Hey sounds great. I may be in Chicago this June for the International Design exhibition and conference - I consult with Knoll so I would like to get there with them - love Chicago & a game of tennis will be great! Keep on hitting even if you say you "choke" - me too by the way! Jane
Ahhhhh, you played against Lily and her hubby huh, you picked a rough couple didn't you? Lily plays on the court next to me on Wed nights with some ladies, she's a good player, strong serve, good volleys. Baseline shots are good also, very unusual style, she gets to the ball but lets it drop lower like racquetball then strikes the ball. She'd love me with all my topspin (ha ha). I played against her and her husband once for fun, nice guy but I pissed him off when I used drop shots on him, he got there on the second bounce and then hit them so hard into the ceiling her ripped the material. Oh well, part of the game son (ha ha). He hits pretty good though. I played on Lily's team for a while, I think it was a 7.0 mixed, thought it would be fun "IT WASN'T" that is why I don't play team tennis. I play cause I love the sport, not just to win at any cost. Mixed doubles hitting the ball 9 out of 10 times at the woman or trying to take their heads off with shots instead of playing it like there were 4 men on the court, I really hated it. One match the guy was head hunting my partner, then the typical raise of the racquet and saying sorry, once is sorry, 3 / 4 times is not. I was border line going over the net and kicking the guys ass, I could care less about getting kicked out of a USTA league, didn't want to get kicked out of my club though, so I quit.
Oh ya, I forgot to ask you, do you know anyone looking for an expensive ball machine? It's not one of those $500 cheap models, I paid over $1.700 for it. I might have used it 6 times since I bought it a few years back. I had so many people wanting to play me I just never had or have time to use it, it just sits in my bedroom (wifey loves that) ha ha
