Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.27

Yea, that's what we were discussing earlier is how in the hell did he start going to that straight arm and open face on his back swing on his serve. It looks nothing like it did 3 years ago, nor is it as effective.
From that position I got that shot in, he then rolls his racquet face open, then pretty much straight arms the ball from there.

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.27

I don't know if that is a combination of racquet change + coaching change + mental issues?

Rosie thought it might be trying to compensate for shoulder injury too. That just seems worse on the shoulder to me than what he was doing.

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.27

like what happened with Sharapoofter when she had the surgery? she started using a Roddick-like motion but her serve hasn't gotten back to where it used to be

He certainly has had a good 2010 so far and in the top 30 points race for 2010.

He seems to be playing pretty well. Still having some mental lapses, but is still handling what Nieminen has, regardless.

This thread should be renamed to The Glen Monologue Thread.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).
