Yeah you guys were pretty good next to us.
Were you playing some kind of ranked doubles match against the two other guys or were they friends?
I was just playing with some intermediate friends so I didn't bust out the new balls.
I played a doubles tourny there like a few months ago lol..that was my first time on carpet too..so weird! Def easy on the knees but the ball just skids and i prefer hardcourts better stillYesterday I played on a carpet court for the first time. All I can say is wow that was a different experience. This was in Naperville Tennis Club. It was definatelly slower than the hard courts that I am used to, the ball seems to bounce really high and I never hit so many top spin serves that were unreturnable. Very good and comfortable on the feet. Ball had allmost no sound when bouncing from the court. I liked it
thats for sure lol...i was out both days as well in the afternoon so i just had shorts and a T...love playing outside a lot more than indoors as wellI played both saturday and sunday in the morning. Started out cold but then started to strip off the layers and played with shorts and longsleve t-shirt at the end. Love playing outside a lot more than in the incubator
yes it was lol...thats me ..we should all get a group of us together and have a big hitting outing...thatd be funi wish i found this thread sooner! i wondered why nobody was responding in the odds and ends section!
i live in park ridge and am desperate to play tennis this summer. i had a membership at RTTC but opted to not renew this year.
there are 8 beautiful lit courts near my place but i would drive as well. would anyone be willing to hit with me this summer? i really want to be able to play numerous times per week. i am 4.5-5 former junior and college player. i think i already emailed Mario.....
wasnt that you supermario?
haha since i have rogers gear...ill be #2 seed and ill see you in the final..but with a different result than at the aussie openSince I have Nadal's gear I should be #1 seed and have a bye all the way to the final!
And also a 6-0, 6-0, 5-0 (40-0) lead in the final...
Darn it, I just realized I will probably be the worst one out of Super Mario, SOY, and tennisguy!!!haha since i have rogers gear...ill be #2 seed and ill see you in the final..but with a different result than at the aussie open
Haha yeah right!haha who knows i can be the worst lol...yes well all dress up as pros
haha too funny...ya never knowww....i didnt do too well at the ITF circuit though...well see how this summer goesHaha yeah right!
You get 3rd in state the same year I can't even get past first round of Sectionals...... and now you do the ITF circuit and qualies while I sit at home all day and play video games!
Maybe if Mario ate a poison mushroom the day before.........
Thats right in my area..im in Palatine. If you wanna hit, let me know and we can set up a hit somewhereI'll be traveling to Schaumburg IL from 12 to 25 APR (I'm from Argentina). My level is aprox NTPR 4.5/5.0, is there anyone interested in playing with me? Let me know so I take my racquets!
That's great! I'll take my gear and contact you when I arrive! BTW, I see from your signature that your're using the new KPS88. I've been playing with stock K90s for the last 1 1/2 year and am really happy with them... however I'm curious about the KPS88 and if it's better enough (for me, playing mostly on clay) to justify a change, guess I'll have to test a demo soon.Thats right in my area..im in Palatine. If you wanna hit, let me know and we can set up a hit somewhere
Come on!!!! I'm an engineer, and during my studies never gave up playing tennis! Elguin is pretty close to Schaumburg... the company I work for has a support center there. If you can make some time in April let me know!I'll have to study for the damn Professional Engineering exam for a whole month of April
Yeah I am interested, how much are you looking for?Great idea! Let me know if you want me to take my Head Liquidmetal Radical Tour... just answered to you in another thread I have this frame new in 4-3/8... still interested?
Well, here in Buenos Aires I can easily sell it for aprox USD140, since these player's frames are even harder to find here than in the states.Yeah I am interested, how much are you looking for?
Would you be willing to wait until you came in April to deliver the racquet so I don't have to pay for international shipping?
Yeah for sure, but I actually have two of them so I am already pretty used to it, I was just looking for a third for another spare, but I will wait awhile until I actually need it before I splurge.Sorry to hear that TokyopunK... Anyway if I have enough space I will take the racquet with me and maybe we can meet to hit some balls.
