    Tipsarevic: "pay in tennis is ridiculously low"

    Don't worry, it's not personal, but your belief that it is makes me think you realize how wrong you are – or perhaps at a loss for a better riposte.

    Tipsarevic: "pay in tennis is ridiculously low"

    Congratulations, you found something that validates your flawed, assumption driven argument. Do you realize that the plural of anecdote is not data?

    Tipsarevic: "pay in tennis is ridiculously low"

    Come on decades, red herrings? This isn't about some appeal to emotion over other labor classes getting shafted. I never asked you to feel sorry for them, and don't turn this into some pedantic attempt to argue I did. However, you can feel as sorry as you want and I invite you to continue...

    Tipsarevic: "pay in tennis is ridiculously low"

    decades, we get it, you took Econ 101 in college. You like to tell people 'this is capitalism' and say 'You're naive about business.' You probably took a few business classes too, and maybe even occasionally pick up a copy of the economist when you get your latte. Capitalism is not a perfect...

    Andy Murray adidas shorts in Roland Garros

    The second look like the formotion shorts. I've got a pair in blue and they're really lovely shorts.

    Nike Air Max Breathe Free 2 replacement

    Justify it to me. It's completely absurd. I can't believe I just paid $70 for some of the Breath 2k10s at a local shop, but I would have to be insane to pay $115.

    Should Nadal be made the top seed at French Open

    Yes, and I say that as a Federer fan bitter from Nadal's repeated drummings of fed over the years. If wimbledon can be arbitrary, so should Roland Garros.

    Lucky me! Nice find.....

    To those of you in the triangle area, get to the Gsmith on Glenwood immediately. I already got my haul – just bought a bunch of stuff and each item was $15. Adidas formotion shorts, a nike vneck top that nadal wore, etc.

    Lucky me! Nice find.....

    Like many of us here, I like to go to the local shops and try to find whatever deals I can. The prices of tennis things are getting ridiculous – $130 for shoes that won't last 50 hours? $90 shirts? – and I find that I can occasionally strike gold. Today I went to Stringers in Raleigh, NC and...

    What caused Sampras' strings to break so often ?

    Being stiffer means that they impart more force on the ball than flexible strings. Imagine you have a glove and you're going to punch someone with it. The glove can be made out of rubber or plastic. Which one do you think would do more damage? It's sort of like this (rubber is more flexible than...

    Just caught the highlights for the final. Fastest court I've seen in years. The ball just FLIES. Some of the points look like they're straight out of a video game

    What was it like back when Federer was rising?

    It was pretty amazing watching it happen. Then, 2004 was when it was all obvious that he was the next big thing – as you can imagine from the slam record that year – but I don't think he had quite the shotmaking ability until he put it on display full time in 2005. And he still looked good in...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kg1zgLWo6nI Verdasco hit the ball harder than anyone I've ever seen. It was amazing. Edit: Damn, you can tell just by the sound when he hits it.

    TW Review: Wilson Pro Staff 6.0 85

    I forgot how absolutely filthy this racquet is. I've been playing with an old nCode 95 prostaff for the past year because I didn't have anything else, and I was miserable the whole time. Today I feel like a new tennis player. I forgot what I should have been missing.

    TW Review: Wilson Pro Staff 6.0 85

    Just bought this boy in 1/2 inch. I get it Friday and I can't wait. Best years of tennis were with this racquet, it's like playing with a gun with its plowthrough

    Madrid 2011 SF: [3] Roger Federer (SUI) vs. [1] Rafael Nadal (ESP)

    Federer looks a LOT stronger. I read he'd been lifting weights, and I definitely believe it.

    Baghdatis' fitness regime

    I find the bench numbers hard to believe. Probably just not true. it would take most people at least a year to take a jump that big -- at least -– if not more.

    One shirt from the past?

    I snagged the Federer AO 2005 shirt off ****, but it's white, and I had to size up one. I am willing to pay a lot for the blue one in medium. Beautiful shirt, though it fits strangely – sleeves ending at the elbows and all
