    Novak Djokovic = Marat Safin ?

    Flashier backhand does not equal more talented.

    Where are all the people with friends who are Wilson reps?

    Exactly. What Wilson produces for Federer is nothing short of trade secret. If a rep knows about it, it's no longer a secret.

    First and last Slam for Stan?

    Yeah sure, whatever you say.

    First and last Slam for Stan?

    It's not a complete fluke. He caught fire this time. If he catches fire again, he can win again. A complete fluke would be if you catch fire, and all your opponents flounder. So you needed two unlikely events to happen at the same time (1: you play amazingly well, and 2: your opponents play...

    Stan Exposed Rafa's weakness.

    He proved that if you're red shot, hitting big shots after big shots without missing, you can beat Nadal. Sure, that's no secret. If you can do that consistently, you would be the World's #1.

    Who is better, peak Safin or pick Federer?

    The case of Federer and Safin is not just head-to-head, but against everybody else.

    Who is better, peak Safin or pick Federer?

    IMO, saying peak Safin is better than peak Federer is like asking, 2 players played 100 matches. One player won 99 matches, and the other player won 1 match. Who was the better player at his peak? You answer the guy who won one match, because he was able to beat a 99% winning guy 1% of the time.

    New Prince classic graphite 107

    Yes, but there are plenty of Tour Graphite vs. 4-stripe POG comparisons on this forum, so i assumed that he would figure out that all those comparisons would apply to the current "Classic Graphite."

    New Prince classic graphite 107

    TW people have said that the new 107 Prince Classic is identical to be Tour Graphite version. Now TW people have no incentive to tell you that those two racquets are the same if they are not. They have every incentive to tell you that those two racquets are different, so you may go out and buy...

    Why do people consider Division 3 Tennis a waste of time?

    If you go to school for the school, and do not aspire to be a professional athlete, D-III league is a great place to compete at a relatively high level, make life-long friends, learn teamwork, etc., and doing all these things without having to devote 100% of your life on a game. Now if you...

    Azarenka's counter attack, men should play best of 3?

    And playing a single set will cut down the number of injuries even more.

    Why are used tennis rackets almost worthless?

    It means the demand is manufactured. In other words, there is no real demand for the racquet you bought. Your "want" is manufactured by the racquet company. They artificially set a MSRP. Some racquets hold value better because the demand is real. It's like the difference in secondary market...

    CNN graphene article

    ... created with a pencil and a scotch tape, as the scientist who first made it. Put Nobel Prize winning physics to tennis racquet technology!

    CNN graphene article

    It's great for making the next generation touchscreens and monitors.

    Instructor wants to change child's grip.

    If Eastern grip is so much better, why isn't everyone using it at the pro level? I think the coach is imposing his own experience to everyone he coaches. It sounds like he's doing a lot of things right, but if he insists grip change, then change the coach.

    If Roger Federer is to win another Grand Slam, where do you want it to be?

    Win another Wimbledon and he's definitely the GOAT there. That'll rank him the sole #1 in history. Win another French open and, well, so now he's got two instead of one, which ranks him what in FO history?

    Did I just create the most arm-friendly setup in history?

    It's not the vibration per se, but how the strings absorb shock. If both racquets meet an incoming 80 mph tennis ball the same way, which return will be farther? The natural gut will. The difference in distance between the two balls can be translated into difference in energy transferred into...

    Why is Djokovic far more popular in China than in USA?

    Why is Djokovic far more popular in China than in USA? 1) Tennis is the third most popular sport on Chinese television. 2) He's not a Japanese. Chinese only hate Japanese.

    Did I just create the most arm-friendly setup in history?

    It dampens the vibration of the string, which has slightly more effect on your arm as your cell phone vibration mode.

    If Roger Federer is to win another Grand Slam, where do you want it to be?

    That'll happen when pigs learn to fly at warp speed. LOL. But beating Rafa at another Wimbledon is a reasonable, albeit unlikely possibility.

    What is the lowest level player to earn an ATP point?

    You can always pray that the other guy gets sick or injured, so you win by default. :twisted:

    Calm down. It's only the color of a string. Big deal. If she wants red, and there is an appropriate red string, let her have it.

    Who is better: Isner or Roddick?

    Right...... for someone who's never ranked higher than #9, and only momentarily.

    Federer's blacked out frame

    Federer is the Michael Jordan of tennis. He'll continue to sell stuff well after he retires.

    Is the bronze medal playoff unfair?

    Because you don't go head-to-head in those competitions. In some domestic soccer leagues, if two teams end up with the identical record at the end of the season, they both get championship trophies. But that's not how the tennis tournament is set up.

    Lukas Rosol's ranking went down despite beating Nadal

    Federer will endorse his wild card application next year. :twisted:

    Reminds me of the French Open 2009

    Federer has good chance against Djokovic. He doesn't have the mental block against Djokovic as he does against Nadal.

    Now that Nadal has lost in the Second Round...

    I thought you were going to ask if he should retire. :mrgreen:

    Rosol won't get much farther

    That's the only way to beat someone ranked 100 spots above you: praying that you play out of your mind for the day. Today his prayer was answered.
