“It’s always been so clear to me that Roger is the greatest. But I would say that, with Rafa doing what he’s been doing, he has an argument to be in the conversation. Rafa isn’t done yet. He could win more majors. He’s got a winning record against…Continue

Posted on July 15, 2013 at 10:30pm 14 Comments

Roger Federer met the press Monday in Hamburg and the Swiss star revealed that he made the decision to play the event the day after his shock second round loss to Sergiy Stakhovsky at Wimbledon.

“I think this decision was made very quickly the day after Wimbledon,” Federer told the German press today. “I…

What are the tell tale signs you're a TENNIS BUM?

Posted on February 8, 2013 at 4:00pm 16 Comments

I'm sure this could run in a few categories:

1) Racquet freak: Gotta try the latest racquets, demo ten racquets when they come out at the start of the year. End up getting six of the same, then an itch happens. You buy a different one, then have to sell the six when that new one plays better. Then…

Thanks for the tip Tip.  I'll check that out.  Just to let you know there isn't any media that isn't about selling.  Peace, Rick Brandon.

Thanks for the compliment Tim.  Since joining Tennisopolis, I have always found your comments to be level-headed and sincere.  I am preparing for "Old man/new racket vs young man/ wood racket 2013" by doing more weight training than I have ever done before.  I think it will be the difference between losing in 2012 and winning in 2013.
