Post videos of yourself playing well.

Every video starts out with I was tired because I only got 3 hours of sleep, and I played 5 hours before this, and my knee was hurting, and my back was stuff, and the sun was in my eyes, and I wasn't really trying because it's just a warm up, and I'm just getting over the flu, and my strings were really loose, and I was sad because my cat died, and that's why...

Tired of it.

In Russia, near Moscow. If you travel 30mi away from the city sometimes it's like being in a time capsule. I bet this court looks the same it used to be in the 80s.
The surface is fast indeed but not that fast as modern day plastic carpets .
Very cool! We had one club here in NY that had courts like that but they resurfaced them maybe 5 years ago. They are still fast but don't have that shine anymore.

If you remember courts in bubble at Kolomenskaya, they painted 2 of them and they are damn slow now... Was pretty balanced a bit rubbery mid-slippery hard (and still is on other 3).

Courts are getting slower everywhere. In the US I live around this area. ( North Bergen NJ)
There is a big tennis facility you can see on the satellite image. They used to build a couple of new courts every 2-3 years and every time the put slower and slower surface.
You see all the courts are different color. You can choose a tennis era you like in terms of court speed ))

I liked courts there. You are right - optimal speed. And 6 balls lived for 6 hours. At the new tennis courts in Sheremetevo we wear out 6 balls in 2 hours.

Thanks. The kid is cool. Did you teach him one handed backhand or it was his own choice?
Thanks, too. I taught him a two handed backhand and the one handed slice and volley. I also play Frisbee with him every now and then.
Sometime in spring this year he suddenly switched to the one hander during one of our sessions. He told me that he had to think of Thiem and Federer and decided to play like them. Funny.

I dont know why people always have to choose their worst(sick, cat dying) days to shoot tennis videos. If i am recording a video for TT crowd, i have to make sure i am in top form, my hair has be slick, i have to choose a shirt that yell " i am a muscular man", my equipments have to be new and shiny. and obviously, i haven't had any video to contribute.

It's only Jollyroger that you need to please.


The rest of TT don't give a d@mn.

To me most hitting clips look like dying cats anyway.

IP man??? some hacker superman????
Haha, nay, it's the grand master himself!


Edit: just want to clarify that the above picture of j011y (I assume it's him) looks like Donnie Yen, the star in the movie, which all have english subtitles if you can find them on your streaming service. Worth a watch imo!

Speaking of excuses... I had a sore shoulder and just had an hour-long serving lesson immediately before this match. Still managed to hit 5 aces and 20+ winners over two sets... However, I haven't played in the 4 weeks since this match due to my shoulder finally breaking down and being in chronic pain. Pretty ironic that it happened after finally getting a proper lesson... not blaming the lesson at all, I felt something bad stretching for a forehand previously and kept playing through like a fool. Good news is the shoulder is slowly getting better... I can make a throwing motion without pain thankfully since a couple of days ago. Anyway I'm glad my last match was this clean:

LOVE this series! Such a great life story and Donnie does Ip Man justice in that role.
