Alternative Income Idea: Stringing Racquets

Do you want to make a little side cash while you are watching TV? The Passive Dad blog posted this great article about stringing rackets for dough.

If you play tennis weekly or enjoy hitting hard top spin shots, you have probably had to have your rackets restrung several times. Tired of paying a club or someone else for a tennis restring?… Continue

All Good (and Bad) Things Must Come to an End (From the Sublime to the Ridiculous, Part 3)

So this is the final chapter of the Tennis Talk, Anyone? year in review. Gee, I'm getting all misty-eyed with this reminiscing! This one won't be as long as the others because all my picks were so awesome (yeah, right!).

Anyway, on to the last part of the trilogy:


The Good and the Bad

nadal v fed

Ive watched the final of nadal v fed at wimbledon 20 times now infact im doing it at the mo. Ive always believed that fed lost it in the first couple of sets. I think my love for feds game has biassed me towards the brute strength of nedals. Watching again i still cant love nedal but his forehand is exceptional if it was feds id be laughing all the way.

There is another blog 'i hate nadal' but what i am asking is does his brute strength and undoubted top spin forehand mask his greatness or… Continue

"Dude, what were you thinking?"

That being said, let me kick off the May to August review:

Do all pro's go through this???

keep up to date at

11 December

saw the guys go through arguably the toughest day of their training block so far. In common with the other nasty sessions, it started on the track at Tropical Park.

For the second time this block, they hammered out ten 200 metre sprints, only this time they had less time to complete them, and less time to recover in…

From the Sublime to the Ridiculous (A Different Type of Year in Review, Part 1)

I was thinking of writing a "Year in Review"-type post, but after reading so many others out there that have everything wrapped up in great, concise packages, I held back. However, I can't just let the past season go, so I'm going to do something a little different.

One of my favorite things to do in life and on my blog, Tennis Talk, Anyone?, is to look at the draw of a tournament and make predictions on how things are going to shake… Continue

Maria Sharapova and coach stalked

This is a story that is equally bizarre and frightening.

A man has been charged with stalking former Wisconsin coach Barry Alvarez and tennis superstar Maria Sharapova.

Leonard Taylor Jr., played defensive back for the Badgers from 1995-1998 but it is unclear the connection between his former coach and Sharapova.

Taylor, who allegedly threatened to kill Alvarez, has been charged with one felony stalking count and one misdemeanor count of telephone harassment.… Continue
