Laying off the grass

Since it's the middle Sunday of Wimbledon and not much is going on out there (except Federer getting a walkover into the quarterfinals), here's a chance to mention something else that I hope Tennis Talk, Anyone? can help out with.

I got an e-mail from someone yesterday looking for a partner to play with in the Park Slope area, who's also looking for courts as well, and a place to possibly take lessons. I told her Prospect Park Tennis Center, but if there are any other ideas, please feel free to post them in the comments section. The more people playing tennis (and talking about it, too) the better I always say!

And if you don't have a Blogger account, you can just click on the "Anonymous" button in the comments pop-up window and leave an answer like that.

A couple of things.

Poor Tommy as He Ha(a)s no Luck! I mean this poor guy stepped on a tennis ball at wimbledon a couple of years ago and has had to pull out this year due to a torn abdominal muscle. He has been injure and re-injured and add to all this his parents being into a horrific Motorcycle accident. Have to give the guy credit for trying to overcome adversity!

A second thought- Being the creative guy that I am and avid tennis player. I think it would be really fun to have people comment and analyze the games of people they play with in the local area. A fair assessment about someone's game. I think people would enjoy reading accurrate and viable comments made by people they play. What do you think?

Yeah, that's definitely rough for Haas. I remember when he came up and was the youngest player in the top 50. Injuries have just really put a damper on his career. And personally, I think it's too late for guys in their late 20s, such as Haas, Ljubicic, etc., to make even a Slam final.
