Babolat FST Pure Drive

I just wanted your feedback on something. In April I strung at a mens 250 event and a womens 50K events. Numerous guys were playing with the “paint job” of the new FST but the old racquet. None of the guys were playing with the new racquet. All the ladies I strung for none of [see more]

Tornado warnings and 2 plus inches of rain on  the clay courts. Not a great way to start stringing for the qualifiers. This is my 4th? or 5th year to do this 50 K women’s tournament. A big thanks to Bob Patterson who trusted me to take over for him when he decided to retire. [see more]
