End of Sept Update
Weight loss continues, a little slowed by a mild cold I've had for a little too long now. TT has too but I'm still making my weekly practice on Saturday mornings.

I'm pretty sure much of my game has improved since the last update including the forehand. For the first time I could tell the difference between Tenergy (used) and Baracuda on the forehand side. While i don't think I added much power or spin to my forehand I am not shanking or outright missing nearly as much.

I've noticed my loop off of heavier backspin is suffering. Need to get lots of that in right away and correct that issue.

About 2.5 months until the US Open here in Vegas but only about 10 days until a trip to Japan. I hope to play some in Japan and just enjoy the vacation. When I return it's time to get more into match readiness and I'm going to switch to doing more match specific drills and more return of serve.

Once this cold is over I need to do a little interval training. My game is as good as it's ever been but after an hour or so my sharpness falls off due to fitness. I'm not going to win an all day tourney in that condition.

So for 2017 my goal is to win the U1500. I feel like I have the skills to do it...but there will be other players who have also improved or have a mis-rating and going deep into the tourney will require a new level of fitness. In the past I've tried to snipe players for points - but this time, for fitness, I'll try and win that tourney.
