    Federer Shanghai Uniqlo 2019

    Right, so discussion in the forum needs to be restricted to “tennis” and we ignore surrounding context like the reasons for sponsorship. Unless you have the balance sheet and media budget for pre and post periods any discussion of why uniqlo is sponsoring Rog (whether or not you get techie...

    ATP serve net clearance?

    Hmmm, but can trigonometry get us a rough idea?

    Federer Shanghai Uniqlo 2019

    Goodness me. How many times have you seen uniqlo ads featuring Roger? Me? Never. The assessment is pretty simple: unless he’s being used in ads it’s hard to see how they are getting a return on investment unless they are measuring it on something other than eyeballs on ads. Have you got the...

    ATP serve net clearance?

    Are there any reliable data sources for this? Probly not. Can those amongst us who can drive a calculator do a rough estimate of likely angles and clearance distances, based on whichever ATP dudes (on known height and probable wingspan) they choose? Por flavour.

    Eh? ROI = eyeballs = sales. No ads: ROI? In terms of your marketing budget is it all about ROI, however you choose to measure it (including positive association etc). My point being, whether the intention is to push either the tennis range or the ordinary range I can’t see how they are...

    Naomi Osaka choose Japanese citizenship in front of the Tokyo Olympics

    If you had dual nationality and one of those countries required you to relinquish the other citizenship what would you do? Would the prospect of representing your country at the Olympics (with reduced competition) and making megayen be relevant? Or would you be persuaded by concepts of loyalty...

    More interestingly. Have you seen any uniqlo ads featuring Roger? I have not. Are they using him in social media? (I don’t know because I don’t use it other than a few platforms where uniqlo ads won’t appear. I understand the positive association but can’t see how the investment generates any...

    Yonex Vcore Pro 97

    What tension do you use? I have it at 48m 46c and it’s a bit boardy and lacks touch. I’m perplexed. Should I drop it to low 40s?

    Australian Capital Territory legalises personal cannabis use

    16 Kyrgios free weeks

    Or, milk the animal a few more rounds before shoving it out the shed. His spectacle value is still high but will rapidly wane once his athletic gifts taper off and his mental fragility gets more exaggerated.

    16 Kyrgios free weeks

    Why does he yearn to go home to Canberra (I presume rather than wherever he’s tax resident)? Inexplicable. Kangaroos, gum leaves, rain and boredom.

    Blade 2019 98S 16x18

    Thanks drak, have you played the 16x19 to compare it against? I’m sorely tempted to get the 16x18 on the assumption it’ll put more pronounced action on the ball and be more fun for use on artificial clay.

    Wilson being sued over Clash branding

    Why get so bothered about marketing claims? Basic rule of thumb is that if you can prove it don’t say it unless you’ve got proof (which can be fairly shaky and still satisfy the threshold) but if you can’t prove it (or disprove it) go nuts and say whatever outlandish thing you want. Back to...

    Do you enjoy the Laver Cup?

    The WSL Freshwater Pro is worse, being also a made for TV entertainment spectacle/debacle - by a large margin - but the LC suffers from the same overtone of being a fake with aspirations of legitimacy.

    Wilson being sued over Clash branding

    It’s first past the post. Registering a trade mark entitles you to prevent others using the same mark: you get the sole right to economically exploit the mark by selling goods and services with it (or licensing others to do the same). You register the mark in various classes and in the countries...

    Wilson being sued over Clash branding

    Are there The Clash branded sporting goods? Have there ever been? If the band’s been squatting on a class it hasn’t used its mark will get squashed. I can see the possibility of Wilson having an issue about a competing mark for luggage but I’ve never seen sporting goods sold with a band’s...

    Grommets & Bumpers - stockpile or not?

    Thanks all. In my case I’m buying single rackets that I’m going to keep and use occasionally as an alternative to my usual racket, just for fun. I think I better get a couple of sets, just in case.

    Grommets & Bumpers - stockpile or not?

    Is it advisable to buy grommets and bumpers in advance of needing them? I need to get a set for a Dunlop aerogel 4d 300 I’ve bought and am told by racket depot in the UK that they appear to have been discontinued. Got me to thinking, should I get a set for my other more contemporary rackets to...
