There is a reason they created AARP for players like derek-56

Allays Aging Retarded Players

10 things Derek never had to deal with before with CoachV as a kid.

10. a Backhand

Playing derek as a kid was frustrating, because of bad coaching i lost my backhand for 5 year stright

9. Returns

Without a backhand to return balls, derek with 1 lucky hard serve to the backhand received a free point

8. Pushing game

As a kid i always went for the kill, I was not able to wait for a better ball

7. Mental toughness

I could not focus, with the environment i lived in. Tennis was more of an escape of my environment.

6 Service Game

I didnt really make any progress on my serve game until 2006

7. Defense

As a kid I didnt know how to  control points, like i do now.

6. offense

My game is so dynamic now! that I can at will change the rhythm of a point instantly

5 Touch

My drop shots and placement have always been great! but now im 35, my touch is my biggest destroyer of good players, like agassi in 2005


derek has been using my technique for only 2 to three years, but I have over 10 years experience with it.

3 Speed

With my Method of training and coaching, i have simplified every shot making my efforts on court easy

2 Court coverage

How i cover the court will give derek very little room to get by me or even hit good attacking shots.

1 Derek is Effen old, he aint 40 anymore! and IM not some poor kid.

Derek is about to get hit with some humble PIE in OCT2012

Derek is an Arse Hole song created back in 1996....I will put up an mp3!

Friday to SAturday Night midnight Derek D VS CoachV in Chat room Trash talking

Thanks for the compliment Mark.  I also like Alex Daniels comments.  CoachV isn't going to get away with false comments since the truth police are in town now!

I've played 5 hours of tennis with the Wristwidget on.  It seems to be working at alleviating the ECU (Extensor Carpal Ulnaris) pain in my left wrist which occurs when I hit my 2 handed backhand.  I expect to be playing good tennis within 2 weeks.  I expect to be playing excellent tennis by August.  CoachV is in trouble.

Mark, CoachV would probably be a 5.0.  I say probably because I have not seen him play much since he moved to Atlanta 4 years ago.  In his prime (25) he was a 5.5.  One of his major problems that held him back from getting to 6.0, and above, was that he never played enough points when he practiced.  He would train for a tournament by hitting up the middle for 2 hours.  By doing that as opposed to playing points at least 50% of the time, he suffered the following:   A) not practicing serving   B) not practicing the return of serve   C) not practicing strategy   D) not practicing transitioning from backcourt to net (especially grip changes)   and most importantly   E) not practicing footwork.

Is that true, Coach V? The way Derek is spelling it out, sounds a little plausible. But I'm gonna wait for your answer.

Its not 100% true. I really didn't train properly for tournaments because I also didn't know how. I didn't have a game either. So what exactly would I be practicing?... without a backhand.... which was my only weapon. So back then, with no real forehand, backhand, serve. Just hitting and working on shot making was my game.

Now that I have a complete set of shots, tactics, & games options.

Back then Derek considered me a 5.5 5.0 ish? I was really a 4.0 or 3.5 now I'm 70000000.0 . Derek doesn't know what's coming.

The sad fact is the only reason I'm gonna win is because Derek is old. efffen old

Derek is making the same mistake as Lorenzo assuming that I have not grown.

So when was the last year you guys actually played???

1999 2001 somewhere around there. but we also played last year, I used a wooden racquet and lost. like 6-3 or 6-2,

but i was only allowed to hit to 1 side of the court and only to his forehand.
