well, it wasn't the best result but i guess i should post it. In the first match (against the 3 seed) i played very well and won in a 2 hour match 6-4 7-6, then an hour later against the 8 Seed who had lost to the 3 seed in a different tournament i LOST 7-6, 7-6, it wasn't even that the guy was just that good, i was just really tired from the first match so resorted to "almost pushing", (i came to net a few times) and i broke a string so played w/ my backup. Anyway,i guess the tournament is over for me so......... lets see your draws

I was keeping up with him untill the 3rd game. Then after a longer point, I realized that this wasn't going to be easy. My body was physically drained after the week of sickness I thought I was well but my body was saying different. Usually I'm the person that's never tired.

how were you down match point first round? if the tiebreak in the second set was 7-5, then its impossible for him to have had a match point. did they report the score wrong?

i was recently playing the tournment in rome georgia, it was a level 2, i won my first one by default and then lost my second, i won my third and had to play a kid that was ranked 37 in the fourteens. He just moved up to the sixteens and is a really good player. I lost my first set 6-0 and then went up 5-3 in the seond and was serving it out when the blister about the size of a quarter poped an om hand and i had no ability to swing the racket anymore. I feel as if i would have won the second and had the momentum for the third set tiebreak, but i guess ill never know.

you won the first set 6-0 and then lost the last 2 sets 6-3 and 7-5? man that must have been a hard pill to swallow ;) anyways, beating the second seed 6-0 in a national competition in the semi's is definitely something to build on :)

There is stuff you can do. You can call your opponent to the net and talk it over and try to work it out or you can payback call his next clear winner out or you can call for a umpire to watch the match. When I first started USTA last year I played a guy that was ranked much higher than me. I won the first set then in the second set he called any thing that was near the line out. I was pretty mad and upset someone watching said I could call a umpire so I did cause I didnt know back then. The calls all of a sudden got a lot better. I still lost the match in the tie break but I didnt get cheated out of it.

wow, i played fairly horribly this weekend. In the first match i played probably the worst i have in a loooong time, however, i got really lucky with an easy first rounder and just squeaked out a 7-5, 7-6 victory (shoulda been like (6-1, 6-2). In the 2nd match i probably played the best i did all tournament, i beat the 9th seed 1-6, 6-2, 10-7. The first set he killed me but in the 2nd i finally figured out his game and it was good from there, still pretty physically draining. The 3rd match was ok, i won the first 4 games but then (i was pretty tired i had just finished my other match about an hour before) i started to lose focus and get tired, he won 6 games in a row, before i could blink an eye. 2nd set was absolutley horrible, he went up 5-1, i then made a slight comeback to 5-4 and in my service game, was down 0-40, won 2 points and then hit my hardest serve of the day, t he guy like dove and barely got it, i basically already thought the point was over but ran to the ball, took a huge swing and........put it into the net :( oh yea an interesting note the kid had a 2-handed backhand and forehand.


Oh yea, brayden i think i saw you, did you play on court 2 at like 11:45 on Sat.? The kid i saw was wearing all adidas stuff including a hat, a wilson racquet and adidas shoes

Funny, Brayman, the tournament is in Nashua, NH. Every entrant is from Mass, except for one kid. And he lost 1 and 1 in the 1st rd. Wha? Do people in NH not play tennis much? I know, I know...NE Jrs unite...but something is up with that. Maybe you have an explanation.

Well, good luck, man.

300Gkid
02-10-2007, 06:54 AM
yea, i've noticed that too, almost every player in from MA, i think somewhere around 90 of the top 100 are too.


P.S Brayden, did u switch to the LM instinct? And online it says ur playin the number 8? anyway he's pretty good i've seen him play, uses an extreme power game, not much attention to slice, basically just hammers away.

brayman9
02-10-2007, 08:02 AM
well i guess it should be MAss. juniors unite because out of RI,MA,and CT. THeir are harldy any good players.

