    Good hitting today guys. It was scorching out there. I even had blister problems on my hand like Nadal and Safin. haha. maybe I was holding the grip too tight :)
    Anyways, we need more people out there and better players (haha :) just kidding patrick & zapvor), we still had a good time though. Like patrick said, we saw the high-tech tennis guy at wakefield, weird eh.
    I am going on a vacation for the rest of the summer practically, so, I hope to hit with you guys when I get back. And have a good summer everyone.
    later

    WHAAA?? I didn't know JCo lived around here...or maybe he's just visiting the area? I do know that some of his footage on his website was filmed during the Legg Mason Classic in DC. Anyways, how do you know what he looks like? Is there a picture of him somewhere?

    actually when we were talking out water breaks the court across from us had like video cameras, hoppers, and training stuff. and there was a guy that he was teaching. they were doing forehand drills and stuff. so we kept on looking and watching what they were doing. then after they were done, jeffery count left and his 'pupil' approached us and said, "i noticed you guys were watching, jeffery is a very good instructor. he has this website called hi-tech tennis. and it is a very good website."

    so i thought that was cool. maybe next time he should come out and give us a couple tips lol or even a discounted group lesson lol :D

    haha yea. i ended up staying until 8:30pm and it was so nice and cool. there were so many people that showed up later, so that was not such good job on my part. but i really wanted to get out and hit.

    Yes, well...I run and play in a team practice starting at 10am, so when I left, the time was still 11am, and I knew I'd already be there. Didn't see anyone I recognized on the way out!

    I think it's pretty cool that JCo is from the DC Metro area. I had no idea.

    Here's a portion of his small biography posted on his hi-tech tennis website:

    Jeff Counts
    I was a ranked junior player in Virgina and have taught tennis for over 15 years in the DC/Metro area. I have used the insights gleaned from years of video analysis to help top ranked juniors and college players perfect their technique. In March 2006, I launched Hi-techtennis to bring this information to anyone interested in learning high level tennis.

    Zapvor, you should totally try to get Jeff to hit with us next time. That'd be uber-cool.

    Btw, I'm sorry I couldn't make it today. My knee was bothering me so much that I had to take cortisone shots. I'm just kidding.

    Oy! Did I ever ask you anything about doubles partners? No, I do not think so. :mad:

    I don't know how we'll get Jeff to hit with us, but you're the problem-solver here! Just kidding...hmm...maybe an e-mail to him?

    Poll I posted about current French Open coverage. I'm happy ESPN and TTC got together, bringing more respect for TTC. I however, have trouble getting past the constant McEnroe/Robinson talking over points and play by play observations. Anyways, enough ranting. You decide.

    Those South Florida guys got on the Miami Open center court over the weekend.

    Should I give my contact at Flushing Meadows a call?

    It may be logistically more straightforward if we first play on the Legg Mason Open Center Court which has hosted Andre Agassi, Marat Safin et al, right here in Washington DC. :)

    I have some ideas! ShCmad and Zapvor, set up a chat room or something so we can discuss. Not on the boards obviously.

    zapvor, I enjoyed hitting with you guys while it lasted. But, I'm quitting tennis forever. I'm only 20 but my tennis is going downhill. I think my tennis has become a joke.





    I'm just joking with ya... I vote for Saturday. Anytime is fine as long as it's not scorching-hot.

    Btw, during our next meet, we have to discuss on our upcoming meet that's gonna take place at the Fitzgerald Tennis Center in DC and the USTA National Tennis Center in NY. We can't let those Florida guys surpass us in terms of coolness factor.

    I thought you were serious, jerk! ;)

    Sat is really bad for me, but maybe Sun and if that's bad for everyone else, next week for me definitely.

    HA! Oh good ol' Starlite... so innocent and naive... :p Don't ever take me too seriously.

    Maybe you could sway the outcome of the meeting day if you bring home-made cookies.
