My last few racquets have been Wilson and I prefer the Wilson US Open balls over any other.  I do like Head shoes though.  :)
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I remember having this same topic on the old board. I dont remember who won but, as expected, Head Wilson & Prince led the pack. My vote goes for HEAD. No particular reaso nI started using it but I did and I've stuck with it since day 1. It's done the trick for me and I have no complaints.

Most people stick to the racquet that they started out with. Or maybe, it is the racquet that chooses you. :;:-|

I own a pair of adidas. Some people think it's weird but I like to wear their running shoes in tennis to boost my speed. Of course the grip on the bottom of the shoes don't stay as long as on tennis shoes. But they are a lot lighter than tennis shoes. And less expensive, if I may add.

I have adidas shorts and one of their shirts (white with a bit of red, kinda like waht the Bryans wore at the Davis Cup finals last year).  Shoes wise I have Response +s (not 7s, i was wrong before).  They were cheap and really durable.  I go through shoes like nothing and they're been good.

I like Nike stuff, but Andre chooses the best stuff. Hewitt has been wearing this really hideous green shirt this week, Agassi would never choose something as loud and disgusting as that!

I agree about Lleytons choice in clothes. And as much as I love Rafa those pants or peddle pushers he wore were hideous! Feliciano too! Only prob wiht Andres clothes are that his shorts are too short.  Moya is dressed very nicely. He always wears the sleeveless shirt and he has some arms. Hes just plain gorgeous

If you are looking for a particular racquet post it here in the "wanted" forum or at the tenniswarehouse.com wanted forum.  :)

I use big banger strings too! I loved them thus far...course Ive only used them twice but I have been very pleased. I think mostly because I've been using Prince Problend and the Big Bangers are gentler, more feel and also last longer so these are seeming like a gift from heaven at present.

I have HEAD equipment (i.rad and i.x5, 2004 team tour bag) my shoes are some cheap Nike running shoes I bought to get me through a tournament a couple weeks ago and clothes? well I usually stick to a pair of cheap things I got at wal-mart 3 for $10 with my tournament t-shirts :)

Yeah lol- I just wear my team issued shorts and a previous tournament or team shirt that we get for free.


I LOVE Luxilon big banger- the durability is amazing. I have extreme top spin shots especially off of my backhand. i like to catch short lobs off the rise from the service line with by backhand cross court and i don't know how many times i've broken (prince) synthetic gut strings on regularly played backhands.

I use Big Banger Alu but I'm switching to a Pro Hurricane + Technifibre E-Matrix hybrid.  It's cheaper and the 18 gauge version of the Pro Hurricane should give more ball bite.

Speaking of Nadal, I've heard him being referred to as "Donkey Boy,"  I nearly pissed my pants when I heard that.  :))

Apparently the guy thought that Nadal looked like the donkey from Winnie the Pooh.  Hehe.  I think he looks like a girl.  Each to his own, I suppose.
