I've always known the name Cliff Drysdale lumped in there with all the great players from the sixties and seventies. But was he really that good? And is he a good analyst/ announcer in your opinion?

I had the pleasure of getting to know Cliff Drysdale while I worked as a teaching pro at John Newcombe's Tennis Ranch back in 1988-1989... He is a very nice gentleman. I played with him on several occasions and he was and is 'pretty darn good'. I have always preferred his match commentary. ~Coach Sam Chadwell
Sam, I went to Newk's in my teens - it must have been around '85. Was a fun place. Is it true what they say about the good ol' days there with the drinking and partying?
I have to say that as a young man, (22 years old) my eyes were opened to the 'ways of the world' when I worked there and I found it necessary to say 'no' to many temptations...

So in other words, YES, there was MUCH drinking and partying going on at that time. Overall, I would categorize my nearly two year employment stint there a worthwhile experience which prepared me for what has been an awesome career in many facets of the tennis industry...!
