    The Kyrgios match is hilarious!

    OMG! Getting a patron thrown out, hitting shots one direction while looking the other way, underhanded serve after hitting 3 aces in a row. This match has everything. Can’t wait to see what happens next!

    Is it me or did Fed’s strokes just not look smooth last night?

    I’m talking that even when he had time, especially his forehand. Not the usual patented Fed grounded, head dead still, smooth flowing through the ball graceful stroke. Seemed short, quick, abbreviated, coarse, labored. Like he’s hitting at the ball vs. swinging through the ball. Just didn’t...

    With all of our technology, why have line judges?

    Why deal with so much human error? Missed calls, points played over, frustration. Help me to understand why electronic line calling is not being implemented.

    Any Pro Hurricane users?

    Grabbed two of my older frames that hadn’t been used in nearly 2 years. Both strung with PH17. They felt great. Hum, perhaps I should give it a go again. I’m sure these frames lost their tension. Felt quite soft and great control.

    So, any pros using the over hyped super amazing Clash?

    I mean it’s supposed to be the most amazing and biggest advancement in 100 years. Making all other frames obsolete. So why aren’t all the Wilson sponsored pros using it?

    Just went through an end of season purge refresh and restock. Feels good!

    Went through all my gear. Pitched socks, shorts, some old worn out shirts, sweat bands, towels, shoes, and hats that definitely needed pitched. Ordered a bunch of new shirts and shorts, new socks, wrist bands, 6 hats, 4 pairs of shoes. Cleaned out my bags, found $17 in one of them. Re-gripped my...

    PTTD anyone?

    posterior tibial tendon dysfunction...ugh. I was in a boot for 4 weeks. Went to a brace, 5 days later...oh the pain. Back in the boot. Have not touched a racquet in 2 months. I’m going nuts. Ortho said this is a slow healing tendon as it is deep set and to be patient. Still going nuts. Anyone...

    I’m calling it right now ....Rafa is going to retire this match

    That look on his face it’s like he’s realizing my body is not going to make it through this match. His game depends on his legs I think he’s about done

    Why is Tahoe Tennis responding to threads that needed in 2006?

    Dude, are you in a time machine or something? How do you even find these old dead threads? None of the original posters have been around since 2007!

    Madison Keys....duh why don’t I just keep using the same and successful strategy which is .....

    Recovery time?

    Lately I’ve been playing just about every night unless it rains. Singles. We play anywhere from an hour and a half to two hours. I’m 63. Have about 4 guys available in our group. Two guys in mid thirties, other two guys in mid 40’s. One is USTA rated 4.5, the rest are 4.0. So this isn’t patty...

    Huh...just a simple change, dramatic difference.

    So this afternoon my forehand left me. So after 30 or 40 minutes of frustration my hitting partner asks, “why did you change your forehand stroke?” I told him I haven changed anything and have no idea why I am so off today. He don’t have your wrist laid back today at all. I just...

    Made my day! And his too!

    I was hitting with my ball machine this afternoon and a guy drives up, gets out of his car after watching me for a while and asks if he could hit with me for a while. Sure...... Said he is new to the area, he is from Africa, broken English, 35 years old. “I play very well, win tournaments and...

    How to lose belly fat?

    I pulled a tendon in my foot last November. Doc put me in a boot for nearly 3 months. Then slow therapy. So, over the winter and holidays like an idiot...I ate everything in sight, especially sweets. Gained 13 pounds! It’s all in my waist. I’m back active again and have cut out sweets, but it’s...

    Adidas Defiant like!

    I really bought them for clay courts but decided to try them last night on hardcourt. Unlike other Adidas I’ve tried these are roomy! Extremely comfortable and great ventilation. Played for over an hour right out of the box and very comfortable. So I ordered another pair for casual wear as they...

    Artificial sweeteners causing an increase in belly fat ......

    I just read several articles after doing research on this and it seems like what they’re saying is your body does not know how to process some of these chemicals so it stores them as belly fat. I think I am having the effects of that. I have been in a boot due to an ankle injury for eight weeks...
