Seriously - a thread involving 3.5 tennis gets big bold red lettering? This blog becomes more of a joke every day.
Lifetime wins of course.
will Gerber's groin be healed up? Or will he rip something else?
let's get some vote going! hey, admins, can you add it?
Nothing wrong with Gerber's groin, fit as a fiddle.The question is, where has Ratcliffe been hiding, it seems that he gone back to being his usual vagina self and clammed up.Ok, Klamecki has been given the option of who he wants to play at singles, and his choices are likely Jones or Yaremenko. How about you Ratcliffe, take your pick in doubles, anyone except big bird, who's it gonna be?
Ratcliffe,Who you sending against Bennett/Arcaria? Are you gonna send your best line to play them or are you scared?
Does anyone have a guess to the line-ups?
Ratcliffe, thanks for the offer and I take you for a man of your word. I choose to play Larry Lipsie. I look forward to making the beanie fly like a frisbie.Make it happen.LT BL
There you go with your first mistake by taking Ratcliffe at his word. Do you really think he will do that?
Heard Bennet was out for Sunday. Is that true?
Yeah, Bennett is out, has an appointment at Jenny Craig so Gerber is playing with Arcaria. Heard Chris Jones is out this week, what gives?
The only thing Bennett is out to is "out to lunch" probably an all you can eat buffet!
Even if Bennett just finished an all you can eat he and Arcaria would still beat any 3.5 doubles team out there. Bring on the food and bring on the opponets. Bennett and Arcaria rock.
Does Lipsie make the lineup this week? That is scarry if that hack is one Huffines top 8! Huffines has the great 3 players, a couple solid players, and then scraps like Lipsie!
Just keep that sushi slicing, fly swatting Sam Bert off the tennis courts on Sunday. I will be there to watch the match and if I have to watch that guy play tennis again like I did at the Plano Open I will puke! An absolute embarrasement to 3.5 tennis!
the only embarrassment to tennis is you and your LFT 3.5 team who have zero sportsmanship and are total egoistic assholes.
Are both teams going to have all their best players?
almost. one or two players are out on each side.
Anon 12:31Believe it or not (probably not), but Gerber is a real nice guy. He does have an ego but no where near what he shows on the blog. Also, Kaiser is a real nice guy as are all the LTF guys. I am sure Sunday will be a great match and may the best team win on that day, and may the loser win the QT and hopefully have a rematch in Cities!
Safin just knocked out of Wimbledon. I wonder who's team he will be on this weekend as a self rate.
Also, why are you blaming LTF for that above statement?
Haha! Thank god there is only 1 match left in the season, Ed may have convinced Safin to play for Huffines team as a self rate with his old junior buddy, Oleg.
HP vs BH, who wins?
BH, of course!
BH 3-2Huffines 3-2
BH 4-1Hfn 4-1
The Big Turd is not a very good captain. So I have to pick Huffines to win a close one.
Match of the Century? Puhlease. Huffhines wins 4-1. Sweeps singles and 2 lines of doubles. Kaiser checks into AA after this.
I agree, kaiser in AA, gerber in EOC (ego out of control) and benett in biggest loser. Oh and Oleg in LA (liars anonymous). I dont either Huffines or ltf can beat Garland so who cares?
I used to think OC/LT/FW BL was pathetic, after seeing this thread all doubt has been removed.
agree. garland is far superior to both huffines and lifetime. those guys just dont know it yet.
Huffines is going to win. It is going to be close but they are going to win.
What time is the match?
I wonder if Marc has the guts to play singles? I doubt it.
Great picture Marc!lol suits the occasion perfectly!
Safin just lost at wimbledon and I heard he is on his way to texas to play #1 singles for Huffhines.
If Kaiser and Ratcliffe were to play the advantage would go to Huffhines. Ratcliffe 2-0 Kaiser 0-2 in league matches but don't bet on either one of them playing!!!
This is going to be a great match! Where’s the match and at what time?
The match is at Huffhines at 2PM Sunday June 28th. See everyone there!!!
