I don't know philip if you know. He passed away about six years ago but he had a wonderful school and he was a phd in clinical psychology and his his reasoning. His theory was that if you teach all of the people Certain way to teach you know. Don't get them one teaching the western grip or one the continental grip or won the eastern grip to hit afford. You know kind of Teach all kind of the same way you know. Even though the game. Today's changed so much from when we played serve and volley and in lots of times. The kids had a continental forehand. Because it was. You know you've always more on on grass but Then when you change the surface you change the type of play in in in the way people hold a racquet and they want to put more topspin on it and it's tougher to get the low ball that would be on a grass corporate guide. You can do lots of things with a ball kick it over.

"We're broadcasting live. From actually right across the street from the Beverly Hills Country Club. Actually, it's a very Beverly Hills tennis club. Excuse Ray. It's not a country club. We're watching them play tennis below, between between segments here, so you might hear some hooting over there. Yeah, we're out here on the West Coast. How to get away from the winter is coming, isn't it? It's coming. All right. 803 2107 10 we have on the line. Let's see. No, we've got Rosemary. Rosemary. What can I do for you? What's your ankle? Yes, I'd like to know about liquid nitrogen. You know that to be used the dough mitad issues that Teo get rid of the brown spots. They sprayed on the brown spots. On your hands or your face. Now, have you used that? And what do you think about it? Okay, so now liquid nitrogen, Believe it or not, it was actually first used you. Do you know the year that it was first used Rosemary, You have an idea. You think of it as something new right? It was Actually it's 1/19 century technology. If you want to call it that is somewhere in the early 18 hundreds. It's called cryosurgery. It's It's using something very cold. Teo free something off of your skin. Now it's mostly done by dermatologists. So I was a plastic surgeon. I do a little bit of this, but not a lot. I'll tell you why. But it is very good liquid nitrogen is very good. So if you have a lot of let's say actinic Charito sees now What's that actinic characters? This is a pre malignant Condition and it's a little spot on your skin usually a little bit. Read a little bit Brown can look look like an excoriation and they can develop into skin cancer is called squamous cell carcinomas. So the liquid nitrogen a lot of people get A few of these not just one or two dozens and even hundreds of these things on the skin. So how old you by the way? Rosemary 80. Okay, So you're 80 years old. So the last thing you want is to come to me and have me excise all these things. Cut them out, Numb you up and put some stitches in and go through a long surgical procedure, right? So if you could have cryotherapy, wouldn't that be a good thing? And it is so it's It's best use is for things like actinic Cara Toasties and a dermatologist would do this. I don't do it. I sent to a dermatologist. This And in fact, Ah, I am joining a guy I spoke about this last week. A guy named Dr Ron Boy who was a chairman of a He's Ah, he is a great dermatologist in Beverly Hills. And and by the way, and I had another patient say you're moving now. No, no, I'm dividing my time between New Jersey and Beverly Hill. So I'm not moving. Relax. I'll be here just as much for the most part, but just working double time in the West Coast. But regardless so a guy like Dr Ron Boy does does liquid nitrogen. He'll go through your body, and he might Zap off, Maybe 20 or 30 of these things, these actinic Cara Toasties, and it's also effective on brown splotches. But you might not want to use that as a primary thing. Are you concerned about these brown swatches for cosmetic reasons or because you're worried? That might be something bad? Mostly cosmetic reasons. Okay, so Rosemary, the thing about cryotherapy. Is that it doesn't know when to stop. That means It's very easy to go just a little bit deep, particularly if you're a tea by the way, because your skin is thinner. So the amount of freezing and it depends on the temperature of the liquid nitrogen, which is pretty much set The and the extent of the exposure's how long the dermatologist will zap those areas. So if there's something thick like, let's say if you had a wart on your foot, they might do many seconds of exposure. They sit there in the freezer. A lot of thought that frees it again. And then your reward comes off. That's great. And if it's a little brown spot like just a freckle. It just takes a second, you know, to freeze that, and then it flakes off in about three or four or five days. So, so Certainly it's very useful for you. Also, it's useful for treating early skin cancers. So if the dermatologist thought that you had maybe a basal cell carcinoma Which is a type of skin cancer, that a lot of people get as they get older. Or even a squamous cell carcinoma and did not think you are a good candidate for surgery really surgery because of Ah, you know, maybe you have diabetes or or a lot of other illnesses. So That dermatologist might freeze off and watch carefully for two years. The spots that look like they were skin cancers. So cryotherapy is very good. It's also useful for separate Cara Toasties. Those air those things that grow in your skin that are benign. That every dermatologist in plastic surgeon knows exactly what they are just by looking. But you don't But the problem with it is I just said something that's not really true. And you didn't say anything about it because I've quoted a paper. One of my favorite papers in the area of several characters. I'm sure you read all these papers about several characters he spent seriously everybody has them. There was a study at the Brigham and Women's Hospital about 10 or so years ago. And they looked at tens of thousands of specimens that came in with the diagnosis. Separate characters is they were shaved off by the dermatologist or plastic surgeon. They were. They were expected to be several characters, sis. But at the end when they were looked under the microscope, there were ah bunch of melanomas. Those air pretty bad cancers..

