Smile Thanks Alfonsojose, Star, Fee, Rosie, Space Cadet, Lee, RonE,Superpinkone3 ..

...Rick V, Tennis lurker, Auscon, Fee, tennischick and anantak2k!!!!

I'm being down by my studies (6 tests within a week!!! heartless lecturers!!!).. but I kept my tennis at bay and aside for a while... and last sunday i rallied with some friends in the rain... and i did well cos for some reason heavy, wet balls are disadvantageous to players who spin the ball...

i wasn't hoping much but today...i was playing in my school against the 5th seed in my group of tennis friends(we formed a mini ladder) and i managed to win the set 7-5!!! Of course time ran out(to play another set) but I'm very happy for two reasons!!!

1st: I was 3-5 down but i never gave up!!!

2nd:...i went for shots and somehow everything went in today!!! he was running more than me to save the shots..

3rd...i have never won the top 6 players in this group before...

my other records against this player is:

i lost 6-0,6-0
i lost 6-2,6-2
i lost 6-2
i lost 4-1

I'm very happy and all credits comes from you guys who gave all advices to me... convincing me to keep on playing..

yes the short break made me more eager to play... and today showed how much i missed playing...

gotta work on my backhand volleys though... keep missing the passing shots to that side...

(PS: sorry to anyone who gave me advice but i missed posting your name...you know i'm grateful to you too..but i'm in school now and hurry to post this thank you note..cos i gotta go study for two test tomolo...German and ugh...Instumental Analysis(a chemistry module...the most dry one ever...meaning those modules that once you open the book and read a few sentences you feel like sleeping...)

Don't be deceived by the rankings!! Coria, Roddick, Mirnyi, Schuettler, Fish, Safin, Henman, Tursunov, Ljubicic, Bovina, Li Na, Ivanovic, Chan YJ, Dementieva, Vinci, Sugiyama, Coetzer, Tanasugarn, Vaidisova, Zheng, Dokic and Kournikova are the world's best tennis players in the world!!!

Yay, glad you're back into the swing of things, Buddy!
I'm having great fun (re-)learning tennis as well. Yesterday I played for 3 hours on 3 different surfaces . Rebound Ace is definitely the surface for me, I can't figure out clay and carpet is too fast.

My German guys are like the cast of the Wizard of Oz:

Rainer = Lion
Kiwi = Scarecrow
Tommy = Tin Man
Flo = Dorothy

...but I still love 'em

Well, that's great for you Buddy, but I still SUCK at tennis. Who's going to help meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee? Nevermind, I'm behind help in this matter...

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.

i think he's injured...dun be too harsh on him...remember...he's playing at a professional level...taking a break may or may not be a good thing...players are getting better year in and out...it's difficult to maintain the standard every year...just look at all the disappointing results from safin, kuerten and so on...

but i do hope he gets back in his game....

i think i'm in a transition state..so having a break gives me more mental alertness as well as more fitness instead of feeling tired and helpless...

for his case...the fitness is there cos they train almost everyday and have gotten used to it(dun forget the number of years he's on the circuit)...it's just his game that makes the huge difference...

Don't be deceived by the rankings!! Coria, Roddick, Mirnyi, Schuettler, Fish, Safin, Henman, Tursunov, Ljubicic, Bovina, Li Na, Ivanovic, Chan YJ, Dementieva, Vinci, Sugiyama, Coetzer, Tanasugarn, Vaidisova, Zheng, Dokic and Kournikova are the world's best tennis players in the world!!!
