Ok in the ALTA Mens open AA Singles Tounament 2010 in Atlanta GA. My Quarter finals Round opponent Quit and defaulted, and My Semi-Finals Match round match was beating me 0-3 then I came back 5-3, I could not pull off the straight 6 games and he held serve. I finished him off 6-4, first set. he goes sits down take a drink of water and says I had enough. ( I Made him QUIT.....HELL YEAH!!!!!)

The problem is now, I hearing every excuse in the book, he had a tuff round before, his leg gave out...BLABLABLA. BTW he is also another teaching professional here in GA. Don't take lessons from him....

Another great excuse I heard was back in NYC.

I was playing at the US-Open Tennis Courts its the 3rd Round of the Mens Open Nationals around Sept/December. I am playing the Head Pro or assistant head pro of the USTA's Junior development program at the US-open Stadium Courts. I was still teaching at Saw Mill Club in MT. Kisco. I wanted to go there and destroy my opponent because his boss the Director/headpro was one of my former coaches when I was younger....and I ( hated too strong more disliked)hated him. He was arrogant and treated me with no respect at all. the Director/head pro is also the main reason I lost my back hand for 7 years straight after Tom Blake( james blakes dad) fixed it. So i was on a mission to destroy his second in command, represent my club and defend my top player & coach status for the Bronx.

 I Beat my opponent the first set 6-0 then I was up 5-0 the second set, He then comes out of no where with four hard serves to be down 1-5 the second set.( SFX*singing* ^too late_ ) on my serve which was as consistent as ever allowed me to coast through easy for the match. so i gave him a bagel and a french fry.

(SFX***drum roll***)

his excuse is...............

"the only reason why he won( meaning CoachV) was because he hit the ball hard." that's what he said to his students or girl friend on the side. how sad. hitting hard Is not the reason. Its because I hit the ball hard and didnt miss a single shot. I made 2 or 3 Unforced Errors including, 1 or 2 Double faults, and any points he won he had to work double for it. Plain and simple. I was the better player.( * i am thinking this, no one heard say this*)

Now MY CoachV Excuse of choice IS......
I didn't train enough or practice.... its true that's it.  I use that one all the time.

Also I dont practice every aspect of my game. I lost in the finals of the AA Alta singles because I could not volley. and that has not happened since 1995. to read more about the epic final join the CoachV Top Rank Tennis group and Become an online student.

Well, my serve is off because of the ________. Insert whichever is more appropriate: sun, wind
answer: *American* foot ball throw - must be perfect spiral.
Blister on my hand. hahaha, I was just filling in the blank. The other day I was playing with this guy who had a nasty blister that popped in the beginning of the second set. His game sure did go downhill after blood was soon seeping out of his blister. It was pretty apparent that it was affecting his serve.
I don't have any excuses, other than it was all my fault.
What Would yoda say hmm... short sighted you are or mind clouded by the dark side you is.
to me this statement sounds like you were not fighting. no intensity.( i suprized my self bi spellin intensity write.)
CoachV Tip: Your excuse is only defined by your opponents reasons.

The world of tournament play between coaches. Interesting how much emotion is invested. Well, victory is a good thing if it is handled well. It's okay to gloat and brag, but not right then and there. Maybe here on Tennisopolis, it's okay. ;)

Yes, not training enough is the only reason. You must be prepared for anything, right?

Not necessarily in the case of excessive double faults.

I hope that blister is from tennis.

Stop you from winning? So you're an aggressive player from what it sounds. Have you ever met your match in a defensive player then?
