Why what were you thinking?
I guess no BO today. :-( It's still raining in Winter Park.
What about tomorrow at noon? you guys still doing that?
PP - going for tomorrow if weather permits. forecast was low for rain today but maybe PS jinxed it...j/k.
lmao!!!111 that pic is priceless... hahaha
PP, we will play for sure tomorrow. 6 hours of tennis here we go
BC, I really did jinx it. I brought all my tennis gears and am even wearing tennis shoes right now. we may still be able to squeeze in 1-2 hr later in the afternoon if we get lucky, though.
If it doesn't rain anymore I think we are good for 3pm...
I'm here now and courts will be dry in 30 min. Doesn't look like it will rain.
Lucky *******s...I will be dreaming about BO on my red eye from Cali
Yes awesome..I am all about it. Noon, correct? I will be there for my first BO.
You guys need me to bring anything, just let me know. Excluding cocaine and wh*res of course. Figured I'd make the preemptive strike on that one..lol.
Charlie Sheen is that you?
Hey people, Tebow and I will be at BO in 15 mins...
c u there
haha..Will you be there tomorrow?
If my wife lets me I have not seen her all week so tennis might be kind of touchy subject:
"Hi Babe I missed you oh BTW see you later I will be playing tennis for 5 hrs now"
I might have a problem:
Tell her that I will be there and we havent hit in almost a year. That should take care of it. haha.
Fricking rain. Tomorrow I'll be there at 11:00, even if i have to serve a monster kick serve run to the other side and return it lol
I heard. When I started playing again at age 30, I decided to jump right in and sign up for a singles league. I was winning the first few games handily and then I was out of breath. So my opponent wisely started drop shotting me and a few games later the calf muscle went. I think I was out 3 weeks.
Just make sure it does not bother your elbow.
wasn't PS's day to play...
heh sorry guys I brought the rain with me. I got to hit about 6 practice serves lol
please bring us the rain tomorrow, please rain please rain please rain please rain please rain please rain please rain please rain please rain please rain please rain lots of rain lots of rain lots of rain rain cats and dogs
reverse psychology lol
Hey guys are we getting together to hit or play some at Blanchard park tomorrow (Saturday) Let me know so I can go. Plus at what time. Thanks Mig-29
Mig-29 you are cleared to initiate your landing sequence at 12PM ET! Location: Blanchard Park
Hey Mig and rest of the BO I might be there if not have a great time
I'll be there earlier. Probably by 11:00. Im actually goingo to bed with my tennis gear, shoes included lol
this actually might work.
Played 3 sets today. Used NXT Control and won the first set easily. Switched over to Prince Premiere LT and lost the second set. So I went back to the NXT Control and won the 3rd set.
How's NXT Control? probably not very durable? I have a set Wilson sent me few months ago. broke the string today so need to restring tonight. Should I hybrid it with something else (I have some cheap nylon, gosen ice poly, and luxilon m2)
Rains reportedly coming in the early afternoon but later should be clear . . .
NXT Control is a poly/multi hybrid all in one string. I got 4 sets on it so far and it still is in decent shape.
For those of you who have not visited the world famous Mikeler's Multis thread, drop in and read some reviews. I just posted my NXT Control review:
are we still good for 11?
I will be there at 12. My negotiations for 11 failed
ill be there at 12 if it looks ok outside
OK, who's gonna wake up Dean? lol
We got lucky with the weather today.
The injury appears to have not been as serious as I had originally thought. I'm still walking gingerly but the normal motion is improving each day. I still plan on taking time off - probably 2 weeks. I dont want to rush it.
Sounds like your calf strain was about the same grade as mine. It took me 3 weeks to get back on the court. The nice thing is, any other lingering injuries usually disappear when you take an extended break from tennis.
Yeah - I think I need a break mentally, also.
I played the guy you got hurt against twice in league matches years ago. Not fun returning the serve of an ex-MLB player but once you get the ball back he is inconsistent.
Did you beasts hit Blanchard on Sunday too?
I went home and strung up some Typhoon..it's a little high, at 59#s, but I figured out how to get the tension better. Like BobFl has said, the dropweight is usually 4 pounds less off the stringer. Over night the tension dropped 2 more pounds.
Anyway, what I was not doing was raising the tension 5 pounds on the last pulls of the mains. That is key to getting the tension right for me.
I was a little envious between BC's 93 Square inch prestige and Bob's 93 SQ inch Black Ace. I love those smaller heads..they just feel so easy to swing. Only thing about that microgel prestige that messes with my head is the real short grip length.
I'd shank balls like crazy with those smaller heads.
chores, etc nixed hitting Sunday. think the MG Prestige Pro is closer to 94 as compared to Tebow's Bio 200 (95 sq in head). imagine the MG PMid less than 90. weight is 12.2 oz for the strung MG PP i've been using.
curious what my serve speed is averaging these days. feels like i'm getting more pace lately since changing to a more shoulder friendly serve style.
So BC, your racquet I hit with was the MG Prestige Pro? I have always liked it, the Black Ace gets compared to it a lot.
I don't really shank that much with Mid size sticks..it makes no sense, but I seem to hit fine. I am a huge Safin fan and always loved how he crushed with his PC600s. That is a little small, but 93-95 is definitley doable for me. I noticed a difference as soon as I hit with BC's Prestige..it is heavy, but swings light. I feel like you can get more racquet head speed with a smaller head, but that could just be in my mind.
I am not sure how hard my serve is, but I am not going for big ones yet. Just trying to get going with nice placement and spin. Huge difference for me in going more eastern. That really changed it up for me. I feel like I can do different variations just with slight changes in toss placement. I double faulted a lot less, but that sun in the face was a challenge..lol.
Will be trying out Tecnifibre X1 Biphase tomorrow. Looking forward to trying it out.
Hey PP, it was nice to see you on Sat Yeah, we played on Sun too
PS my BA is 98in. I hope you are not disappointed
Haha..good to see ya Bob, glad you liked my outfit as well. All purchased at Ross if you ever want to recreate my fashion!
You are tall enough to make the 98 look like a 93..lol. But I want to try a mid again for fun sometime.
New world record for the fastest serve!
Here is the TTW link:
I bet LeeD could break the fastest serve record.
I am sure he could if he serves with his mouth...
Or his fingers doing the typing here.
Man, I never get tired of watching the 2009 Australian Open final. That's THE BEST match ever. That' a tennis lesson from both of them. I feel like playing immediately. Does anyone want to play right now, I think they never shut the lights off at UCF LOL