Hey Klamecki, Chris Jones or Oleg Yaremenko are waiting for you if you have the Balls to play Singles this weekend.Since previously stated you can beat either one of them. Let"s find out!!!
I will be there. Looks like a great match. Sisk and I will have a beer off. I drink 1 beer for every set dropped by LTF. Sisk has to drink one beer for every set dropped by Huffines. Marc - once again GREAT PIC!!! Your graphics are only outdone by your own next graphics. Nice job. This should be a great match
Bmo, what makes you think that Sisk is rooting for huffines?
Looks like lifetime singles players are in some kind of funk, they got swept by a very weak team from DCC, one average singles player and one doubles only player against the ltf studs. Not a very good showing by ltf...
Ed, hopefully you will have some balls to play your number 1 doubles line against Arcaria/Bennett or are you going to chicken out?
Well - I am not going to root for Huffines. Sisk can't make it though. He said something about playing tennis at Samuel Grand and an old fashioned game of dodge the bullets and muggers or something like that.
BMO -Since I am evidently going off to AA after the match anyway, I will have a beer for every set lost and every set won for both teams !! Ed - have your cooler stacked deep! See you Sunday!
Predictions!Flight AHuffines 3-2 over LTF (Match of the Century) HP 3-2 over BH (Upset!!)DCC 4-1 over HackberryStonebridge 3-2 over LB HoustonFlight BGarland 4-1 over SamGrandWestlake 4-1 over LB HoustonHP 4-1 over OCStonebriar 3-2 over GHFlight CGH 4-1 over OC Lakes 3-2 over SPCC 4-1 over VillageGlen Eagles 4-1 over BHI would not be shocked if LTF won 3-2 either. It will be close either way! Winner to City, loser to QT and HP will get 3rd in an upset! Garland won Flight B, Westlake gets 2nd, HP gets 3rd. Flight C is a bit more interesting, GH will win the flight, Fretz will get 2nd, and the Lakes will get 3rd by the difference of sets lost to CC. That will be as close as it gets!Good luck everyone, still a number of teams alive for QT!
Votes 18-18, closest poll we have had in a long time. I would assume Huffines will get slightly more votes in the end because of all the LTF haters!
No, Ed knows he doesn't have anyone to beat Arcaria and Bennett. All he does is go for both singles with his ringers and then play his bes doubles team at line 3. If Gerber wins at singles then Lifetime wins 3-2.
I think Arcaria and Bennett play line 2 or 3 this week because Huffines will put a weak line at 1 doubles.
Arcaria and Bennett get too much credit!!! They will get killed any line they play against HFN.
Win or lose, I'm gonna put a tennis ball right up BBF's kiester. If he doesn't play, his true color (vagina pink) will show. He has no excuse cause he himself listed himself as one of his top 10 players. And one of their players will be out. At least Kaiser never made that claim.
I agree with anon 9:39am."B and A" from LTF will beat any Huffines team EASILY. Also LTF has a slight edge in all the other doubles lines.To win, Huffines must take BOTH singles and somehow eek out a doubles win.If big-ego Gerber can win his line, then Huffines is toast. If Huffines can take both singles then it will be hard for LTF to sweep all three doubles and Huffines may win 3-2.IT ALL DEPENDS ON GERBER.
If it all depends on me, put us down for the win.Gerber
One thing I must say about Gerber, he performs best under pressure. When the matches don't mean didley, he is easily bored. That is also why he enjoys singles or doubles.Can't wait til Sunday!
meant to say singles over doubles..
Line #3 singles exhibition matchBig Bird vs.Grandpamake it happen
That would be like a side stage circus act!
What's LTF's Best line up?1# Gerber2# Klemecki1# bennett/arcadia2# demetsenare/chan3# hamaty/anderson
What's HUFFS Best line up?1# oleg2# jones1# holly/moore2# anderson/robins3# molina/rietzer
Why don't both captains just put out the lines now, agree and play no games. That way people can strategize and this thread will become real interesting.That would be a first and pretty cool. After all, loser still makes playoffs so it's not like all is lost for the loser of this match.
There goes that big Gerber ego again. "Put us down for the win"... I wonder if he said that last week before his match? By the way anon 2, there is no way stonebridge beats GH in flight be this weekend.
