Ill be there around 4
See you guys at 5 then.
Bob and DGoran are M.I.A.??
Oh hahaha there you are!!
Then I might be early than 5 over there.
I am MIA because my lovely wife went to Europe
C U L8R
Bob, does that mean you are free to play tennis everyday?
In 2004, my wife went to England for 2 weeks. I played 13 out of 14 days!
I will give my best to implement that brilliant strategy
Hey guys I forgot to share one very nice information with all of you. I did not believe my ears but it is true - demoing racquets in Tennis Pla3a is FREE! Up to 3 days and max 2 racquets at the same time. After 3 days it is $3 per day and per racquet....
Thanks for the info Bob!!
It just good to know even though we have good internet retailers here,but to have a shop like that in town its a plus!!
Definitely worth a visit one of these days! Bob thanks again for the string, is your pp the same as your email?
thanks for the hits and no rain. think the BG string can handle Bob's big serves...if i can get a racquet on the ball.
You are very welcome I just sent you an email
Hahaha Btw, I hope that Jr. will join us next time
Bob, once again thank you for the Demo's info. Just passed today with my wife and talk to the manager (very nice guy down to earth). Bough more wilson pro grips and grab 2 demos Yonex (brand new and freshly strong), the RDIS 300 & 200 so she can try even she already like my racquets.
Temp in the car at 4pm 104 degrees....unbearable the weather that we have!!
This heat is insane. I wonder when the last time we got below 80 degrees was! Played today and won it in a super tiebreak. It's pretty obvious that I need to start going for returns more to improve my game. If I commit to doing it then I may have to sacrifice a few victories now to get more later. Once I get comfortable chipping returns back I get stuck in that mode and can't seem to get out of it.
had to take lots of breaks today...still fun tho since i didn't faint from the heat. helps when i limit the beer intake the night before.
Amen brother. It makes all the difference in the world for my weekends!
Hey Mr. B, we are still waiting for those free samples!!
have to plan that one. not allowed in the park.
Back in town. Had a great time in the Keys. I havent played in 2 weeks. I will try to hit today.
Back to back 2 hour sessions the past 2 days. I may go for 3 tonight. Really focused on footwork.
Supposed to play tonight if the rain holds off. NWS says only a 20% chance of rain but there is a huge cluster of showers out in the Atlantic that appear to be moving this way, so I'm not as optimistic as the forecast.
Yes..let's hope for good luck. I want to hit again myself.
Weather looking good so far. Looks like the rain chances are going to pick up after today.
Dont be so negative Mike , just like Bela Karolyi said "SHAKE IT OFF"!!
I'm very negative these days. Another straight set loss where I had about 10 break points including one game at 0-40 and I could not convert any of them.
My serve is getting a little better. Had a few double faults during matchplay but I still won. The serve frustrated my opponent and we went back to rallying after a while. My biggest problem can be trying to slice and spin the ball too much and I end up framing the ball on the inside. I fixed that by looking at the ball and keeping my toss hand up longer. there are a few things I need to get more consistent but I am serving better and don't really take much off my second serve anymore.
The match play was a lot easier on my body. The rallying hurts. I love it, but a good mix of both is perfect.
please please no rain tomorrow Friday tennis is pretty much the only thing I look forward to these days :-| It's sad.
Look to the west today, that is where they'll be coming from.
Will be up at OTC at 4:30 today.
Did you get my e-mail a few days ago?
You should come out to blanchard at 4:30.
Im right with you G. Friday tennis is the highlight of my week. Will be there weather permitting.
This is unbelievable 4 days not a single drop and now it is getting darker. I mean, why on Fridays?
Blanchard is on the other side of the world from me. But I do want to come over and hit sometime. I will see how it goes next week.
That and Friday night is date night with the wife.
I be there around 4...see you guys there.
can't make it today...
ssgator - need to meet u at OTC...whilst you're out of practice. :razz: btw - how was the bug hunting?
Haha, I know, right?
You know... I was watching Back to the Future 2 the other day... and it really made me think about certain expectations I had as a kid about the future.
I thought we were going to see flying cars, robots, and all the cool stuff by the year 2015. I thought we were going to be able to control the weather in the future!
In Back to the Future 2 they could predict exactly when it would rain!!
What happened to the future I was promised?!?!:cry:
*cries in the corner*
ps. I want my hoverboard.
pps. I'll be at blanchard by 4:20
Looks like you guys may have a window before the west coast sea breeze storms move through:
Cool ill b there at 4:30 if it looks clear
Nalbandian is the true GOAT.
The best Two hander in the biz!
ssgator - thanks for the offer. tentatively scheduled to hit Sunday but if that changes, what time are you at OTC?
Hey m8s, anyone wanna hit tomorrow (Sunday)?
I am super-available
Hola Bob, I have a game tomorrow morning,but if everything goes well for the rest of the day I think I be able sometime after 5:30.
I will text you if anything change.
ssgator and I were hitting on courts next to each other when the rains came. It was a real bummer because I was playing great until the sprinkles started. After that, my racket handle was already so sweaty I was worried about going for my shots and launching a PST!
OK, see you later (weather permitting) ...
I think you are jinx by the weather Bob
Will see how it goes late afternoon.
Baghdatis vs Nalbandian today...make your bets guys.
UA - nice to see that match up.
