The Center Court

sea-3.jpgWe played on da center court at the Sea Pines! The only bummmer was there wasn’t a single spectator or linesmen, :). For whatever the reason, the girl (who’s from Kings Park, LI) at the club house decided to indulge us the center court to play.
Very cool.
sea-1.jpgWe played with a couple from Atlanta, the hubby was a former college player.  They watched us play the day before, hence the doubles.  The wife is typical southern belle, a little uptight but good looking, with tanned long legs and good manner on court.  I was taken aback when the hubby started inviting us moving down to Atlanta for the warmer weather.  Looking at his wife who said she plays year around, I got the picture that she’s probably running around with all those charity balls too, :). 

sea-2.jpgRalph the hubby even went out of his way to say the living standard in Atlanta isn’t as high as in NY, so that after selling our house (how on earth does he know where we live in New York or even we live in a house or own/rent?) we could buy in cash in an upscale community .. I was amused.

I’ve been lucky in terms of not getting tennis elbow.. .. till now.  For the past few weeks, my right arm felt funny, sore, hurtful but I managed to continue play without missing a beat.  But today as I served out the match, I felt the pain is screaming loud and clear at me.  Is this the all too common tennis elbow???

cimg0984.JPGPumpkin’s mini session with Walker Sahag and Andy Sklarin at the VDM was pretty good, claiming that they got her serve on track.  Ok cool. The intensity is pretty heavy, Walker with a weathered face yelled loud and clear at the beginning and at the end.  Pumpkin grouped with a little girl, they both worked with the young female coach most of the time while other bigger muscles were divided into two groups with Walker and Andy.  I played the round robin at the Shipyard: five matches, I lost four!  Couples of opponents suggested that I should check out the USTA league.