Bert has played line 2 all season with the same partner. Anderson plays with Moore or lipsie and then molina and reitzer.
IF THEY DID THAT i DOUBT THEY WOULD STICK TO IT.
Who cares about gh and stonebriar anyways. And gh will lose, that is not the good gh team!
Did Gerber's match last week mean anything? LTF had already won 3 lines with the default right when Gerber's tie break started. You obviously can't read, and Stonebridge is not playing GH either.
Burt's partner is out
Is that the same partner from Smokey and the Bandit?
Can you imagine playing as Bert's doubles partner. You'd have to wear a metal shark suit to prevent from being sliced to death by your own teamate.
Bert only slices and dices because no one can figure out how to handle it. If I was him, I would just keep doing it. Seems to be working!
yes it's working greathe's a 3.5 lifer.If he ever wants to get better he will have to develop his game.He could not get out of the first round of a 4.0 tournament
yes, he could. Look at John (jack) smithheisler... no different from Sam Burt and John is able to win many matches at 4.0 with his fucked-up game
What would be Garlands lineup verses these 2 teams lineup when it comes to city?
Sisk versus everyone.
Where is Ed Ratty?The biggest match of the season and he is no where to be found!
Didnt know Sisk was that good!
Seems like Lifetime is doing all the talking. Is it because they really don't think they are going to Win??? I Guess Huffhines will let their play speak for itself.Win or Lose Lifetime talks too much that"s why they are hated by almost everyone.Cheap Talk doesn"t win tennis matches performance does.We"ll find out soon enough.
Talking has them 7-0! Whether they win or lose they are winning! Your point is meaningless.
To Whoever posted Huffhines best line-up Are you from outer space?? Robins is a $,0 and Holy has not played 1 match.Is he their secret weapon??? Or is it Dorris
I think you are underestimating how many people are rooting against Huffhines. Ratcliffe has proven to be a hypocrite that has now convieniently bent the rules because of dreams of winning. Jones and Oleg should not be playing 3.5 tennis and I hope they are not rewarded by having playoff success.
I don't think Huffhines has any weak doubles teams. What the hell are you talking about. All their teams seem to be pretty good. How can you possibly think they are scared to play anybody.Check their records.They will probably stick with players that play together.Who said they are going to be missing players?? Do you really believe that????
Going to be a great match, I'd love to be there drinking with BMO and Kaiser. At 3pm we will have our hands full vs. SG. I like members on both sides and wish them well. I do think if LT tries to load up to win all three doubles,that would be a mistake. I do think Oleg and Chris win singles. No offense to Alan/Marc, it's just my opinion. Bennett/Arcaria is the strongest line on Sunday. HAVE FUN MEN
Are you out of your mind comparing Sam Bert and Jack Smithheisler. They are complete opposites. Sam is a slicer and Jack is a 10 feet over the net pusher (no offense Jack). I have played them both and the one thing they have in common is that they both get a lot of balls back in play. Jack is playing great and is getting better every week. Hopefully next year Jack can play on the 3.5 Huffines team.
Lifetime is the best 3.5 team of all time. Lifetime will kill Garland once they kill Huffines. I am just telling the truth. With Klamaki on their team they are unbeatable. No doubts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chris J. and Oleg Y. have as much right to be playing 3.5 as Marc K. and Gerber. They are all sand bagging ringers. But I guess that is what you need to win.
they are all ringers but NOT sandbagging or NOT cheating! They are all computer rated 3.5s! Good luck to them all and have great matches!
Sam and Jack are both pushers. That's why I compared them to each other. if you watch their matches, you notice that their games are so similar. I would say Sam's is better as he has mean slice on the ball and Jack has nothing... just a push... If Sam tries harder, he can have better 4.0 record than Jack and his buddy Oleg!
To ANON 9:23 You must have too much too drink like Kaiser did to think that. Your CRAZY!!!
Huffines doubles are not weak _ they are pretty good. However, LTF doubles are clearly stronger at all three lines. To have ANY chance Huffines must sweep both singles and "luck out" with one of the doubles.
