Strike to the Aero

    Mayami strings

    Huh? I would expect that as the bare minimum if it was their mistake. Unless you mean they let you keep the wrong gauge which is nice but I would expect most other companies would do the same if it was their mistake. Right, that was my take as well. I am sympathetic to them for trying to break...
