    I was gearing up for the Ducks Tennis Fan Day and I was looking at the team photos... Siobhan is a former DUCK? Yeah!

    ...that's it. A quick shout out from Eugene. :-D

    @Nostradamus,

    Thank you, that's very nice of you to say. When I think back with my horrible memory, I did play maybe a couple of them maybe freshman year, Hansen was one I think? I lost to her, 2 and 4 if I remember correctly. I would have played them more because they are in our schedule, but I spent a remarkable amount of time in my college career with back and ankle injuries (that I ended up having surgery for) so I spent a lot less time on court both training and competing than I wanted to.

    I read you use Asics Solution shoes. You state you had ankle problems, do the Solutions work well for you? I experience minor pain in my ankles when playing with the Solutions. Do you use some type of ankle brace?

    Siobhan does not wear a brace or tape her ankles.

    Since joining TW her ankles have become much stronger from running down many, many drop shots.

    PS - Siobhan, you're welcome :)

    I wonder if I ever strung Siobhan's racquets when she played at UW? :twisted:

    @Boricua,

    To be honest, I like the Solutions as speed shoe but I prefer the Resolution 4s. They just feel a little more stable, give more support and I like that slightly chunkier/safer feeling over the light and fast like the Solutions. Both are amazing shoes, I could rave about Asics all day, but the Res 4s give you the speed as well as the safety.

    My ankle has healed completely from the injury and the surgery (even tho that took years). Like Chris said (thanks, by the way, always got my back ha), I haven't worn a brace at TW, mostly because, to be honest I kept forgetting to get one, and thus I got my moving confidence back without it. (Although Chris gives me more credit, I generally just don't bother running for his dropshots and just say something rude to him instead).

    This is my favorite brace: ASO Ankle Braces http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/ASO_Ankle_Braces/descpageASO-ASOAB.html I would definitely suggest it, it has the laces that are adjustable, and the wrap around straps - it provides the best support out of any brace I've worn. Quick to put on, really supportive without having any stiffness.

    @diredesire, the only time I was going to be playing at UW (because I was injured other times we went), they actually forgot about the dual match and didn't show up at their own courts! So we didn't need any stringing done because we actually just drove back to Oregon.

    Classic. Was that a forfeit?
    (I hate to admit it, but even though I strung there for 5-6 years, I never really followed the results...)

    @diredesire,

    No I wish. We drove home then they came up to Oregon and beat us. How depressing.
