    Has anyone ever played tennis in Buenos Aires/

    Hey that's where I'm going!!! Is it a good standard there? I'm a full time junior here in England, so I am pretty good without being arrogant. I am there from January to March/April I hope.

    Advice on 4 and 6 yr old...

    Dude don't you get it? The best kids at 14 are very rarely the best pros or 18's. They either burn out or they got there with poor skills like hacking, or they were just bigger and stronger at an earlier age. The best kids show their stuff at 18's.

    There is a good chance that I will be going to Buenos Aires for 3-6 months in January. Has anyone been before? Is it a place? Did you play tennis there? I speak spanish due to living in Spain for 2 1/2 years, so that helps alot. It will be a real eye opener for me seeing as I am 17, but I have...

    Hey guys long time no posting. I have been AWOL for a while on this forum. As some may no, I got a terrible rotator cuff injury which stopped me picking up a racket for 7 months. I have started training hard again, and unfortunately I will be back playing the amazingly fun indoor winter...

    Don't force your kids to play tennis, they will resent or fear you when they are older. I carried on with full time tennis because my parents and coach supported but never forced me to play tennis. I was given the opportunity, but it was entirely my choice. That is what you must do. Give them...

    British Juniors?

    That's crazy. I was a 6.1 last may and went up 3 ratings. I went up one to a 5.2 in june and then double jumped in september. I ahd to ring the LTA like 20 times though and after 2 weeks they actually put me up. Idiots.

    Reason You Watch Tennis Or Are A Fan Of A Player

    I watch it because I like seeing men with nice legs run around alot. I also like watching it because of the eastern european (wo)men running around in short skirts look silly, and aren't very good.

    British Juniors?

    Yeah I can't stand the new rating system. Especially for people with quite high ratings. It means that if I lose to one or two 5.2 or 5.1 rated players then I have to win like 6 matches against 4.2 or higher just to go up one rating, whereas before I had alot more time. Seriously dumb.

    Israeli, Shahar Peer barrred from Dubai ... Tourney Fined by WTA

    Yeah I agree. Even though it's wrong to deny someone entry to a country due to religion, if the rules have been put in place by the goverment then there is no way a tennis tournament will change those rules. A shame but hey.

    The LTA have gotten rid of the appeal system now.
