    Anyone playing with a torn medial meniscus?

    Well, I am going to be 66 this December. Haven’t played much tennis however have done a lot of biking and skied over 60 days last season pain free. I think the twisting, turning motions of tennis were not doing me any good. I still practice my serves regularly and hit with a ball machine all...

    DO NOT USE - Tecnifibre Grips

    frequently happens with quite a few overgrips. Seems to depend upon how much you sweat. I find if there is any residue I let it dry and it will flake off with my fingers. As I always use an overgrip, to me it's no big deal

    My first woodie - a bit of a revelation

    I grew up playing with a Davis Classic. Moved to a Donnay Allwood Pro at some point but really liked the Davis much better. I can remember showing up for the first time with the Allwood Pro and my friend and I looking at it and the Davis and noting how much nicer of a build the Davis had. The...

    Anyone playing with a torn medial meniscus?

    By pain I mean there was a bit of a burning sensation at the bottom of the knee. A bit of rest and it went away. At no time during the season was I eating Ibros or Aleve for any reason. This season I skied a lot of powder both light and heavy, Cut up powder and flat groomers. I am thinking...

    Anyone playing with a torn medial meniscus?

    Thanks for the response. This season I have met many skiers with torn meniscus,acl problems etc the latest medical idea seems to be " no pain, no surgery ". When in the off season, I live at the beach so following your advice should be simple. If I stick with tennis I think I will limit myself...

    Anyone playing with a torn medial meniscus?

    heard a popping in my knee when flexing. No pain at all. MRI shows the tear and zero cartilage within the knee. Age 63. Skied 6 weeks this winter. By the 5th week it was a bit tender. Took 3-4 days to recover back to no pain. Skiing is my passion but I love tennis as well but am worried about...

    How many hours to get good serve?

    About 10 years ago I was making it a point to serve at least 200 balls a day. i am on the road for my job and had all kinds of tennis courts everywhere. I would take a break around 10am and fire off serves. I could pick off cones anywhere on the court with my serve. Life got in the way for a...

    August 22-23: Newport, RI

    Great courts. There is also an hard court in the neighborhood that you can use to warm up prior to incurring the $90. per hr fee. ;) In fact you can see a few pros warming up there in July when the tour is in town

    I played with Jimmy Connors' old racquet today

    i have a T2000 & T3000. I enjoy hitting with them. When they first came out, the Wilson Rep gave me one and i hated it. LOL. I went back to my davis Classic in a heartbeat. Now i wish i had stayed with it. It's a nice hitting racquet.
