Adidas Barricade V White/Signal Green

By admin, June 17, 2010 22:50

Many thanks for my friend who got me the tennis shoes I loved the most at a great bargain from Addias outlet last month.

Now I can finally throw away my old pair of Barricade V White/Black as it has been wore to a big hole in my right toe after 15 months. I personally still do not like Barricade VI (aka B6) as it’s just not my cup of tea in terms of style and weight, I do hope Addias can keep B5 for a long time to come.

神級兵器再現江湖

By admin, June 15, 2010 11:34

今天經過旺角一間pro-shop突然發現這兩只經典的神級兵器被店主隨便的仍在了地下﹐當然價錢一點也不便宜﹐全都要$2000以上。我當然沒買﹐離開的時候仍然依依不舍﹐總覺得店主不了解歷史﹐沒好好看待這兩只這麼罕見的神兵。

Prince Graphite Long body – Michael Chang

By admin, June 1, 2010 20:43

This is the 4th generation of Prince Graphite, the 1st generation is the one with one strip and no grommet, the following 2 generations are 4-strips with grommet, 2nd generation is printed with “110″ on top, then “oversize” on top for the 3rd. Being the 4th generation, it’s a 28 inch long body (probably world’s 1st long body back then in early 1990s) and Michael Chang reached his highest ATP ranking of #2 using this racket. I spotted this precious weapon in a local pro shop and bought for one of my tennis partner. 

In fact, for 2nd and 3rd generations, there are three different head sizes, mid (90), mid-plus (100) and oversize (107), this 4th generation head size is actually even larger than oversize (107) which is being truly 110.

Personally, I found everyone will enjoy the power of this long body for serving, but it’s just too stiff for me, I still prefer the Prince Original Graphite (aka. POG or the 2nd and 3rd generation of its family.

Once in a lifetime: Sampras & Federer vs Agassi & Nadal at 2010 Indian Wells Tennis

By admin, May 31, 2010 12:53

My friend sent me this link yesterday and I would like to share with everyone.

This is once in a lifetime exhibition Sampras & Federer vs Agassi & Nadal at 2010 Indian Wells Tennis and who else do we see from the crowd? Rod Laver! Oh My!

It’s just a pure pleasure to watch them play, especially with Agassi’s funny talk and skip to 46:23, you will see Federer playing with Nadal’s famous forehand style for fun and he kept saying “So Much Spin”

Btw, in case you didn’t know, Sampras goes to Babolat!, feel sorry for those who bought K88 previously.

Adidas Barricade V Black/Core Teal

By admin, April 27, 2010 22:37

Finally, worth all the waiting since Feb, it looks so cool in reality!

The only problem: it is the last version of Barricade V, really hoping Adidas can keep the tradition of Barricade V forever.

So many 拉力賽專家 around these days.

By admin, March 31, 2010 19:05

We have two new friends tom-yuen and eleclau, many thanks for joining us today!

I think tom-yuen is Wong Sir’s 高徒 , he quickly broke my 節奏, I lost my patience quickly as well and for some reasons, I’ve broken my DF record today (90% !!!) . So the result is very straight forward, 6:0 (love being me of course haha), I enjoy playing with him as he and Wong Sir can really train up our mind and patience, I do look forward to play with these type of 拉力賽專家 in the future. 

Then we played two tie-breaks, I still got many DF, I even changed to the other side of court (so definitely not 風水問題 ), so I figured out no matter how many sets we are going to play, I will just continue to receive eggs if I don’t change something in my game.

I also enjoyed playing with eleclau, he’s young with lots of energy and we had a close game, I am sure he can improve a lot given he only played 2 years and he had already reached a good level.

Strange enough, I have also maintained some of my best 2 serving games today against Dave, that’s right after playing with tom-yuen, and my serving winning ratio is in 70%, these serves are fast, solid and with angle, few aces down the T (My favourite position on ad court)

Of course, I also received 4 straight aces from Dave, that’s when I starting to call him “Ace Serving Machine”, Man! Those 110mph serve is just too good for me.

