For atp points at least.
But they are experts for strings and such hehe.
Even tho the lvl of their tennis is low to none.
Only way to really know how string or racquet plays is to be at least on pros lvl of speed and spin and somewhat similar control.
The slower you play the less difference makes which string you use.
Its just a preference at that point.

Hahaha petty as always nice!!!
Well that pettines will sure to be beat out of you some day.
Anyway you got my point on subconcious lvl if nothing else .
Again nothing to get upset about, stringers cant really play can they.
For sure it was worth pointing out.
I mean its like they drive a golf 2 but talk about feraris and stuff haha.

Guess you haven’t met many stringers. A guy I know who strings lives walking distance away from my house. He had ATP points in the late 90’s.
even so its les then 1% of pro stringers if not 0.1% that had any playing experience.
Been on couple of slams seen the stringers:)
You just made my point.

Ergo...
By the Defendant's own logic, and admission, he will never attain any ATP points. For he is an expert stringer.

I motion for Summary Judgment and reserve the balance of my time.
Only reason you use logic is because you saw it from me and now you wish to test it out on me??? .
Quite funny

I never met a mechanic who won a Formula 1 race.

Or a supermodel that designed her own outfit.

Warren Bosworth, did he even play tennis?
Anyone can play tennis and millions do, same exact sport as federer plays. With same racquet, balls, rules and even sparing partners , 15 people can drive formula 1 . Its just not possible.
But for a stringer its very possible.

Supermodels design lol.
Most of them have lines of some sort, perfume clothes and such
And the last one i dont even care ....

Why anecdotal? Took me 30 min to learn how to string . Not saying its not hard job, but its very easy to learn.
How much time do you need to learn to play tennis to get 1 atp point.
Stringing is a job , playing tennis to get atp points is carrier .
Its just not the same people ....

Anyone can drive a car, same as anyone can play tennis.

If you've never heard of Warren Bosworth........well then, you don't know much about stringing OR tennis for that matter.

Car and formula 1 is not the same thing lol.
Tennis is tennis always the same for anyone.
Im affraid you dont know much about tennis if you wanna compare people for your nation.
Im from ex yugoslavia which beats your country 10 times in a row in davis cup and holds slam records with nole :).
Who do you think is the bigger name.
Next goat or bosswhat lol.
I guess you could compare them with formula 1 and a car lol.

You're a dim lightbulb.

Yes, Nole is the best annoying player on tour, second to Ralph.

Your knowledge of the history of tennis is lacking.

Tennis is tennis, just as driving is the same as F1.

Nice try.

I'm not going to bother detailing you're moronic views on stringing and stringers, that's too easy... I just want to make a correction that there are actually 20 drivers in Formula 1 each season...
I see you are man of culture.

You're the one that made a sweeping generalization on all stringers, but I'm the one "keeping it petty." (y)
No need to get offended. Same can be said for tennis judges or officials.
Its not the same road , thats all.
With serious tennis you either go to college and work after, end up taking money as a coach from someone who wants to pay, or end up as a top 100 pro.
Not much stringers or judges there .
On the other side being a stringer is much better and much more honest job then being a tennis coach. From which vast majority are just sleaze balls.

"Never met a stringer who fon a single match." Interesting. I assume you meant to say 'won'. That aside, you probably haven't met a lot of strings anyway, so it would make sense you haven't met a stringer that hasn't won a single (sic) match.
You're obviously new to the world of (professional) tennis, as many many lower level players do string themselves and most are actually quite capable. And since lower level players ocassionaly rise to the higher levels, I can tell you that there are Grand Slam winners that can string a racket to prof specs quite easilly.
"There wasnt any burns or dents , almost 0." That's ok, everybody has to start somewhere. You're also mentioning how fast you can string. Interesting indeed. Since gear is a big part of professional tennis (refreshing your mind for a moment that many players string themselves), you one day will find out that speed is not the most important part. Consistency however is. So it's fairly easy to digest from your post that you are a novice stringer, with little to no material knowledge, which in turn tells me you're talking a big game you ain't got. Any player with ATP points will double bagle you for lunch. Most club players probably too. I'm willing to bet that even those pesty lazy coaches can trash you into oblivion, because anyone who constantly needs to advertise to the world how good they are, you guessed it, they usually suck. Bad. (Tennisballs through a garden hose bad).

What you do have however, is an ego, large as it is fragile (much like the Djokovics' of this world) and a semi-ok troll game. Entertaining for a few minutes but badly articulated and thus painful to read, not particulary well thought out or insightful, riddled with inconsitencies and extremely predictable. A 6 minus for now, but unless you step up your game significantly, really not worthy of our time, unless it's a dull moment such as now.
Good luck on your next effort.

I doubt you are the boss of this forum as a player, but it is a better possibility compared to you being the boss of stringing... I know you're confident in your skills, but there are stringers in this forum who have strung at all of the major tournaments, for the best players in the history of the game. Not to mention stringers who literally have techniques and knots named for them! As a stringer at least you are not fit to be wiped off the bottom of the shoes of these people! Please stop now before you embarrass yourself further.
