    The Club draw is the strongest I've ever seen since I've been playing at OTC. Almost no easy matches for anyone except WickedFH.

    I heard he ran out of string and was putting in some old shoe laces into his racket at his neighbor's house.

    ^ at least it wasn't crazy windy today so not as critical having fresh (tighter) strings.

    had to leave before the end but ssgator was up in the 3rd. :)

    ssgator being up 3-1 in the 3rd set has not worked out well for him lately.

    Hey gator I was there hoping to get the spot in the club draw in the morning but so as it turned out somebody did pull out and Frankie offered me to play only at 430pm but unfortunately that's when my new daddy role kicks in and I had to go pick up my little angel from daycare. Damn I wish I had kids earlier :)

    I did however get roped in to playing doubles somehow, my least favorite sport right after horse back riding :)
    Not sure what were their names but it was some young kid who has two speeds 0 and 100 and older gentlemen with very nice touch :)

    I think I saw you there warming up for your match so did not want to bother you otherwise I would say hi :)

    So who's in the finals of open and club tomorrow ?

    Bad_Call,

    I've never seen my wife so civil in a political discussion before. She is hardcore conservative. Probably helps there were no alcoholic drinks at OTC but still. She's a pit bull once she gets to know you. I give it another 2 years and she'll talk off your head for 2 hours about politics. :twisted:

    too bad we had to cut short the discussion. we were just starting to get into it. i'm conservative on a lot of topics and not "married" to any political party. will vote for either side depending on who i think will do the better job. sometimes neither candidate is worthy so just punt. :)

    It's funny, when I have discussions with folks who tend to vote the other way from me I almost always find there is a lot of common ground on a variety of issues.

    Merry Xmas Central Florida and beyond...

    You do realize those serves were tremendously wind aided, I slipped on the line, got clay in my eye and a bird flew over. Otherwise they would not have been aces.

    I thought the train horn, little kids screaming behind you and Dave G. loudly giving pointers on Court 8 was the real reason.

    If you want to try and find a pickup match down at Orlando Tennis Center (OTC), you can hang out there on the weekend mornings starting around 9 or so. You also might be able to find some people to hit with during the work week around lunch time.

    opponents might not like that. :)

    for this player starting back with multi/syngut to be on the safe side. don't think it will be long thereafter before using B5E hybrid.

    There is a little lobber you've played before that called the string "Back Edge" because the topspin always seemed to bring the ball down just in time. He actually complained about the string to a few other people.