Word is, Klamecki/Gerber will be playing doubles. They played Bennett/Arcaria the other night and kicked their asses.
These anons think they have a clue what is going with Huffines and LTF and they have zero idea!Huffines does have solid doubles across the board and the LTF doubles teams will have to play well to beat them, just as the Huffines singles will need to play well to beat the LTF singles players.
Some of you anon idiots have no idea what you are talking about! Just looked up arcaria/bennett and they are undefeated at line one all season. Although I couldnt come up with one of there wins against anybody who is any good (playoff teams) so far, so imo the jury is still out.Not sure if lt bl is going to be playing doubs or singles this week but should be good at either one. Gerber on the other hand (for ltf sake) better be playing singles as I have seen him play doubles and he is terrible! I am not pulling for either team, just hope for a good match!
I agree with anon, lifetime seems to be doing all of the "talking", that's what people do when they are scared of actually playing. Although I do beleive that big Ed is doing some of the talking also but is doing so anonymously!
If ratty has been playing "his best" doubles line at 3 all season why dosent kaiser but the ringers bennett/arcaria up against them this week and see what happens?
I do not see how LTF is doing all the talking, there is plenty of LTF bashing and you know alot of it is from Huffines!
Sisk, Your comment makes no sense. First you say that it would be a mistake for lft to load up at doubles, then you say that huff will win both singles agains marc and alan? What the hell are you trying to say?Confused.
Big john,You are correct you will have your hands full at sam grand... trying not to get shot, stabbed or broken into. But then again you are from Garland so you should be used to that!
Your are right Bennett/Arcaria have not really played anybody, but their matches have not even been close either, almost all are 6-0, 6-1, or 6-2. In tournaments they have played a couple decent teams, but we will see waht they are made of this weekend. Huffines should be a challenge.
he knows the weaknesses of his protege'....he wants ltf to lose so he wants them to play klamecki at singles where there is a shot he can get beat. at doubles paired with one of their other players, he is a more likely sure win. huffhines singles players can't play doubles well, that is the difference.
Jones and Yaremenko are good, but are by no means unbeatable. LTF has the singles that can beat them if they play well.
8:34 am, where exactly was it you saw Gerber playing doubles? I see he's played once this season with Chan and they won quite easily against a solid Stonebridge team. I also see he won the consolation dubs recently at the Plano Open with a questionable (based on record) partner. Speak up instead of posting useless info.
Jones and Gerber have not played any 4.0 singles matches in tournaments or league,both klemecki and oleg have, and can compete at the level,should be pretty even,
Anon 9:10I watched some of the Plano Open and to me it looked as though his partner was carrying Gerber!
Stephen and I have never played Marc and Alan. Nice source of information!
That's a good 1.
Kim Anderson is a solid 3.0 and will be captaining next seasons LTF 3.5 team.
blah, blah, blah...
Hey Tweety, get to work, the Queen hasn't gotten her monthly check yet and is psst off.
That is not true, I am going to captain the 3.5 team and will be providing racquets for the whole team. So ya'll better get use to the two handles quick.
i like both huffines and lifetime and i know the players on both teams. this will be a real good match. it could be 3-2 either way.i think huffines will win both singles. it wont be easy but they are a little better. Bennett and Arcaria are easily the best 3.5 doubles team in dallas and will definitely win a line for ltf. that means that lft will need to also win the other two doubles lines. i think ltf does have the edge in all the doubles lines and they should prevail 3-2.best wishes to both teams.
The Lifetime & Huffines Match is going to be a very close match. The winner of the match will have to at least win one singles match. No way can either team take the win by winning all three double matches. The real wild card will be the temperature / heat and which team has the will to win. It’s going to be very hot on Sunday afternoon. Hopefully both teams have been drinking a lot of water this week.
Gerber is really a doubles player. At times, he just doesn’t know where or what he should be doing. Gerber is better off playing singles.
