Day 1 -- ALU Power on the Mains, Synthetic Gut on the Crosses, Tension at 61 lbs.

I strung my Prestige Mid at 61 lbs., ALU Power on the mains, synthetic gut on the crosses  (I had previously used these strings but in reverse -- ie, the synthetic gut was on the mains and the ALU Power was on the cross).  At first, this new set up felt like I was hitting the ball with a brick.  Despite exerting a tremendous amount of effort, my balls were barely going past the service box.  It was rough getting used to. Eventually, after about maybe thirty minutes or so, the strings started…

If you want to play, just give a phone call + Murray Victory @ US open

seven seven three 682-8483.  I'm about a 4.0 player who wants to hit around Humboldt or UIC.

With Sam Stosur, expect the unexpected

Don’t let that Aussie “aw shucks” demeanor fool you, or the placid body language hidden by her signature Oakleys as she goes about her business in a workmanlike manner around the court. She does not “Pojd” like Petra Kvitova, roar like Serena Williams, or throw in full-body fistpumps like Ana Ivanovic. She does not slam her racket a la Victoria Azarenka or negatively stalk the court like Agnieszka Radwanska or Angelique Kerber. Yes, Stosur may be the most even-keeled woman on the WTA Tour.…
