Omg I Just Played A Match Against Mcenroe!

His brother, that is...the other brother, Mark Mcenroe

He is the brother of John Mcenroe and plays a lot like him, right down to the serve and volley style and the weird stance when he serves. I played him this morning in the semifinals of the mens singles championships at the club (I got in as a "wild card" by winning the junior event and he has won this three years in a row.) We both won our first two matches easily but I got outplayed by him. I don't like playing lefties or serve and volleyers and I got both He has an amazing serve and great volleys as well a solid forehand. I recently changed my game to a serve and volley style a month ago and its obviously going to take time, but if I could ever volley like he does lol. I was a little annoyed because I went down 5-2, fought off six set points with him serving at 5-3 to go to 4-5, and then promptly lost my serve with some bad play. He ended up going from there and beat me 6-4 6-2, but it was a still good experience...

Well, at least it wasn't Patrick.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

You went for scrappy baseline retrieving to serve and volleying? Goodness who are you trying to be? Daja Bedanova?

If you don't have the serve like Pete has then stick to baseline, it will make your future better. this is exactly the reason why Tim Henman can't win Wimby.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.
