    When to retire if you’re cramping

    Cramps went away during how many remaining games ? I find it impossible to play much less walk when muscles tighten and restrict movement. What are the rules about cramps and timeouts , in the pros you can’t get treatment since it’s a conditioning issue not an injury.

    When to retire if you’re cramping

    So when you feel a cramp coming or when it seizes your muscles in a match what do you do ? Some players play through it but I think it depends on the situation … what’s your experience ?

    Dealing with a net rusher

    I play 4.5 , for the past 4 months... players make few errors and I run a lot more. I've been winning but been playing baseline and defense.

    What's up with Felix?

    I think he can beat any player outside the top 3 … but in the finals he can lose to anyone in the top 100.

    What's up with Felix?

    Gael is arguably the flashiest player who ever lived... Kyrios , Sock, Dustin Brown are similar... no way Felix would play like that... he's more by-the-book. Too early to tell Felix's future but Gael has 10 titles ... he turned pro in 2004 and had a title at least within his 1st year...