I love to play power players and no those are my old sticks the instincts. But if i win i have to play 8 am tommorow and it is and hour and a half drive

Brayden, yea sure that'd be good, just let me know time and place, i should be playing more dubs to get ready for HS anyway. Unfortunatley, i'm going to be away (stupid cousins baptism) for most of my Feb. break. (I will be gone Feb.17- Feb. 21). So i could play anyday this week, friday maybe? or on the 22nd of Feb., from the 23-25 im gonna be playing a tourny in NH. However, like always i'll prolly lose before Sunday so that is a possibility too. Where were u thinking of playing?

Like most lifelong tennis dorks, I have always liked looking at draws....names, places, scores. So you are playing a guy literally named Tony Lamborghini. That is one cool name. Though, you've got to wonder exactly which level of Guidodom the parents came from.

Good luck guys.

well... i won both of my matches today. I won the first 6-2 6-2, i played fairly well, the 2nd was absolutley horrible. I won the first set 6-0 in like 15 minutes, the kid was a definite pusher and in the 2nd set i played horribly, i had been winning by hitting the ball hard and making him move but all of a sudden i kept hitting into the net:sad: . I lost the 2nd 1-6 and in the 3rd i basically "out-pushed" the kid to win 10-6

300Gkid
02-27-2007, 05:21 PM
yea, he looked ok, small but good

I definitley should have played the final, i had a cold the entire weekend but had a 101 fever Sunday. I decided what the hell i might as well play (wanted the points ;) ), after the first set i basically ran out of energy and spent the next hour wheazing (sp?) and chasing after his shots. Ah well, i would've sucked in the final anyway so i wasn't all that dissapointed. Tanna wasn't that good, i figure on a normal day i could beat him 3 and 3. He was wicked annoying though, every time he hit a good serve or won a good point, he would like point at me and pump his fist and yell COOOMMEEEEOOOOOONNNNN and then look up to the crowd. I'm also fairly sure he cheated me out of a game at some point, he was very competitive, lol i was too drugged on ibuprofen to care.

How did ur tourny in FL go?

brayman9
02-28-2007, 02:02 PM
I played ok for the condtions. (hot sun 80's, strong winds, funny bounces). I know i am making excuses but i haven't played outdoors in months and it was really different. I could not but anything away. I didn't know the leveling but found out i played like a meduim level 6.

I won my first match 6-1 6-1 and the kid just tried to outhit me. Not smart i play best against those people. Then i lost 6-1 6-3 to the #1 in the quarters that had played at IMG Bolleterri acedmy (sp?). He was good but i might have beaten him indoors. I made way to many errors probly had 1 winner for 4 errors.

But I was impressed with my progress cos i was 5-0 down and got it to 5-3 before I lost. I didn't throw a paddy and spit the dummy, and I'm going into another tourney in a week, instead of being scared away.

its not even that we want to prove that we are superior to you new englanders i dont even hold a grudge against you guys. you guys are not a weak section and plus look at it this way noah rubin can smack most of your players and look aaron revzin is your number one... thats not too great our former number ones in the twelves especially one who is 12 in the nation, tj pura can whip him. not to mention the 14's, 16's and 18's can all beat your age groups respectively. and to prove my point look at past zonals.

mrmo1115
03-16-2007, 02:58 PM
and to mention... mjeez bet you wouldn't beat noah rubin and if you did u must be in the 14's age group or older. noah rubin is riding on a full sponsership from head... won the dam last national open so dont underestimate him bet he can beat every single one of you new engladers cept for a few and i admit some are good.

This was my most recent tournament... I am Robert S. on consolation draw line 17-18

I withdrew first round, because of a traffic jam, that forced us to be late...

I played really bad tennis second round... (Almost lost to a guy ranked in the 80's for our section ><) I was down 5 match point in the third set tiebreak, and i started underhand serving. On my match point, he tried to underhand serve on double faulted.

My dad was ****ed after the match, so I went to the hotel with my doubles partner, and his older brother.

The next day, i woke up at 11:20, and the match was at 11:30, so i didn't have breakfast and just went to play my match....

