    The Frame Game

    Played a match the other night against a friend a bit lower rated than I and we came up with a fun twist on the Gun Game from First Person Shooter games. I'm sure we're not the first to do this but it certainly is a blast! You start with your primary racquet but each game you win you must...

    Why is Sinner still playing with Speed 2022 paintjob…

    …after becoming the posterboy for Speed 2024, which was launched on 18th January? Indian Wells is now the third tournament after AO and Rotterdam where we see Sinner still using racquets with the old paintjob, doesn’t make any sense from marketing perspective.

    Head Speed Legend - Djokovic Signature

    I was recently speaking with the pro at my tennis shop and I was shown a press release for the Head Speed Legend that is set for release in April 2024. From what I was reading it's a new version of the Speed but all blacked out and endorsed by Novak. I haven't seen anything about it online...

    What is the original replacement grip on Yonex racquet?

    I use Yonex 98 racquet and wanted to replace the original grip. What replacement grip does Yonex use on their ezone racquet? What thickness grip should I use to get the same feel as the original replacement grip? If I use some thing that is thicker like syntec or hydrosorb will it affect my play?

    Inquiries on moving from 26" to a full size frame for a junior

    That's it. That's the thread. Angles could be: When are they ready to move on from a Jr frame? What are good frames for the move up? (at the time of your response) How to judge/fit weight & balance, grip size, what-not, for a growing junior. Etc., /Acey

    Is 1/8 racket size a big difference?

    I recently ordered a racket in the wrong size, my size is a 1/4 and I ordered a 1/8, which is only a 1/8 difference, is this a big enough deal to send it back and order another and wait a few more weeks, or can I just put 2 over grips on it and be fine?
