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…

The Informed Tennis Buyer: Soccer Moms got it figured out!

I have heard a Soccer Mom talk of attending a recital, ballet practice, and a PTA meeting all scheduled at 9am! Do not ask me how; I am not a soccer mom! Coaching in the burbs, gave me the opportunity to witness these Wonder women types in action.

How do I Find a Good Tennis Coach?

The best way is almost always word of mouth. If you do not have that opportunity and tennis is a new adventure to you, take trial lessons from 3 different coaches within your vicinity and see what works for you. Most clubs and coaches have promo rates, ask. Some let you sit in on a group lesson and get a hang of it. Does it sounds a little like the dating scene, absolutely and the concept is quite similar, if you are going to invest time, money, and sweat, you deserve a good result out of…

...But what made me take the email more seriously was when I got to the end where my friend closed by pointing out an apparent inconsistency in my position.

What's in your Bag?...

Don’t tell me it includes Motrin®, Tylenol® or any number of other pain relievers. If so, we have got to talk.

For years I have been watching many of my USTA league teammates and other tennis players routinely pop a few of these seemingly harmless little pills just before a match. I can understand the need to cover up those aches and pains from tennis elbow, aching knees and the like, but the whole “ignorance is bliss” mantra can be really short lived…
