John, this is going out only to my friends on Tennisopolis. I'm trying to build some buzz on facebook for Tennisopolis. I couldn't think of anything extremely clever, so I figured giving away cool stuff always works! I need your help today; just LIKE the post our our fb page for a Verdasco autograph. And stay tuned, we're going to be having more giveways on fb in the near future.
I'd like to have a lesson with you.........if the offer still stands. I am an older woman playing 3.0-3.5 and needing more exercise..........perhaps you know some others I might hit with. I live in Roseville and have a flexible schedule. I'd like to work on court coverage, anticipation, and always the serve.
congrats on the win... enjoyed the video- you had some nice winners up the line. Life is good in the sunshine state. I am excited for my triathlon season to get going- but am also finding time to play some tennis (and work on that forehand)... keep me updated on your tennis adventures- I'm sure it will all be good news :)
The Clay SIngles video was quite a match! You are a very dynamic player. I haven't seen anyone use every muscle in their body to play tennis, I think that means you can skip yoga. You also have amazing placement. The game is still very fast on clay, do you prefer it to hard courts? (Where was this game? Clay is not orange???? or maybe that is just on international courts.) Good luck on future matches, if you are ever near Bakersfield, drop me a line. It would be fun to watch one of your matches. Cheers, Saralee

Excited to hear you played well yesterday! I had a great time playing with you and it definitely made me realize how much I miss playing doubles... The bike ride was pretty sweet- probably my best ride so far. We biked 150 miles over the weekend and today finished 75 miles in 3 hours and 40 minutes...
Hope you enjoyed your cruise. I have a hard time seeing you relaxing with mai tais for a week, but who knows? I hear there are tons of things to do on the ship or in port. Glad for you, probably a fun change from the normal schedule.
Things are fine here, just sticking to playing against the back board. I just want to focus on strokes without the running. I played mixed doubles the other week and overdid it. Just gotta take is slower. I am riding a bike to build up muscles around the knee; it is making a difference. I guess it's a good lesson in patience.
Also reading the book, Mastery by George Leonard. Very interesting, lots of great info about really developing a skill, enjoying the practice and focusing on the long term goal. He says " To learn is to change". Well said.
Hope you had a good cruise... hitting sounds good, there is a place not too far from channelside that has about 8 courts with lights... the address is 4000 Watrous Ave. Do you want to meet at the courts?
