    Hey Fuji, I'm a little late to this party BUT in your video on page one, is that Coach Marvin studying your serve? I did play the box leagues at the Saville about 3-4 yrs ago :)

    Hey TenS_Ace!

    Marvin actually moved to the big Royal this past year! Coach Corey is the one who is filming and working with me. I swear, Saville has some of the best coaching in Canada, it's great here.

    Haha, then you know the struggles of box league! :razz:

    Let me know if you're up for a hit one of these days! I believe I emailed you a while back, correct? I hope you're doing well, and that you will be able to get on court soon!

    Hey all,

    Somehow managed to get another match in before my exam schedule kicked into overdrive!

    I lost 8-3 in a tough match. My serve wasn't doing that well in the start, and it pretty much sealed it. I'm still a bit cautious with my shoulder in match play, as I don't like to heat it up off the start, but it's not really a viable reason to be losing anymore.

    The guy I played was super solid with good wheels. No huge strengths, although he aced me a couple times which is rare. I was able to win a few easy points by drawing him in, since his overheads were well below average for our level. The biggest thing was my match toughness and confidence. I had 4 service games where I was at 40-0, and I only held 2 of them. Really showing my lack of match play with my inconsistent match schedule lately. Still lots to work on, and to help remain injury free.

    This week is my last week of school until September! (Woo!) And it thus marks the start of my "outdoor" season, (once all this darn snow finally melts that is...) and I hope to start doing more fitness, and to get way more match play in. I'm extremely excited to be gearing up for a full season once more, and I hope to be able to update this with more enjoyable posts!

    I do have another match Wednesday night however, and it should be a gooder against a guy I've split matches with in the past. Hopefully I'll be able to serve my way to victory! :razz:

    Cheers,

    -Fuji

    Hey all,

    Played a match this past weekend against another forum member for box league! Definitely a surprise meeting someone else from here in my league!

    It was a super fun match for my end, as I won 6-1 to close out the win, with the final score being 7-4. I was having one of those "on" nights while my opponent was having a touch of an "off" night. I played quite solid without making any outrageous errors. With a little more focus and a little bit of grinding with some junk thrown in, it's amazing what my game can be.

    Luckily, I was returning serves like a beast for the most part. I was just reading them really well and hitting them back with interest. I wish I could play more matches like this one in regards to my preparation on shots and reading of serves.

    Overall a really good match for to boost my confidence going into the outdoor season!
