    2019 US Open Men's Final :- [2] Rafael Nadal (Spain) v/s [5] Daniil Medvedev (Russia)

    An entire generation or two blocked...because they came up at the wrong time.

    Yonex EZONE (2018)

    Different strokes for different folks, but I like RPM Blast in it.

    2019 Wilson Blade

    Agreed. Let’s go around the world to hear people say essentially the same thing we just said. There isn’t much variety in these reviews. Boone is the best.

    Rafa back to Pure Aero 2019 paintjob

    I know. You should have seen the look of shock and awe when I saw the PJ change. I said there's no way he can win with yellow and black. He's toast!! Do you think Rafa and his team met to discuss this change? Did it come from Babolat? "Hey, Rafa!! We need to see more Aeros!!"

    So, any pros using the over hyped super amazing Clash?

    Now that the new Blade is out, it's like Clash Who?

    Nadal's US Open 2019 outfit unveild

    Hey, great idea Nike. Put your guy in black. Last year it was 150 degrees and humid during the Open. May as well choose a color that helps him feel extra hot and sweaty.

    NEW 2019 Radical (May 16th) Release Date and (Some) Changes

    Yes, I have it and have been playing with it now for about 2 weeks. Have been also comparing it to the 360 Speed Pro and Extreme Pro. I have used every Radical going back to the YouTek IG Radical Pro. In short, it's the best Radical Pro I've tried in years. The Spider-Man Pro was a little clunky...

    Camilla Giorgi Mystery Stick

    I would figure if you're going to invest the time and effort and put up with the demands of a pro tennis player, you should probably enjoy it. Too cool for school. Nike Kyrgios it's only tennis. Not that important. Gimmie players with a passion to be the best.

    Post Pictures of your Racquets and Tennis Gear

    Nice but that is an illegal dampener placement. Can’t be above bottom string.

    Camilla Giorgi Mystery Stick

    She is joyless on the court. Doesn’t even give a sincere handshake. And she won an event early this year and even then didn’t even acknowledge the crowd at the end. She just looks like she’s always saying “Get me out of here.”

    Camilla Giorgi Mystery Stick

    Anyone know what Giorgi was swinging at Wimby? White racket with green, no labels. I thought it might be the new Strike but there’s a tag on her hoop that says Handmade In Italy.

    Any real difference between Pure Aero & Drive & Strike ?

    Strike is a little heavier in the head. Aero quick and firmer and Drive probably a mix of the 2. Little more head stability in the Drive. I use Aero + and Strike — dubs and singles respectively.

    The Babolat Pure Strike Project Two Zero Thread

    Wow. That's a lot of guessing. I think Thiem is doing just fine, and if he couldn't do something with his racket, I am sure he'd find one that he could.

    The Babolat Pure Strike Project Two Zero Thread

    I agree. They're revealing the new Strike, and then killing all the buzz and momentum of its debut by making people wait 4-5 months? Reveal, release. Not reveal, wait nearly a half a year, then release.

    New Head Radical

    Reviews of the new Rad sucked the air out of the sails for me. Not worth it.

    MUGU KO'd in first round at Madrid

    I know, but she's not playing well enough to get out of the first round.

    MUGU KO'd in first round at Madrid

    If there is one player on tour who would benefit from a fresh start -- new coach, new team -- it might be Muguruza. Knocked out of Madrid in the first round -- her home event on her favorite surface. Martic has been a tough competitor so far this season, but Mugu has to find a way to get that...

    Babolat PURE DRIVE VS 2019

    I play regular Pure Drive Plus and Tour +. but is it me or does it seem like the Pure Drive VS is a bit of a bust? Specs are, at least to me, far too light. With those specs, it seems like there's no reason to flip from a regular Pure Drive. A little more control? Smaller head?

    What else should I demo? All around racket

    Give the Beast 100 a swing, too. Little softer PD.

    Played with clash today, anybody switched?

    I took about 5-10 swings with one and immediately said, Not for me.

    How many Tennis Racket models do you carry in your bag?

    Pure Drive Tour 2015 and 2018. Pure Drive plus 15 & 18. Tour for singles, plus for dubs.

    Heavy racquets

    I have trouble hitting with a light frame. Doesn't feel like I have anything in my hand when I start my motion. 11.2 strung is sorta my base. With light frames, especially in the heat of a match or on the move, I can't time my contact -- just too quick through the ball. And forget overheads. I...

    Question for Pure Drive Tour Players

    Wondering what guys who play the Pure Drive Tour (and have moved up from the 2015 to the 2018 model) think about the difference in hoop shape between the two. The 2015 has more of an elliptical shape, while the 2018 is rounder. '18 version is slightly more maneuverable, but I visually prefer the...

    ATP's most exciting player? Dustin Brown?

    Yes, great performances, and he's beaten some top players. Past few years his play has dropped off quite a bit. He plays a showman style of tennis (like Kyrgios) and with his height and talent (he obviously has great hands), it's frustrating to not see him play with a little more determination...

    ATP's most exciting player? Dustin Brown?

    That return at :15 will get him killed on the ATP tour. His tricks were working this tournament against challenger level opponents.
