What’s it with all these College Players and the Isner thing?

Semi-Pro
Anybody else watching the NCAA championship now? Saw one player doing the Isner Shapa between the legs bounce thing before serving, but the announcer said he played multiple sports and he was 6’5” so I figured he was a basketball player. Now J.J. Wolf is doing it as well. Is this what all the cool kids are doing these days?

These kids would have been 10-14 when Isner broke into the top 10, I am not surprised they started emulating him.

I played most of my high school tennis in the 1990s and you have no idea how many kids had the Sampras heel-rock.

I would love to see some players incorporate some behind the back Allen Iverson moves into their pre service routines

Watched the BC provincial juniors practice this am. Five Yonex (4 VCORE and one EZONE) to 2 Babolats. Is this a Shapo effect along with the between the legs bounce?

Noticed that before with JJ, but more distracting is that I can't get past him looking like Michael J Fox. So that is all I see while he plays!

Dude can CRUSH a ball though and that match was really good, right down the the wire.

The old Delorean he drives just makes it worse.

That's how I am with del Potro. All I see when I watch him play is Greg Brady from the Brady Bunch.
(With Nadal, it is sureshs that I see.)

Yup, she’s cool. I think she just finished college 2, 3 years ago as well, another one who would’ve grown up watching Big John. Although she’s super short so she has to be really deliberate doing it, not a lot of real estate to work with

Funny...my fiancee said the same thing, that he looked like Michael J Fox. We watched some of his match against Vocel last night. She mostly just laughed at him for that mullet though.

I think JJ looks more like Kevin Bacon than Michael J Fox since we are already talking about it. I feel like a teenage girl, this is getting weird now. Surprised no women have chimed in.

I started bouncing it between my legs like Isner and it added 60mph and 3 feet in elevation to my kick serve. You should try it. It’s my secret weapon.

She did a small tournament here in Vegas last fall .... messed it up multiple times .... kinda sad.

And as for women chiming in on the hair talk .... why exactly would we be chiming in?

I saw her at Citi last year. She punishes the ball.

I dunno, I’d rather be discussing Heather Locklear and Farrah Fawcett’s doppelgangers