Someone needs to do more homework.Molina beat Jones in the final of Waco. Jones did not start playing singles until recently. He was full time doubles for Oak Creek. He even played doubles on the Oak Creek 4.0 last year. Just keep that in mind. Ed has a few hands he can play. He could always put Molina in at #2 singles just to mess with people minds. It's kind of nice to have 2 of the top 5 3.5 singles players in the state at your disposal.
oh yeah and one more thing about Huffines...Oleg is the #13 ranked 4.0 singles player in the state. This match will be great. Is someone bringing a grill? Let's just hope that no one bites an ear off on a change over.
Those singles players are good, but state rankings mean nothing. Those guys play in every tournament and MZ. They collect alot of points doing that, hence they have a very high ranking, but like I said, it means nothing!! They are good and I am not diminishing that, but please do not bring up state rankings!
I think all the ears should be safe as I dont think Prather will be there...
well, 650 people in 4.0 are ranked in the state of Texas... Being in the top means they won matches! So, yes, it means something.
What it means is that he's a cheating sack of shit and should be disqualified and embarrassed to be playing 3.5. Those humm jobs that Ratdick gives him must be really something.
I don't hear anyone talking about LTF's Igor Abadzic. He's a self rate who's played 2 singles matches and won. He was Line 1 over Gerber one of those weeks. Could the crafty Kaiser (ha ha) be holding him back for this match or the playoffs?
Here is the list of the most cheating captains in the metroplex, starting with the least to most morals;1. Bender (Yoda)2. Sisk (John Candy)3. Ratcliffe (Bitter Beer Face)4. Hill (Ghandi)5. Kraemer (Bobby the Jew)6. Pickett (Icepick)7. Somabut (Slumdog)8. Cory (Nancy)9. Kaiser (Big Bird)10. Alzurro (Lippy Renata)Moderators, can we please get a poll up on this, you may break a record with the hits.
If you think winning a MZ is nothing you are wrong. Winning one match on a weekend is one thing. Winnig six matches in a row in weekend is tough.
actually there are very few cheaters but many, many crybabies
Only cheaters win! I want on that list!
yes. we should rename it "3.CRY Final Week "
This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.
looks like we have one asshole complaining about cheaters probably because he gets his ass kicked regularly.dallas teams historically have not performed very well at sectionals and we have sent fewer than our fair share of teams to nats. we have good players at every level but very few are truly out of level.but we do have a few world class whiners that like to post on this blog.
Anon 1:48pm. Being ranked means nothing. Sure he may play some good matches, but if you play in 6 or 7 tourneys and have a 10-10 record then you win some consolation but you get points for every tourney that you enter. Likely losing first round, winning 1 or 2 rounds of conso, then losing again in conso. That means nothing!Instead, look how far he gets in each tourney and more importantly WHO has he beaten in 4.0 (ranked player, local good Dallas 4.0, etc). That dictates the level of play and I don't see any of that.Agree with other anon....winning a major of 6 or 7 matches in a weekend is very very tough. Kudos if you do that or have done that.Anon 2:41. Take a deep breath before you reply and think for a minute. Tourney play and league play don't cross over wins/losses and computer info until the end of each year. Mid year bumps are just based on league info. Bazan a 4.0? Cary will even tell you he doesn't belong there, especially at singles. But, he is getting better.
//////////////////Michael Jackson has just died in Los Angeles! Unbelievable!///////////////////
the world is now a better place
everyone knows Bazan is no 4.0 player. He is a mid 3.5 to a strong 3.0 He just captains himself and positions himself with stronger players to get the wins.
Regarding tourney players vs once a week players. This weekend could show us the difference in the two. The LT vs Huff match is at 2pm on Sunday. This will be right in the middle of the heat. If you look at Huff team you will see people like M. Anderson, S. Bert, E Molina, Oleg, and C. Jones who have played quite a few tourneys and each has won a tourney. This might favor Huff in the heat because each of these guys has played 5 or 6 matches in a 3 day period.
Hey Klamecki, When you got bumped to 4.0 and appealed to 3.5 some people on these boards called you a pussy. Your reasoning was that you were curious if your rating was appealable and that you had no plans of playing 3.5. You even told everyone not to worry, you would never play down. Well look at you now!!!
