    I say we just play, have fun and don't bother ourselves all that much with who gets which points. Because it doesn't really matter all that much who wins, but obsessing over it does impede the fun.

    A wet ball leaves a wet spot after contact. And it really happens, no armpits involved; wet hands, sweat drops falling on ball, table…

    They get marginally thinner. You won't notice anything. After removing them, the usual shrinkage will be exacerbated somewhat.

    Welcome, Sergey. DEJ has been relentless in coercing you over here.

    Why would you say he felt compelled to do that?

    Not all antispin players play the same way, so it depends. Many use it to block, producing slow short balls when you attack hard, breaking your rhythm that way - or trying to, anyway. The more spin...

    We're playing again. I've opened the club last saturday and sunday, and now enjoy the soreness of my muscles intensely.

    As usual, my BH snapped into place quite swiftly. For some or other...

    Well, after a BH serve it’s somewhat easier to drop into neutral position for the third ball. Or to set up a strong FH followup for it.

    I’m not sure I understand why the BH serve went out of...
  9. Stiga clipper wood vs Stiga carbonado 45

    If you can master (and afford) it, T05 would fit these requirements. That does imply your level of consistency needs to be high, especially in the short/touch game, in serve reception and so on.

    My experience is somewhat shallow with these two blades, so for whatever it's worth.

    They're actually not all that far apart in terms of speed. The Clipper is a bit harder and stiffer, the C45 a...

    Anyone's guess is as good as mine, but my hunch says it's bound to be a hybrid, with a responsive EU/JP style sponge and a tacky CN style topsheet.

    The pros actually seem to play it safe, mostly, staying clear from full commitment, with minor exceptions. I think I see a little trend towards more risk, more creativity, more unexpectedness at that...

    Then again, no need to peel it off at all if it’s a thin layer. And the thinner layer creates the stronger bond, or so the glue people told me.

    Footage is key. Yet spotting and pointing out issues that could be improved upon is, though useful by itself, not enough.

    For example, when younger I was told many times to shorten my FH strokes,...

  22. Picking up the ball under physical theory.

    Sorry, but no. M = F * d, with d being the distance between the center of the ball and the center of mass of the outer material, perpendicular.
