    Actually, I am adept at the deadly tiger style, but seldom use it in tennis because of the trouble I had replacing practice partners.

    My friend, the ancient style has evolved. It is now called Jumppulse Tennis.
    Get with the game...

    Indeed? Very interesting since that style of tennis hasn't been played since the 15th century

    Tiger Style, and the Wu Tang Clan.
    Wu Tang Clan ain't nothing to *mess* with.

    Shame on a hacker that tries to run game on a hacker.

    So who are you, the Ghost-faced Driller?

    The ancient Tiger style is indeed the hardest to learn, but when mastered, is unanimously without a doubt the most deadly. Several touring professionals have used this style, although unrecognized to the untrained eye. If you can harness this power, you will one day be a true tennis master.

    ...There is another style as well which hasnt been used for an even longer time period than the Venoms of the 15th century that was spoken of. It is called the Spartan Spontaneous Suicide rush. It has been passed down for many generations in my family. However, it has never been practiced since its originating ancient ancestors, and has not been shared outside of the family via an oath of immediate death if broken. I have not taken this oath fortunately, and I may be willing to share this style with some of you if you are willing to have your entire world changed right before your eyes. It will blow your mind, and therefore one only must be serious and have discipline to train for the "triple S" tennis techniques.

    Quite, but can the triple S is an easy match up for those who have mastered the incredible Toad Style

    I havent actually been educated about the Toad style, you might have to share some information.

    At the same time, the Triple S style as I said has basically stayed within my family and blood for centuries. You may either have this style mixed up with another common variation, or it is possible you are somehow learned in the ways. Otherwise, perhaps you are family and a decendant???:shock:

    Perhaps, and how do you get so much spin from a 18x19 strung racquet?
