    I hit a couple times over Xmas and New Year with old MACer named Prestige Pro Lover. Broke some strings. Who knows when I will put them back in their. Oreder a reel of OG sheep Micro just because I don't hit enough to justify throwin X-1 and Red code in their to have them sit in a bag for 4 or 5 months.

    I got pissed after I lost a set on Sunday and then attempted to launch a ball out of the facility. My knee buckled on me and I ended up landing on the Har Tru on the other knee. So this is mikeler this week:

    Hard courts my friend. Never saw you get mad, but were usually winning though :) Even against that chinese guy on court 2 a few years ago at the citrus bowl, the pusher type with amazing placement.

    Had nothing to do with court surface and everything to do with putting the most effort of the day into an unnecessary shot! Funny, you brought up that match. It was 72 degrees and cloudy that day. I was losing 7-6, 5-1 and was down 5-3, 40-15 on his serve but saved those 2 match points. I ended up winning the 2nd set in a tiebreak. When I walked off the court to get new balls, the pro running the tournament goes "He is sweating like crazy, he may cramp up". I'm talking @McLovin sweat and then some. Sure enough, his cramps start happening in the calves during the second game of the 3rd set. By the 3rd game, he is peg legged and quits. After we shake hands, I give him some salt stick electrolytes and he walks off the court 5 minutes later with no issues! The next day, I had a 3:45 minute match that I won in a 3rd set tiebreak. My legs were shot after those 2 matches.

    Frank was always hometown biased :) Tom not so much

    He was a very good player, hit both deep and short. I noticed his ability to reset on defense, his stuff was landing 6" on both sides of the baseline corner.

    Bragging about those legs but refuse to step on a hardcourt :D

    It was a great comeback, every shot he tried, he executed.

    It's all about saving my knees with avoiding hard courts. Then again, let's see what the diagnosis is tomorrow. I may not be playing for a few months and that may let everything heal.

    Best of luck, sounds like you did it worse than you said. At least the weather is cold while your injured.
