My serve is rusty. But it feels not bad. Second serve is hopping up as it’s supposed to. Every once in a while my toss is just the right amount of out front on the first.

My backhand has become a natural thing in the past couple years/seasons. That’s been the most satisfying. I can create with it rather than just release it. Definite sense of feel at contact. Understanding when a slice is necessary but trying to not use it too defensively.

My brother is my partner. Sometimes he wakes up past noon but any Saturday or Sunday sans rain is an opportunity. I’m sore in a very satisfying way. Especially since we’ve been doing match play and mixing in serving with the groundstrokes.

So it’s been a very successful use of quarantime. And I’ve been getting free food at the parents’ too so I can save my frozen quaranmeats. It’s really been kind of quaranfun. Not quarantrapped.

It is fortunate that you are able to play- - all the courts here are locked up and closed.

My kids' first HS tennis matches were supposed to be yesterday. It's really bothering my older son that he can't play. Younger son isn't quite as concerned about it.

This beer was also good.

We can't use tennis courts here either. Basketball hoops coming down too.

It's to prevent kids and teens from congregating but adults in pairs should be able to use this stuff. I suppose it comes down to whether they have the resources to watch and enforce that or just say eff it and ban it for everyone.

They keep the hoops up here. I've seen one kid shooting baskets on a couple of occasions.

Closing tennis courts but leaving basketball courts open makes no sense at all.

I get it. You can't use a tennis court alone but you can a basketball court.

My son would often practice his serves alone (before Corona restrictions).

They’re the only courts open in the area. My older brother drove like forty minutes to play a couple times. He said nothing’s open where he is.

Lucky us I guess.

The hoops are up, but the fence around them is locked. so they are actually closed. It's a shared space with the tennis courts. The tennis nets aren't up, so nobody will play tennis anyhow.

I’m really sore today though. Knees and chest and back. Shin splints type of ache too. Feels good.

My older brother didn’t go over to my parents’ or anything. Played tennis on the other court with his son while my parents played.

I’m still going over to my parents’. I’m still going to the grocery store once a week. My mom is still in the grocery store often.

Just plenty of hand washing.

Cuomo extended everything till the 29th. But we peaked so. That wasn’t too bad.

Should I not even go to my parents’?

You should not.

That’s the only other place I’m going though. It’s kind of like I’m quarantining at my apartment and at my parents’. That’s only three other people I’m in contact with outside of work.

Be a good son. Call to check on them. Daily if needed.

I’m only there on the weekend. I never go directly from work to there. I’m still monitoring my temperature.

You could be carrying without any symptoms for 14 days! And you're still working which means increased exposure.

I know it sucks but video chat. Don't go there.

Yes, this.

Check in with them, but not in person.

You should not be going to see your parents in person at all.

We haven't seen my in-laws in over a month (we are still working, too).

We haven't seen my in-laws for a month and we're on week 3 of working from home!

Can I still meet my brother at the tennis courts?

Lars Ulrich challenges you to a match.

Wait. A founding member of Metallica was born in Denmark?

F*ck that bullsh*t.

Unless the person lives with you, you should be avoiding them. This includes tennis matches.

But if I live by myself and my car is like a door to living with three other people?