YES, KAISER AND KLAMECKI (ALONG WITH MOST OF THEIR LFT TEAMMATES) ARE THE BIGGEST HYPOCRITES, LIARS, AND CRYBABIES!
That Bazan guy does suck. So bad I won at 4.0 and 4.5 last weekend. :) I plan on doing the same this weekend. I am just getting warmed up for July and August when the real league tennis season starts, I know most of you whiny bitches stop playing in June and sometimes May.Igor is no ringer by the way I beat him 2 and 3. nice guy though.I have to cheer for Alan though since he beat me, I am gearing up for a rematch though.
Hey Cary,Don't listen to all these anons. It's funny how they like to call people out, call you liars, hypocrits, etc., yet they don't post a name by their post. I would say the ultimate in hypocrisy.Anytime you want to play just let me know and congrats on the wins!Gerber
Some of you anons look so stoopid and ignorant with your post. Tell me how LTF is hypocritical by cheating? Tell us how they are cheating? They have all computer rates and a self rate who in the correct level. You are just a jealous piece of shit!
anon 5:53 amYou are exactly right. Same can be said for Huffines. We have almost all computer rated players on both teams. Only assholes cliam "cheating" because they have a mental disorder.
BEST USTA LEAGUE CAPTAINSLEVEL 3.0 / BENDERBest captain in Dallas over last 10 years and maybe in the country. Has the most trips to Sectionals & Nats. (Anyone no how many?) Crafty at handling his line-up and known for getting the most from his players.LEVEL 3.5 and 4.0 / SISKBest captain in Dallas TODAY. Excellent recruiter and great guy. Players are loyal and have fun. Handles his line-up well - routinely out smarting other captains. His teams play their best under pressure. Currently has top teams in both 3.5 and 4.0LEVEL 4.0 / SOMABUTOutstanding recruiter, good sport and his guys love to play for him. He has dominated level 4.0 in Dallas for many years but often falls short at Sectionals. Some guys question his line-up decisions in big matches.LEVEL 4.5 / BRANCHHas totally dominated 4.5 competition in Dallas for many years - but has not had success at Sectionals. Tough, competitve and smart. An excellent recruiter. I hope he takes Sectionals this year!LET THE ASSHOLES WHINE, THESE CAPTAINS ARE ALL GREAT & THEY PLAY BY THE RULES.UP & COMERS on their way to LT success:BazanHillRatcliffeNoel
To Anons who defend cheating LFT...He is how your captain and some of your players are hypocrites. They accuse others of cheating and sandbagging while that's exactly what they do themselves!!!Take Gerber. The guy is very good tennis player and has just beaten a 4.0 player (bazan) who claims to have wins at 4.0 and 4.5 just this past weekend(s). Gerber easily beats the guy in two sets - 1 and 5. Of course, if this would be a real league match, Gerber would throw the match in... as he has already done this season! Hypocrite? YESTake Klamecki. He said before he is too good for 3.5s and he will never play even if he gets bumped down. Well, here he is, playing in 3.5 tennis. Liar and hypocrite? YESTake Kaiser. He knows that Gerber is out of the level as well as Klamecki. He knows that some of his players are very good and he hid them for the entire season! So, is he not a hypocrite?! Oh, he only sees 4.0 talent on other teams? What a liar! and really bad one...
Gerber was not bumped after the Fall season you jackass!! Gerber is a computer rated 3.5, end of stort there is nothing hypocritical about it. He has been a computer rate for a couple seasons, no appeal down, nothing! He is a good 3.5 player and will probably be bumped after this season. he is not way out of level, never played college, never self rated out of level. Get over it you clown!
Hey 7:09 a.m., Why don't you sign your name so we can have conversation between men, or are you a mouse?I am not going to speak for anyone else and could care less about who's cheating or who's not. I will play whomever they put in front of me, and if I am asked by Kaiser to play doubles I will gladly do so. But please stop talking ignorant crap about me being out of level. I started playing tennis 3 years ago and have worked my ass off to get better. I have not appealed or done anything of the sort. And I have never thrown a match nor will I ever throw a match. Say what you want, but if your gonna accuse me of crap, either give some credible info and post your name, otherwise, the crap you put out is meaningless and you are a more than a mouse, a pussy is more like it.Gerber
How does Garland match up with Huffines and LTF?
