weigh in, people. i'm taking my captaining responsibilities very srsly, obviously. tfm, enjoy playing on your two moco teams, you mofo.
1. I'd vote for massage after the match. Since it's a seated massage, you are not really warming up your body and getting ready for the match. I'd suggest a dynamic warm up as described here in the USTA website: http://www.playerdevelopment.usta.co...177&itype=7418
Some types of sport massage may be beneficial pre-match if it's focused on specific things for tennis, but I'm thinking seated massage may not havethis goal (IMHO).
2. I'd go for the coffee, assuming it's post match.
