    Dealing with blocked holes

    I use a little mini screwdriver (because I had a set in my tool box), creates space and leverage easily then if needed cut the string to a point. edit: I only point out the mini flathead cause people may already have it and not have to buy/order a special tool. ;)

    Some of you guys can string a racket in the time it takes me to get my stringer out of the garage, cut out strings and mount it. :p

    Is Medvedev the new Miloslav Mecir?

    Interesting about Borg: I remember seeing Laver run the 100 in the Superstars competition back in the day, he was surprisingly slow.

    Seniors lounge (over 50) come on in.

    Yeah I was fortunate the temps were in the 60/70's for the match. High heat and/or humidity and I would be posting from the infirmary. Oh yeah I think I only df'd only once or aces I can remember but some service winners...I'll take that stat line.

    Seniors lounge (over 50) come on in.

    Well hit a couple times in the heat (mid to upper 90's) and wuss status was confirmed! Hung in there pretty well but it just wastes me for the rest of the day. I'll stick to mornings where it's 60's/70's. Hitting pretty well, working on getting more spacing on the FH. Less stress on the arm and...

    Taylor Townsend - Wow!!!

    I'll root for any player that uses actual tactics and tries to beat a top player instead of standing at the baseline playing a losing game over and over and over. Tennis is getting so boring, it is refreshing to see something different for a change.
