    Was having issues playing on hard court

    The answer is to get lessons on THE hard court with your D1 coach. Drill all strokes thousands of reps on THE hard court so you have the confidence to execute them under any condition. Well that is until you play a match on a different hard court that plays at a different speed than the first...

    Former College Players ranking themselves at 3.5

    I think they read on here that 3.5s hit harder than Nadal. 4.0s hit bunty strokes and 4.5s have strokes that look just like pros so 3.5 actually sounds like it could be too high. ;)

    And what did you think of Babolat’s marketing of Graphite Tungsten?

    Was having issues playing on hard court

    What do you think? It took him 2 years to finally figure out that he was cinching up his butchered Parnell knot incorrectly!!! :rolleyes: Most people figure it out in a few tries.

    Was having issues playing on hard court

    Actually, yes, he is. Here’s more proof. 1. He really believed that topspin makes the ball go into the net. 2. He couldn’t figure out how to open a set of strings without ending up with a bird’s nest tangled mess that required 30 mins to unravel. 3. Because he couldn’t string a racquet in under...

    It’s time for @am1899 to join us on the TTPS ignore list! :laughing:

    Don’t worry. Tomorrow is another day for TTPS to contradict himself again! :) And he’ll claim he was misquoted as usual. :-D

    What tension are you using? Did you lower the tension to account for the tighter string pattern?

    Anyone Remember the Yonex Ultimum RD Ti-80?

    The lite version of the rd ti-80 modded with lead used to be my favorite Yonex before I switched to 18/20s. Still have it but now when I need an 16/19, I pull out the vcp97 310.

    Would you pay Federer $1000/h to coach you?

    @FRV2 can finally find out if he can ace Fed with his 116 mph flat heater that goes in 10% of the time!

    What level are these players?

    Yeah, per the TT ratings standard, these guys are indeed 3.5. After all, practice videos of Fed, Delpo and Raonic in the past were rated 4.5 on the board.

    What level are these players?

    @ptuanminh 2 things to remember. 1. Everything is bigger in Texas. 2. Everyone is a better player on TT.

    Agreed. The v7 18/20 feels like a blade. The Clash feels like a clash.

    Can dumb people learn stringing?

    “As usual, I was misquoted. I said cutting out old strings, cleaning racquet, opening a new package of strings, untangling the birds nest I created from letting go of the coil of string cuz I have no clue what I’m doing, mounting the racquet, undoing all the crosses cuz I tensioned the racquet...

    Played 2 weaker hitting opponents back to back. WOW.

    Took you 2 years of lessons and playing to figure this out? :oops:

    Played 2 weaker hitting opponents back to back. WOW.

    Again. You are wrong as usual. I just hit with a forum member who has never taken a single lesson in his life and he has great mechanics and technique.

    Will be in Las Vegas 9/16 - 9/18

    Had another hit this morning with @SRUalum. Since I couldn’t serve due to my shoulder, we rallied for 45 mins, volleyed for 30 and he served and we played out points for the last 15 mins. Really fun hit! Had a great time. Shame he’s not closer because he is an awesome hitting partner. Thanks...

    I’m in SoCal. Matt is now in NorCal. And trust me, the LA people are not glamorous. :-D Sorry, perhaps my memory isn’t so good anymore, but have we met before?

    Can dumb people learn stringing?

    TTPS was able to learn. Sure it took him over a year before he figured out how to tie a knot correctly so if you are more intelligent than him and chances are very high that you are, then learning to string will be a breeze for you.

    Yonex VCP 97 310 - Adding weight

    I tried adding 1-2g at 12 on mine and didn’t like it. Once I removed it, the racquet I liked so much returned.

    My labrum tear rehab

    Continuing the stretching regimen, but gave it some thought and realized I could add some different stretches to hit the shoulder from different angles so in addition to vertical hanging stretch, I added another stretch. I bend my upper body over 90 degrees and grab a 30-45# dumbbell and let my...

    Obsessing over technique and never playing matches

    please follow your own advice before you create your next thread asking for help on how to string a racquet, pre-stretch strings, tie a knot, and the list goes on and on...you want and expect others to help you, yet you aren’t willing to do the same for others.

    What kind of knot do you use when stretching a string?

    Please share with him a slip knot so when he pulls on it, he falls into an alternate universe where we don’t have to be subjected to his posts anymore. :-D

    Watched Dimitrov practicing today in Vegas. He was just crushing the ball against 2 UNLV players that were his 2 on 1 hitting partners for the day. Loads of power!

    2019 Wilson Blade

    Yeah. The 18/20 is a totally different racquet than the 16/19. Didn’t jive with the 16/19 at all. Tried ChaelAZ’s v7 18/20 and what a difference it was. Good stick.
