Well, I have a tournament coming up so I've been busting my @$$ in the gym and with fitness, but haven't gotten much court time. The people I've been planning to hit with have backed out all week so I've been forced to practice serves on my own and hit against a wall. Thought I'd post a couple vids of me hitting just so you can put a face to a name. I have serve videos I will try to post tomorrow.

And to answer your question, yes. That is a shank that ends the second video. LOL

Walks and moves in a way that reminds me of R. Genepri.

Never brake for a squirrel if you are biking. Being nice won't help your tennis.

Used to hear that from everyone when I trained at Newk's haha. I used to have a goatee too and wear a lot of sleeveless shirts.

Thanks! Wanna get some live play but I haven't been able to get another person to hit yet. I'm playing this morning though so we will see what I can do

At least you mind is not littered with images of recent matches, so you can start with a clean slate.
What level did you enter? 4.5 or Open? You hit good enough to win 4.5, if you don't go wild and undisiplined.

Well I'm stuck with a 5.5 rating because I played d1 so I'm playing open. I was ranked 23 in Texas in open a few years ago when I was able to play more tournaments. I consider myself a strong 5.0 if I had a rating true to my skill. I beat all of the benchmarked 4.5s that I've played and the 5.0s that we have in my area
