Now it says 269 mins
It doesn't look that way though. It looks like RKelly is hitting back to the middle and you are the one pulling him off the court.
I'm with JackB1....
YOU initiate every aggressive shot.
RKelly only feeds back to you, nice moderate pace, nice easy spin, nice mid NML location mostly to your short forehand, which you like.
YOU hit one back to him, then pound his backhand corner.
I told cheetah to leave everything about me in, the bad, the very bad, and the ugly hehehe. I wish he had left those 2 points in as well.
I shouted out whenever I hit Smart Targets. I hope they show up in the video.
Well, they'll only show up if Cheetah hit a winner on those particular points.
Do you have any video of you beating those top 30 wta players?
Did you have video gear in 1978?
I see this is a sensitive issue for you, so I'll pass and not comment any further.
Oh my god this going to be awesome. Cant wait..lol.
I agree about the rallying. I either rally, play sets or play drop feed points. My friend in the vid and I warm up for 15 then play sets and drop feed points (which we filmed and I posted).
If you post that the vids are rally vids, I am going to be looking for some nice consistency down the middle personally.
I would rather film myself playing points because I film for myself, and posting the vid is secondary. I want to see how I am hitting certain shots under duress.
If you guys wanted to watch me tee off on balls coming down the pipe, I'd look like a much better player and be high fiving myself. Would not help me a lick in match play though.
The best rally vids I have seen are Aimr75s and Tennis Ballas. Those are just killer.
Did you fix your camera yet? I want to see the improved powerplayer.
The guy who brings the video camera is obviously the one in charge. I spent a few minutes introducing my racket to the viewers and it showed up in the video (when we watched the beginning on the camera) as almost nothing because I did not realize I was standing below its FOV. Point is the other player, not being a seasoned pro, will be more passive.
No its workable though. More about getting the guy I want to film against to play. We hit saturday but people kept coming over to jump in or talk and we never got to play sets, which is our main thing we like to do.
I just know the video will be really entertaining. We have had people come watch us play before, because his technique is so good, and I was told it actually looked like really good tennis. We have long rallies and both employ multiple strategies against each other.
So I want to see this as much as you do.
Did you watch Giorgi play Coretja today? Her movement is amazing.
Yes they were hitting the snot out of the ball too. I saw the last set.
They sure were. I think she has better footwork than Oudin.
Feeling very sleepy. Have played a lot today. Morning for an hour, then a little while with that old guy that cheetah met, and then with cheetah. Is the video going to be uploaded any time soon?
Probably 20 mins...
See posts 22 and 24 of below thread. Leed is going at you there indirectly. He has really taken this to heart.
Don't be an instigator or I'll call you 5263.
The same leed who is claiming to be the expert on rallying morals is the same guy posting in the adult section about how he deflects lesser players on public courts who beg him to play with him.
Not a video, but here is a pic of leed beating a top-30 WTA player:
Just started reading this forum as I find the vids useful and entertaining. One day, if I work up the courage I will attempt to post a vid. Kudos to everyone that does, because I think it is courageous to say the least.
I get the general consensus that LeeD's comments should be taken with a grain (or sack) of salt, but it has piqued my interest to see if video exists of him hitting.
If so, can someone please post the link.
suresh video could be up any minute now. I'll post it in the thread suresh started.
Suspense is too much
I thought you were good.
That sentence has two interpretations
There's no doubt that Sureshs is good at eating Tika masala and naan. And color coordinating.
Eh I've seen worse.
Cheetah I know he is hitting short and it is just a rally but why are you letting almost every ball bounce twice?
who is sureshs?
the one near the camera?
It's like Federer vs Wawrinka
22:20 "That was a smart target!"
I'm still sore and don't want to run. Bending down is pain since last week which is why I'm standing straight up most of the time in the vids. Joints, tendons and all that is fine.. my muscles are just sore and tired. I've been up till 3-4am too every night for the last 2 months studying for interviews and then waking up at 9. tirrrrredddd. Even my neighbor noticed. I live on the 2nd floor and I usually run up and down the stairs when i go out/come back. He said to me today 'hey why you walking all of a sudden?' haha.
I keep telling myself I'll take a day off but for some reason I don't. But I'm pretty busy this week so I won't be able to play tennis until Friday so this will be the first week of no sports and no gym in over a year easy.
I'll probably sneak in a few 1000 shadow swings though. My bh is bugging me now. Gotta fix that asap.
so the one with the green shirt is around 3.5,
am i right?
19:16 "Smart Targets"
cheetah i really hope this is an extra friendly match,
'cause you barely move or try to be aggressive.
it's like you 2 cannot move your feet or something.
like when i eat a heavy meal and cannot move my legs.
I overdid the playing one day last week. hit 3 times in a day. haven't been the same since. Suresh is also usually more active than in that vid but he said he played a couple times already before he met me today. I also changed to a new grip style 2 weeks ago so I don't have the control I used to have yet. I'm just a mess. Suresh and I only have extra-friendly hits anyway. I'm just trying to give him as many swings as possible
oh, ok thanks.
i really look forward on seeing you do a real fight match.
i'll try to video one of mine.
we have one club that records the court onto 4 cameras
but it's a long waiting list.
4 cameras? That sounds pretty cool. Kind of like the courts at the bolletieri academy. Do you have access to the recordings if you want?
yes, then you go online and download whatever you need.
i'm pretty excited to go there.
Can Sureshy bagel TLM?
Its beyond hilarious that sureshs has talked so much smack over the years and tells me about how bad my technique is and on and on. Then it turns out he is a 3.0 level player.
In their dream world I am sure he can, and I am sure there would be some bagels being served.
A great way to start off the week with this thread. Hilarious.
I was reading this particular response, and I chuckled to myself.
I think you could swap out Cheetah's username for LeeD as the author and nobody would be able to tell the difference.
Nice Suresh good to see you guys hitting. Thanks for uploading. outfit looks cute.
tlm has no chance against me. He posts videos playing against a guy who gives him nice easy balls in the same place with no spin. He needs to come down here and get a sense of what it takes.
Good to see you guys hitting.
thanks for posting.
