Please don't toast me for this, because I seldom say I have a good day at tennis.....
Today, day before Thanksgiving, had my best hitting session ever, with a good 4.0 player. We actually managed 20 shot topspin rallies, both of us hitting hard and deep mostly.
Even my slices were deep and penetrating, as was Steve's.
We even managed to hit our corners, both DTL and CC.
But of course, playing doubles after an hour of really hard hitting, we let down a bit and missed some easy shots, showing reality over our hitting session.
It's good to know it's possible to hit decently, for a change.
Now I like tennis again, until the next bad day....

I envy being able to live in a place where you can just go out and play after mid October. Good to hear you were zoning today and dw about the bad days, they just make the good days so much better.

It's huge. Having lived on the east coast, I don't miss paying indoor court fees and having to compete for time in the winter. It's was 76 and sunny here today - got two hours in with the kids at the school courts for free. :) Nice post LeeD. Good days keep us out there!

This is what I aspire to achieve when I grow up. GR(ecreational)R(allying)OATing. I'm going to look for that LeeD look-a-like with the Wilson Ceramic at HRP for a hit...

Solid stuff Pickle. I remember, circa 1992, goating the USF varsity courts with my wilson ceramic. Don't tell anyone but I was playing my little sister and squeaked it out in a breaker.

What has this got to do with Tennis Tips/Instruction?

What has this got to do with Tennis Tips/Instruction?
IF this is considered spam, go look at the first page.
Jolly Roger and his 6.0 serve, pure spam.
Maxi asking dimitrovs ratings two different spam threads
I'd argue there are a bunch more that have turned into spamming, the public facility thread.

Report all of those first, if anything this is one of the better ones. You live for the good moments.

The instruction was sometimes you have bad days, other times good days. Enjoy and share your good moments but you're only as good as your bad days.

Thanks guys....
Yes, our bad days truly show our level of tennis, especially since for sure no one else has ever seen our good days. Well, Steve had.
Good to know, next day, 4.0 doubles, I allowed a girl to take over the net against our team, she flying around doing leaping backhand putway angle volleys, low touch net let winners, and driving the middle with net skimming slices. Yes, she was a cutie, and playing pretty well, too.

Sounds like you weren't watching the ball that day.

It's pickup 4.0 doubles.
I'd just played with the good guys, so got teamed with a decent guy completely off his game. He double faulted, no biggie, but missed his first serves by over 2' in height over the net, missed at least 5 sitter overheads from inside his own mid service court, and missed at least 10 reflex volleys that most player's would at least get back for a sitter. Best when he missed 3 straight forehand putaways after I served, so I almost got broken.
Everyone has to play badly sometime, so this was his.
That girl and her partner, possibly her brother, brought their A game.
