I'd like to see CharlieFeder's serve.
I am already in Northen California. See u there boys and gals
What ntrp level are you?
5263 and Eliza. I wish to see them play. they talk the talk in another thread so I would like to see them play.
Bahahaha! Apparently they sell hard liquor at the USO. I was expecting him to go over the rail. The stairway was probably the safer exit.
Yes, but for every BBill we lose, two more take his place.
I"m in SanPablo, just N of ElCerrito on the EastBay side of SanFrancisco. I"m falling well into 3.5's by now, but can hit 4.5 shots if given any time at all and able to reach the ball (sprained ankle still doesn't allow me to run}.
Phone is 510-501-1702, drive a really bad 1979 Van that doesn't allow much travel, but can bike 10 miles any direction.
Weekdays only, weekends are for surfing and hanging with g/f.
mtommer and I hit today and had a good time. He took video and will probably post it soon. mtommer, thanks for driving up.
113 pages and not one substantial video of two members hitting. Mods need to nuke this thread
You are in NYC? can you lower your rate to say $25? lol
tennis lessons are expensive (playing a match with a good player is like taking a lesson)
there's this his school kid who coaches beginners. he isn't very good and his rate is $60/hr.
Glad to be there! Danno123 kicked my behind too!
Was the deer still in the road when you were leaving the club?
Does substantial have to equal fantastically great tennis? If not, holds on ta' yer hat. It'll be a few days but I'll be posting our two sets we played.
yeah - this place is too much hat and too little cattle.
any video is good video.
You haven't seen the video yet!
Quality of tennis isnt what’s important but I’m sick of looking at people filming with their Iphones vertical so it looks like looking through a slit, or people filming from the side so you can’t see “tennis” but just someone’s ugly stroke, etc. Just bad video is what kills it not the tennis itself.
Okay folks, here's the video. BTW, it's completely unedited so there's going to be lulls here and there for ball pickup etc. Hopefully the only embarrassing thing I did was my play, lol! Most of the game play is there. I couldn't get the second, end, part to transfer due to a memory card error. I nailed my camera at one point and that's probably what caused the information to become corrupted.
danno123 and mtommer playing.
^^both of you guys can play! bravo.
how nice it is to see faces, instead of endless theoretical tennis, like walking every batter etc.
Thanks for posting that. It's tough to tell from the video, but mtommer's serve is very tough to handle. It's also apparent from the video that I need to get more pace on my serves.
mtommer tagged his tripod with a serve during our second set and actually broke off a piece of it. I'm not surprised that the camera lost the data.
We'll have to do it again some time this winter.
edited to add: wow, I had no idea my first serve motion was so relaxed (i.e., slow). After the first service game, I only missed 2 first serves, which basically means I don't even have a first serve - I have a second serve and a slightly slower second serve.
Video compilation one of my fans put together of my greatest tennis moments.
you swiss are so emotional.
FabFed, HoodMan, nadal_Slam_King, BobFl, TheF1Bob, and Marc Hanscus. Best play by a poster so far would be Drakulie imo.
JD will NEVER post a video of himself. I'm willing to put money on it.
Nazdar hosi I'm from Bratislava but I live in Australia for past 25 years
I can post a vid soon of me and finalfantasy hitting
OK here is mine nowhere near modern hitting.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4okcPKREls
nice hitting, where in oz are you?
Thanks, nowhere near your style but I'm working on making it more compact.
I'm in Brisbane btw.
23 years in Canada for me, grew up there and all. Last year moved here to Prague, a bit crazy but its working out so far. Different mentality, some of the people here are just plain nuts but the girls are nice
Spot on, on that one.
yeah its something i try to do, keeping the strokes compact..
so we played for 2.5 hrs long on monday and wednesday,, your phone only can take 50mins video each session, are you gonna post the entire 2x 50mins up or you gonna cut and paste to your benefit, like you just said to me 1 hr ago
Im in Bloomington area in Minnesota. Anyone interested in hitting with me in Bloomington south lifetime fitness this winter? They don't check the courts in the rear side of the facility.
aw, i thought you were going to say Bloomington Illinois
this is old but me and yonexpurestorm
White shirt, blue shorts. Some casual hitting
I'd like to see Torres on film.
Um, this is AFTER the ball has bounced, and it was called out.
That's not even close.
Actually, it's closer than it appears on the screencap. This is far after the ball bounced but still looks like it's inside the court from that angle.
This is closer to the bounce:
Although it was still most likely was a bad call (or we didn't notice that the guy in black actually gave the other the point)
Makes his mistake that much less dishonorable
Haha I was just giving him a hard time because it wasn't even close
Anyone interested playing a match with me so we can post on here and give this thread more justice?
Sure, if you fly me out to Minnesota.
Come to Indiana and I'll do best of 3
curious about the mythical torreball eh?
Yes, yes I am. He always has something to say about this and that; so it would be nice to see what he can do with a racket.
PICK UP NAMEs AND MAKE A POLE would be better.
I thought you said weekends are for snorting Cortex with Craigslist hotties.
This thread is awesome! Anyone in the Houston area willing to hit around, let me know.
THIS. the guy is just stupid lol
Separate names with a comma.
