    Why does the Southern Section allow mid-year bump ups to play Sectionals?

    I just got back from 3.0 southern sectionals yesterday and I did some research on my opponents and 4 of the 6 players were already USTA 3.5. No one on our team was dynamic bumped during the year and we lost our flight by 1 court. Some of these teams we played were full of 3.5 players already...

    Why isn't there a smart ball machine?

    I've done some searching on the internet and I haven't found any kind of ball machine with some fancy stuff that would make it useful. Anyone heard of any radar controlled ball machines? I don't see why a ball machine couldn't have a radar on it to detect when the ball gets to the machine and...

    Oversized Racket Experiment...

    So, I've been playing with a Prince Tour 100T ESP for about a year and I'm using Weiscannon Ultra Cable as my string. The problem I'm facing is that now that I've moved from doubles to singles, my arm feels like a limp noodle by the second set. The 100T weghts in around 11.4 ounces with my...

    Lessons and dead balls..

    Is there anyway to account for using crappy old balls in lessons? I feel like I go to my weekly lesson and I can tee off on my forehand and hit these massive balls that dive at the last second with plenty of topspin. I then go to real matches and use fresh Wilson's and I have to pull back a lot...

    Getting Lessons.. To fix my volley or not?

    I started taking lessons recently and after working on my forehand/backhand, we progressed to my volley technique. He asked me to demonstrate my volleys and he was like wtf. I've had no formal lessons before this and I really didn't concentrate on watching any volley technique videos. I've been...

    Serve Analysis: Where do I go from here

    I have 2 serves in this clip, one is ~90 mph and the second is ~100 mph. I need a list of small things to do to fix my motion.I realize I don't use my legs very well, and my rotation could be better. I'm generating the vast majority of my power through shoulder and pronation. I've only been...

    Decoding the real Zepp shot data...

    I achieved root access to the Zepp App on my Android phone and pulled out the database that contains all the shot data. I haven't done a real court session, just some wall hitting in my backyard to generate some sample data into the DB. I have a dump of the database tables and I'm trying to...

    Prince ESP Rackets and the future....

    It seems like Prince is about to discontinue the majority of the stuff I like about their rackets(double bridge, o-ports, 14X16 pattern). My favorite frame is the Warrior 100L ESP. How 'available' will these frames be after Prince stops making them? Do they get put in a warehouse somewhere and...

    No restrictions, which poly/poly would you use?

    I'm throwing this out there, I string for myself and only play 4-6 hours a week(2 doubles matches, 1 singles). I keep 3 copies of my Warrior 100L ESP(14X16) racquet in my bag, what would you use? I'm focusing on poly/poly(either full bed or hybrid) at the moment. I may try gut/poly soon...

    Gamma Progression ST II used cost and advice

    I'm contemplating buying a Progression ST II from a guy I know. He wants 350 bucks for it. It's probably 8 years old but it's been in storage for 5 years. Would that be a fair price? He doesn't have any tools or a calibrator with it. If anyone has experience with this particular model, I'd like...

    Prince Tour XR

    Anyone have a spec sheet or info on this new string from Prince? I have a bunch of demo packets but no info on it. I strung a racket up with it today and did some hitting. Seems to be decent. Someone told me it's the prince equivalent to Wilson revolve.
