I was for a real treat this morning: doubles tennis legend Kevin Ullyett gave me a lesson how to poach properly! He is just unbelievable on court: fast as a flash - his game is like a chess in fast-forward motion. His life lesson is pretty simple to understand, but very hard to execute properly: Go Forward And Poach. Time is to come to The Net.
"… And you do not have to do anything else in this rEVolution, no fighting required, you should not be scared - we are talking just about your driveway. "They" are very scared now - you can still read and now you have the choice. This choice is about the real Energy Security, about distributed power systems with Sun and Wind, when you buy your electric car and can charge it with Solar at home. You are getting off the Oil Needle. One electric car at a time. How will you justify another war to "bring democracy" to another country if the Oil is not needed any more? But it is not our problem. By the way, big Toyota noise about Hydrogen in Germany today is just another Needle from the same good old buddies from the Big Oil, but I will cut another track for that one later. Now you know all the story. "Good Uncles" from the boardrooms brought me from the baseline to the net and they will get a proper poaching while my strings are holding, but than you know there is always The Force. Read more."
Kevin Ullyett (born 23 May 1972 in Salisbury, now Harare) is a former professional tennis player from Zimbabwe. His primary success on the tour was in men's doubles.
Ullyett won 34 doubles titles during his career, including two Grand Slams at the 2001 US Open and the 2005 Australian Open with countryman Wayne Black. He also competed in the 2000 and 2004 Summer Olympics, coming in at fifth place in 2004 with Black. In mixed doubles, Ullyett won the 2002 Australian Open with Daniela Hantuchová. He reached the final of Wimbledon in 2002 with Hantuchová, and the semifinals there in 2003 and 2005 with Hantuchová and Liezel Huber, respectively. He and Huber were also the runners-up at the 2005 Australian Open.
Black, Ullyett's compatriot and long-time doubles partner, retired at the end of 2005. He then played with Paul Hanley for two seasons, then with Jonas Björkman, who retired at the end of 2008, and finally with Brazilian Bruno Soares.
His father, Robert Ullyett, represented Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) in cricket and field hockey. He was part of the national team that competed at the 1964 Olympics (they beat New Zealand 2–1 and came 11th out of 15).
He made his final tennis appearance at the South African Open in February 2010 (partnering with Wesley Moodie) eighteen years after he first appeared there in 1992 competing in his first ATP Tour event. He had over 500 career wins.
