now do excuse me, i need to go watch some tennis!
as with all the other tennis grand slams, the week after is always a tough one. next one is the oz open in january 2010.
On average, I break my tennis racquet strings every 3 hours of play. And this for about the last 20 yrs. Already back in the days my dad thought it be a good idea for me to restring my racquets myself. So he bought me a drop weight restringing machine, which I replaced a few years back with a brand new Pro's Pro TX-500 electronic restringing machine.
It's a treat restringing with this machine! The video is about a 10min summary of restringing one of my racquets (A restringing session generally lasts about 45min in total).
