So here is the scoop. So there is a Guy that Plays & Teaches Tennis AT sandy springs tennis center near my new job at concourse athletic club. My Tennis instruction lessons & Classes website for Marietta ga...
We both do work for another networking group similar to tennisopolis except its completely local. my Director at the CAC just finished playing a tournament. He trained and everything. the director kept talking about the tournament everyday at work gave me the itches to play one. ,I began thinking about how to accomplish that so " hey why don't I do an exhibition match against the other pro/local competition and kill 2 birds with one stone.
the Match was presented to the other pro and accepted.
So the Match is ON May 28th 7pm at Roswell Tennis center in Roswell area. I start training this Monday. I will hear later on this week where it will be played.
I have heard that the person doesn't think much of me and plans on beating my pants off. Well im not gay so I will just keep my pants on, win & leave it at that.

Oh yeah there is. one never judge a book by its cover. Although this mans personality has been over the top the few times I met him its true that he might have changed since then. 2. He had better had skills than I expected but still much weaker than a 5.0, it was like a 4.0 with really good soft touch. 3. I really wanted to hit and be challenged, I didnt want to win by simply out powering the person. Any young guy can do that to an older guy especially if they are not on that level. 4. I took the match for granted and didnt train- at all. ( i dont think losing 5 lbs is considered training. if it was then I had a good loss. * of weight * ) 5. I discovered again that matches hurt, I though that MY talent would be enough ubt after the match I loss my right arm. 6 Prepare your tennis equipment. 7. Finish points. And What I mean is I was so board that I stop thinking, and I just watch him run and hit instead of closing in & turning up the pressure. BEcause Everytime I closed in after an attack he missed, completly, even the Winning point was a miss hit winner for him. 7 I did started to feel better when I was playing with my woody & I was trying to motivate myself to win but with the lack of focus its possible I was cheated out of the second set, doesnt matter either way because I didnt know the score anyhow. BUt that's that, the exhibition is over Ive got second place, there was no trash talking, no betting, nothing on the line, truly a worthless match. INteresting thigs though are..... The we had the national anthem was sung by the Club owner, we had a Jet plane fly over, and a little person. The most interesting event I have ever had. ( the Jet was a model plane )
I did pick up three new clients, all of them new. My old clients/ players in the group enjoyed the match & I played tennis with a "little person" for the first time in my life and we rocked as a doubles team & I was even with me playing lefty till 1130pm at night. * my arm was dead from the match, Still hurting today. *
I will be putting up the video tonight. its only an hour of the match.
