"Hi Max -- I can do Thursday night after 7:45 or so -- does that work for you? Also where do you guys play? (I myself play at the Turk/Laguna courts or nearby, though I'd be willing to drive elsewhere too) Also sending friend request so we can…"

"Thanks for responding Max. Unfortunately I can't play today -- maybe the next weekend (either day)? I may be able to play during a weekday too -- will let you know. Thanks."

"Hi Max -- don't know if you're still looking... but I'd be really interested... I am a predominately singles player, somewhere between 3.5 and 4.0 -- pretty close to 4.0 on a windless day I think! Weekends should work for me, with…"

Profile Information

I am a:
Casual Player
Neighborhood or other helpful location info:
San Francisco, CA
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:
During the week, Andrew Spinas Park in Redwood City -- but I'm fine playing anywhere between Redwood City and SF really. Weekends -- probably the Dolores Park courts in the Mission area in SF, but I am yet to play there.
Relationship status:
Single, Who Wants To 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

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.
