Procrastinators Corner, Tennis / 12.05.2015

They don't make commercials like this anymore. French tennis star Gaël Monfils use his ASICS GEL-Resolution 6 to showcase some of his remarkable tennis skills in the new Asics commercial. Watching this did make me a little reminiscent for that old American Gladiator show. I definitely would not be surprised seeing Gael in a quick cameo in the next Expendables film(Stallone I'm looking at you!). Maybe we can set up a course like this in our shop. ...

The Australian Open 1995. It's the quarter finals. Pete Sampras versus Jim Courier. If you've been a tennis fan for a while, you know where this is going. For someone who is getting into tennis, grab a tissue. I'm about to serve up an ace in the feels department. Just prior to the match Pete Sampras' coach and long time friend, Tim Gullikson fell ill and had been forced to return to the U.S. after several tests were ran at a local hospital....

I don't know how in the world I never saw the original(shortened) music video to this song. It's a few years old now but it reminds me of fun times that I've had with friends and Trident gum. Upon first seeing this, I turn to Jin and asked if he'd seen this epic video. He slapped me across my face and said "Where have you been?". Just kidding, he never did any of that. He actually pointed out that the artist Martin Solveig is actually a...

Back in 2012 there was an epic battle between two great tennis players. It didn't happen on the court, but rather in unexpected places. Anytime you hear Djokovic's name in anything on or off the court, 9/10 you're going to laugh. This is definitely one of them. He team up this Head teammate Maria Sharapova in an all out battle of skills. Watch these two showcase how talented they are with the tools of their trade. The question's been thrown down....

So you have a bad day. What do you do? Try your best to turn it around or throw your racquet 30 feet into the stands? Me? I usually slam my racquet to the ground then cry in my car. When playing any type of level, I was taught to always give 100% till the final whistle. Michal Przysiezny goes from bad to worse in 4 swings. Not everyone is perfect, but this is a prime example of a perfect tank. The more I...

Just came across this ridiculous Head commercial back from 2010. Starring Novac Djokovic it goes from normal to "what in the world?" in the most epic way. I could only wish that more advertisers had more fun with the product and culture of what they're selling. There was a small part that reminded me of what happened early in this years Rolex Masters that had a different outcome. I'll give a hint. We actually just posted about it less than a week ago. ...