I actually follow a lot of the vices that he had given me over the years. You were playing his playbook. I was playing his playbook you know he he always said. I remember all my practice sessions when I was going to UCLA. I would ask him a lot of questions you know. How do you do that aren't you how do you? How do you do this? And he I always remember he says when I had a a tough match he says I would. He says I would find a place that I could be by myself. Not Disturb the locker room sometimes was not but so. I used to ease the lock himself into. Wc in the toilet you know. He says so that he could really in his mind. Play the match you know. Make start making decisions about.

But but I I wanted to psychedelic stuck at all really did you're right. So the great Gonzalez comes in. And at this point, he's little I must be close to forty or something. Oh, no. Well, when I first met he was younger he was about forty right? So anyway, he comes through and he's a anoints a young guy once in a while ago. Go hit with them, and you're sitting there, and the I don't know tell you you were just telling him that that story recently eventually is little says the big once you with my man here. Yeah. And you guys go out, and but you fall into place with each other pretty quickly. We did he's. For me to hit with him. He would hit with everybody. But me, but but I would always sit around a wash because he was such a an elegant player and his attitude just kind of fit right in with me. And you know, I love the way he approached thanks. We had different styles because he was six four big serve and volley player, but he moves so well and his groundstrokes for a big man back then were spectacular. So I I wanted to to just watch into see in how he would go about things, and we happen to hit it off. And and what he gave me, you know, little Pancho gave me so much. But big punch. Also, you know, gave me some some things that helped my game and to help my personality and to help my my fight on the court. And and the way I approach my game. So you know, if I can't learn from Pancho Segura Pancho Gonzalez, and that was my fault. It's pretty trippy. Blur man being on a hardcourt and Belleville with their mom and grandmom learning how to do it. And it seems like you're pretty. Quick trip. And all of a sudden you're in the belly of the beast like you said the hub of it all at the Beverly Hills tennis club. And you're probably thinking is this all real? But then punch makes it real real one day talking to you about the US open. Tell that great Gonzalez story. Oh, well, we I spent some time hitting some balls with him and playing with him.

Right. And and so I said, oh good. You know, it comes back, and he says, well, I'm glad you're into the opening says because we're playing doubles there, and you should know. I I said we are. I said I'll I'm there for show. You must've been it was it was beyond. I mean, you know to to be throwing in. He was he was a no frills guy to me anyway. And you know, he I hope he saw something in me that he liked and because of our our friendship, I think he did. But you know, what he gave me was he gave me instant pressure. You know, whenever there was a big point. He told me to take, you know. And you know, what I'm said there were nine point different tiebreakers tiebreaker nine point when it got to four four until you until you told me to take it, and and and you know, which right away, you know, I'm throwing in there, you know, to to be a part of it what it's like to be under that kind of pressure where you know, one point can make the difference. And and you know, what a gift he gave. Yeah. I learned early. But it was also smart. He's he's doing the avuncular thing. The punch thing letting you take. But then you realize after you take serve twice at him descend. Just get it back. Just all of a sudden they go to get it back. That's like credit kill anything on an overhead. Right.

I mean, it was it was beyond and you'd walk in. You don't know who you'd see there? You know? So just hanging around you could you know, there's a game somewhere. Right. But but that was all because of of Pancho Segura was such an attraction such a draw his personality and his reputation and his game. And everything was you know, you walk in there. And it was never dull good kits going on. When tennis wasn't being played. That was the best part of the day. You know, go get your work out. We'll sit around and have lunch, you know, do that.
