Alright, to "borrow" from the Samster/Saram/Skraggle threads (consider this an undercard to the epic Samster/Saram battle), I've challenged OnyxZ28 to a singles match, best of 3 sets. Winner gets lunch/dinner. Video of the match will be posted online.

Promo video here:

(Guess which one is the sandbagger and which one is the poser?)

Also, inspired by skraggle, jayserinos99 must call all of his serves, a la pool, and must also hit said serves in a manner such that they pass through my strike zone, like baseball. I will be the judge of said rule and have sole discretion in its enforcement. Failure to hit a serve in a manner as described shall result in a fault.

I predict a straight set win for OnyxZ28. I am on the Saram Sonic diet plan.

This is excellent circumstantial evidence that jayserinos99 has bet against himself and is going fer the monaay!

Yeah but there's no video of you at the net either so maybe you're holding something back...lol

I can confirm that jayserino is a skilled volleyer with exceptional touch :cool:

Alright everyone, OnyxZ28 and I played this afternoon. It wasn't pretty. Onyx's style is to not give you any rhythm whatsoever so I had a hard time trying to settle down. He makes you play his game and I couldn't get into the rallies until the 2nd and 3rd set. By the 4th set, I was tired and started to serve some puffball kickers which thankfully he missed on some crucial points. We have video but it was pretty ugly. We plan on playing again and posting the video of that. Final score: J - 5-7, 7-5, 6-3, 6-2.

EDIT: so after rewatching the video, it was really 5-7, 6-2, 6-2, 6-2. i thought it was much closer score-wise. it certainly felt close during the match that's for sure.

saram

Very close match in the beginning. I'd like to see two fit players going at it in the near future!

Well done, BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, actually the first set has a giant 1999 Spurs championship type asterisk next to it -- down 5-6 in the first, J tanked the first set in a tribute to Nellieball and the Warriors.

If anything, you're like Nellieball. You force others to play YOUR game; in this case, it's trying to handle all that power and hope you can hang in there.

I was so happy I got those serves on video. Nobody would have believed otherwise!

And in the previous match my opponent hit a tweener off of one of my lobs and we got that on video too, so it was pretty cool.

Nor does he intend to learn, or attempt.

You assume correctly. I never hit them either, it just doesn't seem like the most practical shot, when you could hit a forehand or backhand with good topspin, and clearance and get yourself back in the point, rather than the showy shot and hope for the best.

I have a question Jo11y... Do you have ANYTHING that resembles a second gear in terms of pace?!?! Geez, just watched your hardcourt video, and you were just hitting the crap out of the ball (which didn't make for very many rallies at all...).

1st gear: hit the crap out of the ball
2nd gear: bludgeon
3rd gear: break the ball
4th gear: break the sound barrier
5th gear: speed of light
6th gear: ludicrous speed

I am better at it now. People used to say that I only had 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 6th gear, and then hyper drive. No 4th or 5th.

Another friend said "J doesn't have 'Plan B' he has 'Plan A' and 'Plan A+'"

I didn't put up the normal rallying, because I didn't think anyone would be interested, but FastFreddy asked last night, and I put up a few longer and slower rallies, I will put up some 50+ ball rallies when I hit with a different guy.

May/June or so. My body doesn't take well to short sessions in cooler weather, so I don't push it.

I will be building up to it, kind of like spring training for auto mechanics who think they are tennis players lol.

Usually take a good 1/2 hour to 45 mins to get nice and warmed up, then I can let it fly.

It is horrible in the summer, I will go through 5+ stringjobs a week. Most I ever dropped off for stringing at once was 12.

12 alu rough stringjobs at 70lb. My stringer hated me, and I hated the bill.

A tad. Nothing too big though.

Saram, what I liked about your videos was that there were quite a few rallies. When Onyx and I hit, a good chunk of the time it was serve and return. What you see in the video are basically the rallies and I don't even recall any point going more than 10 shots.
