Thats some good stuff. They are playing pretty fast too. I would have guessed that the game would have been much slower at that time, but it doesnt seem that way. I guess I was wrong.

No they played at a much faster pace back then. It's funny. There were a couple players who took a lot of time between points. So they instituted a time limit, and instead of speeding up the slowpokes it had the opposite effect. It slowed down the speedier players.

Is a tree as a rocking horse
An ambition fulfilled
And is the sawdust jealous?
I worry about these things .

cool stuff. the longest point was probably 5 shots - the serve, the return, a volley, a return and a volley winner. isn't that a little predictable in the end?
