I have a clinic with kids from 7-8:30.  See you there.

Wifey and I played a couple from our church tonight, very nice couple, I like them a lot.  We had good fun.  I took it easy except on serves to him.  I think he liked the challenge.  We lost 3 games total, probably played 16-20 games total.

Wifey did well as usual.  She is slowly getting better which is great to see.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Calf is still hurting from Friday night.  I thought I was past the calf injury since it did not bother me the last 5 times I played.  I think it's time to schedule 3-4 weeks off and rest up to see if I can beat this thing.  The best I have given it so far is a week and a half and that is not cutting it.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Well, I gave it 9 days.  USTA team is shy players so I am playing tomorrow.  Excited to play, I just hope the calf continues to hold up.  It is not as bad as it was a week ago, but I am not giving it proper time to heal.  We will see.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I'm sure the rehab you did combined with a right proper pre-match warmup (try chasing the kids in the snow!) you'll be all set. :)

Carrying my dead weight for 2 hrs aint gonna help it much. :)

Played tonight with ML, I have only played with him once in the past but never USTA.  I have played against him though a handful of times.  We tore it up pretty good although our opponents where not the toughest out there.  We took it 6-3, 6-2.  They did not pressure our service games, never poached on our returns and just had no real weapons to hurt us.  We had some great points but we ended up winning the majority.  :)

Played today with JM against Jamesdster and a high school player.  Jamesdster is having some shoulder issues so he was not serving but 1/3 of his regular second serve speed.  He threw in some underhand serves too, but he was holding because the rest of his game was solid.  We ended up winning 7-6 (4), 6-3.

Played Sunday with OSU in USTA.  We played Vern & MikeM.  Tough match, we lost 6-7 (1), 6-7 (5).  OSU struggled at times which is odd for him, he is usually the most consistent with the level of game he brings to the court.  Too many late nights watching the AO.  :)

Played last night with VIC against OSU and MC.  MC had a really rough night and VIC and I played very well.  We own it 6-3, 6-4.  I volleyed extremely well, it felt great.  The ball was looking like a beach ball.  My serve seems to have lost some pep over the last few weeks.  I do not think I am coming out of my knee bend as aggressively.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

OSU and I played dubs last night against the new 4.5 team in the league.  They just threw (2) 4.0 players at us and we took care of business.  We took it a little too casual at first but buckled down after almost being down 1-4 in the first set.  At 1-3 we reeled off 11 of of the next 12 games for a 6-3, 6-1 win.  I was pretty tired and sore from the day before so I was not on fire.  Not tested either though.

The day before I had to play a weak 4.5 player and a solid 4.0 player in a league.  My partner is probably on average a 3.5 player who played extremely bad, he was 3.0 at best.  My opponents went to his off of all of my serves, all my returns, etc.  It was pretty embarrassing for my opponents if you ask me.  I do not think they needed to hit the ball at my opponent for every shot to win, but they did anyways.  Then after our 2 & 2 beat down we played a 3rd set for fun and they continued to do it.  It was worse that mixed dubs.  I will not throw down any names in here (no one we know) but it was bad.  They played smart by going to the weaker player but it was painfully dumb tennis.  If they would have hit all those shots to a better player like that we would have won 0 & 0.  Massive loss of respect for my opponents that day.  Mainly the 4.5 player as the 4.0 was just in high school and just did what the 4.5 player told him to do.

some people are more concerned with winning than playing a fun tennis match... so dumb.
