    Because he’s a beloved billionaire that still brings smiles to people across the world. Did you ever feel this bad for Roddick?

    No end in sight for GOATerer!

    Who cares though. At this point, trying to determine who the GOAT is amongst the B3 is about as riveting as arguing about who your favourite band is. With their respective achievements and mastery of the game, it's really just about personal taste at this point. Like I keep saying, Drake has...

    Wilson has resurrected the K Six One 95 (18x20) from the grave!

    The Ncode was the best 6.1 off all time IMO: G-6.1-OAT. Plush and powerful.

    Shapo’s backhand

    Well, if he added a solid slice, his defense would improve significantly and he wouldn’t need to go for broke so often. Drop shots would be a nice addition also (see Thiem). As it stands, he relies way too much on his flashy topspin backhand that usually doesn’t have much room for error.

    Shapo’s backhand

    like I said in a previous thread, the above jumping one hander could be the best I’ve ever seen.

    Laver Cup Teaches Tennis a Number of Valuable Lessons

    WW Laver Cup saved ATP, now we need to save the WTA. I suggest: GLOT The Gorgeous Ladies Of Tennis 3 days of actual work, ladies play in outrageous costumes and adopt fake personas (wait a second........ :unsure:)

    Wilson has resurrected the K Six One 95 (18x20) from the grave!

    One of the worst 6.1’s of all time IMO. Stiff, heavy, and with a super high SW. The problem was really Wilson QC. I bought two that played nothing alike. One was in the low 330’s SW and it played great; the second was an unwieldy bat with a 340+ SW.

    Isn't it surprising that Medvedev is playing an ATP 250 (St Petersburg) after such a busy US summers?

    Playing at home. He’s there to bask in some homegrown glory.

    Closest current equivalent to James Blake?

    QFT Just like James. Exhilarating to watch when he’s on, but so painful when he’s off. That lack of plan B is so frustrating. /thread

    ATP big titles kings

    Children, children, Drake had more top 10 tracks than The Beatles in a single year. Does that make him better than The Beatles??? No, of course not. People had to leave their couch to buy a Beatles song, now you just press a button on your phone. The B3 have a team of scientists, doctors, and...

    Kim Clijsters is coming back! Again!

    Dude, she has 3 kids, forget about winning majors, she just wants to get the hell out of the house!

    Kim Clijsters is coming back! Again!

    Well why not? The WTA is about sprinting, not running a marathon, and she’s younger than Serena. Roof at all 4 majors now, players (men and women combined) can play into their 40’s these days.

    Sampras never created such controversy and division among tennis fans

    Hello OP, and welcome to the internet. Funny story, it turns out that instead of creating a global village where ideas and opinions could flow freely and thus bring us all closer together, the internet instead supercharged our deeply rooted tribal impulses and made even the most inane subjects...

    Making an Ezone 98 even more arm friendly

    Not racket related, but as a one time TE sufferer, let me just reiterate what others have said: only physical therapy and rest can fix your TE. Also, it’s often overlooked that TE is frequently a symptom of underlying shoulder issues. It was for me, I fixed my shoulder issues and now I play...

    The U.S. Open is the WORST Grand Slam by far

    Here’s something that doesn’t get mentioned often enough: the roof makes it easier to win slams, especially for the top seeds that get preferential scheduling and are less prone to shock exits due to extreme weather or rain delays. As a spectator, I agree, a roof keeps the spectacle going, but...

    Nick Kyrgios reminds me of ...

    @ibbi Yeah, it was probably a bit more mental than physical. Although he got spanked by the young guns in 2/3 of those USO finals. So yeah, maybe he wasn’t spent, but he knew he couldn’t compete physically with the new generation with bigger and more powerful rackets and strings without...

    Nick Kyrgios reminds me of ...

    People don’t know their history. Sampras was the Federer of his day, a guy that lived for tennis, who knew the history, and who chased the records.

    Nick Kyrgios reminds me of ...

    I get your point, but it’s apples and oranges. Doesn’t matter how passionate Sampras was about tennis, physically, he knew he was spent. How important is fitness in snooker? And how grueling is the tour? Any 5 set marathons in Australia in a stadium without a roof that used to get hotter than...

    Nick Kyrgios reminds me of ...

    Dude, read Sampras’s book. Sampras loved tennis. Later in his career what took its toll was everything that revolves around the tour, like travelling, hotels, press, etc. You’re thinking of Agassi. Agassi was super talented, but he hated tennis, and that’s why he had the career arc that he did.

    The Aeropro Drive Original will arguably go down as the best modern racquet of all's why

    Ever heard of: SW is like body fat: really easy to put on, but almost impossible to take off. That’s why the APD 2013 is the bomb. Comfy, and with a low Enough SW for customization.

    Rod Laver - Nick Kyrgios should be suspended

    This. I saw some pretty promising juniors practice today and guess what I saw: they were throwing in under arm drop serves during regular practice. Nick the tantrum ejaculating dick is having an impact.

    About Swingweight measurement

    Here's the thing with SW, your measurements don't have to be accurate, they just have to be consistent. To me, the Swing Tool app is good enough because I can get consistent readings that I can then use as baselines for customization. In other words, once you have your SW (327-330 in your...
