thanks dudley, looking forward to meeting you and joining your group tennis sessions. I will try and drop in very soon, just had a baby a month ago (son), and still bonding with baby and helping the wife as much as i can. thanks again and see you soon.
Thank you!! I had a lot of fun and everyone was really nice and welcoming (I just wished I warmed up more before we started - then we would have beaten them for sure!!). Definitely game for next time... I am actually in town all next week and have a very flexible schedule - would love to play as much as I can every day/almost any time!!
yeah, i remember when tennis was PRIME time Television. I was glued to the tv watching those players...... the american players, the swedes, spanish, french players, Ivan Lendl; all of which had SUCH different styles...You never really knew who would win the big tournaments. Ivan Lendl was actually a very generous person. When I was in high school he was #1 in the world and he came to my little hometown (corpus christi, tx) and played an exhibition against Steve Denton to raise money for a man who needed a heart transplant (Terry Kalenda). They raised the money for the transplant and he is still alive to this day! I sat very close to the action and the speed of the game was actually faster than i thought it would be. People today say the players of the 80's hit the ball casually but i saw it with my own eyes and they dont know what they are talking about.... Nice to meet you to
Hi Dudley. Dragan and I have been playing in Walnut Creek a lot with our friends. The thing about Thursdays is that I work till 6, even 6:30 sometimes. By the time I get home and get ready and drive to San Ramon, it gets late. But we hope to make it one of these days. I would love to play with you guys again. Take care.
Rain, the bane of every tennis instructor's existence with the exception of those fortunate enough to teach indoors. I haven't been affected as much as far as being an instructor since my last job teaching tennis ended in Sept 2010 but of course playing time has been limited since I don't belong to any Club Sport. Let me know when the weather improves and you are able to take time out of your busy schedule...
