    Well, Der_Echte took hiz creeky-azz knees and other assorted body parts to the Sacramento Tourney.

    Since wife stated she needed the Volvo, my means of transportation was bike. Twas 30 km one way to venue, arrived, secured bike, got into tourney.

    Promptly put on knee sleeves, shoes, did a warmup and doubles it was. Got to finals in my doubles event, stuff got dicey after we were up 2-0 and got down 2-7 in the 5th, but I realized I had to go all out attack mode and did it. We got deuce and won on an error.

    One of my rated events I finished middle like I should by rating. Scared the A player kid, won first game I thought he thought his dad waz gunna flog him. Won my second event group, lost my elimination match in 5th vs a kid girl I barely won, came back form 0-2 in that match, in the crossover match, I led her 2-0 and she ended up winning, I had many unfortunate points (she got a lot of net) but over all, she did not give up and that was important. I won vs her brother and likely next year he will win vs me.

    I am only getting older and creekier. I played with a couple knee injuries and by the time I did last match, it was the 7th hour of tourney. My age and condition do not help me perform at that kinda stage, plus I was unfit to compete my best, but I still played as best I could. I certainly wasn't physically ready for this tourney, not mentally, but I coped and performed well overall. That part is encouraging when I regain better injury recovery and fitness.

    I had a post match meal with some close friends. I could barely get up, let alone ride another 30, but I got it done and got home safe without running over any squirrels or getting run over by traffic.

    Oh... even funnier is all of us close friends met up at the Russian Church for 5 hours of TT... I placed my roller bag with all my bats (all 20 of them) behind my wagon, went back in Church for my haversack (it held the car keys), someone gave me some apples, I put those in the car and drove off, leaving the roller bag with all those precious bats !!

    So, at midnight, I had to construct a new bat form some blades and rubbers I had lying around in the garage. Luckily, I had some Nittaku wood OFF Mono Blades 90g+, so an MX-k and FX-S combo was familiar and about as best I could make for the tourney. They worked out just fine, I did not miss shots because I was using something other than my main bat. I missed shots later, because I waz flat out wore out. Glad I kept those in garage.

    Went back to the Russian Church Monday for some hours of TT... my roller bag was stored upright next to the building one meter from where I had abandoned it. Everything intact. Had a blast my former national player Romanian friend had visited. We went at it and LDM7 caught some action too.

    Hey! My friend with double pimples have just started a tiktok account. Fun to watch how a good player trains, last year he played the highest leaugue. Also very interesting for players using short pimples on either side.

    https://www.tiktok.com/@antonander97

    He wants me to subscribe but i feel like i am to old for tikotok, but please subscribe haha!
    Or atleast enjoy the videos!

    The creaky knees have been improving the past 2 weeks with almost daily 30 km bike ride and tennis or TT without explosive first step. I have played tennis twice and TT once without my protective knee sleeves. I think I have turned the corner on my injuries, but I have to be very careful not to explode right waya, at any time I can re-injure the mcl right back to a grade 2 or worse... yet the last few weeks have been very encouraging. I think another 2 weeks I will almost be there to 80-90 percent healed.

    Took a field trip to 888 TTC in San Fran Bay Area. Saw elite league, visited busy coach Brandon Lee. Ate at a Korean BBQ that was a winner run by a lady my generation (means she is real old). Took LD7 along for the ide and he saw an eyeful, much data for him to process.
