    Stich vs. Edberg

    Stich, very under rated. Seemed to live in the shadows of Becker. Oft forgotten when serve volley practitioners are discussed. Worthy of more than one slam but that was most surely the strongest tennis era.

    Wrist pain.

    Hi folks, Just want some advice here. Appreciate any info etc. I'm 52, hitting at 5/4.5 level. Heavier racket, strings hybrid poly and multifilament set up. Relatively soft 52lbs. I hit an eastern forehand and to add some oomph to it I tend to almost shake my wrist before ball contact to built...

    What % is Djokovic playing at right now?

    Why? Hardly matters, one mans 80% is another mans 60%. But for my money hes definately getting up that hill to where he needs to be.

    Good luck to you if you're going to call a fault on that one. Just too grey isn't it

    Gamesmanship

    Hi and thanks. Jumping around, stomping feet, tapping racket? This must have been very excessive for you to call a fault. Is it against the rules to move around while awaiting a service return? Thats interesting.

    Gamesmanship

    Let it go is exactly what I would like to do but unfortunately I play and will be playing this guy quite a bit. He does not like losing to me as im a returning player back playing now 6 years or so. My perception of this guy is he is some sort of control moron who's had it all his own way for...

    Gamesmanship

    Ok folks just wondering what the rules say here. Playing doubles earlier and one of our opponents makes a cough sound on pressure points when we are playing the ball. He did this consistently over the course of two hours mostly on pressure points but always when we were serving. On serve once...

    Roger looks so sexy at the New Rolex Store Opening in Dubai

    I often wonder are the fools the guys who buy the real rolex's or those who buy the fakes. There is a thin line I notice in the Rolex fraternity. Pretentious prats, no other word for it. Well done Roger no better man to showcase pretension.

    Is Marin Cilic a contender for YE#1?

    yes Sure hope so As some one above said it was great to see the guy recover from his Wimbledon meltdown. That was one real bad day at the office.

    Depressed Zverev Fans Check in Here

    The look on his face when Cuevas hit the no look winner in Dubai May 2017 and the subsequent absolute collapse of his game said it all about his ego. Basically his whole game crumbled on one point. Under 12 singles stuff. Humility is not his forte. The white Mr T look doesn't do him any favours...

    Saying your "sorry" !?

    Yeah lol. I get that, and the sports psych guy!! No doubt it is a nice thing to say but it feeds nothing positive to you or your partners performance. If he's anything like me he doesn't want to hear it. I saw good advice above in one of the posts saying one would prefer to hear a curse rather...

    Felix Auger-Aliassime is Overrated

    Who said what for him to be overrated or even rated? He's just another star of next gen! An era so weak they have created their own identity. Next gen my arse. I dont get why they need to segment a certain category of failures.

    Seniors lounge (over 50) come on in.

    52 here. Kids are killing me at Open level. They even get to me before we get to court. I was in the locker room a few weeks ago and and was due to play this 20 year old whose father i played doubles with when i was a kid. We won the nationals so it was memorable. So...... I asked the kid...

    4G Rough destroyed my arm

    Im 50 playing at much the same level. For me any full bed poly set up most especially strung ≤48 signals trouble for me. Yet I keep one racket strung full poly set up, using it gives me greater pop and length against big hitters but i'll suffer after(rotator cuff/arm). My general set up is full...
