    USTA Tournament Compass draw format, BEST IDEA EVER!!!

    So this past weekend I played my first USTA tournament using the compass draw format. This was a major zone tournament worth 400 points which required travel and it was a doubles only tournament.

    In 2015 Wawrink beat peak Djokovic to win the French Open title for the first time. Peak Federer would not have lost.

    What do you drink while stringing?

    Just wanted to start a fun thread for once. First I am a recreational player so I don't string for a living, just for myself. I don't string for time records but rather at a slow steady pace while watching TV. I have found that I enjoy stringing much more if I have a beer while doing so...

    FieldTurf - a grass alternative, why not?

    So many of us agree that the grass season is too short and the ATP should look into possibly extending it. But most of us also know that it is not cheap or easy to maintain grass courts. Grass courts are dependent on the seasons, take lots of time and lots of money to keep in optimal shape...

    Riveting tennis took place Sunday

    The Frech Open final this Sunday was the most exciting tennis match I have seen since the infamous Nadal/Federer Wimbledon finals. It seems that IMO the past several years we have had some real stinkers when it comes to Grand Slam finals. Some just outright uncompetitve beatdowns. Some...
