    Did anyone notice the stab Roddick took at Gasquet?

    In the interview after roddick clinched the tie for the US, he was talking about spain and said something to the effect of "regardless of if it is a surface I dont like, I will be there". To me, given what was being said about gasquet not liking the court being the reason for his not playing...

    Keeping balls at Davis Cup?

    I heard a commentator at Miami say that the ATP had changed the rules and you can now keep balls that come into the stands. Does anyone know if this applies to Davis Cup as well? I highly doubt a ball will wind up where I am sitting, but on the offhand chance it happens would I be able to keep it?

    Federer and the French

    Even though Federer has not been playing great this year, I still think he has a shot at the title. He has been the second best clay court player in the world for the past few years. I still think he is. With Nadal's bad knees I am really interested to see if he is able to win it again this...

    Yesterday when I was watching the Wake Forest- Duke Tennis match, I noticed players from duke calling lets when balls rolled on their side of the court, as well as their opponents side. I remember reading something somewhere about when you can call a let, but I dont remember if you do it...

    Why are there no reels of natural gut?

    Are there no reals of natural gut on TW due to the price or does it have something to do with the fragile nature of gut? I realize a reel of most natural guts would be around $580 but you pay that either way right? I was just wondering why exactly natural gut isn't available on reels.

    Question on what to expect.

    I usually play 3.0 singles in usta matches, currently 108 in NC after one tournament. This weekend however, for some reason they stuck me in the 3.5's. I am playing a guy ranked 24 but he has an overall losing record. I guess i should just go out and play and take it as a learning experience...

    I was wondering if anyone has played with the 03 tours and made a switch to the speedport black? If so how do they compare. I personally love my 03 tour, and was wondering if the 03 black had anything better to offer.
