A so-so hit with DMast yesterday. It seemed like nothing got accomplished thanks to my rally killing buddy that hit Canadien Dubs with us. We did do some mixed dubs with a couple of old ladies that was kinda fun but it really slowed the game down as D and I played cooperatively and the ladies made some o.k. shots. The final rally time of about 15 min. with D was pretty crappy, by then I was in full-body ache from so much tennis lately. Legs were still tight, knees were aching, just an overall mess.
10 hours of sleep last night seemed to do the trick. Had a 2.5 hour practice session with "The Pupil" that went extremely well. Finally found some rhythem on my groundstrokes and worked hard to get a full shoulder turn on the BH and then take smaller steps to position for the hit. Hit 30-40 great shots that were under control, excellent pace with minimum effort, there is hope!
Took some serves after my partner left. Still searching for that effortless motion I had a few months ago....
It was good to just to hit a couple baskets of balls and experiment a bit on the serve. Only 3 in the net out of 100 as I worked on hitting up & out. Thanks Pacer!
tho' I did smack myself in the knee again!!!
I had to laugh, because before you mentioned that I had never done it and now I've done it twice in less than a week!!!
I also experimented with a Fischer racquet strung with Live Wire. Holy Poop on A Stick, talk about power! I'd forgotten what a sacrifice I made in the pace dept. when I switched to the PS 85's.
