It’s fair to point to Djokovic’s struggles in 2012—he lost in the semifinals at Wimbledon, he failed to… Continue

Conventional wisdom has often suggested that Andy Murray’s game doesn’t translate well enough to best-of-five matches for him to win a Slam.
Indeed, Murray has won eight best-of-three Masters 1000 events with draws just as difficult as he faces at Slams, but has won just one paltry set in his four Grand Slam finals.
But at the…

I was out practicing with a friend who plays 4.5 and open tournaments and leagues. I hadn't seen him in 8 months, and he had told me he had changed his forehand drastically. Originally, he had a Berasetegui type Extreme Western forehand grip, which would produced gobs of spin, but would not… Continue

Hi Tennis community,
I've been playing and involved with tennis for over 3 decades. I create designs for tee shirts, wall placards or wallpapers for your cellphones. Some are tennis related, some are on contemporary topics, clever sayings, funny, racy and even religious. I am prompt, reliable and reasonably priced. If you're interested contact me on here and we can discuss your needs (I do not do custom designs though). Here's a sample.

42 year old male self rated 3.0 just finished my first mens league. Looking to improve to 3.5, so would love to find someone nearby to play on a consistent basis. I work from home most days, so can usually be flexible on meeting times. Prefer late mornings or afternoons, just not too late in the day.
