Looks like. I am recovered from my back problem although I still do many core workouts to keep extra fit. Playing again with no pain. Life is good again. I could not imagine never hitting a tennis ball again. I do prefer clay though as it is less demanding on your back and body overall. Or is it? Since the points last longer, less winners you are hitting more balls. So, you start getting tennis elbow or tendinitis there.Ugghhh. Just keep lifting some weights and exercise to keep playing.…Continue

Over the weekend, we had the McKinney Tennis Center's One Year Anniversary. It was a lot of fun. A bounce-house for the kids, face-painting, games, free food, live-music, raffles, etc. Lots of fun. The only bad thing was the rain. Not cool. I stuck around for the Fast-Serve competition. I was in the finalists with a 93 mph serve. Not bad for wet-flat balls! I bet I could have done better, but it was cold and nasty outside and we didn't…Continue

In case you don't know, there are two websites (that I'm aware of, there may be more), where you can watch almost all of the big tournaments online for free. However, there is a catch. You will get a lot of annoying popups telling you that you have to download software, or that you are missing a plugin, etc. YOU DON'T! JUST CLOSE THEM! These popups typically cover the screen and the media player controls. Look for the tiny "x" somewhere on the popup and close it. Sometimes you have to…Continue

The more I teach tennis the more I realize how important it is to be patient and flexible with your students. Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to observe thousand of different tennis players and focus on how they learn tennis and try to understand why they behave and choose to do what they do on the Tennis court…
It still amazes me how variably different the…Continue

World number three Andy Murray returns to match play this weekend at Indian Wells. He could take over the number two spot in the ATP rankings by reaching the finals. But there’s a catch. This changing of the guard can only take place if world #2 Roger Federer loses before the semis. Wonder what the odds of that happening are?
At any rate, to help things along, third seeded Murray has a first round bye and will play either Evgeny Donskoy or Tatsuma Ito on Saturday or Sunday. On…Continue

Okay, well...I'm going to start out by saying I really don't care if anyone reads this blog. This is more for my own personal development as a competitive tennis player. I've tried blogs in the past and I got more caught up in the promotion and the desire to have people read and comment on it than actually caring about what I post.
Anyways, I'm Andy. I'm 32. I'm a father of 2 and married. I'm a Systems Admin for a large company in Richardson, TX. I have a real hard time trying…Continue
