12 Months Post Herniation Back To Hitting Clean Winners

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.…

Citi Open Quarterfinal Preview

Source: This Week in Tennis

The 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 8th seeds all survived early rounds and are ready to battle their opponents on the other side of the net and the heat.

7 US Men into the Main draw of the 2011 US OPen so realistically what are our chances this year?

How Absurd is the title and title sponsor of the Hamburg Tennis tournament this week -'bet-at-home-open"

I am conflicted regarding this tournament that is being held in Hamburg this week.  Tennis betting or sports betting in general is ILLEGAL in the United States, but an ATP tournament in Germany is underwritten by an online sports betting company from Austria?  First off I do not gamble on tennis or any sport so I find it a little disturbing that we are sending such conflicting signals to our children.  Is it not true that the prize money comes from the sponsors and the sponsor is an online…
