Where are you? Haven't seen you on the site lately. Hope all is well. The Cincinnati clinic with Oscar didn't materialize because of some court issues with the prospective host. Would you be able to come to Orlando, Florida for either of our 2-week camps? We'd love to see you there, back on the forums, etc. Let us know what's going on with you and your tennis scene! Lucy
Hi Rock and thanks for your note. I am so glad you have found Oscar's method helpful to your tennis game! I hear the same story over and over again. I love your photos! One question, though. How does that one guy hit a tennis ball with that big fish? You seem to be part of a very dedicated tennis community. I hope all those players are utilizing Oscar's techniques to up their games as well! Oscar and I would love to come to your club to conduct a seminar with you and all your tennis mates. If you are interested please contact me via my website at www.tennisteacher.org and please keep participating in my tennis group here on Tennisopolis.
Just opened your message from weeks ago regarding Gourmet Open event. I hope to see you tonight at Eastern for the event. Thanks for the suggestion of getting with Angie, however, I happened upon another partner in the interim.
