And then there were 90

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…

87 day

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…

New & trained tennis player looking to hit.

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…

String your racket more often for better performance.

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…

US Wins Davis Cup Match...Do You Care?


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…

How to go from GOOD to GREAT… in any sport. by JACK in

There is a particular body motion in almost every sport or physical activity that a gifted athlete performs intuitively. They know it by ‘feel’, or as being ‘in the zone’. People call them a ‘natural athlete’. But this specific body motion goes completely unseen by those of us watching. Even many coaches, trainers, and instructors can’t identify it.

But the athletes’ entire body is engaged in the most efficient, fluid, and seamless flow of motion, resulting in what appears to be… Continue
