No sets, it snowed and is very, very cold here. Had to settle for running, weights and dreaming about the start of leagues in March. Did however sign up for a tennis camp in June. 5 days of heaven in Amherst.

No sets yet, but have hit 3 times and had one clinic since my total knee replacement 8 weeks ago!! I have clearance to play, but feel I need another 2-3 weeks before I can really be mobile on the court. I LOVE THIS GAME!!!

I don't know...I think it is worse to lose 6-0 6-0...even if you lose in the break, you can hold your head high that you fought back

None this weekend and in truth haven't swung my Head in about a year and a half. Looking to change that streak with a few games this year. If ever in my neck of the woods (Fort Wayne, IN) and need a player drop me a line. Weekends are best. emoticon

Not new to SparkPeople, but new to this team. My partner and I lost in 3 hours, 2-6, 6-4, 6-3, it was a fabulous match!!! Do you all give yourselves full credit for a doubles match as far as Cardio on sparks? I am a USTA 3.5 and it seems to me that the "tennis" on the cardio fitness number sfor calories burned must be for Singles, what do you think? I don't feel like I burn that many calories, do you?

Just two sets yesterday. My partner and I beat the other team 6-0, 6-4. I play in six contracts a week and I am on 3 teams so I play a lot of tennis every week. My body is starting to give up on me, too many injuries lately. Hurt myself picking up my puppy and was out of tennis for 4 weeks over the holidays. It was good to be back last week.

Look at those scores! I would be worried standing across the net from you.

We are the ones we've been waiting for.

Today was my off day, but yesterday I played 4.5 sets (2.5 for fun warmup, and 2 in an actual competitive match 6-3, 6-2) and Monday 2 sets (winner! Beat an undefeated team and had my FIRST 4.0 win!) 6-3, 6-3 I believe.

I know how you feel Dave. I wear a brace on each knee. Now that I'm finally losing weight I plan to try to take my left brace off when I hit 140 and my right one off when I hit 125. I will probably keep them both on until I warm up each time I go out on court. Now that the weather is getting cold (30's here) I think the added warm up time with braces on is important. You will be back out on the courts in no time Dave, but make sure that you give yourself time to heal before you start lacing up your tennis shoes.

We are the ones we've been waiting for.

Sunday singles 6-4, 4-2. I withdrew after pulling calf muscle in my good leg. Getting old isn't for sissies.

I just returned home from playing outside. Started at 45 degrees this morning but it warmed up nicely as the morning wore on. Started out playing Australian until our 4th showed up. I brought cookies right out of the oven that the guys munched on during the change overs. The geese were out in force turning the day in to a feast for the eyes as they sailed over the brilliant colors of fall.

We are the ones we've been waiting for.

I'm so happy to find this group on spark. I'm an avid tennis player (4 times a week) with a weight challenge. I played two sets yesterday 6-1, 6-4 outdoor doubles.

We are the ones we've been waiting for.
