male team player upper league
medium strokes with heavy spin, allround game
Current racquet Wilson BLX2 Steam 105S (MP, 16/15)
Former 5.0 with lots of injuries and age. I played Division II college tennis 20 years ago. At this point in my career, I am just a really good 4.0 singles to a pretty good 4.5 doubles player. I am an all-court player with good strokes and volleys but the injuries have limited my ability to move.

I hit a one handed backhand with moderate topspin or a hard skidding slice. Forehand with moderate topspin.

My serve has heavy spin, usually first and second serve.

I play about three times per week almost exclusively on hard courts and most often outside.

I prefer soft strings but have played polys and kevlars. I am a frequent string breaker; with a natural gut, synthetic or multifilament I break strings about every 4 to 5 hours of play.

For an inexpensive string, I really like this. It is not terribly durable but plays quite well for a string that is so inexpensive.
