TGIBF Tennis this evening?

Thank God It's Black Friday tennis this evening, anyone? The only black friday you get to play tennis for the next year, so gotta make it count I am a 3.5ish player, looking to hit for about 1.5 hours. Ideally want to start before 6 PM. Can play anywhere between Palo Alto and Santa Clara.Come on, let's do justice to the ex-turkeys! See More

Profile Information

I am a:
Casual Player
Neighborhood or other helpful location info:
Bangalore, India
Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
I fell in love with Tennis when I watched Becker win Wimbledon as a 17 year old kid.

As for my own tennis career: I'm primarily looking to play long rally sessions or sets -- to work on making my groundstrokes more consistent, especially with topspin. I love to volley whenever possible as well, though there's some scope for improvement in my baseline-to-net transition :)

I think my upwardly mobile rating is currently somewhere north of 3.5. Need matches with players with solid ratings to confirm this I guess :) And I'm guessing I need only about 9,800 hours of solid practice before I crack the top 5 in the ATP :-)
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
Federer, Becker, Sampras, Henin
My tennis skill (please check your NTRP if you know it):
NTRP 3.5
On the court, I am a:
rightie, chip-n-charger, singles player, serve-n-volleyer, one-hander
My favorite local courts:
Don't know yet -- let me know!

Hi Vivek,

I am definitely up for the weekend. How early during the week can you play?

I can usually play any day, in the mornings or afternoons. I work a lot of evenings, but then there aren't that many courts with lights . . . e-me at bobolonius at hot mail dot com

Sure, 7 sounds good. I"ll be there.

sorry but I already made plans tonight. Let's try again.

I think this Sat some of the regular players in the group are going to Carmel to play on clay courts, so I wasn't sure who was actually showing up. You should check with Chris or Semisi about it. Are you definitely going? I've been travelling a lot and wasn't sure how tired I'd be on Sat. I'll let you know what I decide on Friday.

Hey, I'm out of town until Weds afternoon. Maybe this weekend?

Sure, where would you like to meet?