I really don’t know how to explain the dramatic difference within 1 hour regarding my serve, but I do notice one thing, I BEND MY KNEES and work like a spring which made a huge difference. :)

一個完全不同感受的開心聚會

By admin, March 29, 2010 21:46

今天的開心是與眾不同的﹐而且感覺很奇妙﹐有D怪﹐但還是很好玩。

今天有一堆新朋友(ahwongwongwong, wai_jpm, sureclever & cowbay)加入﹐最為突出的就是friendly1之前提過的ahwongwongwong(黃Sir)﹐另一個令我甘拜下風的前輩。

他的球速並不快(可以說是慢)﹐但打法很奇特﹐stanley112c的正反slide+friendly1對電腳+最重要擁有其特別的贏波方式(回個短球﹐再lob爆你)﹐我試過給他在任何位置都lob過﹐包括網前都lob到我波﹐情形有點像Neil講過的高lob明。嘗試放過他短波或者上網volley時回個大斜角﹐但他仍然可以用閃電的速度衝來救到個波﹐然後又lob到你左右corner位﹔或者救到我認為已經沒救的大斜角﹐回給我的是個更驚喜更斜的大斜角﹐天啊﹐問你死未﹗

原來之前外國朋友Dave早已經跟他打過幾次(世界這麼小)﹐“中國道長”就是他了(阿黃則稱Dave為巨人)﹐他倆打時情形就如街機Final Fight 中國道長VS西洋巨人般好看﹐因為仙風道骨的道長總能以四兩撥千斤的姿態在談笑風生間化解危機﹐轉敗為勝﹗談話中得知黃Sir教物理科目﹐可能他已經成功地把幾十年的物理理論融會貫通到網球裡了﹐怪不得這麼的厲害﹗

同黃Sir打波真是一種心理和身體的嚴峻考驗﹐我輸得心服口服﹐好玩之於﹐還偷到師﹐年過半百仍體力充沛的皇上把很多真正的後生仔都比下去了﹐真令小弟羨慕和慚愧不已﹗

最後還要多謝sureclever借比我試用他的新BLX Tour。Btw, Charles, your serve has improved a lot today, keep up the good work!

Btw, I just came across TB’s post 【香港業餘網球精英杯】單打 DivII now, and found out today’s new friend wai_jpm ranked #1 in Div II A.

今日wai_jpm來的時候極少聽到他講話﹐全場聽到最多的是黃Sir的開朗笑聲。

原來溫靜書生型的他是個隱藏的高手﹗No Wonder !!!

真系打玩宜家先知﹐今天總覺得有些事怪怪地﹐all my questions have been solved now! I can sleep well now.

如果要用一句成語來形容今日﹐莫非“臥虎藏龍”所屬﹗

Happy Tennis 1 year Anniversary Gathering

Many many thanks everyone for joining today’s 1 year anniversary gathering!  

Hope everyone enjoy the day and wish you all like the dessert. 

哎呀﹗我可能昨晚太開心了﹐整晚挂住今日個聚會﹐搞到只睡著了3-4個鐘﹐所以今天狀態真的不大好﹐大部份時間應該是在夢遊﹐用白SIR的話系我今日大部份時間在打邊爐 (ie, 個人有D Sap下Sap下  )。

noddytennis & sl-matthew, nice to meet you, 對不起﹐我初頭到果陣﹐個人還比較迷茫﹐沒能及時認到新朋友。

還有就是收錢的時候對大家說每人大約$40﹐但有幾位話太便宜﹗﹖  ﹐好似沒計算Cake錢﹐情急之下﹐竟然記錯數﹐收左$45一位﹐其實應該是每人大約$41才對﹐小弟先差住你地先$4﹐下次見到面一定扣番 (please kindly remind me)﹐或者請PM你地D恆生/HSBC銀行賬號給我都得。

ie, $50 x 6 (court fee) + $50 (balls) + $96 (cake) = $446 / 11 people = $40.5 ~ $41

最後請PM你地個電郵比我﹐好等我SEND番D靚相比大家。

Last but not least, 多謝阿Neil最後都特登趕來同w00t一齊幫我手Book場。

See you all after Easter Holiday and Happy Tennis!!!
