    Prestrung "good" rackets and Prestrung in general (Wilson Six.One 2017)

    I ordered a bunch of the Wilson Pro Staff Six.One (2017) from Europe (I'm in Cali) and they come prestrung with Wilson synthetic gut. I had bought a few of them back in 2017; so I can confirm that even the USA versions came prestrung. I just wonder why Wilson did this and a question in general...

    Who would've thought these guys would not play an important role in 2017 after this amazing match?

    To me this is the most enjoyable Murrovic match out there. Aggressive baseline hitting combined with chess-like tactics from both sides. Novak seemed to be more the aggressor and often found himself hitting approach shots and following up to the net. Murray had clearly planned on abusing Novak's...

    Favorite Kits of 2017?

    My personal favorite was the Nike kit at the French Open. I also quite liked Adidas' USO kit (Tsonga's)

    Long season winding down

    There were bright spots for many. Struggles for others. And a mixed bag for most. I think Pospisil captures his year, and the life of a tennis pro, perfectly in this tweet: https://twitter.com/VasekPospisil/status/925507189078360066 (Love the photos, showing highs and lows, but the first one...

    Who will be ATP YE#1 in 2017?

    Straight up fight between Fedal. Federer does far better than Nadal in this part of the season usually, but will his fitness play a role this time? It will be even more difficult if Nadal manages to win the USO. Fed has announced that he intends to play a full schedule- so 2 more Masters, Basel...

    Who predicted the last 12 months and what was it about?

    It's been quite spectacular how the momentum over the last 12 months changed within the Big Four - from the all over the world dominating Djokovic with his first RG title and prospects to win even a Grand Slam to an extremly consistent Murray reaching #1 at the end of the year, Federer coming...

    [9] Goffin vs Khachanov rematch - R1 Mutua Madrid Open 2017

    Only 10 days after their first match on clay and second one overall, all in 2017, now will Khachanov get his second win over a top ten player or will Goffin quickly get his revenge to set up a potential rematch with the King in the QF? :oops: Match is scheduled the third on Manolo Santana...

    ATP500 Barcelona 2017 - Quarter-Final: [Q] H. Chung vs. [3] R. Nadal

    Who will win this battle that takes place tomorrow on the famous Pista Rafa Nadal? Will Nadal rollover Chung just as easy as he did with the other twenty year-old last week? Or will the Korean Djokovic use the tactics of his idol to surprise Nadal and hand him the first defeat on his eponymous...
