    Crowd will be anti Nadal

    Whether the crowd cheers or boos for either during the match has nothing to do with Federer, it's about the players on the court. The tennis world does not revolve around Federer.

    Rafa Fans..who you rooting for?

    I prefer Federer, but his fans have me pulling for Novak. Either way I'd like it to be a long, hard fought, thrilling 5 set match. I'd hate a boring blowout.

    Dunlop M-Fil 300

    I found the m-fil to be quite flexible. Just looked it up and it has a 61RA. I had shoulder issues at one point and used this racquet for awhile afterwards. It was a great frame for customizing. After leading up, mine was stable and control was good. It was lower on power.

    Dunlop M-Fil 300

    I still keep my m-fil 300 in my bag, use it occasionally. I think I paid $39 for it new, way back 12-13 years ago.

    Your opinions that majority do not share vol. 2

    1. There is no goat, as Third Serve stated. Agree with his point. 2. I am a tennis fan, so I don't dislike any player unless they have a poor attitude or behavior. Yet, I liked McEnroe so go figure. Kyrios is the only player I currently have no interest in watching, I couldn't stand Connors...

    Grip sizes - too small?

    I'm 5'10" medium size hands and a 4 1/4 is my correct size. Yonex 4 1/4 is slightly large. My ex also used a 4 1/4. It has always seemed to me that there were more used 4 3/8 racquets.

    Kyrgios' talent is underappreciated

    "The most common commodity in this country is unrealized potential." - Calvin Coolidge Kyrgios had/has potential, he does not have a good attitude or work ethic. There are countless pro athletes who have been long forgotten that had "potential," but a bad head. Kyrgios acts like a punk. He is a...

    If you are a racquetacholic .....I might be able to help you.

    Even though most people are looking for the holy grail, if they found it many still wouldn't be content. Although one can probably play and be effective with any racquet, it comes down to calibre of opponent. When playing a weaker opponent any stick will work. Its when playing a better player...

    Do you have problems wearing different brands of apparel at the same time?

    Matching must be a younger generation thing. I'm older; is it clean, does it fit, is it comfortable. I would bet that hardly ever are two parts of my clothing of the same brand because I don't really give it any thought.

    YONEX ...?

    DR98. Just switched to it myself from a Aero pro drive. There is a lot of useful info in other threads about it. At first I was looking at the Duel G 330 and SV 98. I ended up with the DR 98. Read about them, demo them and see what fits your game.

    Yonex Ezone DR CLUB!!!!~~~!!!

    Ordered a yellow DR98 with Poly Tour Pro @ 52. I've been using an Aero Pro Drive for the past few years. I'm going to miss the spin the APD gave me. I never considered a Yonex before. I demoed a few racquets; I didn't like the Pure Aero, also tried the SV 98 but I liked the control and feel of...

    Non-Toxic Alternatives to Lead Tape

    Tungsten tape is more expensive, I've used Babolat and Wilson and neither stuck. I purchased it because I couldn't find lead tape. Came across some lead tape and bought extra. What I have has paint on it and I don't plan on eating it. I feel it's fine. If you must use tungsten, put a piece of...

    Decide? Fake or original?

    I have two of these that I bought at a local, reputable shop. Both of mine are identical to the OP's picture. Pre-strung is strange though but is it possible that the retailer does that automatically? I don't remember having silicone in the handle, but I wouldn't rule it out just for that. Mine...

    Love him or hate him, Rafa rules!

    I didn't like him at first, but his matches were the most enjoyable to watch. Especially when playing Federer. Always have been a fan of Fed, but at some point I began pulling for Nadal over Fed. Sad to see neither of them playing as well, it will be a sad day when either retires.

    Bonjour from Babolat

    I agree, a re-release of the original would be great. But, at least this looks to not have cortex. The PJ looks decent, but the stealth PJ or more like the original APD would look better. I liked the 2013 model, but still preferred the original APD.

    which double sided tape do you use for lead placement experiment?

    Electrical tape? I bought tungsten tape and it wouldn't stay attached to the racquet, I put electrical tape over it and it's held fine. The black look blends in well too.

    A Sign of the Apocalypse? BHBH and the APD

    I've been playing with the new apd with synthetic gut for 6 months, even though I've had past shoulder issues,I have no issues at all. Love the racquet, but I won't use poly strings.
