Still looking for ambitious tennis partners!!
 
Two year ago i was looking for serious tennis players to train together for a year. This time im looking for 2-3 guys, who are at least 4.5, preferably 5.0-5.5, who would be interested in training together for 2-3 month in a nice warm country where we can train 3-4 hrs a day.

The idea is to also hire a local future (quali) level play to train with our group for some 10 hours a week (this should cost some 800-1000usd/month divided by the number of players in the group).

We would rent a nice apartment with a room for each person and a nice living space. This should cost 600-1000 usd/month depending on country and whether it is in the capital or in a provincial town.

Im 5.0, 43 yrs old, i love tennis and football (soccer!), love languages and culture, partying and dancing (woud love to learn salsa), good food/wine/coffee and cake! I love good debates about everything, having fun and cracking jokes! ;)

One of the the players could already be living in the country where we would do this. Anybody interested?

That's impressive.

You seem VERY interested in tennis / sport for a 43 year old. Do you mind (briefly) sharing your history? And how you train today. Might give me some ideas for myself. I'm just a few years younger than you.

Hmm... based on his past posts I'm guessing that peoplespeace's main training tip is "be wealthy enough to not have to worry about working for a living."

But I could be wrong! Either way I enjoy hearing about his globe-trotting tennis bum lifestyle...

His 5.0 is self rated. He posted 2 years ago at the age of 41 stating that he was 5.0/5.5 after basically playing tennis for 2 years and self taught due to bad instructors or academies that didn't teach him anything. He put a video up in his orginal thread. You can judge for yourself what level you think he is at.
