No one for greetings but whatever
« on: February 16, 2009, 09:28:19 PM »
Hey guys, I'm Shonoby! I'm in high school and i'm addicted to tennis( literally ) i can't get enough of it. I'm some where around good to ok at tennis, i can hit with pace and devastating angles on both sides. My servers are a copy of a Sampras serve( by default my body just moves like his, oh and its not as good lol ). I love approach shots, and backhands, winners and going to the net. I'm varsity at my school( but my school is not that awesome at tennis so...it doesn't say much ) but this year we'll make a mark. Ah...um...i think that's about all i have to say...oh and i'm 5'8 with moderate to full stroke swing, Wilson Hyper Hammer 5.3, one-handed backhand( continental grip ), semi-western forehand, Wilson shoes, I'm pretty fast with lots of stamina and great motion tracking skills. I try to make up swings and stokes that could actually be used, but right now I'm just trying to play as much tennis as i can with even more heart into it. Anyways great forums and great advice, loved the site too.

Sounds like you've caught the tennis bug early! :))

Have fun both on the court and here in the forums.
Also, there's lots of good info and links on the rest of the T4U site.
Enjoy. :)

Hi all,
Iím not too new to tennis, but I donít get to play enough to play at the level I would like to.  Iíve not played any tournaments, and started to play after completing college.
 Our local weather and public courts  donít help much.  My most memorable play opportunity was two summers ago in Waterville Valley NH with 18 clay courts.

Well, not all at once! LOL.  But you'd be surprised at how quickly those posts add up!  I was shocked when I realized on another board I post to that the number had actually rolled over because I passed 9999 posts...  :scared:

BTW I'm new here too  ;)

I guess around the majors newbies pop up,  eh?
