    Opponent loses temper, throws racquet onto your side.

    Stand still, stare back, wait and see what he wants to do next. From there, you do you. Fight or flight your call.

    Where do strings settle or do they?

    same racket, same poly 1 @ 60lbs 1@ 50lbs Where do they settle? Or they don’t and both lose tension around same rate? Also, if 46 is magic, do I string at 50 for a match in the next few days?

    Can't seem to win as an aggressive baseliner

    Yes, pound it and come in to take time away. Practice your overhead. Also your opponent is likely getting a bead on your directions. If you can pound, then pound left/right and mix in going behind them. Work to get that short ball and don’t let it go to waste. Come in after it and put it...

    Wilson Ultra Tour + Tape = Ultra Awesome

    It really does come off pretty easy :) If I didn’t play so well with it modded, I’d be pissed! Get one used, take off the blue and go have fun! Resale? I’m keeping it forever, even after the next favorite comes along.

    Wilson Ultra Tour (Monfils)

    I'm going to add more lead in the handle too. I like what I have currently but am curious how more headlight will do to my game. Rec player here too, but I do play an occasional league and like to win :) Im still under 12oz so plenty room to customize.

    Wilson Ultra Tour (Monfils)

    Curious to see your final setup. What are you hoping to end up with? I added some lead at 10/2 and near bottom grip. I like it so far.

    In the zone??

    It’s the GLOW! Seriously, how many of y’all were honeymooning a new racket during this time?

    When you lose

    Analyze and try not to make the same mistakes. Was it me? Or was it him having an amazing day? Next time try something new that gets you more points. What’s his weakness? His game plan?

    Wilson Ultra Tour (Monfils)

    Played with mine for the first time tonight. It took a set to figure out that I needed to hit the snot out of it to get rewarded. Same as my PT280. Maybe it's the honeymoon and new poly but I was able to hit nasty FHs; deep penetrators and short crossers. Serves were fine, I needed to hit those...

    Everyone must be out playing with their UTs. I see some users have started selling theirs. What's up? I'm new the game, maybe I'll find out and sell too :(

    Head Prestige Classic 600 What Year?

    I just saw a Designed in Austria sell on the bay for a great price. Still many high priced ones out there, mostly designed in Austria not the made in Austria ones. If you keep watch you can snag one for a pretty good price. Super solid racket. It'll tell you where you game is lacking :) To the...

    The perfect stick: Volkl C10 Pro

    Love the c10, used 4 from different years for over a year with great results. The only thing I couldn’t gel with was the low power at the top of the racket. I tend to hit high in the stringbed and it affected my serves too much. My strokes were great though and I could hit anywhere I wanted...

    Which of these 2 singles players would you rather be if you had to choose?

    I choose A only bc I think it's more fun. Unfortunately, I'm more like player B. Real answer is more like Fed or Nadal. Better A player with some B thrown in.

    Gripes and Groans about ugly dinker - makes me wanna quit!

    Many so called 'pushers' out there. It's all about playing your game and not theirs. I've said it in many threads, and I will tell myself everytime this: Hold my serve and go bonkers hitting whatever I want on his serve. If you can fairly easily hold your serve with a good 1-2 or 1-2-3 punch...

    I went 0-8 in doubles season. Please help me break my curse.

    Tonight I didn't practice what I preached above. I lost 4/6, 6/0, 4/6. My opponent def turned it off mid second set then turned it back on in the 3rd. Then he pushed me to death and I couldn't execute. Looking back I should have S&V and went for more net put-aways. He couldn't hurt me so I just...

    I went 0-8 in doubles season. Please help me break my curse.

    I'm more of a singles player so my partner and I always get beat by solid doubles opponents. These turn out to be the old guys who know how to play doubles. We cannot baseline bash with them as they get to the net and always before us. When we get to the net first, we usually screw it up by not...

    I went 0-8 in doubles season. Please help me break my curse.

    Yes, playing up usually is the issue. The players there are just slightly better than ya'll at the moment. They find ways to win bc of that, esp in tie breaks. Other than that, you have to play loose and the style that got you there. An above poster mentioned serves. Are you holding serves...

    How to improve without practicing

    Continue to do what you were doing to get ahead. Find his weakness and exploit it. Get on offense. Go for winners but with larger margins. Main thing is get over the 'he always wins' mindset. It's hard. I know. My brother has beaten me for years and years, even tho, I believe I am the better...

    *****THE OFFICIAL HEAD PRO TOUR 630/280 Club*************

    Played a league match with it tonight. Came thru with a 2 set victory. 1st set pretty easy but opponent was def off. Second set came back from 3/5 to take it 7/5. The 280 def feels solid. I may have strung it too high with cyclone @ 55lbs. I think around 50ish it will hit absolute bombs...

    Best items you found at thrift stores (Goodwill)?

    For a nice profit :) I have 2 that I am using. Im not getting anymore. Every time I think I have found the 'one' I end up reselling all but 1. I've decided, my bags going to consist of awesome old school rackets that I can choose from to beat all comers!

    Best items you found at thrift stores (Goodwill)?

    Nice find! Super jealous as these are my main sticks now. Both mine had crumbled collars. I just wrapped some folded overgrip. Add some electric tape and it looks fine. Plays likes dream for me. I'm using cyclone 16 @ 58lbs. It settles a lot lower.

    Just received my PT280 Aussie, and have it restrung with Cyclone @ 55lbs. I can't wait to honeymoon with this thing. With an overgrip and a shockbuster2 its 12.24oz. I'm coming off a year with C10s and have recently switched to the more fun sticks below. Current sticks are Prestige Tour MP...

    how to win this match-up!

    The answer is, as many have said, attack his BH. The issue is getting on offense or on your terms enough to do that. A good player wont let you keep attacking it. Like said above, if he is running around it and its not punishing you, you should have his entire FH side to hit to. How about a hard...
