A clinic

I haven’t attend a clinic in many years. Filing in for Daisy and got an earful from the front desk: can’t do that. The pro failed to show up … what a day.

The line calls

🎾 2-6, 6-4, 3-6 🎾

The line calls are problematic. Remember, if a ball looks 99% out, it IS still 100% IN. The reason behind this, is due to the etiquette: be gracious – having doubt? Then give your opponent the point. Secondly, if the partners have different call, then it’s your opponents’ point. When you look at a point, taking your time to call it in or out, Are you really looking at the mark or having your own personal struggle?

喔 春节就要到了

上: 人家家属做的 cookies … 好好吃
下: 哪里的稻香村 … 马马虎虎 …

Line call: if it’s 99% out then it’s 100% in.

A glass of wine between sets

1-6, 2-6, 9-8 on serve when time ran out.

I played pretty bad, even lost a 40-love game. But we got 30 min break in between and we enjoyed a glass of sweet wine -Roscato Rosso Dolce 2017 –  with snakes. 

All is good -:)

Hitting time

One hour, three courts, six players. Came out to a sunny, blue skies day.

6-2, 4-4

An hour of doubles, after a decent snow fall two days ago. The roads are all cleaned.

My partner asked me if my town got snowed, it brought back the past snow-fighting memories. It seemed, the 2010 was a year with many big snow stormed but the nuts we are, as soon as the offices closed early, they didn’t come home first but call for tennis. The first two were taken on Feb 10, 2010 and the last one was on Dec 26, 2010.

🎾 6-2, 4-4 🎾 没完没了

俺搭档说起大雪 俺说这点❄️真不大
想起2010年的二场雪
1⃣️2⃣️是二月雪 好多公司11点左右就关门了. 他们不是急着回家 而是☎️俺 “快快快 找球场…” 真有人开门 订了一个还不够 八个神经病[呲牙]. 幸好路上空空荡荡 记得四轮都打滑[捂脸][闭嘴]
3⃣️是🎄第二天晚上

不傻帽几次 怎么行 [得意]

1-4

Having too much on my mind, I played poorly: 2-6, 4-6, 0-6, 6-1 in a doubles game.

I picked up my racket for restrung, $32.58. Don’t know what kind of string and don’t know the tension. The only choice I made was between white or black color of string. I chose white. End of report, lol.

Monday, I hit for an hour with the blue racket. It felt heavy, than the reddish one.

One hour of hitting


The little girl is 7 years old. Apparently, she was there since 7 o’clock in the morning.

Keeping up an intense hour of hard hitting with a 50 years old opponent, is exhilarating yet taxing. Coming out of the club, seeing a sunny, windless 43° day is another joy of this Monday.

4-6 and 5 sets pickle ball


We did a slightly better tennis than last time. Five sets of pickle ball 4-1.

A lady who’s regular at the pickle ball game played a set of tennis. She hardly knows how to play …
