    Hi gals! I've been skimming the posts lately and thought it might be fun to take a clinic together and then have a friendly doubles match afterwards. We would all try to call the lines fairly and keep quiet as to not hinder our opponents as they are hitting their shots. Winners buy beer afterwards.

    What do you think of the pairings?

    Don't drink beer but would be up for sushi and saki.
    Anybody located in south florida? If not you are all welcome as my guests at any of a dozen great clubs down here in Broward county.

    Maybe we should make it a round robin. I prefer to play the ad side. Any strong deuce side players in the mix?

    BTW~I am located in the greater Boston area. Go Pats!

    Boston!? One of my very favorite cities, but you need to come down here to Hollywood, FL for a visit in winter if you like to play tennis. This is PRIME TIME. 70s and beautiful sun. Sorry to make you a little jealous....

    wouldn't it be fun though to have a round robin like that? Where all us "posers" could show what we're really made of on the court?! I'm up for it!

    So much is made of "grunting". It's all relative. I exhale loudly when I hit a difficult ball. Maybe you do also - big deal! It's healthy, and helps us hit through the shots! I don't agree with squealing and screeching like Aza and Sharapova, but nobody does that at my level. It's just a standard "aaaah or uuugh" sorry if that doesn't seem lady-like, but this is a sport not a fashion show.

    Agreed! I am a proponent of good footwoork and breathing/exhaling for good shotmaking...in that order.

    Ok, ladies. This is a bit freaky...to log in, and find my nick...in a thread title. :oops:

    At around the year 2 B.C. (before children), some such nonsense might have actually gotten a rise outa me. I had money and time to pursue fluke ideas...but gotta say gals, it's a pipe dream. Although someday, Cindy and I might get to mix it up. She's only a couple of hours north of me. And perhaps we've even played some similar opponents and could swap some stories.

    But...for what it's worth, I play the deuce side, am not a beer drinker and love sushi and sake. ;) Grunting, per se, doesn't bother me, I can lob...or angle off with the best of 'em...and give fair line calls. But these days, not too sure how many would want to play with me; I'm in a funk. A bad one. Perhaps that's fodder...for another thread.

    All right, AngleQueen.

    : gestures towards therapist's couch :

    Explain your funk. Go on. It's just you and me here.

    JC, I'll be down your way in a few weeks.

    Cindy and I, despite once being on the same team, seem to never come up against each other nor play with each other....so far! (and now we've even got matching dresses!)

    For those who haven't met Cindy in person, she posted a pic of herself in the Travel section. She is the one in the tight red and black suit in the picture.

    Excuse me while I spit out my sake.

    Newly "married" Mr Francis would have little interest in me. Not much "wild" about me...except that silly skirt our team picked this year. :rolleyes:

    Slightly Rubenesque, eh? What ship was that on? A tennis cruise sounds like fun. That looks like a mini court. As far as I know the only ship on the planet with a full size tennis court is the World Residentsea condo ship.

    Give me a ring!

    Well give me a shout - I'm in east Hollywood. We can play singles or I've got lots of great doubles players (men and women) to hit with. Clay or hard court, your choice!

    There are about one million sushi restaurants around here, so no worries there.

    PS I'm not really as nutty as my posts would indicate. I'm serious about my tennis game - but in friendly matches we just have fun - no arguments, angst, or self-righteousness allowed.

    JC, got your email...you may want to edit your post so that TW's 'finest' don't steal your identity! ;)
