Took 3-4 days to recover back to no pain. Skiing is my passion but I love tennis as well but am worried about...

    Looking to learn how to string professionally.

    I enjoy stringing for myself on my Klippermate and have been thinking about a life change. At age 60, I want to cut my current job down by about 50% and do some stuff I like to do. Stringing is something I would enjoy which will hopefully take me through Spring to Fall at which point I want...

    need some help navigating USTA'S Tennis link

    Why is their website so difficult to navigate? I called them and asked for the link to Men's 55 tournaments and was met with pure arrogance. The woman who answered the phone talked to me like I was dirt and told me I'd have to figure it out for myself. For this I send these A holes money? At...

    I just changed the batteries in my SP Pro

    Not too bad of a job. As you would expect, the top one was easy. The one within the machine was a bit tricky but only took me a half hour. For those of you with the Pro, I found it easier to use a 11/32 craftsman wrench instead of the recommended needle nose vice grips. The most difficult...

As a long time subscriber, I watched it go from the best out there to the dismal pits of IMG ownership. To their credit, the magazine did improve from their initial attempts but was always a shadow of...

    Having progressed a bit in rehabing my shoulder, I was cleared to hit a bit. Still no overheads or serves, just some forehand/backhand stuff. It's been about 6 months so how best to start? Well, I set the SP Pro up to feed me some soft balls and reached for my Head Arthur Ashe Comp 3. I hit...
