Played against a new guy this morning, lost 6-4 6-4, tight game but for some reason felt like we were both holding something back. Enjoyable, nonetheless. I'm trying out the Wilson NPro Surge at the moment; seems quite nice, have to try a few others to get a good comparison.
I finished Never Let Me Go...overall, I thought the actual basis was weak if evaulated as speculative fiction, but if you just accepted the premise and went with the book as it was written, it was superb. I was also amazed at how much some reviewers managed to utterly miss the point, but that's critics for you.
