Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.27

that is a damn good point jeff. no doubt the americans offer the same excuse when they hit roland garros. i remember couple or 3 years ago when all 7 americans lost in the first round at roland garros.

I knew you'd love that comment, simply could not resist. I played 3 sets of doubs today in the wind and cold. Played pretty well considering. It's like some times bad conditions make me focus and concentrate harder that I end up playing better on those days..

Then I came home and had a big bowl of chicken noodle soup and crackers.. One of my favorite meals after a cold day outside..

One of the many problems with American juniors. They don't want it enough.

I almost had forgotten... it's really puzzling that two tennis fans like you and me, brought up in such different times and places with such radical tennistic differences end up making the same points and agreeing 99% of the time.

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).

This guy in my tennis club keeps ducking my challenge emails. I'm going to have to call forfeit, even though I would rather actually play the match.

i got us a large emoticon of that crocodile. go ahead and save it for future use.

i started laughing the second i read that remark. too funny.

i am staying in today and getting my rest and recovery. the gains in fitness and conditioning are made only at rest, not while training.

big bowl of chicken noodle soup is always great for lunch after some physical activity in the cold.

Re: •°o*Ye Olde Castle vol.27

Anytime man, I'd be happy to set her straight. The thing about mom's is, there must be a big mold somewhere that spits them out, coz they are all the same no matter where they are...

I'm going to kick back and relax a while and watch a movie on tv.. It's a lazy day around here, time to take advantage of it.. See you all later...

i have also received good feedback on these crazy emoticons. they ease tension and are a lot of fun.

agreed jonathan. there is still another deeper problem here in the states as far as tennis is concerned. some of our very best athletes dont want to play tennis.
