    How old are you? What level? I'm former D1 and now 34. I can still bang with D1 guys but would lose more than win. I'm not losing to a current D2 or D3 guy.

    I think LeeD could beat 67% of people that post on this board.

    I am about 5.0 and I just turned 19. My videos are online and I lost to this DI recruit from UCLA 2-6, 2-6. My alter ego Matt Linkovic is 7.0 though and has a 90 mph forehand and hits harder than Andy Murray on average. I'm not playing college, I'm going to UCLA and just play for fun now

    Cheetah, good to see your hitting finally. Gives better context to your posts here. I'd love to see you build points against a 5.0 player. Make sure to record if you get to play maxima.

    Cheetah vs me should be a good match. Hopefully Matt Linkovic shows up that day instead of Matt Lin.

    Are you the guy who was supposed to play 5263 but never did?

    I'd like to see more vid of you. It didn't seem like you were on Matt's level from what I saw, but thats just one video.

    just got it now. I've been uber busy lately. friends visiting from out of town so i'm playing tour guide. Russian olympic team member also has friends in town so she wants me to meet them blah blah blah.

    Yes I can play Sunday. You want me to bring the camera?

    Bt Johnson, I was going to ask you the same thing... What happened with the meet/match with 5263?

    OK it is 2 pm on Ct 12 - it is in the email.

    Please bring the camera. I chose the last court because we will not be bothered by the usual crowd of doubles guys who will pick on me the entire time if they notice the camera. On Court 12, we will be 6 courts away and too far for them to even see it.

    I am also playing singles at 8:15 in La Jolla, so I should be all ready and warmed up and in top form in the afternoon.

    Let me try to get a new string job tomorrow.

    Stoked to see Sureshs. I hope he wears a good outfit and a sick watch. I don't really care how he plays, more into his persona at this point.

    I have a TW dampener, that is all. My rackets are from TW too, as are my Federer shoes.

    How do I lose weight within 2 days?

    I don't wear a watch. Cell phone is enough. Sometimes though I will wear a wooden watch I purchased in Hawaii.

    I will be doing a lot of serving and playing mini points through them, as a tutorial for you.

    But my real strength is Smart Targets.

    I will also have the Head Djokovic bag I got from TW. And for those into the details, my socks are the cushioned Nike ones from TW with separate left and right pieces.

    cheetah, how long can your camera record? Do you have backup batteries and memory cards? We have the court for 90 minutes, and I am thinking I need at least an hour to make a comprehensive tutorial for arche3, covering all aspects of the game. Please charge everything fully and bring extras.

    Can you mark the target areas you will aim for with cones and possibly use colored string as a shot trajectory diagram?

    You guys need a tech crew to setup a holographic overlay of smart and deep targets over the court.

    Make sure you also film at 3000 fps. So we can have toly do an analysis afterwards.

    I think sureshs said he was clumsy. So he would trip over the colored string.

    Just took a pic of a guy serving and showed him he was foot faulting. He is mad at me.

    Cheetah vs surehs, the most highly anticipated video in TTW history.

    Helped the pro shop guy test his first Bab play frame. Hit on the wall in the parking lot and updated the data. He learnt how to download the app and use it for analysis.

    I will be hitting for an hour with someone in another couple of hours. Then back for some brunch and rest and then it will be off to the club to hit with cheetah.

    I am going to try to break in my new red Nike Federer shoes in the morning session. I have inserted a tennis ball into each of them a couple of days back to widen them out. Hope they are comfortable, otherwise have to use my old shoes.

    Back from morning hit.

    Red shoes broken in. As well as the two rackets I had strung yesterday.

    I think I will go with the green T shirt and black shorts. And a red wristband.

    Weight loss has not happened unfortunately.

    Remind me to take a Gatorade. I usually just bring water.

    Me and 5263 were supposed to hit today, but I was too tired from my morning singles league playoff match and had to postpone. He was willing to play but I was the one who called it off. It was warmer today than usual and I was pretty drained after 2 sets in the heat/humidity. We'll do it soon, I promise. Good news is I won my playoff match and am advancing to the 3rd round.

    Both appear to be 4.5 on the rise...could possibly win 5.0 Internet matches. Solid strokes and gonad placement, GOATish video editing techniques. Enjoyed the whole thing a few times now.

    Underwhelming. But with so much buildup, that was probably inevitable. I do like the green shirt/pink visor combo.

    Well I was convinced as to the outcome of a tlm vs. sureshs matchup before that video. Now, I'm not so sure. :confused:

    The video was slowed down. In reality, I move and hit much faster. We slowed it down so that you all could see the ball clearly.