I am NOT from Life Time. But LTF has a bunch of good guys and excellent players. None are out of level. We just have some whining asshole trolling our blog.
Probably the same guy whining about Huffines that is whining about LTF! Someone that wishes they had something to play for this weekend and weekends to come.
Whoever that is has to be both dumb and crazy. The craziest thing that he said is that "Gerber beat a 4.0 player". Anyone that has seen Cary play knows that he is not a 4.0 player.
Oh, so now we determine tennis level based on "looks"?? So, if you have ugly strokes, you can't be 4.0?Bazan has just beaten some dudes rated 4.0 and 4.5. I don't care how his games "looks" on the court. If someone beats (especially as easy as straight 1 and 5) someone like bazan, then that person is not 3.5.Gerber, stop holding back and play your real level. I am sure you can beat whomever you play this weekend. Just beat them, don't sandbag, PLEASE! And move the hell up from 3.5s. And go join Eddie, egomaniac!
We have the Blog Moron posting!! It is not how someone looks, it is their game. Cary's ability is a 3.5!
Ignor this idiot! It is probably Lippy Renata (aka Alzuro, the worst 3.5 player ever)!!
I'll say one thing, this blog is good for a laugh or two!Gerber
kaiser and ratclife,why are you so quiet? no trash talk before your shitty match? post your line ups! let us tell you all about them
Anon 10:35AMDon't worry, if Gerber or whomever beats one of Huffines singles players, they will be an automatic bump up to 4.0
I heard klemecki ruptured his achilles and is out for sunday
I heard Obama is passing a tax on all 3.5 jicky sandbaggers, you better fess up and move up now!
Don"t worry Gerber will not win in singles that"s why he is going to play doubles.The only thing Klamecki ruptured was his tongue!!!!
Huffines vs LTF -> not that big a deal.1) The loser advances to the QT and will easily win. No matter what happens this weekend, BOTH teams will make the DCC2) In the DCC BOTH teams will lose handily to Garland
I agree with the above, the loser of the match will actually get more of their money's worth and keep more of their guys at the 3.5 level.
I would stop short of naming Sisk as one of the great 4.0 captains. His team won thier flight. That's all. Let's see if they make it out of the City Championships before we start comparing him to Somabut or anyone else. He has put together a good team. Let's just wait awhile so we can see how good.
How does Sisks 3.5 roster matchup with Huffines and LTF? The last 2 posters say Garland will beat the other 2 teams with all their ringers?
If Klambaker actually ruptured his achilles he is out for a long time and after the rude statements he has made about permanent 3.5s, that will bring you down a level.
I heard Lipsie popped a hamstring, running around his half of the court after he won a point last night!!!!
Your not really stupid enough too believe anything is wrong with Klamecki are you just another LIE!!!!
Lipsie also lost his voice after screaming in celebration that he won a point at 15-15 on a ball that hit the tape and trickled over!!!!!!
gerber dislocated his shoulder patting himself on the back
oh great Gerber is a 5.0 when he uses his other arm!
I can"t wait for this match to be over so all you idiots can stop making stupid comments,What a bunch of Jerks. The players are going to decide who wins the match not all your comments!!!!
wow, there is a brilliant comment. the players will determine the outcome not the blog comments. someone alert the media about this wonderful discovery!
Actually, Gerber dislocated his shoulder spanking your wife's fat ass. And who the hell is Clambaker, nice name.
Hey this is Kaiser and I've had a couple shots of tequila, beats this tennis bullshit. One thing is for sure, if I hear Ratcliffe cheering on the sidelines like a little cheerleading bitch, I'm gonna slap him so hard his dentures will end up at Sammuel Grand. And we all know they won't last but 5 minutes in that hood before some other toothless wonder is wearing them. Man I am actually so not looking forward to playing at that hell hole Huffines. Luckily I have a bud with bullet proof vests so don't be surprised when our team shows up wearing them.Big Bird
Hate to say it, but based on athleticism, Ratcliffe probably takes Big Bird in a throwdown
Perhaps so, but Ratdick is gonna have to go for his knees to take him down, cause at 5'3", no way he reaches Kaiser's mug.
