Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
This info is out of date! I got hitched & moved to NYC. Now have 0 hitting partners/friends except my wife who doesn't dig it.
I casually play for enjoyment only, but enjoy competitive spirits. I thought I would give this a shot since I've accumulated a total of 2 hitting partners in 2 years in LA. I work full-time so I can only play at night & weekends.
I used to play a lot ~ 3.5-4.0. Then I moved to LA and started my career. Now my lungs feel like they might be the size of a couple pears.
My game: serve is weak; footwork is sluggish; backhand is inconsistent; forehand is top-spinny ...
(had to keep the parrellism) ;) But seriously, I have some trouble toning down the top-spin on my forehand so I can understand if that can be annoying to some players.
The "I'm a:" section reminded me of my old days as a NCAA team manager (does not equate to skill) and as a racquet stringer. I no longer keep my machine in LA, so I can't help there. But I'd be happy to share my opinion about strings, racquets and equipment.
I AM NOT HERE TO DATE. Seems like that's a common theme here. Hitting partners & friends welcome though.
My tennis skill (please check your NTRP if you know it):
Tim, I live on the Westside close to the Cheviot Hills courts and I am looking for other tennis players. I play at level 3.5. I work regular business hours, so evenings or early mornings are best for me. Hope to hear from you soon.