The guy i played was ranked in the twentys in California, and he was whooping me in the first set. I didn't hit a single winner the whole set....

I started the second set by winning the first two games by pushing. Then he came to net more, and went up 5-2 40-15, then he started to choke. He double faulted twice, aced me once, to get in ad-in, and double faulted two more times. At 5-3, i held at love with 2 aces, and he started spraying his shots all over. At 5-4, he had 3 more match points, but i won those three points by pushing. Then I held to go up 6-5. At 5-6, he started to "try" to push, but he kept dumping balls into the net. And i won set point with another underhand serve :)

Tiebreak:
I lost the first point, when he hits four or five good shots in a row, which i push back, and then he hits a drop shot. I fall over on my ankle, and the guy starts laughing. I make a inappropriate finger gesture, and start the next point.

He then wins 5 points in a row to go up 6-0 when we change sides.

I get really ****ed, and start hitting every shot as hard as i can, and it goes to 6-6. I pull out an underhand serve, which he kills, and then i get aced to go down 6-8.

I keep drop shotting him at 6-8, and he keeps making weak approaches, where i can pass him.

I get to 9-8, and i hit as hard as i can, and he misses his backhand wide.

I go up to the net to shake hands, and he doesn't even shake, he goes up to me and says, "*** You!!!' and he leaves.

I see my next match is in 10 minutes, and i haven't had breakfast or lunch, and its already 2:14 pm, and i'm super tired...I tell my doubles partner, and the tournament director i have to withdraw....

DAMN! i thought i had a chance to at least get to the Quarterfinals.... the guy in the next round... i've beaten him in practice before...

i thought i had a chance




I'm playing a tournament in Long beach next weekend... i hope i have a chance...

wats up with all this underhand serves robert. looks like u won that match by annoying the crap out of him which is good for you but not pretty to watch. i dunno if im against ur strategy in that close match you had winning 12-10 or so when the other guy didn't shake your hand. another thing you wake up that close to your match? i wake up to have enough time to eat breakfast, warm up, and etc.

300Gkid
03-17-2007, 04:16 PM
WOW, i just got my butt kicked 0 and 1 by Brandon Thompson. Now that i look back on it it was a little closer than that but stilll..... Anyway, i had 4 games where i had game point but couldn't pull it out, it was really stupid too because on 1 of them he hit the ball waaay out but i was at net and wasn't thinking so hit it. On another i was up 40-15 and he hit a ball long but i called it in, im not sure why, lol it was going so fast. He really wasn't all THAT good, but his serve was insane. His 2nd serve had more pace than my 1st and it was a kick serve that hopped over my head. He probably wn 75% or more of his points off service winners (in games he was serving obviously).

Anyway, a good learning expierence i guess....

03-18-2007, 05:28 AM
for one... did you find out i played julian ruffin through my ranking post? that seems most obvious... well you know i should have beaten him he may have made some tight calls but other than that he can be known as a pusher as well... i came back from 5-2 i think in the second to 5-4 but couldnt' pull it out. i mean if i had to play him again i would come in with a strategy at least and i really think i could beat him... better luck next time

So, you are from New England I see. What tournament are you guys talking about? I am from Eastern and this is my link of my sectional. Do you know any that you heard of or played?

- The first one is the 12's
- The second one is the 14's (you'll probably know many of these kids!)
I am #23 on the fist one.
http://tennislink.usta.com/tournaments/Draws/EventDraw.aspx?T=53521&E=
The one above is the 12's, the bottom one is 14's http://tennislink.usta.com/tournaments/Draws/EventDraw.aspx?T=46978&E=.
Check my ranking the on the National Standing list for the Boy's 12's

You played Zain? I practice with him all the time, he goes to the club I go to at Deer Park. Hes really good right?
Looked at the B14s, played Andrew Adams and got a bigtime ***** whooping at an L1.

