    What's practice like for your team(s)

    Practice. Sigh. I joined a team this season and knew immediately it was a mistake. The team is full of the most anti-social people I’ve come across. Seriously. The practices are so robotic, not a single person talks, no chit chat, no friendly hello, no acknowledgment that another person has...

    70% game and consistency

    Two things...your physical endurance is low...but you know that. Secondly...your attitude made your errors came out hitting fine, but somewhere in there hit your number of shanks and your attitude changed from positive to stopped expecting the best from yourself and...

    Breaks during changeovers in tiebreaker?

    You treat the time between as a set; so you get two minutes...I can be longer in hot weather...but the 10 minute break is for a full set between 2nd and 3rd set...but the tiebreak is continuous

    You saw where I said it was my first experience with a ball machine...right? There is a bit of an adjustment And I usually hit against a wall for 200 times or more per stroke.

    Seniors lounge (over 50) come on in.

    This morning for the first time ever I used a ball machine for a little over an hour. Once I got the settings right; feed rate, spin, speed, height...I lasted four full baskets of 80 to 100 balls. That machine is relentless. I set out just to concentrate on movement and footwork. Set the...

    Rod Laver is everywhere. Was he this visible in tennis in the 70s, 80s, and 90s?

    Lol I had no idea how to play doubles and kept getting passed left and right...during Rod’s serve, after being passed I joked “Rod, I can’t keep carrying you on my back.” Rod looked puzzled at me and proceeded to serve 5 win the game. All during Mac saying, “ you hear that Rocket...

    Rod Laver is everywhere. Was he this visible in tennis in the 70s, 80s, and 90s?

    I had the privilege to play a set of doubles with Rod as my partner in 1994. Our opponents a mother corporate guy and Mr McEnroe himself. Rod was very down to earth...Johnny Mac was showing him a lot of deference and respect. I ran into Rod again at Indian Wells two decades later and said...

    Seniors lounge (over 50) come on in.

    Ironic I lost with the same score...I had only two double faults, both in the second set. I played a speedy steady grinder who I obviously wasn’t ready for...he also played with an oversize weed that he used to carve me up. I challenged every one of his service games, I just couldn’t...

    Remember when people said Rafas style of play would lead to a short career.

    I’ll admit it...I didn’t think he’d last this long...very happy he has...remember when he’d fade away after Roland Garros?
