That was never my thing but it seemed to work out quite well for him, he had and still has a NASTY kick serve.
Either medium, I would be happy as a clam by the end of the set no matter if i had won or lost, and by the end of the match I was generally entrenched in my happy place without a care in the world, and had a nice winner/unforced error ratio to boot!
Wow! Can't say I've ever seen those types of things hapening on a tennis court. You play on the roof of studio 69?
