I did it also once against a player from Futures circuit and lost 0-6 0-6. I had a game point twice

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Re: Have any of you guys ever hit around with a pro (or future pro)?

I hit with Jesse Witten as warmup for a ProAm mixed doubles (Mike Yani was my partner) and it took Jesse a year to recover from the damage I did to his game.

I hit with Horia Tecau for about 15 minutes in 2006 before Ilija B. kicked us off the court. I was sucking wind like I had just run a mile. He hit the heaviest ball I had ever dealt with and it nearly killed me (in between laughing our heads off at how badly I suck at tennis).

Justin and Jan-Michael have both promised to hit with me 'some day' so I've got that to look forward to, but both have said they will only do it if I start playing regularly again which I haven't done in over a year. Perhaps I'll dust off my racquet when the rain stops.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Despite the rumours, none of them has ever hit on me. A few others have, but I will never mention their names.

I don't know how much longer his back can take it. He's been hitting a lot down in Melbourne, trying to stay in some kind of shape for a few exo and Senior matches here and there I suppose.

Yeah, the weather really sucks, but we need this rain desperately. Would love to see Folsom Lake all filled up again.

I'm pretty sure his diving days are behind him, even on grass. I hope so anyway.

By the way, I love your use of the transitive property in the first post.

I've hit with the Bryan brothers at this tennis clinic they had in my hometown and one of my tennis instructors was part of the Greek national team (or something like that)

I want to have my evil way with Tommy Robredo

My brother has a friend on the Cornell tennis team who claims he once trained with Djokovic and he said Djokovic was not that good and was a real asshole. My brother honestly said that, I have no idea if the guy is telling the truth though. My brother likes Novak so he wouldn't be making it up.
