I took last week off (had too much work), but my knee seems much stronger this week than last week. I am also cleaning up my footwork, definately saves a lot of effort. Working more on consistant strokes and playing smart.
I definately work too hard, most of the shots I had to run for just cleared the net and were at sharp angles. I was definately hitting both sides just running across the court constantly . My control like everything else, needs practice. I would barely return the ball and my opponent was putting it wherever he wanted. It's a game of catch up right now. I think part of it is I need to see look at the whole picture and be more patient instead of trying to rush everything. What do you think?
Hey you got to play some great tennis, get a "sick" shot in, and hopefully finished with a margarita. Now thats a great Saturday. I rallyed with a very solid young player yesterday, he ran me all over the court and I totally overworked my knee. (Injury from last year). Had a great time, but really have to play smarter. I am not one to hold back, so it will be very hard. Must rest and try again next week. It was so great to play.... no substitute for a hard workout!
Well I don't really need a training. I just would like to find people to play tennis with on weekends. I'm not really interested in classes. I'm not sure if this is a trial run to see if I'd be interested in signing up for classes, because I wouldn't since my income in a lil low right now. But thank you for the generous offer !
No, I was a racquetball player for ten years and won 3 out of 4 tournaments. I just started hitting tennis alot in the last three years and want to enter tournaments in the 40 age bracket. I've hit with challenger players and college players and won doubles matches. I'll be 40 in May.
Finally!!! I am finding better players...I needed to push a few buttons before players came out of the wood-work....Yes...I am a player.... But only as good as the players I hit with.... I need better players to prepare me for 2011 tournaments.... I recently found a really good 5.5 player and he got hurt....sucks!!!!! If you want to hit after the New Year, I am up for it.....Doubles is my game too. I played in college... won titles.....I am playing well now.....
