Spencer vs. Chris
Wilson Blade 98S, weighted up to 11.7 oz, 6pts head light and a 318 swingweight. Strung with Lux ALU 15 at 50 lbs. Shoes for this Shotgun would be the Asics Solution Speed 2, adidas Barricade Crew socks.
My strategy was simple. To any opponent, I will do anything within the rules to annoy them. If a drop shot feed is within the rules, then yeah, let’s give it a go. I’m also good at giving my opponents no rhythm. Brad Gilbert is someone I would model my game after. The well timed shank winners also tend to put my opponents in a great mood. Have you ever hit a full swing overhead for a drop shot winner? Didn’t think so. I have. It takes a bit of skill to hit the ball at the tip of the racquet to produce the backspin required for such a shot. No, I didn’t do it in this Shotgun tournament, but just the fact that I’m capable offers plenty of intimidation.
