    Ever got double bageled?

    Having never played you, I can tell when I'm getting a charity game, and I don't like it. I even had a guy report the score as 6-1, 6-1 after double-bageling me, which REALLY set me off. Just play me straight-up, and if you smoke me, you smoke me. I won't like it, but I'll live.

    Hows the quarantine treating you

    Haven't played since last June, but I've been working on my fitness since then and dropped 20 pounds. I plan on getting back on the court in April at least another 10 pounds lighter.

    More satisfied

    I realize I may come across as a jerk, but I would rather do the former, because that means I kept my focus the whole match and didn't stoop to my opponent's level, which is one of my biggest problems on the court. Against a tough opponent, I'm in there mentally from start to finish, but I can't...

    Would you do this?

    I wouldn't have the nerve to do it, but if someone had the nerve to do it against me and the expertise to pull it off, more power to him.

    Have you ever played on grass?

    Obligatory "No, but if any of you have ever seen me play, you'd swear I was drunk" comment. ;)

    Don't want unsolicited advice from a doubles partner? Don't play doubles.

    What's to old to play tennis?

    That's not the least bit funny. I'm 55 now, and I plan on playing as long as my body allows me to.

    Classy Apology from Novak - USO 2020

    He turned tail and ran like a coward. You make a mess, you clean it up where you made it.

    The same parties he apologized to in his Instagram post.

    Classy Apology from Novak - USO 2020

    Punk move doing it on social media. He should have apologized to all parties in person, like a 17-year-old Denis Shapovalov did three years ago. Novak still has some growing up to do.

    A player born in the 90s guaranteed to win a Slam for the first time ever

    It would be poetic justice if Auger-Alliasime were to win.

    We Do Not Blame The Djoker For Not Attending Post Match Interview.

    Why are you referring to yourself as "we?" instead of owning up to what he did, Novak turned tail and ran. That was a punk move, pure and simple.

    Djokovic disqualified from the US Open for hitting a lines woman in the throat.

    It's called "facing responsibility for your actions." It's what adults do.

    Djokovic disqualified from the US Open for hitting a lines woman in the throat.

    In other words, he literally flew halfway around the world for nothing.

    Djokovic disqualified from the US Open for hitting a lines woman in the throat.

    To make matters worse, Novak left the grounds without talking to reporters, as if HE were the victim. Straight punk move.

    Djokovic disqualified from the US Open for hitting a lines woman in the throat.

    So now it’s her fault? “Novak May hit a ball at me. I better be ready to duck.” You’re a moron.

    Djokovic disqualified from the US Open for hitting a lines woman in the throat.

    Doesn’t matter. He hit the line judge hard enough for her to be taken off the court. She had nothing to do with Novak getting his serve broken. Actions have consequences.

    Djokovic disqualified from the US Open for hitting a lines woman in the throat.

    Sad for him? The lineswoman was the one who was helped off the court because Novak couldn’t control his anger.

    Djokovic disqualified from the US Open for hitting a lines woman in the throat.

    That’s the right call. No player is above the rules.

    Med is the ONLY guy who can beat Djoker

    Novak should be defaulted.

    The shot you work on the most and still can't get right

    I was demoted to 3.5 three years ago and haven't gotten back up to 4.0 yet, so.....all of them.

    What do you say during the handshake after beating someone badly?

    When I'm on the losing end of a 12-0 or 12-1 beatdown, I say, "Thanks for the lesson." When I'm on the winning end.....I'll let you know what I say when it happens. ;)

    Can Monfils save Tennis ?

    Tennis doesn't need saving by anyone from anyone or anything.

    Could Federer still play professional tennis at 45-50 years of age?

    Could he? Sure. Would he want to? Would he be successful? No.

    Any bay area tennis players here? Want to get a group started.

    I live in Berkeley, and I'm a legit 3.5, for what it's worth.

    Serena Williams

    First of all, she isn't 37 yet. Secondly, she won Australia last year and reached the finals of Wimbledon and the US Open this year, so her "decline" is still better than most players' peak.
