The Tennis Thread

<p>Another snoozer of a match. :(</p>

<p>Yay! I use a pretty light raquet and I’m thinking of going to a heavier one once I start playing again (which will hopefully be soon!). It’s maybe 10.8 ounces strung and I think I need more weight behind my shots…I can hit pretty decent spin but it’s tough for me to keep it consistent. I really admire Henin for that- she was my height, weight-ish but produced the most incredible spin and with a OHB.</p>

<p>I play 2HB. It’s much more natural for me than my forehand…I just find that shot awks- even when it works well. A bit ironic, I think since most people prefer their FH side.</p>

<p>How do y’all string? I string like 54-ish with poly/synthetic gut blends.</p>

<p>54, full poly. I know that it isn’t as good for my arm as a multi or gut but it plays nicely and lasts for a few months.</p>

<p>Del Potro sends Murray packing, YASSSSSSS</p>

<p>I’m going to buy a racquet tomorrow probably.</p>


<p>Great match. :)</p>

<p>I have to watch that one! Watching Djokovic beat Tsonga right now.</p>

<p>Tsonga has so many gifts and talents and just has a hard time to put everything together synchronously. I like Berdych hiring a mental coach. Maybe Tsonga should get one too. He just played a point where he hit a booming serve, Novak chipped it back, and he just hit a monstrous forehand that Novak couldn’t touch. Unfortunately it was a little wide.</p>



<p>What are you looking at and what are you trying to achieve? Aren’t you going to demo first or are you going to buy by specs ore reviews?</p>

<p>I just want one so I don’t have to borrow it from the college. Standard adult one…</p>

<p>That Woz/Kerber moonballing point was so disgusting. Women’s pro tennis is a joke, especially when an injured Serena can still make it to the QF of a slam.</p>

<p>Point? More like points. </p>

<p>If I were Queen of the World I would ban women’s tennis. All they do is clutter up the schedule. Except for Kim. I liked her.</p>

<p>I saw that Djokovic had Kinesio Tape on his arm playing against Tsonga. He uses a really flexible racquet (Microgel Radical MP paintjob) - I guess playing at that level can take a toll on your arm, even if you are doing all the right things.</p>

<p>Well, Nadal’s back.</p>

<p>anybody know how I can watch this on my computer? I have time warner cable, and espn3 won’t let me</p>

<p>Most forums don’t take kindly to posting illegal streaming links.</p>

<p>It’s on “ESPN News” channel. If you have ESPN at all it should be available on “WatchESPN” online.</p>

<p>Go Del Potro! He worked so hard to get that second set against Djokovic…don’t want to see his loose so fast in the third. He can do it!</p>

<p>Go Del Potro! Third set now…</p>


<p>Go Del Potro!</p>

<p>So happy for JMDP - now go take the title tomorrow!</p>

<p>ESPN3 was blacked out in my area so I’ll have to catch it on YouTube in a few days.</p>

<p>It is nice to have somebody else in the finals these days. Beating both Murray and Djokovic.</p>
