    hahah they must be super fast changers unless they work in those clothes or work at the tennis courts... I dunno if I am good enough to warm up for u and I got church Sunday... leaving for TX on Monday the 21st. my friends played in tourneys but usually only on sat. since it was a ladder. so i warmed up for them. let me know if u wanna hit before i leave though. cuz i am always up for tennis well unless i am playin basketball thats a whole nother story. i guess i'll go hit against the wall good day

    That Oscar is one funny guy.

    Can't wait to go down to Florida in July to hit with them. Is there a secret handshake like the grand pubbas or Masons?

    Trash-talking at its best... And this coming from a guy who thinks Kirilenko beats Daniela in the looks department. Cha rite! <@: )

    I don't really post often here but follow some of the threads...if you guys are ever in the Columbia, MD area I'd be down for playing, theres a bunch of courts here at the various schools in the area that are good to play at...unfortunately I can't really venture outside of the area. I dunno where in Virginia you guys are...DC is maybe half hour, perhaps a little less from Columbia though.

    haha Drakulie, you're a class act! You even posted a picture of the felon so that we can recognize him easily next time! I'm just kidding. Oscar did nothing wrong. :p

    I don't know what those upper courts at Nottoway are called either. Maybe it's called Omni-court, but I don't think so. Anyways, they're hell to play on...at least for me. The surface is really soft, so even if you throw ur racquet, it won't break as easily as in normal hard courts. So, that's the only good thing about it. Good for the joints also.

    Here's why I'd rather play Santoro than play on those upper Nottoway courts:

    -Bounces are really low.
    -Sometimes balls just skid instead of bouncing.
    -There are 'dead spots' where the ball will not bounce or bounce too high or just give plain odd bounces.
    -All the characteristics resemble that of a grass court, and grass is for cows, not for tennis. ;) Kidding.

    No Zapvor, you will not lose when we hit. That's because I specialize in turning players into winners. :)

    I'm in DC near Bethesda MD, but Down Dog’s family lives in Columbia, and she looks for reasons to visit them. So I'd be glad to drive her up, drop her off, and play tennis. Do you live anywhere near Wilde Lake?

    I'm less than 10 minutes from wilde lake...I was actually at the Wilde Lake courts watching the highschool county matches that were going on last week, and the highschool courts are right there too. We should work out some time to play, and maybe convince some others to make the trip :)

    so you played on it before. i think i like it now...since i did pretty well playing on it last night. but its probably a fluke...you rather play Santoro than on those courts??

    Nah...that Santoro thing was a total joke. I would rather die than play Santoro. But, those courts are a pain in the ... to play on. They behave like grass even though it's not grass, and that's not cool!

    Roddick always does well on fast courts, and you have the Roddick forehand, so technically you could kick my butt on those courts.

    Would love that.

    I'll be in Florida in July and plan on meeting up with the South Florida Chapter. See what's really behind those pics. With all that great weather to practice I assume they are very very good. :)

    May I suggest a new thread to vote. Put this nasty topic to rest.

    Kirilenko has the body. However Daniela has the better game at the moment and on camera personality. Tough call. Still go with Maria but I suggest date both of them and let us know about it. :)

    I should be free today (Thursday). I live in Fairfax and I usually go to Nottoway Park to hit with friends. Where are you located? Maybe we can play some today since the weather is supposed to be nice. Let me know what time and location is good for you.

    Any news about a gathering this weekend. I probably won't be able to make because of prior tennis engagements. However, someone should start the conversation. Don't forget to bring a camera.

    So, today I played with ckuo. I have to say.....the guy is Sampras on crack! Nice inside-out forehand, good overall game. Too bad he's leaving for Texas on Monday!

    Oscar,

    I hope your major secret on Tuesday lives up to the hype.

    BTW, can't believe you sold your Kfactors! You mentioned Yonex, but I smell a Babolat in your future. You seem the type.

    I'm guessing the new Aeropro Nadal racquet. The timing just seems right.

    Most of the peeps i know want to move to Florida soley based on the Tennis weather. I really like Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale. I heard Aventura is nice.

    In regards to the south florida chapter. Excited too see what the real thing is all about come July. Make room for a Mid Atlantic chapter visitor (me).

    It's nice, but filled with too many snobs. However, the courts where we have been taking all the photos are a few blacks from Aventura.

    Can't wait. I really liked Boca. My tournament in July is in Fort Lauderdale. I'll probably set up camp there. How far is Aventura from there?

    Love Florida. Spent enough time in Sarasota too love the heat. I could be happy not seeing another snowflake for the rest of my life.
