Five Point Friday

Here’s your roundup of the five most interesting things I’m enjoying or thinking about this week.

1.) Types of Strings [Explained]

Tennis strings play an integral role in the performance and feel of a tennis racquet, but they don’t always get the attention they deserve. In this week’s video, I explore the five primary types of tennis strings to help players determine which kind are the best for their individual needs.

2.) Federer Out Until 2021

On Tuesday this week, Roger Federer announced he’ll be out for the remainder of what’s left of the 2020 season. He had a setback on his right knee surgery from February of this year, so he had a follow-up procedure. As sad as Fed fans have been to hear the news, it’s about as good a time as ever to take extra time to get healthy with the pro tour on pause.

3.) Genius Plays in Tennis

Whenever I stumble upon a video compilation worth sharing, I like to pick out a few of my personal favorites. I gave up counting after seven – this one is jam-packed with good stuff and an entertaining watch.

4.) Painful Game of Butts Up

If you’ve ever been part of a game of butts up, you know the consequences of losing can be painful, but these guys take things to a whole new level.
