    I'm ok, jolly. I play table tennis now. It's easier on the joints.

    Wimbledon is in the bag. Come back to this post in a few months.

    A funny, but meaningless Federer stat

    A different slam, but you left out Cilic. Federer has beaten him 3 straight

    Nadal can still easily surpass/match Federer's Slam count

    Nadal isn't surpassing Federer. At least he passed Sampras for 2nd place, that's a very good consolation prize.

    I stopped betting when I became a cop

    Predicted it

    I called it years ago when Federer was on the decline, Federer would win more than 20 majors. Nobody can say Rickson doesn't stay loyal.

    Straight to bent, bent to bent and bent to straight?

    The only time I ever go bent to straight is on an overhead.

    Isn't this about forehands?

    Does anybody at TalkTennis "NOT" serve 120MPH?

    The late 90s? That's when some of my girlfriends were born.

    TE won't go away

    TE won't go away

    Try switching hands for a while. It'll be a great opportunity for you to develop your weak hand. You could be the next Rafael Nadal!

    Would you not work ??

    Thanks, mikeler. Unfortunately, not everyone feels that way especially these days.

    TE won't go away

    Plenty of rest will do it. It's like the old doctor joke. It hurts when I do this. So don't do that.

    TE won't go away

    A good massage might help.

    Would you not work ??

    If you're making less than a thousand a month, something is very wrong. You'd have to be a high school student or a factory worker in a third world country. An adult who pays rent, an electricity bill, and a cell phone bill can not survive on 250 bucks a week.

    Would you not work ??

    My rent alone is over a thousand so there's no way that deal could work well for me. I'd consider it if it were 3000 a month.

    Show me the money.

    Would you not work ??

    Well, I left to become a cop. 3 and a half years on the job now and I haven't played tennis in all that time.

    Rafael Nadal's seeding could hurt Novak Djokovic, says Roger Federer

    It means Roger has taken a lot of beatings from Nadal at Roland Garros.

    Would you not work ??

    I make about quadruple that and besides that, I'd hate to give up my gun.

    Where can I buy a penhold grip? Is it more expensive than the western grip?

    The biggest difference between tt and tennis is that most people prefer the backhand in tt. It took me a while to use the fh a lot more, but just like in tennis, I'm glad to say that I now run around the backhand to hit a forehand every opportunity I get.

    Anything actually work for low back pain?

    With my long torso and short legs, I'd rather not stretch my spine any further.

    175 vs 155? Do you really need an answer on why 135 would feel lighter?

    How can I play tennis, lose fat, and build muscle all at the same time?

    I said caloric deficit, not surplus. If you went up in weight, you were in a surplus. I'm not talking about gaining muscle while losing 1 or 2 lbs.. I mean I've never seen anyone gain muscle while losing 20 or more lbs. except for steroid abusers and even then, muscle gain is difficult.

    Cal, stay away from those young girls. Your back will get better in no time.

    How can I play tennis, lose fat, and build muscle all at the same time?

    The only pro wrestler who seemingly gained muscle while losing weight, was Rocky Johnson, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's dad. Rocky Johnson dropped 20 lbs. while showing enormous muscles, but then again, steroids can do that kind of thing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_Johnson

    How can I play tennis, lose fat, and build muscle all at the same time?

    Before I became a cop, I was a personal trainer. During my time as a trainer, I've never seen anyone gain any muscle mass while dieting although I've seen what appeared to be muscle gains, but it was just the muscles showing more from lowered bodyfat. How do I know this? I measured their bf and...
