Hit with MrS today. He did not stay at the net today. I think he had much less opportunity to get there. My first fault was in the third game of the second set. I quickly duplicated it to create my only df of the day.
My strings broke on the first game of the day. I had to borrow a racket. I always have an extra or two with me but did not today. The only rackets available were a Dunlop John McEnroe aluminium and a Wilson kids. I used them both. I found the kids one most interesting. The grip was so small that I felt pain on serves. But the whip I could get out of it was incredible. It really was like holding a toy.
So what is the difference? It was light, the head was a little small and the handle was short. I think it is time for more racket mod on one of my n-codes. These ones will take a little more guts. They will require physical modification to the frame. BUT before I do anything in that direction I will restring 16 gauge at about fifty pounds (try the McEnroenian effect). 6-3 6-0
