Re: Scratching a new racquet for the first time...

A couple of years ago I smashed 3 brand new rackets in 2 months.

In my defense they were the big, fat, ugly, rubbish Serena 05 racket. (the white ncode )

Re: Scratching a new racquet for the first time...

OMG this belongs in recreational tennis forum. Do all the mods even know about that forum?!? So frustrating. Nobody uses it because it was combined with College Tennis (why? makes no sense), and threads that should go there don't get put there, so almost everybody doesn't even know it exists.

haha, i was going to post something about that before i even saw your reply.

I hate doing both... putting that first mark on a brand new racquet AND scratching a phone for the first time. But now.. both of mine have a lot of scratches, lol.

Re: Scratching a new racquet for the first time...

Hate it!

Racquet, phone, ipod, sunglasses...and the list goes on.

I usually just blame the person who hit the low ball!

Re: Scratching a new racquet for the first time...

I'm using Head Classic Agassi rackets so I try to protect them ...

...but I'm not losing a damn point just to prevent a scratch.

Mirzalover here's something else you may not know. In Asia the family or last name is listed 1st. The individual or first name is listed 2nd.

Ex. Peng Shuai.
First name = Shuai
Last name = Peng

You might want to get it right on your signature as Shuai Peng.

Don't worry even TV makes this mistake from ignorance.