I played my first tourny today. Novice. It was scheduled for yesterday but was rained out.
It's a beautiful Sunday morning and I get to play tennis. Yay!
It's either cold or I got the pre-game shivers.
8 AM... Sweet.
I played Joshua in Guys 14s.
He had a huge serve for a beginner, Ran around the backhand, and was easily pressured when I was at net.
Lost first set 4-6.
Second Set 6-2.
Third set leading 3-1. Dropped the ball. 3-6. I noticed I was rushing, trying to grab it before it slipped away but it just made it worse. But when that happened, it was too late. =/
I lost.
Two hour match. From freezing cold to burning hot. Fremont is quite a place.
There's always next time.

Which sportimes? And who was your pro? John and Bill Cook at Kings Park are phenominal. I am friendly with a bunch of Syosset and Bethpage guys too but don't know how well they teach.

Well I live in syosset, so its pretty convenient going to syosset sporttime. Only problem was, after going there for at least four years, I was still a beginner that had a decent serve. At the end of 7th grade I became more serious, started to go outside of sporttime, and then before the season started for school last year I went to deerpark and got like 10 times better in a week, so I barely made my JV team. Now, after a year at dp, (not to be cocky, but in truth) I'm probably Top 8 or Top 5 on my JV team.

Only tried syo and bethpahge.

Who was your pro at Syosset? You can e-mail me if you don't wanna broadcast it over the airwaves :)

I have seen Dante play at tournaments he is very good. He was a bad stomach problem though and that is all i know. But he kicks the crap out of the ball.

well most people don't even know where syo is so I was in those programs where you moved around (I had many pros, never took privates there) I had Jules mostly, and Brian (Red hair) and John (has a little kid named josh). Also had Russ (Gigantic), and andres a few times. I did take a few privates with Jules, but overall in sporttime you don't get better when you play with people that can barely hit the sweetspot 1/50 times.

Yeah Russ is pretty cool. Haven't seen him in over a year, or anyone sporttime really. You wouldn't know Jason would you? He was the head at syosset sporttime under carl for a few years ago (ricardo took his job since he moved somewhere else), He was one of the nicest people at sporttime and one of the best players :)

I still can't believe you got nailed below the waist by the ball:confused: . I'd thought you'd win. Do you remember that bet we had?:grin:

Anyway, the Bullfrog here isn't in the Summer, it's held Feb 3-5 every year, sorry about that. Only major tournament in MS in the summer is the Qualifier (June 2nd) but it's closed for only Mississippi residents.

Any more questions feel fee to ask.

I'm in 18s and I live in Ridgeland (right next to Jackson). That's a little less than an hour drive (Yazoo is about 35-40 mins, and I know a shortcut to Benton from a friend, so about 45 mins to Benton)

300Gkid
06-24-2007, 07:32 AM
lol well, lets see, lets just say i'm not a morning person :-( lol i lost the first 5 games, turned it around and choked in the tiebreak losing the first set 7-6 (7-2). I knew i could win and won the 2nd set 6-4. We had to play a 10 point super tie, which i absolutley despise. I lost 4 match points, at 9-7, 9-8, 10-9 and 12-11 and then lost the first match point against me by double faulting at 12-13 :( Well i am dissapointed to say the least but at least the kid i played Christian Boulanger will probably destroy either of the 2 kids he plays in the final

brayman9
06-24-2007, 07:52 AM
Play lakeville next week actualy i am not doing the todd morsilli. Boulanger is very good though taking him to a third is great

300Gkid
06-25-2007, 02:03 PM
yep, just as expected Boulanger won the next match in straights, although i do think its funny that the 2 best people in the tournament (i'm including myself here considering i took boulanger to a 3rd and should have won) were not seeded

There's the draw of one of my recent tournaments for practice. Seeded 1st; my name is Andrew Hwang. In the finals against seed 2, I was winning 5-2 then it started raining so director calls us inside to wait. It really pours for a while so my family and I leave. then i get an email saying the tournament went on and i lost due to not being there to play. does anyone else think this is ********..? basically blew away everyone and lost because of logical thinking.

That sucks. Whats ur national ranking?
