    The jokes get better as the IPA consumption increases.

    I was at OTC..played until 7 or so last night. anyway there were some guys showing up for doubles that were real solid. One guy was a black dude with a bald head. He had such smooth strokes, and his volleys were nasty. Was wondering if he is an OTC guy or part of a league of some kind.

    That was probably the league that plays on Mondays. I know the team from OTC played there on Monday night and won. He must play for the other team.

    One week off from tennis and my elbow/arm are much better but still not 100%. I'm wondering if I should just continue to sit out and finally let this sucker heal.

    How was the trip?

    Tough question. Got an MRI today. Hopefully Monday morning they shoot it full of cortizone and drain this cyst.

    Lately the courts have erred on the dry side. My tennis elbow originated back from those conditions.

    ssgator - never mind the pics...must be in a "sensitive" location if MRI needed. good luck with that.

    The real test will be about 3 weeks after the cortisone wears off. If you are still feeling OK by then, you should be in the clear.

    Hello everyone:

    I'm in Orlando for about a month and am looking to play some tennis, hopefully. I'm looking for 4.5+ players to hit with, maybe play some sets, or join a regular hitting group.

    Thanks.

    Oh, my bad. Didn't mean to seem like I was being purposely elusive. I'm from Texas. Any takers on hitting this weekend though? I think I'm fairly close to the Orlando Tennis Center.

    I've got matches both mornings at OTC. Just show up around 9, you might find somebody to hit with. I'll be on the first court in front of you when you come in front of the facility.

    You want to play tennis this weekend? I thought you'd be holed up in your house with your new iPhone the whole time? :)

    It's not letting me contact/PM any members through their profiles. Or more likely, I'm not doing something right. In any case, my email is lojytx@hotmail.com.

    50's Clay court nationals started this week in Sarasota. A regular at OTC won his first round match and playing again today at 12. Waiting for the updated draw sheet. I like his draw.

    I'll check it out. My Exo Tours came in today so I have quite a bit of stringing to do the next few days.

    ssgator - thanks for posting. checked the site and know some participants. recognize at least 1 name from BITD. a few "top guns" put the racquets up after playing college whilst others went on tour.

    No rain forecast for today! It started sprinkling during the warm up last night. I broke the string on the Exo demo and played 2 games with the 7G and my arm hurts ever so slightly today. I'll be sending the remaining two off to JGads today.

    the old dude (younger than me) survives in the round of 32. too much of a drive for me to go look him up.

    I have not played him in singles yet but he has beaten just about everyone else down at OTC at least once.

    Saw a little jr player crushing it at OTC last night. Black kid, super wristy strokes. He has that extra wrist movement before he hits that seems like it would rob him of timing at higher levels, but he is really good.

    Did he look about 14 or 15 years old? If so, that is probably the guy who almost beat the 2 time champ in the first round of the Citrus Club last year. Frankie said he is not allowing him in the Club Draw anymore.
