Actually, he probably has the best serve in our club.  It is raw nasty!!!

Thanks but lately not even close.  All of my nagging little injuries are rocking me.....neck, back, knee, etc.  Alone or together, they don't stop me from playing, just very nagging and annoying.  Right now I'd say you, Jeffro, and MC hit the hardest serve there.  Not counting a couple of the juniors. 
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

Me, you must be smoking crack!  Although, you should have seen it Wed night.  Shoulder well rested, been lifting, etc.  Without drawing on the pc so much my shoulder feels far stronger.  Do you remember the first time you and I played?  I couldn't hit a hard serve because the shoulder was so dead.  Well, it was fresh Wed and I was hitting serves 10 mph faster than normal.  At least it felt and SOUNDED that way!  I hit some that had a mega echo, I felt that a man!  :)
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I think I grunt a fair amount but it is quite taxing moving this much heft around the court as quickly as I can.   :rofl_2:   I kind of agree with SeVen about grunting making matches more intense but some players clearly go overboard!   Especially when sometimes they are not grunting and sometimes they are busting ear-drums!

Instructional tennis?

Why the shucks is this over hear? This is a debate, just like any tennis debate. It belongs on the main forum.

I only grunt during 2 activities.  Tennis is not one of them. :tounge-smile:

I don't pay attention but I cannot remember your grunting, you must not be that loud.  If I slam a serve or a big overhead I will let out a grunt, or a fart...  Never know which one is coming.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

He doesn't grunt, but he does expell air on the loud side.
