Thanks. You sound like you're a fun opponent to play! I'll keep you guys up to date on my stuff, because I have Midwest Club Tennis Championships in Wisconsin in March and the National tournament in April in Surprise, Arizona (I've never been to either state). I remember playing a mixed doubles match and destroying the Toledo mixed dubs players 6-1, and then played another one and won 6-2 and neither of my female partners could serve to save their lives. It was like playing with an even weaker Radwanska and then a really inconsistent Dementieva.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Surprise is fantastic ! Was there last year for a USTA event, and it was a gorgeous facility and took care of what felt like a million of us!

Re: Your tennis results?!

I played my first Ultimate Tennis match of the season today, and I got my rear end handed to me: 2-6, 3-6. I got broken five times in nine service games. Unless your name is Elena Dementieva, you can't win if you don't hold serve.

If it doesn't rain tomorrow, I'll play my first USTA Flex League match of the season. I will serve better, trust me.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Heya I have a "sort of" intersting story to tell This guy I played today had a decent first serve, but on the second, he would occasionally serve underarm so it would just drop over the net. It was soo annoying I started to be able to tell when he was about to do it though.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Played league 3.5 singles tonight and it is the first time in six seasons that I left the court freakin' burning up although I won the match.

First I was playing the freakin pusher that was not even admitted into hell! I beat him 6-2 in the first set; and was making stupid errors off his slow hit balls, and the second set eventually went to a tie-break.

I served from the deuce side and called 8-8. Won the point and went to serve from the ad side at 9-8 for the match. My opponent all of a sudden says, no the score is wrong. It can't possibly be 9-8 with you serving from that side. I tried to explain to him that when I called the score at 8-8 on my first serve, he should have corrected me if he thought the score was wrong, not after we play the point, and I go up 9-8; because I KNOW the score I was calling was right and I was serving from the correct end. I hit an ace out wide to win the match 6-2, 7-6(8). So you know that pissed him off right.

So of course this prick is steady arguing and putting up a fuss and my only reply back to him is regardless if I called the score wrong or not (which is what he was accusing me of), he should have corrected me right then and there, not after we play the point. "Oh, I didn't hear you call the score he says." Of course I went on the explain that the Code states that if you do not hear your opponent call the score before he/she serves, it is your obligation to stop play and request the score. He didn't. I just hate folks who don't take the time to learn the rules and just want to go off of what they think is right. Very irritating night athough I kick his ass.

Re: Your tennis results?!

I've had a wrist injury so I haven't been able to play tennis for a while. The muscles in my dominant hand (right) aren't quite strong yet, so I have to take it easy. Looks like Midwest Club Tennis Tournament is out of the question but Nationals in Surprise, AZ are still a possibility.

Hope you have a speedy recovery and get back to the courts soon.

I posted this on Monday and I am still going back and forth with the freakin league coordinator to decide the match. Oh yeah, my opponent lied about shaking hands at the end of the match.

Re: Your tennis results?!

Playing in the Lost Forest Winter Classic Tournament this weekend. I won my round of 16 match 6-3, 6-2. I was extremely solid on serve, but had some problems returning in the first set. Missed about 8 easy forehand returns. Other than that, really happy about the result. My wife came to the tournament to watch me play and she said that she was looking at my ass the entire time. Talking about I got a male Serena booty. As if...........

I play the quarters and semis hopefully tomorrow in the morning. Wish me luck.

Thanks, but I got my ass handed to me this morning by the no.2 seed in the quarter-finals. I loss 6-2, 6-2. 25 unforced errors and 36% first serve percentage will get you this result. My opponent was solid and ran everything down.

Next event: Major Zone, Houston, Texas Easter Weekend.

Oh I get so irritated by players that play like that. I'm not the most patient opponent.
