50 shades of grey

All of us won a grey top -:)

6-4, 6-4, 4-4: a hard fought win.

I got hit for the first time as my partner was receiving the serve. I was too slow to move away. I told our opponents that they got the point but they didn’t believe me. Oh well … 

Question: During my singles match, I hit a ball to my opponent and it hit his shoe on the fly. At the time he was standing behind the baseline. My opponent said the ball was out and it didn’t matter that it hit his shoe because he was behind the baseline. I argued that if the ball hits a player or any part of his body/apparel with the exception of the racquet, the point is the hitter’s. Who wins the point?

ANSWER: You win the point. Rule 24i explains that a player loses the point if a ball in play touches the player or anything the player is wearing or carrying (excluding the racquet). Your opponent lost the point as soon as the ball hit his shoe. Code 19 requires your opponent to concede the point when this happens.

Over due

I got an email from the club, saying I owe them. Wait a second, how could that be: they’ve my cc on file and has been charging it.
“These were court fees.”
“Oh … why don’t you charge me as the monthly club due, automatically?”
The staff looked up the computer, then said, “you didn’t check off √ ‘court fee’.” Oh well, must be my failing eyesight.

Club’s operation is pretty precise – a good thing. The more I play there, the more I like it.  Years ago when I hosted many Sunday night plays, I didn’t pay much attention to the club.

4-6, 6-4, 6-4 and it’s not ok

A little girl returned our ball that hit my opponent’s face. The girl said I’m sorry three times while my friend was holding her face for a prolonged time. We rushed to the net … then the dad said to his girl “It’s ok.”

“How do you know it’s ok? It’s not your place to say it’s ok. And it is NOT ok.” I said.

He retorted, “she said I’m sorry Three time. What more do you want?”

“I want some manner and etiquette!” I said.

He just ignored us and continued…

The bridge/overpass on Northern Blvd by Roslyn. 

One of my friend went to get some ice (thanks that the club has ice …) It’s swollen a little.

Not that anything one can do … but I would wish all the coaches and parents would have decency and courtesy to pass on. If the dad offered to get some ice I would think it’s a better lesson for his little girl …

🎾 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 难得的赢

A rather rude dad 他小闺女还🎾 不小心打到俺朋友的脸
朋友马上捂着 … 红 + 小肿 需要冰冰敷

可能外国老爹看着自己的孩子道歉不顺气 对闺女说 “没事儿.”

6-3, 4-6, 6-1

Finally, a win!

In the morning, we always ran into a group of kids, college I’d think. They’re great players and their play often inspire us to play better.

The club has install this temperature tester on the wall … hope this won’t last forever.

🐅 Red and black 🐅

6-1, 2-6, 6-6 … keep moving!

The pros at the club, open new balls – they replace old balls every five to six weeks. Geeeee … my balls, generally last about two times.

Yesterday, in support of Tiger Woods 🐅, a few golfers wore red top and black pants, to show support to Tiger who got injured last Wednesday.

Oh boy, it isn’t, like, he’s passed away but maybe it’s what the golf community is thinking, how to continue without him.

Why the heck did he get married to begin with?
