Yeah I had 5 donuts yesterday and I know I'm going to regret it on the court this week.  Run that cheesecake off.

they're supposed to be putting a cheesecake factor in our city's downtown area very soon. I've never been but I always hear such good things about the food. I can't wait to try it out.

Today, I didn't know we were gonna play b/c it kinda rained, but we went out. I wasn't dressed out so, of course, I had to play in my school clothes. I played against this really hard guy that i know I could beat if I was dressed out. I'm was down 3-5 but I break easier than I hold so I could have won ihs next service game. I really liked the way I was playing though. Very consistent with a lot of good shot producing. The control on my ncode is crazy, so many shots I thought were going out, dipped and hit the tape on the sidelines. I really liked my angles too. My serve, it was consistent, but it wasn't very agressive. That's pretty much what I think I need the most improvement on. I'd like to join a club or get a private coach, but i can't seem to get a hold of one...

Do they make you join to just take lessons?

Here is the good news you Flordia dude...  They has to be a ton of people who give lessons outdoor all year long.  If you do not have a coach right now I highly suggest you get one.  They will help you more than you know.  

Check out the Teaching Pro Services Forum here and see if there is anyone giving hourly lessons in your area.  Post that you are looking for someone as well.  Hopefully you can find one before summer and then train with them all summer.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I just played the worst f**king match of my life. I saved 5 match points but seriously, 2-6 to friggin beginner really pisses me off. His shots were so weird; it was a like a pusher mixed with an all-around player. I played so bad. terrible. But, I know I only pay good against tough opponents so it doesn't really discourage me that much. But still, I shouldn't have even given him games...

I played very strong yesterday (still not as good as I would have liked). I won 6-0, 6-2. I was serving at 5-1 in the second and then I just started thinking "I don't wanna beat him too bad"(which is a bad habit that I need to get rid of). Next thing u know, I was broken and at 5-2, he was picking up the pace. The last game was probably the longest game I've ever played. I wouldn't let him hold, and he wouldn't let me break. Eventually I won the game w/ his error.

But my favorite shot has to be a dropshot return TO a drop shot against me. It's fun to see my opponent get shocked.

I finally played today! My first match since May. I was terribly rusty during the match, but my strokes felt better than they were be4 my break. I won the match 3-6, 7-5, 6-1. I was returning at 4-5 in the second set and then I really stepped up my game. I only remember missing one first serve in the last set. I was pleased with my overall performance, but at the same time, I wasn't getting to a lot of shots that I usually got to. So I definitely need some conditioning be4 I start tournament play.

So again, I've had to cancel a USTA tournament for the 3rd consecutive week... The rain has prevented me from getting a proper practice session leading up to it... I would have just played the tournament anyways (my body handles extended brakes surprisingly well), but thought that I wanted to be able to walk the day after it. ha. Thank god it's florida where there are at least 2 tournaments every week... I can't wait for the clay one.

I think it's green. I think all florida courts are green... I actually think I would like clay... I could really do some damage w/ angles and sliding... do u have any tips for clay?

Hmm, well I'd say you have to be patient and expect to be playing a lot of shots.  Spins, especially top spin really helps, it really jumps off the court.  Don't be afraid to mix it up too, some slices and high balls aren't a bad idea.  You can get away with being defensive much more on clay then on hardcourts, but don't change your game too much.

i play clay often and  here are my tips ...stand a little farther from the baseline on difficult gets be patient you can get to the next one and finally ... finesse over power including on serve look for those angles
