Last night playing at another indoor club in our area with Freebird was good stuff indeed! 2 or 3 of the others were better than me so it is always good to play tougher competition! I was generally happy with everything last night, save for being broke once. I think I only served 3 times all night though! We just barely beat JMarks and BW for the first set thing, then just lost to DT and SS by 1 break. I really enjoyed the practice drill that Bird showed me last night!
I was hoping to compete against Pete Mudre last night as the dude clearly has many different shots and great control of them which will keep you on your toes.
Yo Bird, do you feel better today or still a bug in the belly?
Almost forgot, I wanted to remember my drop shot volley: Bird hit a good serve that JMarks returned but not great, all I had to do was take a couple steps to my left and throw it down! It landed within a foot of the net with some nice back spin on it! It felt really good!
I think you'd really enjoy playing Mudre, especially in doubles. The guy puts some crazy spins on the ball, and has a great feel for the court. Also, interestingly, has the reputation of having a great overhead.
Something still not quite right in the belly, but much better than last night. At the end, the upset stomach wasn't really enough to affect my physical effort, but it definitely affected my concentration. Irritating - Donato's is now in the doghouse!
Didn't you have a super-sweet dropshot in my first service game against DT and SS? I think it was on ad-out as well, as I recall telling you "you'd damn well better not miss that one!". LOL!! For what it's worth, I thought that one was more spectacular than the one against JM - mostly because it's the one I remember
