    hi Photoshop - have to look you up for a hit next time in Tampa area. had light hitting with lodeen a couple weeks back when i was testing out the GE inflected arm. it's better but not 100%...hopefully not damaging beyond recovery.

    Bob is in Europe now and Coyfish is in South Florida. We had to revoke their membership cards.

    Hi BC, yes that sounds good - let me know. I live right by public courts!

    Mikler - oh noes! Do we at least get guest access when we visit?
    I meant why are they not on TW anymore... Should at least check The Guy's thread once in a while lol

    gatorbait - sigh, that's pretty far from where I am.

    I think Coyfish transferred and now he's going to med school in the Caribbean.

    Yup. Living in Fort Lauderdale, and playing very little tennis. Perhaps, once or twice a month. Lots of people to play down here, but all the guys that I've met only play at their clubs. I just have to make up my mind about what club to join.

    Tebow,

    I heard you were in Miami.. or Plantation.. or somewhere except in Fort Lauderdale.

    Drakulie says you are a nice guy.

    If you are here, let me know. Message me. There are lots of public courts to hit on. I need to train again.

    Um, he said he lives in Fort Lauderdale. Straight from the source. Tebow loves Har-Tru BTW. :twisted:

    What you mean by train again? Train for real, as in everyday serious training, or just for fun?

    Actually, since I moved I have played only on har-tru. I'm much much more used to it by now :)

    You've hit with Drakulie. That's casual. That's okay if you want to do it. I just need to hit.

    Young Nadal, Old Nadal.. according to TW.. non-steroid nadal. post-steroid nadal...explain?

    Hit me up at mateudn at h0tma1l dot c0m and we can set up some tennis.

    Regarding your question,well, I got big biceps and I can speak Spanish. That's close enough right? :)

    Ps: naturally grown biceps :)

    Do you have hemroids that require you to adjust your underpants before every serve?

    Let me check the schedule and set up a hit. I'll talk to Drakulie. Maybe we can get a mini-meet. Admire your biceps and ask you to stop saying "no" after every sentence. No?

    I would think Bob would be at the "adult beach". That looks like a standard beach where bathing suits are required.

    nice - no adult beaches, though. I went to the Hard Rock Resort at Punta Cana on Dominican Republic. Very large resort with many, many pools. It was all inclusive so everything was paid for - including alcohol and tips. Pretty much drank all day at the beach under the coconut palms. I took my sticks but did not play. They had two hard courts with a funky surface. I was down there for a cousins wedding. All in all fun.

    Not fair that Wicked gets the first match with you after a break when you are rusty.

    But if you try and cut spending, then the government will make the cuts in the most painful ways possible to "prove" we can't cut spending. :mad:

    I see today how Congress is trying to exempt themselves from participating in the Affordable Care Act. Do as I say, not as I do.

    Got 4.5, 40+ league double header Saturday. SSgator80 is abandoning us to play in a 50s tournament (if he wins 3 matches that is).

    We have to play 2 matches each to get everyone qualified, so it works out OK.

    OTC now has a full time manager. He has done a great job so far. Frankie is still giving lesson and stringing but I think he is losing the pro shop as well.


    One handed backhand?

    Hey Wicked,

    SSgator80's tournament fee this weekend is $54.25 plus who knows what he is paying in travel and lodging down to South Florida. Perhaps he could play 1 less tournament a year and spring for a can of "supermarket" tennis balls. :)
