A Resurgence

TennisTitan broke out of his recent slump 'big time' this afternoon at Andrus Park in Yonkers, NY. The 'boisterous buffoon' joined mates George 'Deli man' Hauss, Frank 'Slats' Slattery and Joe 'Gimpy Knees' Cruz for three sets of high caliber play. Titan paired with the 'Deli man' in the opening (3-6) set loss and more than held his own in attempting to fend off the baseline power and finesse at net that 'Gimpy Knees' provided throughout the entire two and half hour session. Teaming with 'GK' in the second and third sets against the 'Slats'/'Deli man' tandem the 'egotistical idiot' provided ample support to enable 'GK' to sweep (6-3, 6-4) all his opponents this day. Titan did not have pop on his serve but for once had a semblance of a net game and well placed ground strokes. TT's baseline power and accuracy gave his opponents fits at net, blasting away at an overwhelmed 'coddling counselor' and often handcuffing the 'Deli man'. A bemused 'Slats' and a confused 'Deli man' acknowledged that defeating 'Gimpy Knees' is always difficult regardless of who his partner is, but it is near impossible when Titan fails to cooperate and make more unforced errors than they do.
