    Alta- Why do you continue to address sore losers(Leafmore) concerns

    So we are out playing what I thought was a pretty good team top to bottom especially the women...They came to our place for the first time(which is odd in and of itself but that's another story for a different rant). The problem I have is Alta continues to actually call captains and address...

    Serena/Sloane Different Roads To Success

    I have seen many postings of people basically saying Sloane is some kind of fresh air. Fresh air from what? Serena carrying the American flag for years and winning majors when no other American woman could? Here is the deal. they have basically had different roads to travel. While Serena wasn't...

    Isner the nerve to talk about Fed missing a tourney

    How does this guy fix his mouth to say anything about anybody missing or skipping a tourney when he skips whole games. He plays as many tiebreaks as he does for a reason. He plays only one side of the ball which is when he is serving and takes off most games when he is returning. It's a reason...

    Bringing down the Overheads in A1 Alta

    So the wife and I played in Atlanta this weekend and basically had to put away I don't know how many overheads. The problem was in the first I'd say 3 games of the match...We put away about 6 overheads(non missed) at least 4 of them hit the guy at the net....the last being the one I hit which...

    Southern Section Combo Tennessee 7.5 and 8.5 champions

    I haven't been on here in a while but my 7.5 team pulled out a close one against LA in the finals. I think they said they lost in the finals last year so this was sweet to say the least. My partner and I pulled out a 11-9 tiebreaker to seal it. The guys we beat I heard hadn't lost a match so it...

    From Worst to First Congrats Washington Park Alta A-5 Champions

    We finished the season yesterday in good fashion yesterday. It's been a fun journey...well at least this part of it was fun. It was no fun last season finishing dead last. It wasn't without going through adversity though. We got into the playoffs on the last day at line 5. We needed 4 lines from...

    Creekstone Estates Alta A5 Men's team(Bad Sports)

    Their team like many teams I've run across in my time in Alta are a bunch of sore losers. It wasn't enough the captain was moaning the whole night about calls in our line 5 match(played as one of the first two lines due to rain). The guy was serving a flat serve that no spin on it hitting many...

    Sectionals in Asheville 40 + (Southern Section)

    I had a pretty good time last weekend. I went 3-1 in singles. One win was a guy defaulting in the second set(LA). I think they had taken the two lines they needed to secure a spot in the finals. It was good tennis the whole weekend. I'm pretty sure LA won the men's 4.0 division. I hope they do...

    OHBH & grip

    I'm pretty cheap. I spend enough on tourneys and league fees. I need to save somewhere to cut costs. :) So I've been thinking in order to save money start cutting my grips in half as I buy them and only wrapping the bottom portion of my raquet..as the top is never used anyway. Anyone else ever...

    Congrats McGhee Tennis Center A-2 champions

    Okay, I actually got to see the end of this unlike the Water's Edge team. It went down to line 5 and man did line 5 come up big winning in the third set after losing the first. The other team was pretty hyped after breaking Mcghee in the first game of the third set. The guy was giving the...

    Tenn win's 4.0 40 + nationals again?

    So I'm out at a usta league match last night and a guy tells me that the Tenn 40 plus team won the nationals from Knoxville. While as a Tenn player myself I applaud them but at the same time...I must ask...what the hell is going on. I say this because of a couple of reasons. We had a...

    Water's Edge Men AA champions(back to back)

    Congrats are in order to my former teammates at Water's Edge. They won the AA-3 championship this past weekend(won A-1 in the spring). They remind me of my highschool basketball team back in the day. The motto was "We don't rebuild We reload". Congrats fellas.

    Potential usta retirement party

    Well...now that Derek Jeter is done with baseball, I will turn my attention to seriously contemplating retiring from USTA all together. There are several factors that is going to go into the thought process. 1. I am on the list to be bumped to 4.5. There are just simply not any teams in...

    Junior tennis

    So what advice do any of you have about junior tennis tourneys as far as getting points for a junior that hasn't played much. Chatt_town 3rd is not the best in the nation of course but he started late and now wants to play some tourneys. One lady was telling me about a tourney in rome that had...

    Why coaching is against the rules

    So I'm at the state this weekend in Memphis. I have to say this to set up where I'm going with this. I was absolutely killing that one hander this weekend. The first two matches were played indoors as it rained. So the balls were sitting much lower and I was hammering them for winners down the...

    Junior tourney discussion

    Where do I ask a question about Usta junior tourneys? I may have missed it but I thought there was a junior player discussion board. I need info about junior tennis.

    If Fed is to win another major can we all agree...

    It will be Wimeldon and it would have to be either this one or next year or it's a wrap for Fed. I think between Murray, Novak and Nadal....it's just too much to ask with the other majors....not to mention others are trying to take him down as well. I'm a big fan of his but I think it's getting...

    Great Skills No heart

    That was the theme of my semi final doubles match in a tourney this weekend for one of the guys we were playing. Let me give you a little back round first. The first guy is about 6'8. I use to play Alta with his team. His partner was also a member of the team. The partner is suppose to be a AA...

    eeeeeouch. Has anyone else done this...

    So I'm out playing my weekly singles match with the 6'8 guy....it's pretty close...I dropped the first set 6-7. We are 4-4 in the second when He hits a low approach low slice deep in my backhand corner. I scurry over to get into position. I'm there...very very low and think I have lined the one...

    Get your tickets now from ticket master(me).lol Just kidding....this is going to be some great tennis no doubt. I hear Mt Vernon brings the pain. This may be a preview of the finals. They could meet in the finals of city in a few more weeks again if all goes well for the two teams. I saw two...

    Why I love the 40 + USTA leagues

    Well...so my captain and team are pretty frustrated today. We put together another great season....only to have it come to an end playing some young kids that were clearly above the 4.0 level. I'm not as frustrated as I pretty much know this is going to happen every season especially in Atlanta...

    AA-1 Alta

    So does anyone know of any teams that are in this league? I think I saw a team out of Bitsy cleaning house this past Summer. I just heard yesterday about a team out of Water's Edge. When I heard who was playing line 3, I decided I have to go check them out in a couple of weeks(they are on break...

    What is you biggest weakness?

    If you dare to share. :) Mine is clearly the ability to serve a quality second serve. The player that gives me the most problems are the ones who actually know how to return a weak second serve. Most tend to over hit and I end up getting away with murder most of the time. I do have days...

    Tennis is a funny sport...but I love it.

    Man, This time last year, I had won I think 6 singles tourneys, 4 doubles and 2 mixed. Well....this year I did win 4 doubles and 3 mixed, but I only won like 2 singles tourneys. 2 of the tourneys were actually 4.5...not the strongest 4.5 players but they were 4.5 players. I actually won the...

    If Fed had Gasget or Wawrinka's backhand

    How would it have changed his h2h with Nadal particular in the majors? I think those two while obviously not as great of players as fed all around. I think they have a different mentality when hitting the backhand. They go down the line more which clearly gives Nadal problems. He can't camp out...

    What exactly is an era? When did Feds Start and end?

    Is it just years(1990-2000) or individual? I ask because I see many posts saying this player was the greatest of a particular era. I think Fed has gotten a raw deal because he has been able to play well for so long. It is clear that Nadal is probably the better player now but looking at...
