Yup, it happened. We got 90 games in on Sunday. My legs still feel it, but I'm starting to recover rather painlessly, which is nice.
The score doesn't truly matter. I lost 77-13 this time. It's to be expected. A 4.0/4.5 player with insane touch and great angles will mop the court with me regularly(a low 3.5 learning how to construct a real game), but since I lost 78-9 last time, I gave up one less game and scored four more than last time, so I can put that in my accomplishment…Continue
This majestic creature lives near the Dutch Fork Tennis Center, Irmo, SC. And actually, he (or she) spends alot of it's time hunting in my backyard, where I took this picture. Obviously, The animal shows no fear when approached by humans, for it allowed me to get to within a few feet from it as I snapped the photo.…Continue

Any body 4.0 or 4.5 want to hit on thursday-saturday in Livermore area?
Sunday February 26th at 2 PM, I am going to set another personal record with my friend Christoph Vogt. We are going to play 90 games in one day. We do things like this to test our will, our stamina, and how crazy we are. At 33 and 45 years old, we're supposed to be over these crazy ideas. But in our case, we're just beginning.
But before I blog about that match, I'll bring up our first trip into insanity. 87 games.
Here's a little backstory. I'm pretty much a…Continue
Below is a controversial letter from Wayne Bryan, the father of the number one ranked doubles team, Mike and Bob Bryan. Johan Kriek posted the letter and this short introduction on his facebook page. We are unsure how he had access to it:

Hi, I am James.
I just finished tennis lessons for about 2 months with a coach. I bought a new racket.
I am looking for tennis players in my area to hit with during evening or weekends. I just got back into tennis from a young age. I would say that I was inspired by the Rafa Nadal. My family is from span. :)
I live in west palm beach, FL near the water front off of 45th and flager dr.
Hope to hear from some tennis players that want to hit…Continue

A quick note regarding racket stringing and the frequency of which you should be restringing. While searching through various websites and blogs today I ran across a Prince Tennis blog titled "PrinceNextblog" and I was reminded about the phrase "string as often per year as you play in a week". I never really spent much time analyzing this statement but found myself replaying the phrase…Continue

Glad to have a chance to see Steve Johnson, and bring my Super Slow Motion Camera to see the pros up close and slow... Its a great teaching tool. Then to show clips to my students compared to what they do.

Watching the Davis Cup this weekend was fun and it was great to see the US beat Switzerland. John Isner had the biggest win of his career and beat the legendary Roger Federer 4-6, 6-3, 7-6,6-2.
Marty Fish came up big coming back from being down 2 sets to 1 against Stanislas Wawrinka winning 6-2, 4-6, 4-6, 6-1, 9-7. This no doubt will help Fish get…Continue

At www.TennisRace2Win.net We also offer the chance to use the CROSSOVER system which basically allows players of a younger age to challenge older players. Please note that this is a great motivational tool but not accepted in National Ratings scoring systems until yellow ball levels are applied.
This is good for mini tennis upwards
