Tennis 'fix' during off season?
 
The tennis off season started with the end of the ATP world tour finals. No pro tennis to watch around until January next year.
So suggestions on how to get your tennis fix during this off season. Watch re-runs on youtube? Do some travelling yourself?

go on the court and play....

Don't watch any tennis....Sometimes you get tired watching for 11 months. It would make it more entertaining to wait for Doha and Aussie!

Li Ching Yuen 11-27-2011 02:44 PM

These breaks are actually fueling the fire, so they're good. You should've done your watching since January. Time off is now.

There's some Davis cup i think?

I'd rather have a fresh, short, healthy season with every player at their best than a long, dragged out year where many guys are burned out or otherwise injured. It would not only extend careers, it would make the tennis season more exciting.

I downloaded HD videos of Fed's victories and watch them until AO 2012.

You have just produced one of the best suggestions on this site for this year - I agree 100%

Im sure there will be a bunch of streamed exo's to watch.

But I do look forward to the break, we as fans need to catch a breather too imo.

MichaelNadal 11-27-2011 11:05 PM

Watching Nadal fail has burned me out lol, I welcome the break for once.

I hope that works out for you. Where I live the temperatures will plummet to below freezing for the next 3-4 months

That's what I usually do specially now that we're close to college break.

There is always youtube and message boards in any case.

Off court cross training...I cannot emphasize enough how much stronger my "tennis legs" have become since my work-related bicycling began half a year ago. If it's too cool for tennis, try biking, skating and/or upper-body workouts. Basketball gets the shoulders stronger from shooting, rebounding and the aerobics/flexibility benefits parallel tennis' values in those areas. Happy Holidays, Sid!

Unlucky. If it gets below 10 deg c 2 days a year where I live we all kick up a stink.

Homeboy Hotel 11-28-2011 01:36 PM

Youtube. Repeat.

Rhino 11-28-2011 01:48 PM

Yeah the off season is tough for the die hard fans. At least we still have the Davis Cup final coming up.

Until then, the best you can do is watch videos of your favourite matches of the year I suppose. 2012 will be here before we know it.

IvanAndreevich 11-28-2011 02:38 PM

Indoor tennis membership :D

Haha! Same with me! That's why, as a youth player, I don't get as much of an oppurtunity to grow as a tennis player. Yet, I still have decent progress. Cross your fingers that my town gets more oppurtunites to play tennis indoors, without a huge money predicament! For my town, we have about 4-5 months of available outdoor tennis time, unfortunately.

Epictennis 11-28-2011 02:51 PM

My town has indoor courts, but they cost money of course, and that money adds up. I still have oppurtunites to play tennis of course.
