    Do you play tennis or are you a non-playing fan?

    Simple question. Was just curious how many posters actually play vs. how many don't play but are fans. I see people post that tennis doesn't have a non-playing fan base so I am interested. Of course, I assume most here would search tennis forums out as players, so maybe a skewed base. But let me...

    What do you think of Karlovic becoming the oldest ever winner of an ATP Challenger event?

    I'm late but how does he do it? I mean he is a giant but you need to keep fit to be able to serve bombs and run the to net. He's 40 next March also lol, theoretically speaking that Jordan Thompson beat Andy Murray when he was Number 1 then Karlovic beats Thompson, does that make...

    Swing weight to power ratio—if you're strong why heavy?

    So I'm pretty new to tennis, but just wanted to discuss racquet swing weight to power ratio for your personal game style. If you're a strong athlete and heavy hitter, wouldn't it make sense to grab a racquet that's lighter in weight? If swing weight creates more power through the ball, wouldn't...

    The Slam Race is drawing to a close

    This USO was crucial for Rafa in his quest to overtake Federer. Now the difference between them remains 3 GS, the same since 2014. I know Rafa can still win a couple more RGs(at max) and maybe eke out a USO going ahead, but I don't see him catch Federer, here on. The field is getting tougher and...

    Hand pain after playing

    Yesterday, almost 2 hours after I finished serving and hitting some shots, the back of my hand started to ache at night. When I was serving and hitting rallies there was no pain at all and didn’t notice anything. The next day the aching was gone but now there is some pain with some very specific...

    If Nadal gets to within two Grand Slams of Federer, will he inevitably overtake him?

    This Open could be a big tournament, if Rafa manages to win, and he's got a great chance of going deep with the draw he's had it'll be the first time ever he's within two grand slams of Roger. The way i see it, if it happens is one of two things: 1) Roger finds early 2017 form and wins another...

    If you see a guy in a neon shirt not switching when he should be and/or setting up his partner for the other team with floaty balls...it wasn't me, it was my evil twin, Jesley Way...we were switching out between points.

    Lucas Pouille has the game to win multiple Grand Slams

    Someone who has flown under everyone's radar is Lucas Pouille. Watching his game he is silky smooth from the back of the court, able to hit winners at will off both wings. I think the result against Nadal is just the start of things to come for him, he won Vienna last year and has already been...

    Is Stosur managing her career wrong?

    Hi, I’m a big Stosur fan. But this year has been very frustrating to watch. Not because she is not winning much anymore. I don’t care if she wins titles or not. But it is bad to see her playing with so little confidence, because she is actually a nice player with good sportsmanship. I would like...

    Grommets For The Yonex RQ-60

    So, I have this beauty which I have had in the family for almost 20 years now. I really want to try this racquet out but upon closer inspection, I fear that the present grommets will just break the strings. Is there a way to get grommets similar to it? Do I need to contact Yonex about this...
