Lugburz's Journal...
« on: June 27, 2008, 08:24:29 PM »
OK,Considering that it's been a while since I joined this forum,I guess that I could write something interesting down from my tennis experience..

First of all I play tennis for fun and joy,so nothing serious then..
At first I was just enjoying watching tennis since Henman and Haas showed up...Then I started to watch it more carefully and seriously..I like players who uses one handed backhand so I think that this two guys came up from that..That I owe to my father who knows everything about tennis from early 70'up 'till now..He is one of those all-time tennis fans..But he doesn't like Nadal or that sort of players  :))  ..Just kidding but that's the true ;-()  ..
So anyway I usually played tennis with my friends and I did it well,mostly being victorious...
And I could beat everyone except one ''thing'' that I couldn't,and that would be my father who s 28 years older than me,can you imagine that?!
HELL OF A DAY
And that was just perfect day for me:No sun,no rain,no wind...just perfect day for tennis match,,So,I challenged my father for anything he is being doing to me  :mad1:  ..As always I started pretty bad,losing an early break..and of course I lost that set..We always play 5set match,sometimes I take one,sometimes I take 2 but I haven't beat him ever since that day..That was my best tennis that I ever played(like a pro)..I will always remember that match..In first set I lost very easily 2-6,but I won the second one hardly with 7-5 win..He gained the lead taken me one break and he took 4-6 in 3rd..4th was pretty easy for me 6-3,(and that was my biggest win in some set,but not the biggest quality..So I took the victory in astonished 5th set with 11-9 win...That was just amazing...
The other people on the court could not believe that I really won it...I was really on-fire that day! But that was the only time..We played again after that but I lost it...And I didn't care...We'll play again,and I will take victory eventually..
Only that matters was that day and that day alone!   ..

Dang, 5 sets is a ton of tennis let alone snagging the 5th set 11-9.  Congrats on a good win!

Keep us up to date on your tennis.  :)

You sound like a great tennis player, if you played like a pro, then your father must be Pete Sampras or something!!

3-4 hours means you are probably in good shape.  That is most excellent.  I played with Freebird yesterday for 2 hours and I was beat.  We run each other like crazy, but I need to snap back into shape.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

3-4 hours of tennis will help even that battlefield though! 

I am not far from out of shape.  I could shed 10 pounds and get out a little more and I would be doing far better.  Problem is all I do is play doubles these days and that exercise is crap.  My eating is crap too.  About 3 weeks ago I started hitting the weights again.  I have to do it in a limited amount because of my right shoulder, it seems to ache is I do too much. 

Either way, here's to both of us trying to get into shape!!!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

That is the great thing about an even match-up.   My buddy and I used to have an awesome even level of play so we would go back and forth all the time.  Hail, we even played some best-of 5 setters back in the day!

I haven't had that kind of situation in at least 10 years.

There are quite a few of us round here that are very near each other in level of play.......though our strengths and weaknesses are quite different......and our abilities at singles and dubs.

Don't worry Lugburz, once you pass him and start beating him on a regular basis, there will be no looking back!  Youth is on your side. 

I play my father too and he used to kill me when we started.  Now he has trouble with me and I usually win, which makes me feel bad for him because his knees are not what they used to be.  He was quite a player back in the day.  All I can say is enjoy that you get to play with your dad, because most people never get to experience that...

As for those 5 setters, that is hard-core tennis junkie behavior.  I like it...
Lots of people make passes at me, I'm a tennis player!
