gotta go w/ the 70s.  Since I started playing in the early 70s I was really into watching all the televised tennis I could get.  I used to love watching Vilas, Borg, Connors, Mac, Laver, Newcomb, Smith, Geuralitas, and Tanner.  I also enjoyed watching the ping pong matches between Harold Solomon and Eddie Dibbs.  Those little dudes could go all day on clay without making an unforced error.

As for Tanner's serve, I think it was the most dominant serve of all time.  Considering the racket he used, it was unbelievable. I bet he could've hit in the 160s with today's racket.  Whatever the record is that Roddick hit, add 5-7 mph more for what Roscoe would've hit.  Another big server in those days was S.African Kevin Curren who absolutely blew away Connors and I think it was McEnroe in back-to-back matches at W on his way to losing the finals to Borg.


So could you!   ..-)  :)~


ahhhhh man, that is cruel.  Ya always have to start picking on my stick don't ya??   :-o


It is just to fun for me to pass on a rip on the Dino-stick!   Especially, when I can mask it with a compliment of your serving skillz!   :)


I must admit that was quite witty (very unlike you).  :whistle:
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg
