That's nice originally posted by ALLanah

Mako, go to the boards at www.tennis-warehouse.com and check out the equipment forums there. If you post there, make sure to let everyone know right away how much money you have. They will be quite impressed.
Good advice Fee.

Re: hello, new to tennis, got a question to ask

Thank you. I really did try to help this person, but his response really kind of threw me. Who spends that kind of money on tennis when they are just starting out? And what exactly are the best clothes that money can buy? Isn't that just a bit subjective? I mean, we all know that New Balance make the best shoes, but other than that....

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

cool it, guys. Just wanna teach you a lesson that DON'T be so naive and rigid that about all these "Who spends that kind of money on tennis when they are just starting out? " NONSENSE.
If one has got the $$$, why started with the pathetic cheap racket etc??? All these are tools that can be bought!!! Only one thing $$$ can't buy ie skill and $$$ does not gaurantee the best coach [ that fellow that said that $$$ can get best coach is again F naive].

so long guys, pointless to stay here with the "ex-perts"

Nobody here ever claimed to be an expert, that was your comment. See ya on the courts (you'll be the fool in the brand new Nike clothes with the overpriced Pure Drive getting his ASS KICKED by 13 year old girls).

And you missed the point again, but who cares.
