Hi Hofer, how's it going?

Just wanted to point you to a couple of fun groups that popped up.
My Racket, What's Yours?? is a place to show off your weapon of choice.
Prince Players, We Got Next set up by Prince, Inc.
Fans of Serena - obvious title, but I'm not joining. ;-)

Hey Doug. Great job in the last Pick-em!
Just a heads up, we're going to do the French Open Pick-em contest, so get your brain working. You'll see the graphics on the main page soon-ish and keep an eye on this thread in the Forum. Good luck.

Hi Hofer, Do the Miami Tournament Pick-em contest. We need about 8 more entrants to qualify in the battle-of-the-boards. It makes following the tournament more fun. And will bring more eyeballs to Tennisopolis. Gotta sign up by late tonight. :-)

Thank you so much for your help. I am heading off to the local tennis shop today to have the tape added. I am sure I'll be back with more questions in the future!

The Wilson Nano Hope is a good racquet for beginners. I am not a big fan of large head, light weight , super stiff racquets. Keep the racquet add some lead tape. If you see my website then you know I sell and promote Dunlop racquets, but I don't think you need a new stick just some added weight.

I have the Wilson Nano Hope....I like the head size at 113. but the weight is a problem. I will try the tape though. If you were recommending a racket to a beginner with "some" skill, what would you suggest?

Hi Amy,
What racquet are you using? If you add lead tape, it's best to add a little at a time until you get it where you like it. Add the tape to the 9 & 3 o'clock positions and if you can add the same amount under the grip to help keep the balance the same.

Hello! I just checked out your website and I love it.
Alot of great info! I am having trouble with the weight of my racket....9.5....I went and bought it without trying it...beginners mistake. Anyway, should I add the lead tape, and if so, how do I know how much to add?

The USPTA is the older and first tennis professional trade association. To be PTR certified you must follow a standard teaching method developed by Dennis Van de Mere. Basiclly way back then it was Dennis' association. The USPTA feels there is not a specific standard of teaching since tennis mechanics has evolved with newer technology. Can you imagine the PTR 15 years ago when the only approved method of hitting a forehand was to step into the ball shifting your weight. Now we see the open stance with even more power because of the transfer of angular movement. That's how I percieve the difference between the USPTA and PTR. I know many PTR pros and have great respect for them. Having both would make you a more well educated pro but having a PTR is probably good enough for your students since.

Make sure your body is turning forward but your racquet is moving upward with the strings perfectly vertical. This is topspin, brushing up behind the ball with the racquet vetical. The slightest tilt of the racquet face and the ball will take off.
