    Roddick to Wilson?

    That rep claimed it was modded to Roddick's specs. I doubt they lengthened each of those racquets by one inch.

    He had a one handed backhand that he would just rip if he could not get around it and hit a forehand. IMO the late bloomer has a huge choice to make on the backhand wing if they are trying to get competitive ASAP.

    I think he did really well. He was a our #2 player. That was 1984. He played a very modern game, Used that Head Vilas.

    Kinda. IMO you don't have time to get good enough to play competitive college tennis. The caveat being you already have a high VO2 max, good legs and hand eye coordination.

    I knew a guy in high school like you. He was 15 and obsessed. Basically, serve and forehand. He got good. He did nothing else.

    Not realistic. You could be the manager or play club tennis. Even club tennis is full of pretty good former jr players. If you a dawg and go HAM plus got the cash, you maybe could get it done.

    18x20 Wilson Shift prototype

    I think the additional flex in the racket makes flat shots flatter so to speak. Probably don’t need to cover the ball at all and extend fully. Pure observation of my kid.

    18x20 Wilson Shift prototype

    Yes. He lost in quarters to 12.67 UTR. Double faults crept in on flat serves. Definitely a sluggishness/need to get better circumstance. Spun some balls into the net when it looked like he was trying to hit the ball flat. Need serious early preparation on backhand. As you can tell, I’m blaming...

    FYI - D1 son play testing 315 at a money tournament. Tourbite at 52. Mods: leather grip, tourna overgrip, 7-8 inches lead at 3 and 9. Yes seeing the lead was shocking. He swung it like a champ. 6-2, 7-6. Yes, he was late a few shots. Everything went over the net except a few flat serves. One...

    I think it matters way more than we wanna give credit to because it means we messed up early on along the way.

    Fellow Right-Eye Dominant Right Handers... Forehand Tracking Tips?

    In my opinion, Novak Djokovic turns his face forward and widens both eyes to hit his forehand.

    Tennis college.

    Focus on the quality first and second serve and a quality return. Start lifting weights and playing sets every day. Learn how to play. Super hard down 1-5 and lose like a man. Play the back draw. Then you may have a shot.

    I am very surprised too. I actually do think it is a combo of the regional bank thing and the competition from ITF/USTA.

    UTR has 13 months to live IMO. Nobody has even asked where they do their banking. They are a Bay Area tech start up essentially. App is now buggy.

    My UTR is Going to Hell !!!!

    UTR revenue driver is access to decimal point ratings for high level play. Who pays for that? Coaches, parents and gamblers. They don’t care about rec play or game improvement anymore.
