    Boitan to WFU

    fair enough yeah, i'll be glad when the lost Covid year is a thing of the past, ie not relevant to any active college athletes college athletics allows too much of an age gap to begin with, and Covid year only exacerbated that

    Boitan to WFU

    I would imagine most teams would get better bringing on a 24 year old ATP pro ranked 400s in the world, yes :)

    WFU always has been a leader in creative ways to get adult pros on their amateur college roster Congrats, I guess

    why isn't he going to win Wimbledon anymore, that alone would get him inside the top 20

    Underhand serve but with a twist - bad etiquette?

    seconded, as long as this criteria is fulfilled, serve how you want i once played a guy in a tournament who intentionally rifled a first serve several feet long, then underhanded a second serve while i was turning toward the fence to see where his first serve settled - regardless of being...

    How many of you can control serve direction on 2nd serves?

    nicely said, similar sentiment in fewer words than mine :)

    How many of you can control serve direction on 2nd serves?

    Interesting, kind of feel the opposite, as another 5.0 I'd often rather know where my partner's first serve is going than have a 'set' poach plan, if I had to choose between those two pieces of information depending on the partner, I either: 1) just discuss first serve location (in person, or w...

    Also really like OC’s personality, but no insight into his schedule He reminds me a lot of another of my favorite college tennis players, Duke’s Henrique Cunha, both incredible college players / grinders / fighters who are a little underpowered in the pros - Crawford sticking with it a lot...

    Ben Shelton

    Agassi is high praise, even I might not be there, loved watching his returning / ballstriking But I do find a lot of similarities watching his and Roddick’s matches - though Ben still has a lot to learn about how to play on grass And I don’t know that anyone at all has said he’s going to be...

    Cool, Federer and the On brand got behind him, so I think he’ll survive you not sponsoring him

    Ben Shelton

    First ATP title, T-14 in the world Probably top 5 in the world on an indoor hard court, soon the qualifier ‘indoor’ might not be necessary

    Only Karatsev stands in the way of an ATP 500 title, USO rematch where Karatsev frankly gave up in the final set frustrated by lack of baseline rallies, would expect his coaches to have him more ready to compete this time

    Ben Shelton

    Quite the opposite Isner, Karlovic, Bublik, Kyrgios, etc Guys all made bank on tour for years *because* their game was modeled around a big serve, much easier than differentiating yourself in the pros by your ground game, and easier on the body And Ben has better non-serve tools than those...

    Ben Shelton

    It just means golden is sour that Cal isn’t relevant anymore and Ben is doing well (both in endorsements and on court results) - Shelton not going anywhere Keep in mind golden once started a thread claiming FAA was going to win a zillion grand slams, so, he’s at least as good at evaluating...

    Ben Shelton

    Shelton up to 17 in the world, ahead of Norrie and FAA, after taking down Paul for second straight time Giron next, who beat him in Delray, conditions should be much faster this time around

    Stanford Men

    Obviously they play that style at very different levels Just the way they move around at the baseline reminds me of eachother - they don’t tend to look that ‘hurried’ even though often times they allow their opponents to be the one playing more offense and taking risks Speaks to excellent...

    Stanford Men

    Svadja is becoming a wonderful player to watch and admire - he has so much confidence in his movement / fitness / court positioning that he simply doesn’t seem to care whether he’s hurting his opponent with any individual shots - just seems supremely confident he’s going to hurt them / make them...

    You’re an excellent writer and you taking an obviously insane post (#17) about bull fighters and village elders way too seriously, in response to some kid who posts the same thread every month, isn’t my problem

    those that have been on these college tennis forums for a long time will know, and have to excuse me for, that this is my favorite type of thread to derail with nonsense because they're all absurd to begin with and this particular ding dong starts a lot of them - they deserve no serious...
