and NBC is so lucky to have had Maria Taylor for that very moment
Woof - them's were some one-sided semis. And thankfully we got the final we wanted.
And even though I'm hoping Iga wins, I'm pleased for Coco. It's going to be an amazing time over the next 5 years with her, Leylah & Emma.
Not seeing the match on my Peacock app
Tennis Channel only until 11AM ET I believe…
my god, relegated to streaming i suppose.
Closed roof due to rain in Paris.
Courier saying Rafa woke up a little sore with his foot on Wednesday. Hopefully the extra day off helped in that regard
huge to get that break back
still doesnt seem comfortable
Not getting the break there feels like a potential turning point
holy shit what a shot
Hahaha how the fuck did he win that set?!
he stole that set
Oh, thank god - I don't think Rafa could win this if he didn't get the 1st set.
not the highest level of play
This is horrific tennis.
yea the pain is more a break or dislocation than a sprain
eurosport wont show the replay
just awful man
TC just showed the replay. Christ almighty it looked awful.
Just saw the replay, no way he's coming back.
Looks like a very bad sprain, probably done
As bad as it gets is quite dramatic
Zverev on crutches. This is toast.
did these announcers really think he was going to keep playing??
just trying to keep you watching.
That match was 3 hours and we hadn’t finished the 2nd set
Took my first ever tennis lesson the other night and I'm hooked. Already signed up for some future lessons with the hope of eventually getting into some small local matches for fun.
Any rec's on a beginners racket?
I'd just talk to a pro at a shop. Otherwise, just find a good price point on tennis warehouse or whatever.
dammit bro I'm asking TMB i dont wanna go to a store
Hot mic, Jim!
And here come the takes...
If you're able, just don't go cheap. You don't have to go immediately to $300...but there are quality racquets starting around the $100-ish range. I definitely won't tell someone to NOT get the $25 Walmart racquet if it's that or nothing and playing is better than not playing...but you just want your racquet to be helpful and not make the game harder than it should be to just hit a ball over the net. So making a smaller investment will help you enjoy the sport in the long run.
Then when you want, go nuts on the $300 stuff.
something around 100sq in and 10.4-10.8oz is probably a good place to be. You don't want something too light because you'll swing it too fast as you get better and get tennis elbow. Same thing can happen if its way too heavy.
Head speed mid plus is a good stick. Babolat pure strike is solid as well. Both have good pop but aren't rocket launchers. String pattern should probably be 16x19, which is what most rackets are. Don't get an 18x20.
I’ve seen that Babolat in multiple places. I’ll try that one. $179
Any recs for a 4.5 player? I’ve had the Wilson Ultra Pro 97in for the last 4-5 years and I’m looking for something with a little more pop.
Yonex Ezone 98 tour or Vcore pro 97
this bitch handcuffed herself to the net
Looks like the ezone has a little more pop. I’ll try it out.
Is 107 too big?
Have you messed around with lead tape or anything yet? Lots of people who use that frame customize it to play a little different. I think head makes a speed 18x20 which would probably have more pop than your wilson does. That ultra is a good stick for sure.
I personally think it is. Its hard to say though without seeing you swing. If you're athletic and pick the sport up quickly, I don't think you'll like a 107. But i'd pay more attention to weight in the beginning than head size. Anything under 10oz is definitely too light.
