    Roland Garros Final: [3] Novak Djokovic vs [4] Casper Ruud

    Does anyone actually think "pushing" will work against Djoker?

    Roland Garros Final: [3] Novak Djokovic vs [4] Casper Ruud

    Ruud looking like a 14 year old female moon baller so far. Working, for now, but it won't last.

    2023 Roland Garros SF: [1] Carlos Alcaraz vs. [3] Novak Djokovic

    People ripping on the play here, you'd think there were actual tennis players in this forum who understand how much a pain it is to play in huge gusts of wind.

    2023 Roland Garros SF: [1] Carlos Alcaraz vs. [3] Novak Djokovic

    It's obvious wind and nerves are playing a part in this match so far. I'm sure the play will settle down and improve.

    2023 Roland Garros SF: [1] Carlos Alcaraz vs. [3] Novak Djokovic

    I'm sure Novak is partaking in some of that sweet Eastern European "medicine" right now as we speak.

    4.0 man playing 7.0 mixed: Starting to feel bad...

    Sorry, I hit too hard to plow a 3.5 woman at the net. I won't do it. Like I said previously, a common tactic is to put the low rated lady in the doubles alley RIGHT on top of the net where it's easy to shank the ball over the net regardless of anything, and the man plays singles behind. It's...

    4.0 man playing 7.0 mixed: Starting to feel bad...

    I disagree. No true 3.5 woman should ever be on a court with a D1 sandbagger who is a "self rater" 4.5 (which we have a TON of in charlotte).

    4.0 man playing 7.0 mixed: Starting to feel bad...

    USTA Southern is switching to straight ratings for mixed, no more "mixed" mixed matches. 8.0 mixed will now be 4.0 mixed just like gender doubles. No more higher rated players playing singles while they shove the lady to the tightest corner of the net.

    New Balance Lav V2

    Hated this shoe. No stability due to high heel drop. I felt like it was an ankle sprain just waiting to happen. Returned.

    Asics Gel Resolution 9

    Bought a pair of the 9 wides. Normal super narrow, the wides fit me well but are still tighter than some "non wide" shoes like soul court boost and kswiss hypercourt.

    Nike Air Zoom Cage 4 Release Date ?

    Any idea what the heel drop is on these? Need a bit of a rise for Achilles pain.

    Agreed. These shoes suck. I need the old barricades back.

    Blade V8 16m vs Ezone 98 2022

    I've been EZONE for the past few generations. I've gone back from last year's ezone 98 to the older DR98 because I like it's more muted, softer feel. Problem is that my DRs have started cracking a bit and they now rattle on impact. I'm demoing the blade 98 in hopes that it feels more like the...

    Yonex Ezone 2022 AO

    yes, plays closer to the now last gen Ezone rather than the DR98. Might be still worth a demo because your impressions may be string/setup dependent.

    Yonex Ezone 2022 AO

    I played with it over the weekend. I currently have both the EZONE 98 and the DR98 that I use regularly. In fact I use the DR98 over the ezone because I enjoy the softness of it. In terms of how the new EZONE 98 feels, it feels more like the last gen than it does the old DR98. On a scale...

    Yonex Ezone 2022 AO

    yea but TW reviews have been very much like product commercials lately. Hard to take what they say with anything other than a bit of skepticism.

    Yonex Ezone 2022 AO

    ugh, I need less power, not more power. Should I switch from the Dr98 to the vcore? I've already switched back from the latest dr98 to the old (3generations ago) ezone 98 because the latest was a bit stiff.

    2021 US Open SF: [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [4] Alexander Zverev

    Fed had nadal? You mean Novak *has* nadal. They are essentially the same age and have played each other more than Fed v Rafa.

    Adidas Barricade 2021

    Time to stock up on left over soul courts. Narrow shoes cause metatarsal pain for me in long play sessions. Also, the knock on bounce is that it starts off great but wears out much faster than boost foam. Keep that in mind when trying these on for the first time. That cushion won't last...

    Head Revolt Pro 3.5

    Received a pair of these as I'm looking for a replacement candidate for soul court boosts, so I'll be comparing them to those. I wear 10 in SCB and ordered a 10.5 for the revolt pro. The revolt was still smaller than the scb a half a step down. Recommend a full size like those above. Very...

    Wimbledon 2021 - R1 Djokovic V Draper

    the women were slipping too. I'd imagine the ball is sliding around more so than the already normal slippery grass characteristics as well. Grass tennis seems dumb under these circumstances.
