    Search in chronological order?

    Just to chime in - this has been a pita for me too. You guys have the default setting at relevance, rather than chronology. And to search everywhere, rather than the current forum. Which means a simple search to post in a recent thread almost always pulls up something from 2013 somewhere...

    Kerber blacked out racquet

    From the google translated site : "The galaxy black glitteringly glittering and gleaming will be on sale this time, Queen Wimbledon A · Kelber (Germany) in 2018 has started using this season early. "I also liked the feeling of spinning the coat deeply penetrating the coat and a delicate shot...

    Mika!!! how in god's name are you? The last image of you I have in my head is you, cradling your newborn in a hospital - a next level gaze in your eyes - all with a sublime view beyond a window behind you reaching out over Hong Kong! Been much too long :-)

    Dimitrov New Raquet??

    Hmm, just tried to check specs and fwiw, TW has removed the most recent black 97s for sale, only the original one is available on clearance...

    Yonex VCORE SV

    Blackout racquet is bad phone pic. Check Shapovalov’s Instagram, most recent training posts he’s clearly swinging the SV95 in training.

    Yonex VCORE SV

    Hey Swansong, That sounds like a sweet setup... Wondering how much spin you hit with (ie, how long before that set up breaks) and what tension you’re stringing it at - and if you were to do a full Yonex Poly tour Fire what you’d go for... gracias!

    Best Prestige Mid Plus

    Intelligence MP. Also a big thumbs up on the iPrestige MP XL. Great balance, flex and pop, never felt the 27.5

    How to Watch the French Open?

    @Meles and @scf does francetv stream roland garros direct on their website or is there an app that must be downloaded and installed? Would you know if it streams on ipads as well? Very curious about using a vpn for this - I used to live in Paris and RG coverage in the US is piecemeal compared...

    The myth of smaller grips???

    Hey @GreenClay, as a long time 5/8 grip user, I feel your (wrist) pain... When considering what pros use, it may be helpful to recall that pros have been using the same gripsize every single day from potentially early adolescence onward. I know my preferred 5/8 grip is the gripsize of my frames...

    PSC 6.1 Replacement

    Welcome to the boards Alex! It depends on what you like most about your PSC6.1, but I'll assume it's the feel, and that it's most likely a 16x18, yes? After selling to the public for too many years (imo!!) hollow feeling (ie, cheaper to manufacture non kevlar/graphite) 6.1 frames, the 97 range...

    What's up with Dimitrov?

    The racquet was the first step - it's Vallverdu who is having a big impact on mental and tactical approach. Vallverdu seems to have identified Dimitrov's strengths which he is now playing to (serve, forhand and all the time defense), while giving him the confidence that comes with working with...

    The Pro Staff Classic 6.1 mutual appreciation club

    @therecanbeonlyone (aka highlander no doubt) Nice find. My heart is set on an 18x20 4 5/8 grip, to complement my 16x18's. I may have to ship a pair of new releases from TWE then have them custom molded once my broken hand heals. Happy hitting!

    Verdasco String: Element, ALU Rough, Head MLT, and BB Original

    @cluckcluck thanks for the scoop - during Verdasco's R1 match v Wawrinka he was switching frames between serving and receiving. Guess he was paraphrasing Mars Blackmon, yo it's gotta be the strings! (Phew, wish he'd get out of his head and play his game)

    Pro's (Past and Present) That Have Swung a Wilson 6.1 [Includes major winners]

    @gino - there's the 7.0 Lite Classic Steffi Graf frame - it's a 6.1 classic 16x18 but an ounce or so lighter, sweet sweet frame, layup is a hair flexier if I recall
