Many would say that Rafael Nadal is headed for super stardom.Some would say he is already there.  But, the one thing every tennis fan can agree on is that Nadal is going to be a legend of the court.  His career has been short, only beginning in 2002 at the tender age of 15. In April of that year he played his first career ATP match and won, defeating Ramon Delgado.  He was only the 9th player in what is considered the Open Era to do this before the age of 16….

Anyone that knows Dunlop knows that the company has a history of producing technologically superior racquets for decades, and their newest line of racquets is no different. The Biomimetic series is their current line, and if you break down the word Biomimetic, then you`ll see the “bio” refers to things found in the natural world and “mimetic” is another way of saying mimic, so essentially, these racquets take the form of things found in nature…...

As a young junior player I was always nervous when it was competition time. My friends would add some extra pressure saying thinks like: “I know this guy; you should beat him in less than 20 minutes!”, “Oh, you'll have an easy match!”, “You beat him all the time in practice; it should be easy this time too!” or “This guy is number one seed; good luck!” etc. Whether you are a tennis player or a tennis parent who doesn't know what to tell his/her kid before a match, here is my personal suggestion…

July 18th, 2012 by Marc Pinckney

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

I have played with Wilson frames for much (most) of my time as a tennis player; many more years than I care to count at this stage in my life. And I am predisposed as a result to always give any Wilson product a serious hit just on general principle.

I have to say that I don’t really understand the Prince design process or their marketing plan. Maybe the biggest issue is that the latter drives the former. The Prince EXO3 Warrior is obviously a very big deal to this company. The racquet is used and endorsed by the brightest young American star player; John Isner.

For tennis players who aspire to perform and serve at the optimum level, the Total Serve is designed for you. Based on knowledge of physical movements and different sporting activities, owner and inventor Lisa Dodson has created a tool that educates players what the accurate tennis serve and throwing motion “feel like.” Lisa has enjoyed an illustrious career in tennis. For more then 30 years, she has played tennis professionally, coached, managed tennis clubs and acted as the USTA professional tournament director. She has coached tennis players as young as 5 and as old as 85! But for many years, she used a tube sock with 3 tennis balls in it to help players understand what the proper serve should feel like. The sock, however, did not have a solid grip. Lisa says, “I found so much success with my clients with this simple tool that I decided to make…
