I prefer having these weeks with 3 lower tournies.

And no TV coverage? No live scores? No player biographies?

Lack of TV coverage sucks.

I'm probably better off without the other 2. :p

Better off as far as time management is concerned, perhaps... but not better off for entertainment purposes :(

I spend my days and nights dreaming of an Olivier Mutis vs. Kenneth Carlsen final in Delray Beach.

I have just found out I can get some good Kent Carlsson videos, so no withdrawl here.

Roundarm passing shots are the best.

Not as good as topspin lob winners off the return of serve when the guy is serve/volleying.

Hmm, is a good point. Takes even better timing and eye-hand coordination than a half-volley groundstroke winner from the baseline, and it can obviously be hilariously devastating to someone serving and volleying.

You do know he did that a few times don't you?

He was before my time, but lately I have been learning more and more about fellows like him. If Kent did have this shot in his repotoire (which he obviously did) I'm sure he used it often and coveted it like a first-born child.

The reverse kick serve is spectacular as well. I have by no means perfected it, but I have been messing around with that shot. It is to put it lightly incredibly useful to be able to do a kick serve with righty and lefty spin.

The Older players thread needs to be updated now with this info.
