    Yup, that's how it's done, or supposed to be.
    Both players hitting TO each other, not trying to outright crush the ball, not going for lines, both feeding each other.

    That's a great clip of Milos and Sumit practicing, people should take note.

    Regarding Jibran and David N., Nalby was being a bit of a knob on court and not co-operating much however Jibran wasn't doing himself many favours from missing easy balls, but he was nervous. You could tell how locked up his hands and feet were, always hitting late. It happens. I remember playing Jibran a while back, maybe 10 yrs ago now, good player.

    Most of us know Jibran is an Open player by watching just a few of his shots, shank or not.
    Only the totally ignorant can think this guy is anything below 5.0, on even his bad days.
    However, some of the guys here have never been shellshocked hitting with a player much better than themselves. That syndrome is known as cherry picking.....only playing players much worse than yourself.
