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…Continue

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…Continue

The first week and the first tournament on the 'Road to the US OPEN' is in the books and Marty Fish not only saves two match points but takes the trophy home from Atlanta. I hope this is more to come for Marty and since he has secured his position for the US Open he is one of the top americans this year to follow to the open and you can follow him to Los Angeles where he will be the number 1 seed this coming week at the Farmers Open. Over in Hamburg at the ATP World Tour 500 tournament…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue
