    I second the OP. Like any arena where an exchange of ideas/thoughts/opinions are shared, there is bound to be a share of conflict/disagreement. We can't let that deprive this board of those who can help the rest of us guide our kids through their junior years.

    Again, my contact: postpre@gmail.com

    I hope I'm not to blame for this! I posted two questions and next thing I know TCF and GA left ! I think TCF is really insightful and super knowledgable. I hope he returns very soon ...

    TCF has come and gone many times. He will be back, don't worry. He is just taking a break, like Nadal.

    Don't worrry TCF is to in love with me to leave this board as I am with him , we are made for eachother on here , I believe he and I have great conflict on here that benifit everyone , we flood these pages with in your face attitude that causes all on here to take side , to rethink their positions ,believe where they are is correct ,ect .

    TCF and I going at it is a good thing and sometimes gets overwhelming to that I say sorry to all but there is a lot to gleen from the exchanges .

    Ultimatley I hope I press him so hard he goes after his own daughter to prove me wrong and in the fury he has for me makes her a Champion and if that happens I will be completely satisfied .

    As for all the rest "let the game begin"

    I really like TCF. The only problem i had with him was when he attacked a friend of mine on a personal level. Its one thing to talk bad about someones coaching ability but keep the personal attacks out of it. People dont realize that very hurtful things that people post here can be seen when someone googles that persons name. What if that persons child googles their fathers name and sees some of the personal attacks people post. I LOVE THIS BOARD!!! I have always tried to help people on this journey as well as learn from my fellow posters. I feel that i have alot to offer because i was a top junior as well as a top 15 nationally ranked collegiate player. I have coached for some of the best coaches in America(Nick B,Manny D,Craig J,and many others). All i asked TCF to do was to remove something personal he said about my daughters coach and he refused. I just dont think it is appropriate to post personal things on this site that can be seen by the whole world. If you think someone is a bad coach or a money making scheme its o.k but PLEASE dont attack someones family on here for the world to see. Remember that things you say can be seen by someones children and i just dont think its appropriate. I appreciate the moderators for removing those comments that were posted. TCF i look at you as someone i like to talk with daily about junior tennis. I hope you come back because you really do have some very good information to offer. I promise i will quit posting so much about my daughters coach its just exciting to be a part of the next wave of future WTA stars in the making. If we keep personal attacks off this board it will be a very useful tool for parents who are all going thru the same thing.I have always been someone who can forgive and forget.

    GA, I would probably agree that many posters including TCF and perhaps even you can go over the top at times. That's what makes this board entertaining. Having said that, I think you have mischaracterized what TCF may have said as a personal attack on the good coach's family. I believe that particular piece of information TCF identified would have been valuable and quite pertinent to any parent searching for a new coach - and would categorically have been a deal breaker in my case if I was that parent.

    I disagree. A happily married man of 12 years with two children.How does what he said have any value? That is sad if that was your deal breaker. She was 22 years old when they got married.Lets just leave it at that and move on.

    I like TCF, but he seemed to have lost credibility when he claimed that his 8 year old girl could beat AB....a thread that was taken out as well because it devolved into another one of those pi$$ing matches.

    He is certainly an entertaining and informative poster and hopefully will be back. He may have went too far in some things for some people's taste, but I ignore that stuff and focus on the useful things he posted which were plentiful. Sometimes you just can't name names. I have personally received useful information from prominent tennis people. I relay the information on this Board but I will not disclose who it is from. Some disbelieve it- and that's OK. You have to be careful about naming names on a message board.

    This is my take. I liked 60% of his posts, agreed with him 70% of the time....but got tired of the constant pi$$ing contests on several subjects (often in hijacked threads).

    He did provide some comic relief with his "stars aligning" & his 8 y/o destroying (beating them 1,1) 3 of the top 4 12 year olds in the country.

    More then likely he is feeling some kind of weird pressure ,why ? i dont know but one thing for sure i will be spending a lot of time in Fl. over the next 3 months and i am gonna have a lot of time to myself so i will be visiting a bunch of spots where TCF may be trainging a future star and i have to get it on video and hopefully i can get and interview from him also .
    i have to thanx Tenniscp for his great mind and his ability to point me in the right direction to meet up with my good friend .

    I also liked his posts, sligthly overboard at times, but overall one of the best posters

    I want him back also

    And very bad, disgusting even, like in china, deleting all his 500 posts!

    Just to clear your misunderstanding....TCF deleted his 500 posts, not the moderator. It was one of TCF's mood swing episodes. The mod. might have deleted a couple of his posts involved a person's name.

    I think many readers of this forum feel like you....his posts were frequently informative and entertaining. However, he had gone overboard at times just to prove his points and to prove others wrong.

    He had been emotionally invested and dedicated his time to this forum.
    I hope he will have time to contemplate what happened. We liked many of his posts and hope he comes back with a better version.

    #1 coach....I hope you'll get to finally meet and chat with him. I don't think it is necessary for the board to see his daughter's video. It is between you and him. I would err on respect people's privacy ie. would not want anyone to videotape my kids without my permission.

    Hope you guys could spend sometimes together there. You are perfect for each other. Couldn't believe that after all these years.....you've never met !?!

    Your characterization is correct, except that I don't really see him making those changes.

    After several self/being banned from this board, his has always come back the same poster.

    If he can get on this public forum and blast everyone and their kids then I find it completely harmless to seek him out and film all that he is and proclaims his daughter is and let this public forum view it and decide what they want .

    I love having plenty of time off and this will be a great prodject to stomp through a few tennis clubs till I strike gold and to tenniscp I say thanx for the lead .

    If you are going to blast people then expect to be blasted in return. It is just how it works. It does not matter if what you post is correct or incorrect.

    I can handle this

    ...

    Hey, I'm really loving these 25" racquets with orange balls.

    My son can really get a feel for the game and not be overwhelmed by the bounce of regulation balls.


    ...

    Now we wait.
