I guess Scottie's off the hook now huh?   :))



He is never off the hook!   I am sure he is the reason for all my ailments!   :)~

Good luck on the court is nice to have, but it's usually extraneous when playing against Baker.

Some answers are starting to roll in from all my tests.  Apparently I have a condition called 'atrial fibrillation and atrial flutters'.  So I have to have a procedure done on 5/25 called an electrophysiology study (EP Study).  As of 5/25 it looks like I will finally know everything that's wrong and then I can start treatment (medicine or maybe a procedure called an ablation which could be done during the EP Study). An ablation basically zaps dead tissue in the heart and causes it to resume regular rhythms instead of all this irregualr crap that's going on.

This is really embarrassing considering all the crap you guys have been giving me about "being" a doctor and all, but my best friend's son had an ablation done several years ago (when he was in his early 20s) and has done great. His situation, if I remember correctly, was just a little bit different from yours but the procedure was the same.

Oh, yeah, and my dad (who, you will remember, is left-handed  ..-) ) has developed, in his later years, atrial fibrillation as have all of his seven living brothers and sisters. It appears it can be a genetic thing, also. You seriously might want to consider the ablation if it's showing up now.

It's great hearing from you!  Since your dad and I both have this condition, maybe it's a "southpaw" affliction.  18 days from now, when that rod is poking around in my heart ( CAN NOT WAIT), if they recommend this ablation procedure, I will certainly give the go ahead.  This sitting on the couch and feeling skipped heart beats is very nerve racking.

Well, I played singles Monday night and it was like old times.  FINALLY!!!!!   :uh:   I had MY racket, it was strung correct (thanks Scott for the lesson), and the planets were aligned.  I actually looked like I knew how to play the game of tennis once again.  I was returning well, serving well, smoking the forehand, and even the backhand was going well.  Hsven't played that well in a long long time!  I was close to the “zone”.  I knew this was going too well so what happened with 5 minutes left?  I was getting in position to return as my opponent wound up to smack his 110 mph serve at me, and and in the process of settling into a return mode (you know the drill, knees slightly bent, on balls of feet….) the muscles in my lower back just spasmed out of no where.  To make a long story short, I missed work yesterday and just ate Tylenols and layed on the floor.  On a good note, as far as my back episodes go, this one is minor.  I think I should only miss a few days (as opposed to weeks).  I probably still lack the skills to play the game of doubles, but my singles game is …pardon the pun….back.

Gatewood...not sure if you know him....he hits the ball a ton....makes a lot of errors but really goes for it.  It was nice to be able to handle the pace because when I am not in "tourney form" I have problems with pace.  But we had some serious ralleys from the baseline, both of just just hitting out and keeping it in play pretty much.

Did my sub hold me up or drop me down?  I could really care less except it will affect if I get to play on top court with you next week or not and that I care about.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

You guys must have demoralized him.  Lester beat him, but then again Lester beat me last week.  But now the Dino-3 is cooking  :uh:

the club Andre Agassi's opponent was a no show tonight so I went down and played him.  We took turns serving 10 points at a time and it was very close but I'd probably have to give him a slight edge maybe.  The scoring went something like 7-3 him on his serve and 7-3 me on mine.  Ditto round 2.  Round 3 was maybe 7-3 him on his serve and maybe 6-4 me on mine.  Plus, the dude hooked me in a PRACTICE session!!!!!  On one of his serves to my backhand (ad ct), I inside-outed it cross court and it appeared to hit the line and he said wide.  I gave it a long look then let it go.  He's a good guy and probably just made an honest mistake.
