A wicked backhand-slice save.

I played a point once in a 4.5 match where a guy just kept hitting overheads and I kept running them down in one point.  I was scrambling for each one, suprised I got a few of them.  FInally he hit one closer to me and I got to hit a groundstroke off of it, he missed the volley.  That was an intense point.  I must have chased down 5-6 overheads.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I've broken 4 racquets serving (1 Dunlop, 1 Donay and a couple of Pro Staffs). I'm a heavy sweater and my racquet often flies out of my hand when serving.

FYI: unless the racquet is out of production (like my Dunlop and Donay), the manufactuer will replace them at no cost.

One time when I cracked a discontinued racquet, they replaced it with a newer, $150 more expensive racquet. lol

How are you guys doing this? Wilson doesn't replace racquets for damages; they only do it if the racquet arrived damaged. ||-|

I've since retired my Wilson Pro Staffs. However, I got 2 free-bees.

Good for you, Arc! That's sweet. No such luck for me.

lol you just like contradicted yourself. HEAD replaces all of their racquets as opposed to WILSONS! Besides, Andre Agassi & Marat Safin use HEAD. Legendary status y0!

before you say it, I know I know -- The Williams, Davenport, JHH all play w. Wilson. But it still sucks compared to Head, if only bc they never replace their racquets.

...Not to mention Roger Federer, Taylor Dent, The Bryan Bros.

And how could you say Wilson sucks when your most beloved player is using it?

Just cuz Venus uses it doesnt mean I worship it. Besides, I think a lot of Venus' uneasiness around the AO time came from that darned racquet. Its too dagum big for her -- even if it is a paint job -- its still way too large. It doesnt even make sense for her to be promoting a racquet that big bc anyone in their right mind knows Venus wouldnt actually keep a ball in the court w. that racquet unless it was strung up at like 200lbs tension hahaha.

But, just bc Venus uses it I'd still use it anyday.

But yes, I think Wilson simply isnt as good as Head. Its more commercial, yes and appeals to the new player but when it comes down to complexities of the racquet build and what the real tennis player will appreciate from a racquet, Head excells. Plain and simple. :)

Venus started off using the N-6 (the black one, not the red one). It was after she switched to the N4 that she started to play better. And the Williams sisters like oversize racquets better anyways.

I'm confused. I dont remember her using a black or red one? Was it underneath the paintjob?
