I'm applying for a play test job at TW and would like to ask your opinion of my NTRP rating.

Please criticize.

That was great. 6.5!

By the way, the music made me feel like I was watching an old 70's porno. :)

i'd say ur stroke mechanics r GREAT and i'd give a 5.0 ntrp... but i didn't really get to see your serve or you at the net, so i can't say for sure.

Your 1H BH looked terrible the first shot, but got better, then looked like you didn't put any topspin on it

Orly, don't be afraid of tripping over the net and making a fool of yourself. Back in high school, there was a kid who kept tripping over the hurdles and even rolled on the ground. But he got back up, kept going, and tripped over the next one again. Sure, we all laughed at him, but the coach liked what he saw and made a comment to everyone laughing at him.

i would say that the music choice along with the tight tennis shorts was more reminiscent of a 70's p*rn movie...

lol.... guess Chris is more of an old shcool guy... this reminds me D-wade making fun of Charles Barkley's shorts in that t-mobile commercial : D

donno... you'll have to ask Chris : D

BTW, would love to see more TW play testers in action <3
