Against 4.0 50 year old player. He sliced a lot. Won 2 and 3. Easy peasy. But had a cramp 2nd set. Still pulled it out. I am so great still after not playing in so long.

I think if I played more than 2x a year it would be double bagels. I had an issue running and bending low for the low down the line slice. But after awhile I just stopped running for them as my legs were hurting. It was a low percentage shot off my inside out fh so I gave it to him to try as I was comfortably winning anyways.

I wore a sweat gutr under my hat. Oakley photochromic sun glasses. And had compression tights under my tennis shorts.
Adidas 2019 French open colorway. Adidas baracade clay 2019 shoes.

Gut/poly strings at 60lbs. Babolat vs gut 16 rpm blast 17 hybrid.

Also just ordered a pair of oakley flak 2.0 prizm golf glasses for tennis. I have a pair of radars with the same lense. It makes the yellow pop

I am trying to figure out which poster(s) you are trying to annoy on this one .... the equipment listing is way too impressive for someone who only plays 2X a year.

Should have done video so we could all enjoy your greatness man!
I was stumbling trying to change direction. Wasn't pretty. I just counted balls and after 4 in my part I hit a winner. Worked enough to cruise to a win even with a cramp.

I'm on a court everyday. But I feed balls to my kid.

You should be ashamed for losing games when your opponent was handicapped by not also having a sweat gutter under his hat.

But he said Baracade, not Barricade.

i had to look up what a sweat gutter is. I had imagined something absorbent - but instead it’s a strip of silicone rubber. Where does the sweat end up? I’m curious.
Down side of face instead of into eyes.

Update. Won 2nd round 0 and 0. Guy was a 3.0. Or maybe 3.5. Whatever level guys that hit sort of ok but miss on the 3rd ball. Took about 45 min. Feeling good. Next weekend against a 4.5. Legs might give out.

No, that is what I did to my last opponent when he was at the net - aimed right at his nads. He just managed to get his racquet in position before having his voice go up a couple of octaves.

I don't understand why TTPS is so shy to take on your challenge. I mean, if he loses to you, he gains some experience from playing a high level player. If he wins, he gets the braggin rights on tennis talk.
P/S: I accepted travlerajm challenge. Hope we can work out a match.

I'm not sure why. He claims I don't even play tennis. Then later he claimed I grew up training at an academy so he won't play me. Both of which is not true.

Nice. Lol. He won't read my posts though. So he cannot see my glowing posts about his ponytail. Are you not threatened by his forum posting acumen? He might replace you soon.

His posting IQ is very high. He has a flair for this. Some people are just born with talent, like Nadal.
