一個很好的旅行遊紀(http://rickyling.travellife.org/cambodia/)﹐吳哥窟是我一直想去的地方。

人們說她匱乏,我看到了知足;
人們說她落後,我看到了生機;
人們說她貧窮,我看到了自強;
人們說她戰亂,我看到了祥和;
人們說她蕭條,我看到了文明。

在二零零六年十一月,我終於踏足了這片即接近又遙遠的土地,看到了一個不一樣的柬埔寨,看到了重拾光輝的吳哥文明。

My Tennis Racquet Collection: Histories and Stories

By admin, August 26, 2009 12:47

近幾個月打少了好多球﹐因為天氣太不穩定及實在太熱了﹐而且Wii的Grand Slam Tennis也太好玩了﹐所以多左在室內對住個LCD電視打網球。遲D再找那些失散了幾個月的網友打波先。

The following is my My Tennis Racquet Collection, let me begin the thread…please share and post your collection. I still like those old-school racquets so much, owning one of these classic rackets is one thing, but true appreciation the meaning and history behind these classic rackets is another!

From left to right (app. manufacture date):

1. Babolat Pure Drive GT (2009) – SOLD
Got it from a net friend, mainly because I want to switch racquet after 20 years.

2. Wilson Prostaff 85 (1984), Taiwan version

3. Rossignol F200 Mat Wilander (1985), Made in France

4. Puma Boris Becker Super with PCS (1984), Made in Taiwan

5. Dunlop Max 200G Pro (1991), Made in England

6. Dunlop Max 200G 1st version (1983), Made in England
Got this hidden treasure last week from MK 龍騰, it’s definitely a great bargain considering the history of this 1st version. I hitted it yesterday finally. Wow! Just As advertised (Manufactured with the unique grafil injection molding system providing you with that solid feel on your every shot.), the mold injection works, absolutely ZERO vibration and feel great at the net.

7. Prince Super Graphite, 28 inches (1995) – SOLD
I got this mainly because I like Prince Boron so much and it looks like Boron but much lighter, so it’s also quite unstable when returning heavy ralley.

8. Prince Original Graphite Oversize 4 strips (1991), Grip 3, Oversize printed on top
This is the one I got in 1991 after changing from single back hand to double back hand, and it’s also the first POG I’ve got, I’ve been using it mainly over the last 20 years.

9. Head Prestige Classic 600(1985), Made in CZ on throat

10. Head Prestige Classic 600 (1988), Design in CZ

11. Head Prestige Classic 600 (1992), Design in CZ, TW version

12. Slazenger Ambassador Wooden (1962)
Bring back the days of Vilas and Nastase, it’s been used as a living room decoration since 2009

Wii EA Grand Slam Tennis

By admin, August 20, 2009 10:44

1It is the EA Grand Slam Tennis that made me to purchase Wii finally, Wii is my 1st video game console after almost 20 years as I quitted video game previously due to playing too much when I was young. 

The real and virtual were extremely well assembled on Grand Slam Tennis on Wii, you could be anyone you want especially those big names from the 80s! Like Pete Sampras, Stefan Edberg, Boris Becker, etc and the new ones like Federer and Nadal.

What’s best, you can even create your own character to compete with the pros.

With the help from newly released Wii weapon MotionPlus, you can fine tune your action to simulate the amazing serve and volley playing style again which is rarely seen on modern tennis game nowadays.

PS. You can watch some very exciting games on Youtube.

轉載: TennisBuddy 到這論壇三個月後的感想

By admin, August 12, 2009 15:27

I found a very interesting article written by Discuss Forum’s TennisBuddy about other players.

今次應該是最後一次寫每月心聲了。我仍然喪發帖(340 + 563 + >1200 in 3 mths ),但以後盡量不多寫了,免得神憎鬼厭。

以下只幾點感受
1. 到論壇後得到幾樣本來都打算想要的東西:友誼、球技、歡樂 �
2. 很神奇,這裏好人比壞人多得多;好少人阿之阿咗
3. 人們的行為在網上網下真的有點不一樣;這跟社會調查是一致的
4. 之前網球九型人格的選舉大概反應這裏的情況(會員的價值觀和種類)
5. 我預期我跟這裏不少的朋友仔應該可以長做長有- 瞓覺唸起都會笑醒  �

我要扼要地表達對跟我打過球的朋友仔的印象,因此給他們每一位改個花名然後給他們一個虛擬獎。找不到你的名字就告訴我吧!

