    The hat looks wicked! Nadal should sport it with a bright orange top just like the duckhunters.

    need help. in game choke.

    I couldn't have said it any better. Nicely said. That's how I get into my match zone too. I mean I don't care who I'm up against as long as my focus is on the ball itself. Of course everythingelse comes with your match experience.

    topspin-ers playing the slicer-s

    I've never played a guy with an eastern grip. Do you have trouble with high balls on both wings especially your forehand since you use the estern grip? I just have trouble with my bh on high boucing balls.

    after a run, next day i feel slow on court

    I know what you mean. I try not to do a leg workout such as squats the day before. Instead I do plyometric exercises such as jumping rope and doing quicksteps. If I jump rope just before my match, I feel super fast and light on the court.

    You hit on the rise?

    Yeah I pretty much have the same reason to hit the rise when striking my opponent's deep balls. Besides my opponent would have to react more quickly to my returns.

    Why White Grips?

    I couldn't agree with u more. The white color also give it a nice clean look and not distracting before it become gross in a day or 2. LOL Mine's babolat VS overgrip and they only come in white rightnow. I woudn't mind the tourna blue color though...

    The slice FH

    No we're in the same boat. I guess since the bh slice got natural leverage when pulling with your shoulder.

    Hard Hitters

    SEekor06, don't change your rac. Like others suggest, work on timing, footwork and train for a variety of shots. Be on the offensive without overdoing it. Construct your points. You're good.

    Help me - Back troubles :( :(

    I've had minor lower backpain from overtraining and doing lowerback workouts. But normally after a nice long deep tissue massage, it goes away. Good luck with your doctor's appointment.

    please suggest string......

    He should try BB alu power if he likes power and good control. It's the best string for me thusfar as far as power, spin and control. Good poly that's been armfriendly to me.

    if i went from western to eastern grip, could i still generate as much topspin?

    No to the above poll. You'll get wrist pain down the road and you will only have very weak topspin.

    Roddick's workout for his serve is pretty effective.

    tennis and working out on the same day?

    Yeah you don't wanna lift alot on the same day. You wanna stay loose and ready to go, not tight and fatigued. I normally do jumping rope and light lifting with dumbells to warm up my shoulders for my serve.

    ever played your coach and beat him?

    Well said. I guess you're right and the bottom line is that your coach outta have skills to analyze your overall game and try to bring you to the next level.

    ever played your coach and beat him?

    Just curious what kind of experience you all had. When I was 16, I regularly trained with my coach and played practice matches. I used to beat my coach 6-2, 6-3. He was probably 35 at the time. I dropped the first coach back then coz I'd beat him all the time. The second coach was pretty tough.

    Do you think I can become pro?

    Dude I just wanna be brutally honest with you like other folks here. At 19, it's not impossible to turn pro but in your case you just picked up the sport and play at 3.5-4.0 level? Fat chance. What state r u from?
