    The obvious reason junk ballers are so much better at match play than you are

    There's this guy at our site that your 3 groups don't include him. He'd fit into the 4th group: only happy and pick certain people to play matches with. He was shady AF, calling line balls for both sides to get his way. Naturally he ran into issue with me and been avoiding playing with me since...

    Do you know anyone who "beat" tennis and walked away ?

    the bit about "shove people into" is unnecessary because you are doing the same thing, ie shove people out of the boxes when you are arguing against me. Unless you're strictly speaking for yourself and your friends who are super minority, exceptions, which is moot to my argument which is about...

    Do you know anyone who "beat" tennis and walked away ?

    Let's use an example of something else to show my point, and it's very much the same. I bet everyone knows how to get fit, healthy and strong. Eat the correct the amount of meat, veggies for your body and exercise regularly. That's really a no brainer. Nobody cant say they don't know that...

    Not in the context of this thread though. :):cool:

    Do you know anyone who "beat" tennis and walked away ?

    No one is saying information itself is useless. But in the context of dealing with a challenge, finding the info to help you doesn't rate very high because it's essentially non issue. Watch MEP, we all know how MEP plays and beats his opponent. It's not any secrets. Most experienced people can...

    Pushers are you having fun?

    That's an incomplete concept. Tennis is only fun when you can successfully figure out how to win. As evidence, it wasn't fun for the OP since he couldn't get out of his problem, and lost. He's not special. He's like million others out there. Tennis is generally fun for me, too, as I tend to...

    Do you know anyone who "beat" tennis and walked away ?

    It takes no time for anyone with some brain cells to know someone's style. Knowing opponent's style is practically useless. It's doing, execution that's important. I can straight out tell you that I would beat you by hitting many good ground strokes, making you run and eventually you fail...

    Do you know anyone who "beat" tennis and walked away ?

    I don't know about ceiling but I do know a few who hit their flooring and then gone forever! I guess that's the only thing that makes sense for everyone eventually. I pretty much realized very early that the levels in recreational tennis are just artificial craps. It's pretty much pointless...

    Forehand MPH Question. Physics Experts Only!

    Me too, ever since the 12th ball hit my head the other day. Life is short. You gotta take everything with utmost seriousness. :cool:

    Forehand MPH Question. Physics Experts Only!

    It is sooo easy, bruh. I already denoted the formula clearly with P being Power; F being Fence, whichever way you want to calculate. It's clear as daylight.

    Forehand MPH Question. Physics Experts Only!

    Precise calculation here: To simplify, it is.. (please excuse my using of scrap paper. I did it in my spare time while solving a quantum mechanic equation for time travel in hypothetical 4th dimension with consideration for Dark Matters)

    Wanting to quit playing tennis

    For sure! I feel majority of rec players out there are just lazy. Like everything else, if you want success, you have to put in effort. And it takes a lot of effort to be consistently better than most people. I'm not talking about beating a few and losing to a few, ie average, which in your...

    Knowledge doesn't change habits.

    Let me ask you... How did a habit become a habit in the first place? By repeating something over and over, right? So, by same token, can you repeat a correct action over and over until it becomes a habit? (I have to go lie down. This thought gave me such a headache! o_O )

    Ok guys, I’m done here

    At the courts, too. They say they wanna exercise. I invite them for singles, no one responds. I offer to buy them lunch if they beat me, no response. We'll continue to play 3v3 and lazy doubles. :)

    Explain MEP to me please

    I heard that he was cleaning a chemistry lab in an Intermediate school and got bitten by a spider. He got sick the next 2 weeks which everyone thought was covid. Eventually he recovered. He also plays tennis since forever. No idea if the spider bite and the way he plays are related.

    Ok guys, I’m done here

    @Curious has a nice serve tho. He was serving up 1 or 2 video clips a week to keep things going. But I think he underestimated the junk talkers, poast bashers, argument pushers of this place and got destroyed.

    Topspin One handed backhand forward swing

    It's the same opponent in many of your videos. How are you doing against him, h2h? I also have one singles opponent and we are tie this year.

    Ok guys, I’m done here

    Between TT Board and My 600-lb Life I have a hard time in deciding which to let go. Heck, I'll do both. So addictive.

    Sounds good. I'm looking forward to seeing your videos and posts under this thread for the next 6 months. :)

    Adding pace to my forehand

    I added weight tape to my racket. Instant extra pace to everything, including drop shot. I'm happy.

    eyes on the ball at contact

    @SystemicAnomaly What's the DL? Although it's rare to see people fall and hit their head -- in the case I saw, ambulance had to be called -- people fall, trip when moving back is quite common. One of my tennis acquaintances fell because he was dragging his feet and there was too much...

    eyes on the ball at contact

    At a site of 50+ players you bound to find something,... anything u have seen in tennis, more or less. :) And even more. I haven't seen a pro fall back n crack his head, or anyone get a stroke in the middle of playing but i have seen a few at my site. Lol

    eyes on the ball at contact

    Tennis wise, It's probably more than a feeling, ie it's likely technical, skill based. This tracking and hitting well. Aside from my example of hit bounce hit, another evidence is the skillful hitting on the rise or hitting the ball at one's ankle. There's this guy in our group who does this...

    eyes on the ball at contact

    @SystemicAnomaly @Fintft I postulate that it's more than just seeing the ball and keeping the head steady. There's a sort of tracking where the mind/eyes track, calculate the ball's movement. I described that (the feeling) as being in synch. Once in synch the sight of the ball and our movement...

    eyes on the ball at contact

    You don't think so about what I suggest but you don't shift your sight? Well, we can try an experiment. Next time we're out at the court, try: see the ball coming to you, but right at the point in time where you suppose to contact it, subtly shift your sight to somewhere else (may the left...

    eyes on the ball at contact

    It doesn't look like Fed was trying to SEE the ball in an extraordinary way. But it does seem like he sets his stare in place a little longer (to make sure he actually sees the ball?) We probably cannot make good contact if we shift our sight somewhere else at the moment of contact even if our...

    Am I the only one who still doesn't see the point of mini-tennis

    Deal with it. That's the level of reading comprehension around here, especially this guy zaph. LOL :) I love mini tennis. It can get into like a trance for me. Mini tennis is also good for loosening you up.

    What would my chances be against Federer

    Uh NO. As a middling 4.0 who's fond of experimenting, ie I had practiced some, I had used my offhand to challenge 65+ old men who hit better than complete newbies. They didn't stand a chance. It was just being fast and handy with tapping the ball back. Not really any tennis skill but just...

    The Art and Science of Ball Watching

    Not sure what the Fed thing you're refering to, but an ez answer is no one else can do what Fed does bc they're not as talented? Hence, Fed is the goat :giggle: If a lot of guys can do what Fed or Ronaldo does, then we would have a bunch of Feds and Ronaldo, no? And Fed is no longer the Fed...
