I just learned about Gail Brodsky who lives in Brooklyn because of CoachV's photo that he recently posted. I found this good article from an obscure source about Gail. Interesting quote about heading to California to practice: “That really helped, as I think it would be pretty difficult to play high level tennis in Brooklyn,” Brodsky said. “It’s cold in Brooklyn, and hard to find enough court time.” Brodsky has been on the tour for the past three years. “I turned pro, so I decided to skip college for a while.”

thanks Mark. :-).
I have to show FAN support for any New Yorkers like myself especially. Even though IM from the Bronx, Getting Affordable Court time anywhere near the City or Brooklyn is hard. Court Times can be as High as $100 an Hour at some places during Winter months.
That is neat. Where in California did she move to now..?
I don't think she has officially moved; she is just training in CA. It is in that article that is linked above:
When she became serious about the game, she found a training opportunity at the Weil Tennis Academy in California, where she has spent a good part of the year for each of the past six seasons, while being home schooled to keep up with her education.
The Weil Tennis Academy is in Ojai, CA. If that is anywhere near you Abs, you should go check it out - it is one of the best in the world.
$100 an hour? Incredible.
Yeah add a Extra $50 for a pro.
