"Yeah, I know..... unbelievable. I recently started running after finally having healed a bad case of shin splints. Was ready to go re: getting back into tennis. Gained a little weight so I guess that sort of leads to a variety of…"
"OMG! Take it easy...I hope it is nothing too major. What ever it is, you should lay off of it for a while. I can't make it tomorrow, but hopefully Tuesday of next week. Take care, and rest that ankle! "

Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
I have been playing serious tennis for the past 10 years. Started out play. on womens interclub doubles. Past several years played lots of doubles tournaments in Central Valley. Last few years played mixed USTA doubles 7.0 won all matches as a 3.0, Last year went to over 50 team sectionals, winning all my matches but the team lost. After that I am now rated as a 4.0 but in actuality am more of a strong 3.5 player. My male 4.0 partner pretty much won most of our matches so now rated much too high. I am a solid 3.5... have to contest my 4.0 should I ever play USTA again. I really just want to play strong recreational doubles tennis - prefer mixed, but womens is good too.
Other than that, I work in a law firm & am a classical violinist in my spare time.
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
Djokovic, Federer & Nadal are my most favorite to watch, and enjoy Ana whatt's her name, also from Serbia, although she's obviously slipped a bit.
My tennis skill (please check your NTRP if you know it):
Not bad, NTRP 4.0, If tennis is on TV - I am watching
On the court, I am a:
rightie, whaler, doubles partner, one-hander, all courter, gracious loser
Hey, let's get some mixed dubbs in sometime! I live in San Ramon. I'm also 4.0. I'm currently ranked #1 in Northern Ca. I'm on 3 USTA leagues. My mixed 70 team out of Laney just lost at Sectionals at Stanford this past weekend. I'm also on Club Sports 4.0 and Laney 4.0 team. I play #1 singles for both teams. I think we'd be an awesome team! I usually play at Dougherty High in San Ramon. We should go to the TVTA meet up next Tuesday. :)
