Happy Tennis: 8th Year Anniversary (8週年紀念)

By admin, March 10, 2017 12:47

回顧過去的8年內,原來已經跟超過300多位的波友對壘過,很高興從中認識了一班經常聚會、志同道合的「鐵腳」。

每個星期6-8個鐘頭的網球運動除了令我身體強壯之余,也令我更加正面思考和面對問題。 當然我更享受和不同網球朋友暢談中體會什麼是真正的人生。

另外去年也再次跟一位年輕的師傅學波,他剛好住在我樓下,近水樓臺,再Fit不過!  師傅幫我糾正了一些錯誤的Form,尤其是正手得到了比較顯著的改善。

其實心訣還是那一條,就是放鬆身體,招式才能得以順暢發揮,從而爆發出最大的力量,也就是Bruce Lee所說的Be water!

還有就是當遇到強勁抽擊時,要更加好好學懂如何借力,絕對不要硬碰,要利用「四兩撥千斤」,以太極招式「以其人之道,還治其人之身」。

Some interesting statistics:

Courts Booked: ~175場

Hybrid新體驗: Head Gravity 17 (1.25mm) / Cross: 18 (1.20mm)

By admin, February 12, 2017 18:50

朋友最新的推薦,Head Gravity主線的形狀是三角形的Co-Poly,據稱可以產生較多的旋轉。

之前我也曾經試過這幅線,感覺的確比之前的Solinco Tour Bite Diamond Rough 17 + Babolat RPM Blast 17g要得心應手,不過當時的球拍是 Radical Pro。

這次的磅數為: 53lb x 55lb

奇怪的是這次的直徑17g感覺很粗,更接近其它牌子的16g,可能跟那個三角形的球線形狀有關。

最後也順便更換了用了5年多已經開始爛掉的Grommet。

Update: Mar 20, 2017

Out of my expectation, it only lasted for 5 weeks or 28 hours! But overall speaking, it’s probably the best string I’ve ever come across with Head ExtremePro. I’ve restrung it for 55×53lbs this time and let’s see if this combination makes a difference.

Update: May 8, 2017

Proved the set can only last for 5-6 weeks! So I changed back to Blackcode (52lbs on both main and cross) instead, the result is surprisingly good. From my experience, Blackcode can last at least 3-4 months, let’s see.

Not my collection, but it contains many memorable moments from the past 40 years!

在TST見到Sergio Tacchini專櫃,想不到多年後這個意大利的經典網球牌子竟然變成香港公司擁有,記得1991年那時得SOGO先有得賣。

夏季大減價又開始了!

終於等到了這款,這是我的第二對Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour (標籤裡的版本為01/06/16),喜歡它的原因主要是因為重量輕和耐用。另外橙色的T才3折,真的不能不買!

Hybrid新體驗: Solinco Tour Bite Diamond Rough 17 + Babolat RPM Blast 17g

By admin, May 10, 2016 17:08

上次Tecnifibre新出的Black Code 4S 18g/1.20mm使用感覺一直都很硬 (也就是甜點比較小),大概維持了7個月就自動斷線了。

這次聽一位師兄介紹,挑選了這個比Black Code硬度更為低的Poly線Solinco Tour Bite Diamond Rough 17g作為Main (52lb),而Cross則配搭之前用過比較硬的黑色Babolat RPM Blast 17g (55lb)。

開始的時候感覺整幅線床不夠Power,但用了大概一個鐘頭後,就開始慢慢適應了。發現整體感覺還是不錯的,尤其是發球,沒有再像以前震動得那麼利害 ,而且兩個鐘頭後手臂也沒有出現之前的酸軟,很可能跟Diamond Rough作為Main導致線床比較軟的原因。

最後發現不同網球線製造商的規格原來存在著輕微差異,譬如大家雖然都是Gauge 17但直徑(mm)還是有分別的。

Tecnifibre 17 = 1.25
Wilson 17 = 1.24
Solinco 17 = 1.20
Head 17 = 1.30

Solinco Tour Bite Diamond Rough 17

dsaf

Solinco Tour Bite Rough is a textured co-poly with a phenomenal blend of precision and spin potential. The firm feel and extremely predictable response will enable players to take huge cuts at the ball. A great option for strong intermediates and advanced players who like ripping the cover off the ball. Try this thin gauge for even greater spin potential. Feels slightly softer than the original Tour Bite.

  • Gauge: 17g (1.20mm)
  • Length: 40ft/12.2m
  • Construction: Co-polyester
  • Color: Silver

Update: July 31, 2016

Last set didn’t even last for 3 months, but did produce good feeling, so I went back to the same set again, but this time 53lb x 55lb.

Update: Nov 14, 2016

The combination lasted more than 3 months this time, I decided to go for it again. this time string tension is 53lb x 53lb.

Update: Feb 1, 2016

The combination lasted for 2 1/2 months only!

Happy Tennis: 7th Year Anniversary (7週年紀念)

過去一年裡主要集中單打訓練。

底線、腳法和網前都比過往有較大的進步,Top/Under Spin也多了不少變化。對於強勁的抽擊,開始懂得如何四兩撥千斤,以其人之道,還治其人之身。即係撞個波返去,的確好好使,而且慳水慳力,何樂而不為。

策略方面多了思考發球後下一步應該如何進行,尤其在實戰中觀察和尋找出對方的弱點。

逐漸學會了如何放鬆身體和思想,這樣才能發揮出最大的Power。

“Empty your mind! Be formless, shapeless, like water. If you put water  into a cup, it becomes the cup. Put it into a bottle, it becomes the  bottle, you put into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can  flow, or it can crash: Be water, my friend!”

- Bruce Lee

最後就是之前師兄教落,打波靠對腳,輕盈的步伐才是致勝關鍵,看看Federer優美的步姿就知道這個沒錯了。

String Tension

By admin, December 21, 2015 08:56

“String Tension”,measured in either pounds or kilograms, specifies the pressure by which the strings are secured to the racquet frame during stringing. Tension has a strong influence on your string-bed’s and, by extension, your racket’s behaviour.  The following table will help you to understand how this behaviour is affected by tension:

LOW TENSION HIGH TENSION
CONTROL LESS MORE
POWER MORE LESS
SPIN LESS MORE
COMFORT MORE LESS
DURABILITY MORE LESS
