Haha well I've tried the head racqet a little more and I have a hard time to serve with it unfortunatly it has a great feeling from the baseline.

I don't know how hard I will serve with a Pure Drive since I have a pretty fast serve now. I might even get it over 125 mph ^^. I have a avarage on 110 - 115 but when I serve great I can get the ball a little higher :D

Haha Grim, you can serve faster than waiakeas_hottest's car goes. XD

Damn, my serve averages around 110-115 with the Luxilon strings. I need to work on arm strength sometime.

Then again, my serve is the only real thing I can rely on, so it's not too bad. :D

It isn't so much about the arm strenght shonen... if it were I wouldn't be able to serve over 10 mph ^^;;

It's most about tech and the wrist need to be pretty strong. I have a natural swing so I never practise my serve. It's good as it is I just neeed to increase my serve %

Use technique instead of brute power that is much better....

Your serve will get faster if you train your arms but it isn't everything it's mostly about technique :D

I still remember the time I used it for the first time...it felt so much better than my old racquet ( i still think racket looks better...) it put so much more spin and had more control than I thought!!

but still, you still dont hit very consistantly unless you do your "wegie dance"....... work on your consistency and you'll do a lot better.

Haha, I think Shin plays unorthodox tennis Grim ^^;;

One more week and I'll be able to play more than twice a week again... although, with the events occurring, I doubt I'll be able to go anyway. :| My serving's the same, my ground stroke coordination is fugly. XD

^ Haha! By the way, how'd the match go?

My strings are dead. :\ Well, they did last for five or six months with minimal play... hopefully I can get home and break them fast, so I can have a new set for next semester. :)

We won easy with 4-0 in matches. I had some trouble with my single match I won it with 7-6 7-6. Didn't play good but I managed to win somehow. I also played a double match against them we won it easy with 6-1 6-2. Played a little better but still not good.
