    Thanks, it's my one dependable stroke.

    I plan to take some video this weekend.

    I'm going to the Verizon store before the weekend and if I don't end up in jail we will be filming in 1,000fps.

    Epitome of first world problems when 240fps isn’t enough...

    You'll be laughing out the other side of your face when I'm cutting a swath through the eastern section in 2019 with my Pete Sampras serve.

    Tied for #2 in Eastern for those keeping track at home. P.S. making my 4.5 league singles debut tonight under the lights at SRI.

    Lost both matches last week. Tuesday night ended with a 2 & 2 loss. I think it was closer than score given the combination of the amount of game points I had on serve and my dismal conversion rate. My biggest takeaway from the match was my 2nd serve or lack there of. Stunk worse than stale dogshit left out in the sun.

    Thursday night was an utter demolition, 0 & 1, and can be accurately summed up by the following:

    As suspected, quality of league play is at least 1 to 2 levels higher than the tournament circuit.

    I thought of this video in my match today. My opponent kept giving me loopy BS and the high takeback became a game changer. I went from spraying balls 10 feet long to crushing them into the corners.

    So thanks.

    Glad to be of service! Didn't do me much good last night but hopefully, I don't have to play many more guys coming off the tour for a while.

    This thread is awesome haha. Could you post a link to whatever 4.5 ranking you're basing it off of?

    Congrats on your tournament wins!

    Also, you were saying you plan to only stay at 4.5 for one year. Is the appeal process easy in your area?
