String your racket more often for better performance.

A quick note regarding racket stringing and the frequency of which you should be restringing.  While searching through various websites and blogs today I ran across a Prince Tennis blog titled "PrinceNextblog" and I was reminded about the phrase "string as often per year as you play in a week".  I never really spent much time analyzing this statement but found myself replaying the phrase…

The Top 3 Men on the ATP Tour will be showing their stuff in Cincy on Thursday

Lots of anticipation leading into the US Open and all eyes are glued on World No.1 Novak Djokovic, the man that can do no wrong or at least can only win.  Rafael Nadal had a handful against the French qualifier but tomorrow will need more to beat a top 10 player such as Fernando Verdasco even though he has a perfect 11-0 record against him.  Novak should have an easier day as he faces a qualifier but this qualifier has been in the top ten himself so Novak better not count out Radak Stepanek…

Twitter and trash talk

I was briefly amused at the article atTennis magazine online -Daily Spin about the Andy Murray Doubles match against Blake -Isner and how Andy's older brother was using tweeter skills to throw some insults and some trash talk regarding the match and withdrawing from doubles,etc.  Kind of amusing way to be passive aggressive and let twitter do your talking!.   Read the article for the full scoop.

My daily tennis revue - July 22, 2011

I seem to be spending way to much time researching and studying the tennis industry these days so why not share some tidbits and brief notes here.  It looks like Venus Williams is the proud owner of 5 or so Jamba Juice Franchises and will be promoting the brand as well... they do make the best smoothies, the kids love em! 

A new racket brand -'bolt' is entering the market, apparently the racket has a suspension system that keeps the strings off the frame and therefore vibration is…

7 US Men into the Main draw of the 2011 US OPen so realistically what are our chances this year?

Well under 10% of the draw at the US OPEN this year will be American players.  Underrepresented for a country with free tennis courts in every city and tennis readily available everywhere.  With 7 US men directly into the draw for the 2011 US OPEN we are looking toward Mardy Fish(no.9) andAndy Roddick(no.10) to make headlines.  Mardy has not won any titles this year but made some… Continue

How Absurd is the title and title sponsor of the Hamburg Tennis tournament this week -'bet-at-home-open"

I am conflicted regarding this tournament that is being held in Hamburg this week.  Tennis betting or sports betting in general is ILLEGAL in the United States, but an ATP tournament in Germany is underwritten by an online sports betting company from Austria?  First off I do not gamble on tennis or any sport so I find it a little disturbing that we are sending such conflicting signals to our children.  Is it not true that the prize money comes from the sponsors and the sponsor is an online…
