    playing 3 matches for club finals...

    Dont chat in between points. Stay up. Roger is 138 years old and can still play a pro level 5 setter. You can play your but stay moving. Once that guy with the pot belly starts on the wife and kids. You're done. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk

    How long do you hold the Racket with your off hand?

    The Garlinton video makes sense to me. I have an incomplete prep on the forehand and now that I’ve seen the turn then the prep on the video I see my hitch in his demo. So I hold the racquet quite long with two hands ideal per the video. But the length is poor. So now that I’ve tried some...

    Match tightness

    Thanks but the question isn’t about getting tough but when the nerves are on, is there a difference physically. Or is it only seen via ball flight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Match tightness

    Has anyone looked at themselves on video when they were taping a practice be a match? It would be interesting to see say a side by side of the free and easy world class forehands we have in practice or lessons against the tight stroke we feel in matches. It would be interesting to see outside...

    Why do teaching pros insist on teaching spin serve esp to women?

    You’re being overly sensitive. I am 6’5” and my pro is mandating spin serves. I attended an OTI academy and they focused on spin serves. If you have a good hard, flat 80+ mph first serve, that’s great. You’re also above the 90th percentile for all rec tennis. Some 5’2” people (though likely...

    Obsessing over technique and never playing matches

    Come to Nola. I play with an older crowd and they still run and play singles. Competitive but fun. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Rod Laver is everywhere. Was he this visible in tennis in the 70s, 80s, and 90s?

    And obviously her point of view lost. So she is less influential on current events that one would seem to argue. That doesn’t diminish her tennis skills or should enable political discussions on a tennis board. There are plenty of left and right wing forums for your communal hatred to be...

    Good/bad feeling

    Good: knowing that No matter how hard you hit your first serve, it’s 10 feet in. Bad: knowing No matter how you dink your second, it’s 10 feet long Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Whats wrong with young generation?

    Bad tactics. Older players can S&V. Older players can serve somewhat, older players can baseline. Younger players have A weapon. When that’s countered they just do it harder. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Did you ever get bored with tennis?

    I love the sport but it’s tiring losing all of the time playing people that I want to play. I could play down but that comes with its own price. But I like the fitness without the hours in the saddle or on the road. And for the most part the people. I’ve had good experiences mostly meeting...

    Is Camila Giorgi a future multi slam champion?

    She pushed serena at Wimbledon and looked like she could be then serena went to plan b and camilla choked. Shame. would be good to more of her on tv but the wta favors the pizza eating contest winners Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk

    Hanging with better players

    Watching a 10fitmen video. Exhibition match between the guy Milan and a top150 atp player. He hangs with the pro pretty well. At what point or level does the curve level out to where one can hang hit compete with better players. There seems to be a wider “basics” gulf between 3.5 and 4.0 than...
