looking to set up a group of players in the temecula/murrieta area 4.0 and up, men or women (i really hate the NTRP system so in cleartext.. solid players that are competitive, like to have fun and get a good workout, but don't like hit and giggle, clear as mud?)...singles or doubles....sound like you? I know you are out there. courts to be determined. thanks

Girls High School tennis practice just started this week and already we have a controversy. One of our top players has been told she can not play because her parents, who lost their jobs, do not have health insurance
. The school can not risk her getting hurt and not being covered due to budget constraints. This seems totally unfair to the girl and her parents, who are good people. What is the policy in other… Continue

I always get prematch jitters.. and when my coach sends out an email on challenge matches.. i get nervous and throws my day off and the carefree life that i have is now interrupted. I don't mind losing if I gave it all I had and even playing up to par... but when my mind blanks, i get stiff, anxiety takes over, and I lose.. it takes me days too cope and I'm thinking i'm putting so much emphasis on tennis that i probably need to spend more time in my other hobbies (guitar for example) and… Continue

DampAss contemplated the offer. On the one hand he knew that he was in good enough shape to play. But he really resented having to play for free. He didn’t see why Nike or some other corporation couldn’t fork over the money to make it worth his while. After all, everyone knows that you have to spend money to make money. And since he was the top bill, he figured that for one cool… Continue

I'm hoping to remind myself that it is just a game ... my ego must be really big which is probally why it's hard for me to believe that... It would be nice to have a women's ego since they dont' seem too hyped about scores and performances as men.. Seriously though I need to learn how to relax more.

So i have a challenge match tomorrow that i'm pretty nervous about despite it being a team member and not some unknown player. I think it stems from the fact it's a team member so you feel kind of like you have to play more safe and be respectful... but being a male, we have huge egos that get in the way and usually ends up being just a regular match. Anyhow, i'm bit nervous about that but also nervous about performance because i sometimes just go blank and sit like deer in a headlight.... and… Continue

Ongoing List of specific habits that has worked well for me personally (which will be added or subtracted throughtout my tennis journey) And although there are sooooo many different style of tennis players out there... usually if these key points for me are blended in.. i usually end up playing well and having fun!! My style of play is counterpunching so it's crucial for me to keep the ball in play and move around the court.
- Losing is painful but my attitude and how I deal with… Continue

So I found out about this site after asking around the tenniswarehouse forum about blogging my tennis sessions and someone directed me to this site. Hopefully I can constantly write down whatever is bothering me on the court and get some perspective or insights on random strangers..lol (at least im not picking up hitchikers). About month ago, I had first usta match and for some reason I couldn't sleep for days as I always get nervous before matches that "count" and have very hard time focusing… Continue

One of the pleasures of being a tennis fan is the constant introduction to new talent just as your favorites begin inevitably to decline.

This small hop altho seemingly insignificant is a critical part of your footwork and success on the court
This small hop just before your opponent strikes the ball in effect tells your brain how to move once the ball has been struck - it tunes your brain into the muscles to instruct them as to when to move and in which direction and how fast.
This is a great illustration of how the brain talks to your muscles and eyes and tells them what to do and when!
So, next… Continue

Our buddy Will Hamilton explains why he likes the BNP Paribas Open so much. As someone who is going to be there for the 5th year in a row, I concur. The first 2 years, I couldn't stay away from the practice courts. Now I mix those in with matches on the smaller stadia. It is insane how close you can get to the players in these two areas. If you look at some of my older pics, you'll see a practice session between Roddick and… Continue
