    Are you happy that you were bumped up?

    Well, over half of the team I captain has been bumped and with ones that have been bumped over the past three years we can get back together. Bring up the ones that did not get bumped and we are one big happy family again.

    USTA ratings cheater in Greensboro, NC?

    Well, I do know that while at VT, this Mr. Payne was awarded the Most Improved player in 1988 and given the Bernstine Award (Team Spirit) in 1988 as well. Maybe he just improved a great deal this year. He was not good enough to play in most of the regular season teams matches and did not make...

    USTA ratings cheater in Greensboro, NC?

    Sorry if I was not clear. He did play during the regular season (3-4 times in doubles). It was the first two days of round robins in the state tournament that he did not play. Did not play until the semi and finials. My point about this was to reply to a statement by the OP I think that they...

    USTA ratings cheater in Greensboro, NC?

    Well, I played on one of the 4.0 teams in Greensboro, NC. We lost to the team in question on the first match of the year with two super tiebreakers and a finial score of 3-2. While we could not get our best line-up out for our first two team matches, that match did ultimately determine the...

    Western (NC) Singles Championship

    that is too bad. At least in Greensboro, there were lots of teams and a good time for all. I love playing singles rather than the mixed doubles of the middle summer months.

    Looking at possible replacements for LM Prestige MP

    Tim: Here is my update. I have ended up saying with the LM Prestige MP. I had tried the flexpoint and did not like it at all. I hit with the MG Prestige briefly, but I really need to put my strings (ALU-60lbs) and grip to really know. I end up having to buy just to find out if I like it. I...

    Getting ready for the Singles League in North Carolina

    We will be starting up the Singles Leagues here in North Carolina soon. I am looking forward to it (except for playing on the 95+ days in July). This year there are going to be two regional playoffs after the local season. One will be the Eastern section of the state and the other the Western...

    Looking for sandbaggers for 4.0 team in Greensboro NC

    Well, Drew Mathews is fast and he does have a weapon. His speed, groundstrokes and consistancy. He lost once in 8.5 combo, lost none in 4.5 league (all singles), no loses in 8.0 mixed, won out at states at 4.5 (singles) and went 15-0 in NTRP 4.5 last year. The only singles loss he had was in...

    Leading up my Nintendo Racquet

    Just an up date. My son has now gone to a players set up as well. He has really picked up his game as well. He is the only one in the house that has broken the Gut/Lux hybrid wrist strap so far.

    His coach is too well known around here and his drop shots would give him away every time.
