one year later, its Felix time. (hope i dont jinx him, he's playing well)

nice call Bob, been following him even closer since you mentioned it last year, kid has a bright future it would seem.

jinx

last night's match is a good example of the things a young player has to work on strategy wise and at finishing close matches. No worries though as it's all part of him growing. Felix has all the tools to be a top player but it'll take time.

I really did jinx the poor kid. Things just went off kilter after my post, but then, he turned 18 yesterday, and all that pressure playing at home.

Also, was disappointed to the see the crowd, looked kind of sparse, maybe weather played a factor.
I really wanted to make it out there this week, last night would have been a good night after the storms, with Felix+Nestor playing at same time.

btw, I cant believe Daniel Nestor is still playing competitive tennis. I'm sure easier to sustain playing doubles, but still.
I used to see him all the time at York U gym/track back in late 80's/early 90's when he first started to gain some attention, and we are about same age. WTF, well done!

last night was a sell out. A lot of people have to leave early when the late match runs long.

I played against Alex Nestor who is Daniel's older Brother in University tennis. He was OUAA Men's singles champion playing for York U. at least once.

Daniel Negreanu grew up I think on the same street as the Nestors. When we were at Atlantis in the Bahamas for Protege 2 Nestor was down there as well (technically he's a resident of The Bahamas for tax reasons) and they gave each other the nod as they crossed paths.

As for Nestor's longevity the last thing that goes is the hands and touch which are most important in doubles. The reason he was never a top singles player is that he is quite slow for a top tennis player but foot speed is far less important in doubles.

I am also playing golf on Sunday at Caledon golf and country club. On the 600 yard par 5 is where a CRA tax auditor flipped his cart because he was drunk on a very steep hill

Well something happen at Caledon on Sunday. Otto and I stayed for 2 rounds since I had an Underpar. My golf buddy and his son left after the first round

On the 2nd round on the short 240 yard par 4 we both hit different trees and the balls bounce back. I made a nice chip on to the green and putted in for birdie. Otto chip on to the far fringe and chip it hard towards the hole it bounce once and the 2nd bounce into the cup for birdie. First time we both birdie a hole. The rest of the front 9 was crazy because I shot 37 (1 over). Best front 9 in my life. The rest was bogey golf which I am accustomed to. However on the 11th I pulled my drive into the trees and rehit a huge drive down the middle. I hit onto the green and one putted into the hole. Otto said I got a birdie. I said no I count everything. Itís a bogey

Otto is now bugging me to know when we are playing next since he probably played the best he has ever played too. Needless to say I am itching to play

Very surprise that not more attention is on 2 future stars that are in Toronto right now. RJ Barrett and Alphonso Davies.

Zach. Has the Bird hit Toronto yet? I would think this is something you would approve of. They are all over large cities in the US.
