    Nadal confirms tennis evolves, says he is not sure if he can beat himself from years ago

    Have any of you ever kissed a girl? Bunch of 13 year olds playing X-Box. Yes your guy is so much better, we get it. Any one of you would pee yourself for the chance to hit with any of the big three even the other guy. Two guys with differences of opinion or interview techniques. OMG. When...

    Advice from coaches/pros

    I’m not a coach but have started up a lot of things. You can: Luck into it, get a prodigy and succeed. Or Pick your pupils as best as you can and develop them the best they can be. Achieve recognition that way to have access to someone with a higher ceiling. Repeat. Build your resume with...

    What do you think about on those "BAD days" of match play? How do you combat negativity?

    I’m a negative nelly myself. But I usually look for the opportunity to tell myself something to get rid of the tension. I usually try to deflect the anger toward my opponents play. Not to him. Subtle. It can be as simple as getting a drive backhand ROS in play that will get me into the points...

    Where to begin? Need good, honest advice.

    Do what I did. Move to New Orleans and become my hit partner. Mine moved away recently and my progress has slowed. Ex runner, ex bike racer. Moved here from Worcester. 49. We could be twins. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    People who get mad at EVERY shot they miss

    I still get down but it’s more because of the pattern. Like I’m either missing every first serve and double faulting at least a game. Or I overhit everything even when making adjustments to not df or send it long but still do. If Rafa is hitting 55% and that is stellar, I must hit 5% Sent...

    Can't fathom the humiliation of getting knocked out in 1R

    Your average marine has to make more snap decisions, and face more consequences than bankruptcy or hurt feelings all before the age of 21. It’s ok to be hurt, have tantrums and retreat to a private setting getting prepped for whatever tomorrow looks like. I will not take her age as a reason. She...

    Why does watching doubles suck so bad?

    No marquee players because of the purse sizes. Many of the mid rank players sign up for doubles to supplement their 1st round and out paychecks. We also dont have marque players because the lost and next gens haven't forced the top older players, over 30 off the major circuit. I like watching...

    How To Use The Wall As A Practice Partner!!

    How is the op ripping off content. The video is a commercial in and of itself. In truth, I bought a ohbh video course from these guys just because of coach Simon’s wall skills. I wish I could afford a class with him. I like the style. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Exercise and Tennis

    I’ve traveled a lot for my job this year. Lots of all nighters. Lots of booze. My wife got me some sessionswith a personal trainer who is kicking my ass we’ll beyond where I’d like but I’m the one asking. Since I’ve started my fledgling tennis skills have become non existent. I have no feel in...

    Consistently hitting the throat

    Dollars to donuts it’s because they are casting their wrists not because they are too close. Shadow swing 20 times slowly. Shadow 10 times quickly. Drip feed one. Repeat Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
