What is the OLDEST man playing TENNIS?

Iv been playing tennis every other day for up to 3 months now and its an addicting sport. A good thing about tennis, just like basketball, football, or baseball, is that you dont have to pay to play. Gets you in shape quick and you can play this sport all the way till your in your 80's or even 90's if you make it that old.

I met this man named Roger and he has been playing tennis since he was 14 years old. Dedicated his time to play tennis for as long as he was alive. This man is now 86 years old and plays like a well oiled machine. I want to know his secret

I met a guy named Roger but he was no where near that old. He said he just won a major tournament in England or something.

I played well into my 50's but then developed tennis elbow. Tried switching hands but it just wasn't the same.

It's basically a stress fracture in your elbow from hitting the ball too hard. It's really common amongst the best servers in the world, they hit it so hard and their bones just can't take it. My guess is that madgoat is lying to impress you. I've played him a couple times, his serve isn't that good.

I like to think my serve is pretty good for 58.
