    Tim Henman Slazenger

    I had the black and blue x-1. Not sure if henman actually used or if it was a pj. They were underwhelming esp compared to a PSC 6.1

    2019 Wilson Blade

    can definitely see why the folks here like the v7 18x20. Just like the CV, i could play with it if i had to, but i still prefer the crisper 2015. The feel is pretty "Clashy" which isnt a bad thing, but not my preferred type of feel. Still a good stick though.

    UTR 12.33 wins a golden match over unranked player at an ITF tourney in Doha

    Two takeaways: - i still have hope as a 3.0 to become a pro - if i find the loser of this match and beat him, i can say i beat a pro player. Then that means i have pro caliber strokes. Sweet

    How to deal with people blocking fast 1st serves back

    you're struggling to hold serve because they're simply blocking back your first serve? Even if they block it back, you're still in a better position than your opponent. this really isnt a serve issue as much as it is a groundstrokes issues. improving your serve will only help mask this problem...

    DR 98 lacking control ??

    Playing devil's advocate here... are you sure it wasnt just a honeymoon phase? as much as you like the vcore now, you can just as easily dislike it down the line for having a head size that's too small, underpowered, not enough spin, etc. Like i said, switching rackets to keep a ball in is a...

    Crack or paint chip?

    Paint chips usually dont occur in the shape of a crack. With all the paint flaked off, can you see fractures in the graphite? It looked like it in the original pic. Second pic is not as zoomed in
