I'm really excited to get these (I just ordered two this weekend) and get out on the court. I've worked on my fitness some more, dropped 10 pounds and my legs have been the most strong that they've been so I'm ready to go.

I'm going to be switching from the Pure Strike. They've been very good, but I could use more power particularly since I play like Kim Clijsters and get myself running quite a bit into the corners and needing some more pace and strings haven't done it in the Pure Strike yet.

I used to use a Yonex RQiS 1 Tour and I still have it in the closet, but because I can't buy another one, I've switched over to Babolat.

Still using the Dunlop Biomimetic M6.0.

Although .... I'm considering demoing some heavier models since I've evolved my game quite a bit and I'm entering a weight-loss program. So we'll see.

TT Singles: 2014 SF: Bogota, New Braunfels. 2013 F: Las Vegas, SF: Orlando, Sibenik.
TT Doubles: 2014 W: Trnava w PinkTape. 2013 W: St Martin, Orlando, Sibenik, Charlottesville, Nantes-YEC all w Soliloque; Lexington w DJDVD.
