The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Hehe. I was taught the 2hbh, so I can only hit a two hander. Of course I enjoy watching one handers more.

Head's are good tho... I mite also change as i got Nadal's racquet but have never even tried it and i've heard it's better.

Yeah I know. And it's also better than your forehand, like myself.

Dumping that rubbish double hander was the best decision I've taken in my glorious tennis career... going from western to eastern helped too.

Someone has to film you hitting that single hander down the line.

Don't let Tori see that!

I want to believe he's innocent but I can't get my head around a sensible explanation. Even if he took it, I hope he is only suspended for 3 months not 2 years. It all seems to rest on whether he was in or out of competition doesn't it? Things aren't looking good for him though which is a pity cos I like him.

There's no such thing as a better racquet. All the player-racquets are pretty equal. It's about finding the racquet that suits you best. I've tried the AeroPro Drive that Nadal plays with. It's absolute shit to play with for me. I'm a one-hander with a very agressive game. It's more head-heavy than I like and the feel is so dampened that it's almost uncomfortable.

I'm going to order the new K88 Sampras racquet. It's heavier than a medium sized car but it should be good fun and epic to serve with. I bet the plow through of that racquet is like driving a tank through a mountain of cartboard boxes.

Roger Federer. Legend.

Not better, but someone said it would be more suited to me... Interesting views on it tho

Good luck!

Xristos a poster on MTF has got the same dream, and he's currently playing/training in Barcelona. Have you checked his thread?
