Ken: Thanks everyone !!
Tennis Iggy :-): Great call today Ken!!1 I hope you get to enjoy the rest of the day. Hope to hear you tomorrow!!!
๐ŸŽพ Marcus Tennis: Great call today, Ken! Enjoyed hanging out!
msfan: Give some love to Chang and give some scorn to the Russian. Up 2-0 in the first set, then gets steamrolled in that set. Up 5-2 in the second set, then falls apart again.
msfan: Gotta commit to the slice BH, like any other stroke. If you don't commit, any good opponent will punish you. With Prejudice.
msfan: Dominika Cibulkovรก only 5'3", so doesn't have a great serve. But, she hits her groundies as consistently hard as anyone on the tour. Consistently hard but not always consistently in.
Tennis Iggy :-): If 5'7" is short, I am really in trouble!!! :-)
msfan: Bob MacCANDO.. He was a god when he was with Jack Ramsay's Buffalo Braves, along with Ernie NoD, Gar Heard, and Randy Smith. That team once put up something like 150 points on Alcindor's Bucks. In Milwaukee. They were the best show in the NBA.
๐ŸŽพ Marcus Tennis: Oops, . . . didn't mean the all caps, . . . sorry . . .
๐ŸŽพ Marcus Tennis: I HEARD THAT THEY WENT OUT OF BUSINESS BECAUSE THEY REALLY DIDN'T LO VE YOU LONG TIME . . .
Tennis Iggy :-): I'm with you Ken!!!! Play On!!1
msfan: That parlor is gone. Rents got too high in the nearest commercial properties. I've got to travel further for those treatments.
๐ŸŽพ Marcus Tennis: MSFAN, there is still a parlor around the corner that will give you a "lower back treatment", . . . or, so I've heard . . .
๐ŸŽพ Marcus Tennis: Let's go three!
msfan: One of the perks that I miss from the departed Los Angeles ATP tournament was the complimentary lower back treatment from ATP-certified trainers that would be provided to Gold Club Member spectators.
Tennis Iggy :-): Wow!! msfan, I'm glad you made it hoem!! Yes, the voice of silk has helped many folks through dark times!!! I hope Chang isn't out of this...that would be a shame!!
msfan: Brutal conditions out there. Searing heat. I'm dehydrated. Bleached skull and jaw bones of dead cattle littering the landscape. Stumbling around, hallucinating. Mirages of oases. Only KT's voice kept me going, enabling me to reach the cool shelter of my home.
Tennis Iggy :-): That was a nice interview with Eric Hayes!!!
Tennis Iggy :-): You sound great Ken!!! Is it hotter in Macon than it was in Landsville the year that woman fainted on the court ?
Ken: Test
๐ŸŽพ Marcus Tennis: I'm enjoying the call today, Ken. Is the USTA live streaming going to feature you as the commentator? That would be awesome
Tennis Iggy :-): The rest of the Zoo Crew may know stuff about the players...I tune in to hear the voice of silk!!!
๐ŸŽพ Marcus Tennis: I'm staying inside, doing some home improvement remodeling.
msfan: 2 1/2 miles of walking b4 this next SoCal heat wave hits hard. Hope my phone picks up RadioTennis well.
๐ŸŽพ Marcus Tennis: Is it me, or did this match go quickly?
๐ŸŽพ Marcus Tennis: *countries
๐ŸŽพ Marcus Tennis: There are SOME con tries that will take ANYONE on their team :-)
๐ŸŽพ Marcus Tennis: I don't want to diminish what Ken just said, but . . . it depends on what country you are playing Fed Cup for :-P
msfan: Spadea, who had a record-setting ATP 21-match losing streak in singles. Now, he's started a losing streak in the movies.
๐ŸŽพ Marcus Tennis: Not a lot of tennis playing in the movie, believe it, or not. The little bit that there is, is solid. The tennis player body doubles for BJK and Riggs were Tennis Friend Kaitlyn Christian (former USC All-American) and . . . Vince Spadea.
Tennis Iggy :-): Ken is sooooo FUNNY!! I love this show!!!
msfan: Reportedly, there is an Allman Bros museum in Macon. KT better visit that museum on this trip , if he hasn't already, or I will give him serious grief next time I see him.
msfan: Haven't seen the movie. Be interesting to see how realistic the tennis scenes are. Dino Martin, Dean Martin's son, was in a tennis movie back in the late 70s-early 80s. Since Dino was a low-ranked pro tennis player for a while, I imagine he looked fairly good playing tennis in that movie--which I also haven't seen.
msfan: Speaking of Riggs and Groucho Marx, Groucho's son, Arthur, was a very good juniors player who competed against Riggs way back when. Arthur was good enuf to make the US Junior Davis Cup team. WWII got in the way. After the war, Arthur made a living as a much-published writer.
๐ŸŽพ Marcus Tennis: I cannot wait until I see the actual people who were portrayed in the film, to ask them what they thought of the actors portrayal of them. Specifically Lorne Kuhle and Larry Riggs.
๐ŸŽพ Marcus Tennis: The movie is certainly worth seeing. I enjoyed it more than most, simply because Tennis Friend Ashley Wienhold is on of the supporting players, is in nearly every scene, yet had no lines or gameplay, as far as I can tell. I was just cracking up about how much she was featured as part of the core group of BJK's friends.
msfan: Didn't KT do something on RadioTennis with a guy involved with the Bobby Riggs museum down in the San Diego area a few years ago?
Tennis Iggy :-): Hello msfan....yes, I think you described Greg's dress code well!1 I would add a Hawaiian shirt and bermuda shorts with the drink of the day in his hand! Marcus, I very much want to see that movie, particularly with a positive review from you!!
msfan: Some background on the Moldavian-Spanish player at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aliona_Bolsova_Zadoinov
msfan: Been watching reruns of Groucho on "You Bet Your Life" or whatever that show was called. Funny stuff
