    Anyone here from Austin?

    Wait, is your real name Andy? Or is that a Roddick reference?

    Just curious, does anyone here live in Austin? If so, where do you play (what club) and what level are you?

    Truth: The most difficult high school players

    Somehow, I think the best-in-the-state players are a little harder than a pusher. Pushers are easy. Just quit acting like you are so much better than them, respect their style, and play smart against them. Most people act like they are so good, and that pushers suck, so they try to dominate them...

    Smoke the second serve!

    You would have to be mentally very strong to be able to hit 2 first serves. Anyone can hit a first serve with abandon, because they know they will get another chance, but to hit a hard second serve is much harder, because you would be much more prone to tightening up and missing the serve on...

    Weight and Bench?

    Yeah, great thinking Phil, I started this thread to "brag" about my "macho" 120 bench press. I want the WHOLE WORLD to know that I can bench 120 pounds. I bet you are all impressed, I mean, 120 lbs, that's just unheard of for anyone to be able to bench. And how the hell is knowing Agassi can...

    Building Muscle/ Getting Stronger

    actually, I am supposed to top out at 5'7", so most of my growing is behind me.

    Building Muscle/ Getting Stronger

    As of now, I am 107 pound, 15, and 5'5". I want to get stronger and build some muscle, so I was wondering what supplements are good for building muscle. I work out with weights 3 times a week, play tennis 3, take about 20 grams of protein, plus what I eat daily, and I eat healthy (fruits...

    a month til spring tryouts

    Even if you don't have the skills to make the team, you can make up for it with hustle. Always have a good attitude, stay focused and determined, but DON'T GET MAD. I am sure your coach would much rather have someone with a good work ethic and attitude on the team that a talented brat. Also, pay...

    I have good technique when doing pushups, and you are allowed breaks, I cannot do 100 pushups straight. And I think the efficiency remark meant that you should do them with bad technique, so you don't expend much energy. But I may be wrong.

    How fast can you do 100 push-ups? I just want to get a general idea of where I am compared to other tennis players.

    Check out this guy's Federer-esque forehand!

    That was such a lucky shot. He didn't set his feet or body up at all, he was just incredibly late and got lucky that it stayed in.

    Returning Serve

    The main thing that has really helped me is to take a short backswing, make solid contact, and keep your body going forward through the shot. That way, you get control from the backswing and power from your body. This really puts pressure on the returner and makes it so much easier to break...

    looks can be deceiving

    the same thing happened to me. I was playing doubles and one of my opponents was about 5 in the state at one point. At first he was very lazy, so I was thinking,"Wow, I thought he would be a lot better than this". Then he started to get mad because he partner was sucking, so on one point, my...
