    Your Bag

    Some may argue that this is not the appropriate category. But I wanted this audience's take. I've seen some dudes carry their stick & a bottle of water only; while I've seen some dudes with the 12 racquet backpack. What do you take to your matches? My primary weapon is a Head, but my bag is a...

    Best Acoustic Renditions

    So I love music. But I really love the artists that can play their own music (and write their own stuff). So what is best acoustic tunes? I'll throw out two: Colin Hay of Men Down Under: & Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, and of course Nirvana):

    College B-Ball 2015-2016: Houston

    I felt it was time to address College Basketball. So far, KY, UNC, Mich. State, & Kansas look to be the cream. I like Maryland's talent, but don't play as cohesive team at times, & could work on their D. Any early predictions? Kentucky?

    (15)Anderson vs. (20) Thiem 2015 USO

    Anybody looking forward to this match? I see Anderson winning in 4, but am rooting for Thiem. Thiem will really gain some confidence (for his overall career) if he takes this. Plus he would, most likely, get to face Murray (another big opportunity for confidence). They played two tight matches...

    Offended by a WIn

    We won a doubles match the other night that was interesting. After losing the first set 4-6, we came back to win the second 6-4, and the tiebreak (7). It was a tough and great match. Although the losing team graciously shook our hand, they were throwing bottles and cursing and I overheard them...

    First Tennis Lesson

    Well, I have my first lesson this weekend. Curious about anything I should focus on or mention to the pro. I'm a low 3.5, been playing ~ 2 years. Hit a flat shot, no topspin. First serve, quickness, & stamina are strong points in game. Weak second serve, not good with low shots or footwork...

    First Tennis Lessons

    Been playing nearly 2 years now. 1 year league play; bumped from 3.0 to 3.5 this year. Fairly athletic. Flat, no spin hitter. But I've hit a lull of progress with my current strokes. I'm gonna start my first private lessons soon. (Now I know it varies with the individual & the amount of...

    Went to the circus (Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey) for the first time last night. And loved it. Only $10 tickets, via Brownie discount (two daughters involved). Acrobatics were sensational. Curious what others thought about the circus, and what are some other good circuses that I may attend?

    Private Lessons vs. Clinics

    I've been playing 2 years now & I'm looking to improve my game, ready for some professional assistance. Which would benefit me more for the value? Private lessons at ~$60/hr or like a twenty session clinic at ~$260. If each clinic session is one hour, it would equal like $13/hr, but would have...