大家分享一下如何面對信心這個重要問題

By admin, March 26, 2009 21:11

請問師兄/師姐們﹐你們有沒有遇過打打下突然發現水準大失﹐信心隨之付諸東流。

越打越驚﹐手臂手腕越來越揮不動﹐步伐越來越笨拙等等症狀﹖心裡想著下一板一定要過﹐但還是事與願違﹐繼續呈無狀態狀。

隨之而來先是氣憤(因這麼容易的球都打不到)﹑因為壓力令身體更不協調, 即而出現氣餒然後想放棄。惡性循環﹐氣憤>氣餒>放棄﹐至信心全失去。

你們是如何如何調節心情和再擁有信心的﹖ 

The Selection of Tennis Racquets

By admin, March 19, 2009 15:16

When you are a beginner, you tend to use a larger and super techono enhanced racquet (at my time, it was Wilson Hammer 2.7 si) because you may feel it’s more powerful and more easy to handle, most of the time it’s lighter (acutally head heavy) as well.

When you gets into tennis, say after 5 years, you will gradually look for control (then I switched to POG OS), and then after say 10+ years, you will gradually look for feel and touch of every ball you hit., that’s how I found racquets like S85/PC600 are the perfect ones (acutally head light) and indeed they are VERY Heavy and VERY UNFORGIVING compares to Oversize ones, they also require you to have full loop swing, good footwork, but who cares, I don’t play that much set, just casual tennis, enjoy the feel/touch/angle is the most delighting part of my game.

It’s really hard to explain in words, but do try those old daddy racquets if you have a chance, they are amazing, and visit TW forum more, you will see many others agrees with my point.

大家請進來一齊來重溫一下80年代的輝煌日子

By admin, March 19, 2009 05:23

P. Sampras, I. Lendl, B. Becker, A. Agassi, S. Edberg, these are all the big icons we remembered from the 80s, and of course, how can we left out our favourite Tennis Prince Michael Chang! and indeed it was Michael who won the 89 French Open that inspired me to really pick up tennis as my one and only sports back then.

Wilson Prostaff 85, Head Prestige Classic 600, Prince Graphite, Addias GTX, Donnay Pro One, Head Radical, these are all the Holy Grail racquets, many of us wanted to own badly in order to feel what it’s like to be one of the above big names.

Serigio Tachinni, Nike, Addias, Fila and Reebok associated tennis fashion (like fluorescent 熒光 clothing from Agassi, back then I own a pair of those Nike shoes and they are so NOT durable), I still remembered many of us dressing like one of those above icons when we were teens and it was real fun to intimate like them and of course this also leads to many bad habit, exactly what we called 一板王, really a syndrome watching too much tennis matches on tele.

http://www.tennislegendondvd.com/tennislegendonDVDcomAgassi91.jpg The famous fluorescent 熒光 clothing from Agassi, back then it was very very cool, but can you still stand it now?

Technology like Wilson PWS, Hammer, Prince Cross Bar, Head Suspension Handle Systems, Nike Air, Reebok Pump Court Victory were all emerging from the 80s, we have been chasing just for those new terms and equipments and hoping it will improve our game instead of improving our own tennis skill.

I remembered the first time attending Wimbledon, watching 20 years old Sampras plays on side court while he’s not even THAT famous, Jim vs Jim (Connors vs Courier) wow…it’s just eye opening to watch it live.

Do you visit http://www.80s-tennis.com all the time? If you do, then you are one of us who may still live in the 80s.

大家還記得當年每次期待下一期<奪標>有網球明星封面的那種興奮心情嗎﹖買到後﹐即時快速翻到有講網球那頁﹐連一個字也不放過的讀完整篇文章﹐才覺得發下列心頭大石。

可能我形容的戲劇話了些﹐但那種心情真的差不多。

It’s not like nowadays, just Google and click click click, everything is so easy to obtain.
Back then, it was an era without the Internet, we are eager to learn anything related to Tennis. haha…feels so satified by then.

Anyway, tennis game has changed a lot since 20 years ago, almost no pro will serve and approach the net, racquets are much powerful and stiff than before.

Like others said, I also agree there isn’t much Classic Pro these days, Federer is one of the exceptional though, it’s almost becoming an art watching those 80s/90s pro playing on court, as back then, tennis ball travels at a slower speed, so you can actually see the tactic, spin and various interesting stuff, today, seemed top spin over rule everything.

A  good example is Nadal, it’s not a negative thing, Nadal plays excellent, but it’s just boring to watch in my own opinion comparing to before. (預左比人插,但請不要太用力)

Finally, I would recommend everyone to take a look at this:

It’s what Class is! Old vs New (Federer vs Sampras), what a @#$#@ great match!!!

I love to play with this kind of stuff very much!

Everything fits nicely within a tiny 1/4 rack!
