    Dunlop Srixon Revo CX 2.0 Tour 18x20 vs. Dunlop Srixon CX 200 Tour 18x20

    I am now using the Wilson Ultra Tour. Just added a leather grip and 2 overgrips. Liking the weight so far. But, in terms of feel, I still love the response from the CX 2.0 Tour.

    Medvedev, 23 year old in the top 10 (#9)

    Saw him play couple of times. He's pretty solid. I hope he starts to be a contender in Slams.

    I am choker

    It has got to sting. Can't move on quickly from that mental meltdown.

    I am choker

    It could happen to anyone. More often, the guy at the other end of the court - despite the score, is still fighting, still believing that he can win no matter what.

    I am choker

    Can't believe it actually. And during the entire game, he was always up a break but couldn't close it. He just froze big time. We can all cringe how stiff he was on court. It was a mental breakdown.

    I am choker

    I know someone who is up 7-0, 40-0 and lost the match. He didn't play for a year. He came back last year stronger.

    What went wrong at 40-15 for Federer?

    Unfortunately, it seemed that the great RF "rushed" his way into both points. Serves were weak. Returns to Novak's were weaker. I hope to forget this. I had a hard time sleeping. Imagine RF wasting 2 MPs on his serve? Unbelievable.

    Nadal vs Kyrgios - Potential Wimbledon Round 3

    Actually, bad publicity aside, I am rooting for Nick. I hope he can mature, give 100% focus and be able to fulfill his potential and win at least 1 GS before fading away.

    Which modern racquets do you think will be future classics down the road?

    On point! I tried the APDs before but just couldn't learn to like it. With Pure Aero 2019, it was literally love at first hit. I was surprised as well. I used to play with control-oriented racquets (Dunlop Aerogel 2004D, Dunlop Aerogel4D 100, Dunlop Biomimetic 100, Dunlop Srixon CX Revo Tour...

    Federer: Nike shirts look like a truck drove over it

    More than the design, I think the price of nike tennis sportswear has become ridiculously high.

    Babolat Pure Aero 2019

    That's my concern too before getting this frame. So far, I have no arm / wrist issues. Arm issues may be attributable to strokes though.

    Babolat Pure Aero 2019

    I used the black widow 17g at 52 lbs on my PA 2019 and it was great! I am loving the control and arm friendliness. I was surprised that my shots aren't flying around the court at 52lbs. With my previous pure drive, I string at 58lbs to keep the shots in court.

    I still have a lot of strings left on my black widow and will get a new one maybe next year. I tried the kirschbaum black shark before and didn't like it. I will check the Volki cyclone you mentioned! thank you!

    Dunlop Srixon Revo CX 2.0 Tour 18x20 vs. Dunlop Srixon CX 200 Tour 18x20

    I haven't tried the Wilson Ultra Tour but heard good feedback about it. When using my CX 2.0 Tour though, I sometimes crave for more power and cant help but think of switching to Pure Drive 2018. But just love the precision, control and feel of the CX 2.0 Tour.

    hello, @Songs For A Dead Pilot ! Yes, still my racquet of choice! I demoed the CX 200 Tour and found my CX 2.0 Tour better in all aspects. How's your experience with the CX 2.0 Tour?
