    Patrick Rafter: When Nice Guys Finish First

    The thing about Rafter that is different than all other guys who reached #1 is that nobody expected him to get there. He was on his way to being a journeyman player, in his mid 20’s, ranked in around 20th in the world, when he suddenly elevated his game to a new level and became a...

    Stop talking nonsense about being relaxed when hitting the ball !!!

    I’m playing today in the quarterfinal of my singles league playoffs. My opponent today has a huge NextGen style modern forehand - the heaviest in our league. I hope that my edge in precision will enable me to advance.

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    Just Up The Road To Tampa For Super Bowl LV, February 7, 2021; Who Rocks The Buccaneer Boat?

    The Bucs finished 2019 as the 3rd best defense in the NFL behind only Ravens and Steelers (and #1 in the NFC, ahead of the Niners) based on weighted DVOA. TB12 chose his team carefully.

    "Air Jaws": Record-Breaking Shark Breach

    Also reminds me of a road-trip I took in southern Africa back in the late ‘90s. Most animals steer clear of your car, and ignore you when your window is rolled down. But there was one exception (not counting pissed-off oliphants). These curious tall 2-legged critters would stick their hungry...

    Hitting 2 handed Backhand video

    Diary of a Racketaholic

    I am in the process of carefully matching several of my other 18x20 dense pattern sticks to the length and specs of my UT. My Solinco Pro 7, my Angell TC95, and my BLX 6.1 95. I’ll be able to compare them better once they are are strung with spinny kevlar/poly how I like it.
