    Nissan 300zx or 350z

    The '03-08 Nissan 350Z had performance that make it a legitimate sportscar. Handing and braking were on par with more expensive European sportscars like the Porsche Boxster and BMW Z3. Together with normally aspirated HP ratings of 287-306 HP from the award-winning VQ engine, they meet or...

    Anyone actually believes Stan can beat Novak?

    Sadly, I thought Stan's career was over after his last knee surgery. I was wrong! If he doesn't break Novak's USO dreams tonight, he's still among only a handful of players who can give him a good run for it,

    Seniors lounge (over 50) come on in.

    64-year young 3.5-4.0 male playing with the Yonex EZone 98. As an instructor in the 70's and a student of the Inner Game, it's been interesting to see how my game has changed over the past 50 years. Combination of pilates and strength training has kept me in the game, but stiffness is still a...

    Favorite or best Yonex racquet.

    The best Yonex of all time is going to be a highly subjective question. Your needs and tastes change as you age. Over my career, I've enjoyed playing with a variety of Yonex frames. While I currently enjoy playing with my EZone 98, my best results were with the Super RD Tour 95.

    Racquet advice for a 65 year old

    I'm a 64-year old tennis player and would suggest your family member might be intrigued by a different type of racquet. I play with the Yonex Ezone 98 and enjoy features like the isometric head, quake shut gel and open string pattern. I'd suggest taking a closer look at the Ezone 100, strung...

    Yonex EZone 98 Special Edition

    I'm a 64-year old 4.0 player and have followed the Ai98 to DR98 to Ezone98 route myself over the years. As far as graphics, I still like the lime colorway and the overall feel/performance of the Ezone98. I'll wait to see this new gold with black graphics version before deciding whether I'll buy...

    Yonex EZone 98 Special Edition

    With the impending debut of the special edition 2019 EZone 98, Yonex must be faced with some interesting questions. Is the gold-with-black version a celebration of Naomi Osaka's ascendency to world #1? That celebration must seem a bit muted, with Osaka not playing very well and losing the #1...

    Sofia/Sonya Kenin has on the cutest tennis outfit I've seen in years

    Rosque Tanner had the hardest serve of all time?

    I recall Roscoe Tanner first came to prominence using wood Wilson Kramers. Upon reaching the top ten, PDP got his endorsement and his best years were achieved using their aluminum frames. His service motion was a quick, short motion that allowed him to throw rivals off, but I find it hard to...

    'Natural Gut Wholesale' Review (Stringing and Play)

    Yes, like a lot of things, premium gut was available in the 70's and in some ways was better than what is available today. VS gut was great and was around $20-25/installed. Granted, the coatings were not the same, but the feel was exceptional.

    Don't have time to warm up

    In the first few points of the match, go with Brad Gilbert's advice and "...make a few balls". This means trying to keep a good rally ball going and striving for depth, not pace. High percentage serves in and scrambling to return serve to start out each point. Move your opponent and get your...

    What's your perfect racket paintjob, real or imaginary?

    Yonex Super Tour 95 with that multi-color upper band against a mostly black background. Classy, but with a color palette.

    Best rate tennis shoes

    Keep in mind that everyone has different feet, with different needs, so what is the best value for me may not be for the next guy (or gal). It's impossible to make a generic recommendation on such an individualistic piece of equipment.

    Formula 1

    Here's my guess on what happened with Kimi. First, the remaining Directors with FCA decided to honor the late Marchionne's decision to promote Leclerc to the Ferrari drive. But, to smooth over the demotion, they also offered an extension clause for 2019-20 in Kimi's contract that would PAY him...

    Formula 1

    Kimi will be handsomely paid for his two-year contract in 2019 and 2020 by Sauber. Depending on how successful the team is, he'll go on to do whatever the hell he wants to do after that.

    Fed should have retired or withdrew

    One factor I'm surprised no one has brought up is declining eyesight. Despite the best nighttime lighting at the USO, it's never going to be as good as natural sunlight. Fed is no longer at his physical best, but eyesight is a factor that affects everything from shot recognition, to being able...
