    I can't believe your opponent in white ducked away from your return around the 0:22 mark. Yes, you hit a solid return. But, the ball was there for a forehand CC volley. Just stick the racket out.

    Haven't had time to watch all the way through yet. Just noticed the opponent wussing out on that one.

    Nice video - I play over at CSUN, but probably won't be very engaged with the team this semester. We may have crossed paths in the last couple tournaments though (although I'm sure I did not play against you).

    Hmm I don't ever recall playing csun but hopefully in the few tourneys you do participate this year I'll see you. I'm a board member of UCI's club so I'm def gonna be at those tourneys

    @topspin: I know its a bummer :(. Looking at your vids etc, I really looked forward to playing against you

    I don't think we played you guys, the draws just never ended up that way. If I go to any of the tournaments I'll let you know, but most likely I won't be very active until Spring.

    Personal preference, I personally don't find MOST tennis girls attractive.

    Matt, what do you think about Alize Lim, Maria Kirilenko (too old?), or Ana Ivanovic?

    Not a fan of Alize Lim. I do think Kirilenko and Ivanovic are hot though. I'm talking about normal tennis girls

    Hmmm I think the tennis girls that look the best are the ones that are really good bit they're not super competitive and focus on winning where they begin to have a mans frame haha. My gf never cared if she won/lost and never trained like super hard but she was still a 5 star recruit at one point.

    In this vid, is that you in the dark blue/black/whatever shorts? (I think you're in the red shorts, but not totally sure).

    Guy in dark blue/black shorts frequently opens his shoulders too much/over-rotates shoulders on his FH. If that's you, it's the number one issue I'd try to work on; if it's not you, then you might want to give him that advice, because it's a pretty good forehand anyway, but could be much better IMO without changing anything other than that. Actually I'd say this is probably an issue with his serve too.

    Red shorts seems like a pretty good athlete, good to see you/him working on all-court play.

    Thanks for posting the vids!
