Tennis Doubles Tournament

indi's picture

My brother Yodhi and I have registered to play doubles at the Singapore Tennis Association's SONY ERICSSON Open 2008 on 3-11 May.

The last time we played in tournament together was perhaps in the 1980s where we toured around Java for junior tournaments. As for me, the last competitive tennis I played was when Ben Metzger and I won the State of Maine 1993 high-school doubles title.

With aging and heavier (and slower!) bodies, we don't plan to win the trophy. We just want to have fun and give younger players a hard time!

How do we get motivated? Well, we got motivated by watching the Bryan Brothers (twin brothers, ranked #1 in the world!). Just watch how fast these guys' hands are:

Apart from getting our groundstrokes together, we have also been watching Oscar Wegner and Brad Gilbert videos. If you want to improve your teamwork in doubles, you gotta watch Sportskool: Doubles Strategy with Bryan Brothers

Come see us play next month at Kallang Tennis Centre! We're lucky enough if we get into the second round!
