  1. Hi, Karin!
    I have a couple ideas about your racket!
    Let’s talk…

    Best regards,

    Steven Williams

  2. I would like to purchase 2 pair of the women’s size 9 NikeCourt Flare, in the white with silver. Please let me know where I can purchase. Thanks

  3. Dear Brinke,

    I read your article on “Charge your game with Volt”, and I thought you may be interested in a new app that I created for tennis. I am the creator of the TennisKeeper app ( because I couldn’t find any tennis app that would let me track my tennis activities such as the matches I played or the lessons I took. There are many apps for running, workout or diet, but there isn’t any fitness apps specific for tennis.

    Please let me know if you are interested in hearing more. Hope to hear from you. Thank you.

  4. Hi Tennis Identity!

    First of all, I want to say thanks for supporting me on Instagram! I’m always happy to find out when you like my photos! It really means a lot to me =]

    If possible, I would LOVE to see an article about casual-wear tennis shoes. Casual-wear tennis shoes are shoes that can be worn both on the court AND with a pair of Jeans on a nice night out. Recently, Adidas released the Barricade 2016 Mustachio, and I believe casual-wear tennis shoes are the direction of future tennis shoe models for all manufacturers. Personally, I think the best shoe that fits this category currently is the Asics Gel Resolution 6 because of its unique silhouette and various colorways.

    Please let me know what you think!

  6. Hi Karin,
    I am a tennis professional at a very busy club in Southern California. My wife is a garment consultant and our daughter currently is playing professional tennis on the ITF circuit. Our daughter was finding it difficult to find outfits that fit or that she liked fashion wise. We made an outfit for her to wear on the circuit and it was a big hit. Spectators and players asked where to get the outfit she was wearing.
