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。

Some interesting statistics:

Courts Booked: ~192場
Tennis Balls: 36罐
Restring: 5次

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

又再出番復刻版,今次貴到冇朋友!!!

第一對Nike Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour

By admin, November 25, 2015 13:38

兩個月前我的Barricade V Classic經過10個月後終於報廢,而Adidas Barricade 2015 (B9)跟B6-B8一樣,後面還是比較單薄,很容易刮傷腳部。

另外Nike也不再推出舒服好穿的Court Ballistec 4.3,而變成了不適合香港天氣,鞋面極之不透氣的Nike Lunar Ballistec 1.5。

環顧之下,剩下唯一的選擇只有正在做大特價的Federer的Zoom Vapor 9.5 Tour。

大部份擁有Zoom Vapor的師兄之前都跟我都反映過這雙網球鞋很舒服,最大的問題就是不耐用,大概6個月就完了。

我試穿的感覺很不錯,最大分別就是重量很輕,而且左右腳跟明顯感到有兩塊回彈力頗高的像Air氣墊的物料。 (Zoom?)

最後發現標籤裡寫著版本的日期為03/15/15。

日本網球雜誌 (Smash and Tennis Classic )

昨天逛SOGO,發現原來香港都有得賣這兩本日本網球雜誌,大概港幣$77,不過就比日本貴8成。

新的Black Code終於推出了!

By admin, September 29, 2015 13:47

我的另一支後備球拍Head Extreme Pro一直都是穿Black Code,同一幅線用了3年半,線床並沒有出現任何死亡的跡象,而且越打越舒服,實在想不出為什麼會這樣。

這次選的是Tecnifibre新出的Black Code 4S 18g/1.20mm,第一次穿這麼纖細的網球線(原來還有更細的19g!)。一般來講,球線越細,控制力越好,當然也更容易磨損,希望遲些時候試拍的時候這幅新的Poly可以帶給我一個全新的體驗。

另外聽了經驗豐富的師兄建議,這次拉的Tension是52lb (Main) x 50lb (Cross)。

Black is Back! With Black Code 4S, Tecnifibre gives big hitters a durable, low-powered co-poly with MASSIVE spin potential, impressive tension maintenance and great feel (especially for a firm monofilament). Boasting a square profile and sharp edges, this string puts a very tight grip on the ball. Topspin players will be able to hit high-arching, spin-loaded balls that come down sharply and explode off the court. For this string Tecnifibre uses Thermocore Technology, a multi-stage heating technique designed to soften the structure and reduce harsh impact vibrations. This helps explain why our playtesters were so impressed with the comfort level. Players looking for a durable co-poly with phenomenal control and spin-potential should definitely give this one a serious look. Try this thin 18g for more spin and feel than the other gauges.

  • Gauge: 18g/1.20mm
  • Length: 40ft/12.2 m
  • Composition: Co-polyester with Thermocore Technology.
  • Colors: Black

Update: Feb 12, 2016

Blackcode Guage 18 doesn’t feel right, as it’s too thin and too stiff, probably need to lower the string to 45-48lbs. Also just re-strung another racket with Black Code 17 (previous one got broken during a match after almost 3 years, yeah!), 50lb (Main) x 48lb (Cross), it feels much much better this time, I shall stay at this range from now on.

網球拍避震膠

By admin, July 29, 2015 14:13

過去用了二十多年,最近終於發現沒了避震膠的手感是如此的不同! 尤其是底線抽擊,幾乎每一球都可以確定回球的深度,這是以前從來沒有的感覺。技術分析應該是避震膠增加了整個線床的Tension,所以擊球的時候自然回彈力沒那麼強。

唯一抱怨就是拿走了避震膠的頭幾次手腕感覺比較酸軟,不過過了適應期,感覺就如虎添翼,以後應該也不會再回頭了。

Nike Premier Roger Federer Crew (Volt and Orange) and Men’s Summer Gladiator Premier 7″ Short

昨天剛穿過一次,感覺十分透氣,Dri-FIT的確涼很多,對於在香港炎熱的夏天打球絕對有幫助。

不過這個組合比較奇怪,就是Federer的T-Shirt配Nadal的短褲,呵呵。另外見到Nadal的粉紅色T-Shirt也在50% 大減價,不過試穿後感覺衣不稱身,而且質地比較粗糙,所以沒買。

一定要狠心! 這個一定不能省錢!

string

原來網球拍String Bed(線床)死亡是一件很可怕的事,這次我終於實實在在地感受到了!

之前一直為了節省等到球線自然磨損斷開才換線,但是最近2個多月一直都覺得自己的技術在不停下降,尤其是以前的拿手正手抽擊完全失效,導致信心直線下降。

今天發現使用新穿的Gut+Poly球拍兩個鐘頭後,各方面的功力都明顯大增,尤其是正手,抽擊准繩度和旋轉強度跟之前有太明顯的分別! 所以我敢肯定之前的水準下降就是因為String Bed死亡的問題!

之前平均8個月才更換,那幅腸線應該一早就死晒! 以後學乖了,應該最多六個月就一定要更換球線,再也不要等到自然斷開才換線了,很高興今天又上了寶貴的一課!