Ratcliffe is a more knowledgable captain than Kaiser. Both are good guys.
what i cant figure out is how why ltf allows kaiser to be their captain? the guys a dork and not too bright. at some point thats going to hurt the team. ltf always has strong teams and excellent players. why dont they find a decent cap?
Being a captain is not the easiest thing in the world, and as previously mentioned, you have to be an a-hole and be willing to piss people off in order to be successful. There are always going to be people that want to play every week and will be psst off at somebody when they don't. Or they think they are better then somebody else playing or have other opinions on lineups, etc. etc. So Kaiser may be a dork, but he's also doing the best with what he has. But the ltf team will likely be breaking up after this season so any volunteers that have the above attributes are welcome to step up to the podium.
I am not sure why you guys are getting all worked up about the huff/ltf match. It will be a no contest. There is absolutly not way ltf can win a singles line, they might be lucky not to get double bageled. Hell the great gerber couldnt even beat sam burt. I dont know that much about igor but he will be in big trouble as well. It should come down to doubles and its really hard to sweep all three doubs lines.
LTF vs Huffrines -> not that big a deal. both will end up in the dcc. then they will battle to see which team finishes 2nd place behind garland.
Does Dallas 3.5 get to send a wild card to Sectionals this year? Have those bastards at the Texas Secvtion told us yet???
Mr. 9:27AM, you sound like the perfect capt. in your own description. You sound like an ass hole, and probably think you are better than you are! Why dont you volunteer for the job, sounds like a perfect fit.
LTF could do a lot better. That's pretty obvious.
Mr. 4:20 pm, thanks for the vote of confidence, but I already captain a 3.5 team which is exactly why I know what it takes.Ratcliffe
I haven't looked at the 3.5 blog in a long time but what else is there to do at 6am on a Sunday morn. How can I not be in the top 10 of cheatin captains? I had the biggest ringer in 4.0 tennis in recent history last season.
when and where is QT and City? Not sure where to find this.
Playoffs are July 10 - 12City Championships July 17-19Where - various locations (Brookhaven, LBH, etc)
only true way to rank top captains is by # of times they have made sectionals and nats. that's what everyone is playing for.sp/jim,im sure you are a great cap. how many teams have u taken to sectionals and nats?
THIS IS THE WAY OF USTA LEAGUE TENNISGreat captains win our local competition and take their teams on to Sectionals and sometimes Nats. Disgruntled and jealous assholes call them cheaters. The more victories you earn the more the whiners cry!
Never taken a team to nat'ls. Sr team missed sectionals this year for the first time in 4 years. Our reg. 4.0 team has been to sectionals last 2 years.
But Jim, I heard you're also going to nationals later this year in mixed 8.0. Is this true?
Huffhines won 3-2. Swept singles and won line 3 dubs.
Looks like big-ego Gerber got wacked!
SP Jim,You cant be considered a first class cheater until you make nats. but we give you points for good effort.
Wow, looks like a 3rd set tiebreaker on line 3 doubles was the difference.
no team ever goes anywhere that can't hold at least 1 preferably both singles lines. Beginner team tennis 101.
no whinning . . . Huffines won fair and square.
Anon 6/24 1:49 pmGREAT ANALYSIS. U ARE THE BEST!
I heard Marc K. did not play singles like first thought. I wonder if Marc would have been more of a challenge for Chris Jones. Gerber's game was a game of a pushing the ball. Big first serve and push and push and push and never take any risk. Wow, if pushing is the way to win I rather go for my shots and miss some but go out like a man.
I wonder how Chris Jones, from Huffines, will match up against Garlands self-rated players. Doubles is going to be the key.
Great tennis from both Lifetime and Huffines. It was fun to watch some good tennis. You can feel the pressure from both teams. It was like a Davis Cup Tie. Not bad for a recreational tennis match.
