    Whoo, I just stuffed myself with pizza. I'll have to work those calories off tomorrow :);).

    Htour is my way of saying tour 90 w/ Hyper carbon.

    Kellen is a top 10 player on the ITF tour. He's an awesome guy. Yea, the pro's I know barely post. But they all have MSN. lol

    haha i watched kellen damico play a guy from my team at intersectionals a couple years ago. My guy was cramping and Kellen kept trying to make fun of him for cramping. He didnt seem like that nice of a guy. Maybe he is off the court

    Lol really? That's not like him. He gets serious on court though. Especially when he is losing or it is close. Was he losing?

    I have been playing since I was 13.
    I use the prince tour diablo.
    I am about a 4.0-4.5.
    I have a sw forehand, eastern 1hbh, and can serve about 105-110 max.
    I play #1 doubles for my HS team, I don't do much usta, so I am not very high ranked.

    Lol I don't comment alot on this forum, but I saw this on the forum and I had to give it up for my fellow 16 yr olds.

    This is my third yr to play I guess. It gets sorta cold in Oklahoma during the winter and I play football, so I only play in the spring and summer.

    I play with a Slazenger X-1 w/ yonex strings, I forget the name of them.

    I'm probably a 3.5-4.0 and play all-court and I serve and volley a little.

    Lol and I hate to be the Debbie Downer of this thread, but I usually play #1 singles for my high school team, but recently got in a car wreck and both dislocated and fractured my hip, so I'm out for the whole tennis season, and I don't play USTA, but I might have to start after this.

    Gear: Started with some walmart cheapie, then a Head i.x3, on to a Head Flexpoint Heat, then PD w/Cortex, and now two RDS 001 Mps:)

    Playing level: 4.0 - 4.5

    I started two and a half years ago(this is my second school tennis season). I play #1 singles on my team. I know there are going to be doubters as to my rating, but I have a 5.5 level coach, and my best friend plays ITF. I am almost more of a basketball person, I swung varsity my freshman year, and now sit bench for varsity lol, so I would say I am pretty athletic.

    Height/Weight/ect: 6'0" 135 lbs(mostly why I can't play varsity) and can JAM.

    Playing style: Lefty baseliner, like to come to net a lot, heavy topspin off forehand side, flat 2 hander. Like to hit angles and use my lefty serve(tops out at 107 on radar).

    I'm going to tell you all now, sakumo is not a 6.0 player. first of all 6.0 players won't brag about it, and ofthen won't be afraid to review their identities like sakumo is. 120mph serve? all you have to say is your #1 on the team? no usta rank? no national status?
    dude you better get real pretty fast if you think your going to be pro. I'll take a bet that your only some 3.5-4.0 JV H.S kid bashing other kids on your team thinking youve arrived or something. wait until you get to the real stuff, maybe some local tournaments and they'll put you away like theres no tommorow.

    Gear: Started with a walmart cheapie as well, went to and wilson n-blade and didn't like how light it was, then to a OS Wilson Hammer XP H110 (cheap performance racket), now i'm playing with a Babolat Pure Drive Roddick + and a Babolat Pure Storm MP. Carry a Head Flexpoint Bag/Babolat Tournament Bag for tournaments.

    Playing Level: 4.0

    Started playing 8 months ago and am playing for my school (first year playing) was playing #3 in singles but a day I was sick I was challenged for my rank and I was knocked down to #6 (still starting) my coach is about 5.0 to 5.5 playing level

    Height and Weight: 5"11 150 lbs

    Playing Style: Agressive baseliner and only plays net if nescessary. Brutal backhand slices and hard topspins give my opponents the most trouble. My swinging volleys as well tend to tire them out. Uses two handed backhand/ one handed for slices. Serves clocks at tops 90 mph

    well you cant say that not really knowing him. He could well be one of the top juniors in the country and be a 6.0. Nobody can really say for sure except him

    Lol you obviously didn't read any posts before this. Dumb ***, first off, I didn't say my rank because I don't want people to know who I am, second there are about 5 or 6 6.0's on this board, I am one of them. Actually as of my last ITF ranking I could call myself a 6.5, but I do still play 6.0 opens, not 6.5 (I don't even know if there are 6.5 opens where I live:confused: ) Anyway, you need to stop criticizing, and just live with people who are better then you, end of story. Lol sorry I just read your post again: What a stupid ass, I play ITF, what do you play 4.0's get a life and stop bashing to make your sorry ass feel better. I could easily have 2 or 3 people post here and make you sound like a dumb ass. If you want to play, I will seriously fly down to where you live and 6-0 6-0 your sorry 4.0 ass. I'm tired of people on this board like you talking out of their ass. Get a life moron.

    tangies08: Yea, he's a character, really funny.

    ok sakumo so you self-rate a 6.0, but atleast tell the board who you are...i mean what is your malfunction about not reviewing your identity??? i suppose it's because your just lying? i'll personally take back what i said up there if you can show some proof that your an itf/6.0 player.

    oh yes and it would be nice if you could seriously fly down to where i live. maybe you might learn to be realistic in your judgments about your NTRP rating! but honestly though if you really are a 6.0 player then just fly down and play me. just put your email here and i'll give you the location/etc. k?

