    Though I wasn't hitting that well, Jake didn't like the high heat body shots when I could.



    Steve - your racquets are done... need to figure out a way to get them back to you earlier as I won't be leaving Calgary until about 4 - the time you step on court for singles.
    do you have my number? give me a call and hopefully we can meet somewhere tomorrow.

    the last 2 times me and eric played together, we beat the 3/4 seed both times (then promptly lost to lionel and austin).

    we beat jake and clinton by not playing the drive and smash game with them. we dropped alot and slowed the pace until we forced a short lift and just put it away with a smash or follow-up netkill.

    you get into a power game against them and i think you'll be in trouble.

    lol always solid advice, well could be worse you could use the famous line "just win the last rally" or "just hit it over the net"

    this is good advice, when Vining and I played them, they beat us by playing more of a flat game, when we had them playing up and down (clear and drop), that was when we were winning (especially when we set up Vining's boomstick at the back)

    I will go out on a limb and say that I had the harder smash this weekend.

    ( you can ask Mark Docksteader about that) .


    Evylngrynn and I didn't get so far in doubles.. so we ate sushi and watched a couple horror movies to ease our sorrows.

    vining i can agree with you that you did, you were just cranking those shuttles and had a close game with mark too 21-23 that was pretty close id say. I didnt go far in doubles well singles wasnt the best for me either just semi finalist in C so nothig fancy there. are you playing any more tournaments minus strathmore or is that all for you for the season?

    I was really happy to get what I did against Mark.

    If I have the boomstick working like that and am able to get my leg strength back to a decent level where I my footwork is smoother, I'll be semi -dangerous again.
