    Full Poly stringing: 17g or 16g ?

    Almost time to get another reel of Volkl Cyclone. My reel of 17g is almost out. Still have my reel of 18g but only use it in 18x20 pattern racquets, which my regular racquet is not. Debating whether to get 16g this time or stick with 17g. Been awhile since I used 16g poly. Does it offer...

    Which racquet is most similar to the Yonex 95D?

    I only have two Yonex 95D racquets. Love them but unfortunately, they are no longer made. With a Fairway leather grip and Volkl Cyclone 17g strung in the high 50s it feel great to me. Is there another racquet currently on the market that is almost identical to it?

    Prince T22 Lite - request to get same insoles as the regular T22

    I have been buying Prince T22 shoes from Tennis Warehouse for awhile now. I decided to try the T22 Lite version and was very disappointed that the insoles that came with them are far inferior compared ot the T22 insoles. The T22 Lite insoles have *MUCH* less cushioning. Any chance you can pass...

    Djokovic Calendar Year Grand Slam: Can anyone stop him?

    In 2019 or 2020 Djokovic will be the first man since Rod Laver to win the the calendar year Grand Slam.

Wawrinka & Murray have really faded. Anderson, Isner, Cilic, Del Potro are mild threats but a healthy Djoko should be...
