I've completed my training but realize it needs to be done year round. Two weeks of training is not enough.

Best of luck at Nationals.

By the way, never ever play 10-12 yr old girls just before a tournament. It can destroy your confidence in your game.

Very impressive work, Sir. I wish you the best of luck at the Nationals. If you would like to hit around a bit while there, I'd love to. I can warm you up good before any matches. :)

We may disagree on this. I think it's a great challenge and gives me immediate feedback on my weaknesses. Side note - I don't expect you to remember this, but the 12 year old in the video is the same 9 year old you briefly watched sitting next to me at the 2016 Nationals. I told you then she had potential.

I'm also looking forward to being these girls game coach in the mini-cadet girls team event on Sunday as their real coach won't arrive until Monday.

Wow, she has really developed into a fine player.  Have fun coaching.  I hope they are able to follow your advice better than I did when you coached me in the U1500 finals in 2010.

I need to save my energy for matches but I'd welcome a warm up before a match. I think you're the one with the amazing blade collection but that won't help me recognize you. Feel free to introduce yourself if you see me.
