    How do I put on a leather grip?

    I got one from TW, put it on as I would a synthetic grip, but as I feared my tendency to hold the racquet very low pulled the lowest part of the grip off the buttcap after a hitting session. Should I just redo it, but stretching it more and putting it on tighter this time? Or do I wrap it...

    I can't figure out the deuce serve

    Hrm ok thanks I'll keep what you guys said in mind and see how it goes. My toss is getting a bit more consistent but that's probably part of the problem still. And yeah, the leg bend post XD

    I can't figure out the deuce serve

    :confused::confused: Alright, so I can't even visualize how it's supposed to work. The serve is a left to right motion (and the racquet faces naturally opens up towards the right), so how do you get the ball to go to the left side while still having pace? Any tips on how to get this going? @_@

    **** #1 Redondo Talks Thread ****

    Ok, I increased my 3/9 lead from 4g to 8g, and added a rubberband (I suspect a lot of the reason I don't think it's solid is the sound) so we'll see how it goes.

    **** #1 Redondo Talks Thread ****

    Ok, confession time. I got myself one of the laver type c 93's... and it's freaking awesome. Not only does it have more power, but it's so solid, and it totally pockets the ball. But my shoulder is feeling it XD Anyways, why doesn't my redondo feel this way?? Anything I can do to make...

    LA Tennis Open (July 27-August 2)

    His brother... XD Safin's doubles match was pretty entertaining. Actually, Sela was the one who impressed me with that rock solid 1hbh and the angled volleys.

    Federer vs. Hewitt - 2002 Paris Masters QF

    Haven't seen the match at all, but didn't he used to be a lot less conservative? As in going for the flashy shots and stuff.

    Nadal switched his playing style?

    Thanks for the chat transcript! Good to see roger is as graceful as ever in his losses. And props to nadal (read some of his interviews)- a graceful champion also!

    Explaining why tennis isn't one of the most "popular" sports?

    Two tournaments? That's what, 4 weeks a year? Consider how much more you can watch football/bball/golf/pro fishing/racing/soccer/etc... even if you needed cable to watch those, all you needed would be the basic level of cable (unlike tennis channel...)

    Do most pros hit with Western Forehands?

    Where were you during high school english? You don't start anything with "I think" or "In my opinion" as that's completely redundant. Everything you say is already your opinion (what else would it be..?). You're out to prove a point- do you want to sound insecure while doing so?

    Nadal vs. Tsonga LIVE

    Ehh, Nadal's short balls are generally fine cause he hits with so much topspin that they're not REALLY short >_> and can run down most aggressive shots hit... but apparently tsonga is immune to heavy topspin!