    Don't sweat it sharpy. This kid is not a 6.0 player, that's for sure. Those kinds of people like sakumo are just plain inmature. If he thinks he is a 6.0 player he should atleast post a video or a ranking... Anyone can just come on these boards and claim a rating. By the way this is my bio:

    Name: ANYONYMOUS
    NTRP: 7.0 That's right. Won tons of majors... oh wait that's pete sampras. nevermind.

    BTW, I have a 140 mph serve like roddick see im good huh??

    Thats a good example of SAKUMO

    It's alright buddy. I don't really care what you guys think. I might post a video, I've thought about it, and I was going to but my cam is broke at the moment, so when I fix it I shall. But on a realistic note, I am in the top 30 on JR ITF. If you believe me I honestly don't care. People like you are insignificant in my life, you're like a bug, just waiting to be squashed. Why do you think if you try to talk to a famous person they don't talk back. It's because you aren't worth their time. So next time your fantasizing about Andy, remember you will never get him. But you know if you read my other posts, I DON'T tell you who I am because last time I did, I got way too many PMs and such, quite annoying. Anyway, I think Duzza knows who I am, so you could as him if I am faking or telling the truth, but whatever. I don't really need jealous people like you talking to me.

    tennisace432: I would work on your tennis not your insults, they both suck, but your tennis is more important.

    I guess so. But their ceriousity and stupidity means me losing my anonymous status, which I don't want to do again. I'm glad to see not everyone on this board is stupid jealous bashers.

    How long have you been playing? almost 2 and a half years, not seriously until last summer
    What equipment do/have you used? started w/ prince more performance (or somethin like that) and currently using an LM4, first shoes were k-swiss from academy but i dnt even know what they were called, now use breathe free IIs, always use wilson pro overgrip, used babolate pure drive (i think team standard) for about 2 months
    Whats your playing level? err...dnt really know. intermediate i guess
    Whats your playing style? great 2H crosscourt BH, baseliner in singles, volleyer in doubles, most powerful shot is a forehand return down the line, prefer singles due to really bad experiences with my former doubles partner
    Ranking? Teams? on high school JV team. we dont really do ladder matches, we just play for spots in tournaments so we're not exactly ranked

    sakumo's a fake. he's got nothing to proove himself to who he claims to be. sakumo: i never said i was a top junior or anything like that, so yeah you can bash me saying im a 4.0 or whatever...the point is i have a problem when your probably a 4.0 yourself claiming to be top 30 itf, which is bs. i just looked at the rankings and all and your no where close on the list.

    as for saying that you already reviewed your identity earlier, that's bs also because you know in this forum you can view past posts and no where in all your posts do you show your identity.

    you cant fool me man, nice try though.

    look all of you trying to get on sakumo just stop. there are plenty of US juniors that are 6.0's. trust me. If you play nationals and watch the top juniors in 18's and ITF's they are all 6.0 or higher. U.S juniors who could be 6.0's. Kecki, Damico, Boyajian, Wil Spencer. Those are just a few.

    700 in the Men's? I guess that's right because that's what they do atm. I'm like 1980 :p but I got a few more points at an 18s just the other week so hopefully moving up. 700 is very good for a 16 yr old especially since there aren't too many points given out in 16's. What part of Australia are you from?

    edit: Edwin Smith? :D I hope so because I'm very good at finding people

    Was it you? :p It says you're about 900 atm....but I'm not sure you may be on more. I had 2 points at the end of last year and was 1980, now I'm on 2 at 1800 odd :confused:

    LOL using my P I skills. I checked your other posts, you said you were born on Donald Young's bday, so I just typed in that date, there were only 2 16 yr olds, you and Dayne Kelly (ranked 59 awesome player) on tha day :p. I'm 17, I'm probably not as good as you lol but you never know, the rankings don't mean much I find, especially since Men's tournaments get about 200 for winning 1st round, check out Hewitts rank :D.

    Good stuff, you play many AJR's? It's hard for other states to get higher ranks I've seen, I mean most of the National's are played in Victoria and more than half the draw is Victorians too.
