String Tension: Are you loose or tight?

I like mine as tight as I can get it! I like the "pop" as I hit every stroke in the center of the racket!

Loose, (after the first set and a half) I have a lazy wristy swing so I need that "trampoline effect" to keep my power ground-strokes going in the third set.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

Most people when they first meet me, think I'm tight, but it only takes a few minutes of hitting until they realize exactly how loose I really am...

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

That's a bit personal asking if someone's loose or tight innit?

Levo, I don't understand why you gave me a bad rep when I said Venus's hitting coach was hot. You bitch, I ain't trying to steal your man!
