    Good current D2 college players playing USTA 4.5.

    I just took a 1&1 loss at 5.0 to a former 692 atp player. Felt bad he had to drive out for the match.

    YouTuber matchup Sam v Tim - NTRP 4.5 California vs Texas?

    From a Texas perspective, we have tournaments that are extremely competitive. The major zones pit me against better players than most league matches. It's not uncommon to get a 64 draw either. Yes, I think the absolute best play league but major zone tournaments are very much worth the money...

    I misquoted Tim. He has that record in tournaments not league matches.

    YouTuber matchup Sam v Tim - NTRP 4.5 California vs Texas?

    haha she is used to putting up with my stupidity. I forgot to pack my camera mount and she was tagging along for the morning. I figured out I needed to stop chipping as many returns back in the 2nd set and also started slicing more to the forehand once the rally started. That seemed like a big...

    Hey Everyone, here is Tim's video. I like his camera position quite a bit.

    YouTuber matchup Sam v Tim - NTRP 4.5 California vs Texas?

    This is fascinating. I don’t want to misquote Tim on his record. It may be qualified by 20-0 in tournaments. Looking at his utr profile he had some tough matches in league. Truthfully I thought I would be much lower than 4.42 as I’ve had some bad losses recently. Are you looking at tournaments...

    YouTuber matchup Sam v Tim - NTRP 4.5 California vs Texas?

    Yes, I would say so. I think people believe NTRP is drastically different between sections but my experience is its pretty competitive. Maybe it's worth noting that Tim is 20-0 at 4.5 in the last two years.

    YouTuber matchup Sam v Tim - NTRP 4.5 California vs Texas?

    Hey Guys, I had the pleasure of recording a match with Tim aka TennisTim aka TxT. I lost the first set 4-6 and was up a break 3-2 in the second when time expired for our court. He's a good player and super nice guy. Take a look and let me know what you think. Sorry I didn't edit in the score...

    Please, pick apart my game. Any feedback is helpful

    I thought about this a bit. It seems like it's difficult to see weaknesses when you hit with someone regularly. Also, he's not watching much film of me. It's nice to get a different perspective for improvement.

    Please, pick apart my game. Any feedback is helpful

    Thanks so much, ByeByePoly. When I first switched to the two hander, I modeled it after Hewitt's. Even had the straight arm take back. While I'm pretty consistent with it, I need to develop it into more of a weapon and add topspin. My problem is I'm a bit tight on it and end up using my arms too...

    Please, pick apart my game. Any feedback is helpful

    Thanks! Yes, volleys could still be better. For some reason in a warm up volley, I never move forward while hitting them but during a match I'm usually much better. Serves were toward the end of the video.

    Creatine: Yes or No?

    I think the problem is its hard to get that much creatine in a normal or good diet? You'd have to eat a lot of meat which may be unpalatable for a lot of people.

    Creatine: Yes or No?

    I thought I'd resurrect this thread rather than create a new one. I just wrote a post on my blog about my experiment and thoughts on supplementing with creatine and how it relates to tennis performance enhancement particularly. I think it's an often over-looked supplement with minimal...

    Texas Men's 4.0 18+ Sectionals - Aug. 14-16

    I think Dallas has it locked up at 5.0 although Talbot & Friend are insane doubles players. I had the fortune of getting my ass handed to me by them last fall. Watch out for Fort Worth next year at 4.5 ;)

    Surprise AZ NTRP Nationals this weekend

    I played 4.5 and it was alright. I'm kind of conflicted as to whether or not I'd play again next year. They gave an opponent an hour break in between his singles and doubles? I played usta tournaments with 3 full sets and they only gave me 30 minutes between events. My thoughts on the tourney...

    4.5 player looking to get to the next level.

    Thanks! I'm glad to hear it's helped other people. Yes, a lot of my trouble is a loss in focus or just taking some points off mentally. I don't really know how I rank myself. If I had to say, I'd put myself middle of the road 4.5. I have some nice wins against good players and some terrible...

    4.5 player looking to get to the next level.

    Not to be a shill for my own work but I don't edit out the bad points/errors on my videos. You can check them out here. I use mine to review for my own improvement so I like to leave in the errors and see what went wrong. It also helps to compare when I started. I've noticed I make fewer errors...
