Doubles Vision - Huss' Year In Numbers
by Stephen Huss|
Hi everyone! I am in Lyon this week partnering Jeff Coetzee where we are getting ready for our quarter final match against the Brazilian team of Melo/Sa. I thought I would share some numbers with you about my year in 2009.
54- My doubles ranking at the start of 2009
96,200- Miles flown
62- Individual flights taken
14- Different countries I have played in
101- Number of days spent at home
200- Days spent on the road
8- Racquets used this year (bottom 10% on tour I think)
76- Racquets restrung this year (very low also)
11- Pairs of tennis shoes worn out
4- Seasons of The Unit television series watched. Cant believe it got cancelled!
3- Number of times I have read my favorite book, Shantaram a must read!
1- Time I have played Roger Federer in doubles
3- Games won against Roger in doubles. The guy is scary good, would love to play him again though. Hope he plays some grand slam doubles before he retires.
5- Different doubles partners played with this year.
17- Doubles partners last year
38- Rounds of golf played this year I am obsessed!
0- Times I have played Rafa at golf... Heard he loves it and plays to a similar standard to me, about 4 handicap, so thought I would publicly challenge him.
49- Days I have not hit a tennis ball this year.
50- Current doubles ranking
Hope you all get out and play some doubles soon!
