Re: Do you use anti-vibe?
I play with a dampener, but I take it more like a fashion stuff (I mean I play with these Wilson Bowl of Fun dampeners that have shapes of smileys, hearts etc. - yeah, girlish). When I don't have it on, I'm able to play without it, of course. But I feel the difference. I think it's because I'm used to it. So I think if you don't use it and suddenly you put it on, you won't feel comfy and it will distract your concentration.
Ruben Ramirez-Hidalgo is an intruiging player. A complete nobody who near the age of 30 worked himself up to be a competitive claycourter (2006-2007), beating Ferrer at RG, leading Federer 5-1 in the final set in Masters Series tournament.
His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.
i sit on central court in the front row, turn my head back over whole stand and the vip lounge above and see RRHs moonballs from court #2
