    My first two matches... and a little rant on competitive parents

    Yea, many of them(parents) are terrible. I had my son playing but by the time he wanted to really play he was probably 12 or 13. So he was a bit behind but manage to win 9 of 10 of his highschool matches as a junior. The problem was he went to a magnet school and the principle went back on her...

    Is it legal for your opponent to wave his racket/arms while you're hitting?

    You run into enough @$$holes you will start nailing them and not losing a drop sleep over it. My wife and I have actually lost matches for trying to to avoid nailing people that didn't know how to get off the net or back up with overheads....and I'm cool with that, but someone being an...

    Is it legal for your opponent to wave his racket/arms while you're hitting?

    I've hit a woman and a guy for doing silly $h*t like that. The woman got hit in the chest if I remember with an overhead. I asked her not to scrub her feet in the court when she was not making a point to get to a different position on the court...not even running in place...just scrubbing her...

    We are five matches away from sending an undefeated 18+ 4.5 mens team home from Nationals

    Good luck brother. So where does your team stand? The team that's from southern 4.5. Do you know where they are from? I'm thinking Atlanta or Memphis. Those two areas have some tough teams to play at state and sectionals most of the time.

    Federer is now 1-9 against #1 at Slams

    Dayummmmmm.....I guess its a good thing he himself was number 1 many of those years or he'd not have the 20 majors he has huh. Looks like number 1 does well. :)

    Who's responsibility is it to call "double bounce"?

    That's true for singles....but any many doubles cases, your partner clearly can see it as well as the people on the other side.

    Who's responsibility is it to call "double bounce"?

    I think I'm going to go with Ripper on this one. :) If I didn't see it, then I'm not going to give you a point. If I didn't see it bounce twice then It probably didn't. In 99 percent of the cases you can tell it bounce twice anyway.

    Who's responsibility is it to call "double bounce"?

    Person hitting it or someone on that side of the net has to call it. You can't. My wife got nailed in the face years ago for not calling it when her partner clearly hit a ball back that had bounced twice..and rather than her calling it...she stood there and the guy from the other side came...

    Oreilly Opelka - A future Sampras or yet another American serve bot?

    Hold on....now. I am partial towards the 1hbh...but I don't take anything away from a real good two hander like Novak and even Nadal. Nadal would probably have another 5 years on tour left he had used his more, but who's going to knock him if he ends up with more majors than Fed and it surely...

    Well...you may have a point, but I'm not seeking status. I don't think kissing @$$ on a forum or with anyone for that matter gets you anywhere, but then again, that's just my experience. Yours may be different. :) Just for fun...tell me..who on here has status and why?

    Oreilly Opelka - A future Sampras or yet another American serve bot?

    Lets make sure we are on the same page...you mean my dislike of his use of his bh? For the record, Nadal is the only one I've given a pass to for running around bhs and he has a pretty solid bh....but he's a freak of nature.lol So this conversation can't really continue until you come to grips...

    The Hard Rocky Road To Super Bowl LIV (February 2, 2020): Who’s Rolling The Dice At The Hard Rock???

    I think it's their system that is key. They over the years have gone through players just like most. I mean Brady is great, but if you get guys that buy into the system they have then you get the same results. I'm not big fan of them, but I'm certainly not a hater. They do what they do very well.

    Tips for playing in 100F+ heat

    drinking water is not enough. You need to drink Pedialyte or the off brand(What I drink) and I drink it straight. Anything over 90 I keep 2 to 3 bottles in my bag. I also eat as the match is going on. I remember once I ate 10 slices of pizza while I was playing a final after having won the...

    Oreilly Opelka - A future Sampras or yet another American serve bot?

    Apples & Oranges brother. Novak does it to finish a short ball most of the time. You don't see him hang out in the bh corner for most of a match. I've seen him do it for a point here and point there, but not nearly as much ;infact, not enough to even have a discussion about when he does do it...

    Oreilly Opelka - A future Sampras or yet another American serve bot?

    I didn't say anything about winners. I'm just talking about the fact that he uses his forehand and clearly runs around his bh to keep from using it. Then if you break down the amount of backhands he hit through it will be worse.....

    Oreilly Opelka - A future Sampras or yet another American serve bot?

    Let me put it this way. It is said by most of the commentators that in order to be successful(which I presume means beating him) "you must get him out of the bh corner. So you tell me. I'd be willing to bet this. That if the stats were available he hit way the hell more forehands than he did...

    Oreilly Opelka - A future Sampras or yet another American serve bot?

    If it was world class...he sure as hell wasn't using it. I don't see Novak hanging out in the BH corner. Whether it sucked or whether he just didn't have the confidence to use it...it's all the same to me.

    It won't take much to equal Isner's career. I mean what has he accomplished that was so special other than win a 3 day marathon? Again, he may not...I couldn't care less. We will see in the next 4 or 5 years how things develops for him. I'm not a guy that's in his corner, but I'm not pulling...

    Nah, you wouldn't even say that to a person while talking to them in person...especially not knowing them.
