I had to. My legs were no longer the same, so my strokes had to improve.
Being a runner, my legs are still strong. It is my knees that are falling apart.

I am only surprised that this issue is coming up now, because, at a minimum, this has been going on since last year. I remember we talked about it.
It is Tuesday. If so many women are not liking the ball, I gather that changing them would be just a matter of one afternoon meeting. It is not as if NYC does not have enough balls in the city.

Nick Kyrgios faces legal action over '700 drinks' jibe during Wimbledon

Reuters

A tennis fan is taking legal action against Nick Kyrgios after he accused her of being "drunk out of her mind" during his defeat in the Wimbledon final.

In a statement released by her solicitors Tuesday, Anna Palus said the 27-year-old Australian had defamed her by making "a reckless and entirely baseless allegation."

"Not only did this cause considerable harm on the day, resulting in my temporary removal from the arena, but Mr. Kyrgios's false allegation was broadcast to, and read by, millions around the world, causing me and my family very substantial damage and distress," she said.

Kyrgios, well known for his outbursts, complained to the umpire during his match against Novak Djokovic, saying that a fan had been talking to him during points.

Asked by the umpire to identify the fan, Kyrgios then said: "The one with the dress, the one who looks like she's had about 700 drinks, bro."

Palus, 32, who said she had attended the men's final with her mother, instructed her solicitors, Brett Wilson LLP, to begin legal proceedings against Kyrgios and said any damages she wins will be donated to charity.

"I hope that Mr. Kyrgios will reflect on the harm he has caused me and my family and offer a prompt resolution to this matter," she said. "However, if he is unwilling to do this, I am committed to obtaining vindication in the High Court."

Kyrgios was appearing in his first Grand Slam final and took the first set against Djokovic but lost his cool as he headed to a four-set defeat on Centre Court.

He's an absolute magnet for trouble, isn't he?
Now that this particular ice has been broken, expect more loons to come out of the woodwork...

He should have not said that to her.
But suing for this is basically looking for money.

Blasphemy! A one handed moving to a 2 handed ;)
I went the opposite. Grew up with a two handed, moved to a one hander around 19. It became my solid side.
Good luck with that. Let us know how it goes.

Come September 6th, I will be starting my first tennis lesson from the club professional. It will be an enlightening experience for me to see how I can improve on this game. I will also have much more time for my tennis and also running, as my husband and I have come to the decision that it is the appropriate time for me to retire at the end of this year(around the holidays). I have worked many years as a Medical Transcriptionist for my husband who is a Neurologist and my husband has wanted me to retire for sometime now to just tend to the home and what I enjoy doing. So now I will be going into that next chapter in my life.

:thumbsup:
Only piece of advice (I am allowed to): Tell the pro what you want from each lesson. Don't let him just feed you balls. Be very clear with what you want: "I want to hit a topspin forehand" (example).
Too many people just have a pro feed them balls and not correct technique.
And HAVE LOTS OF FUN! Good on the retirement news.

Congratulations on your retirement! Now you can do everything you wanted (within reason of course :lol: )
