Oh, OK - I see where you are going with this. I was going to say a case of new balls and maybe some new shorts if I'm lucky. :-)
As for #3, which Grand Slams have you attended?
Hey Dudley! I'm actually in the process of planning a free tennis clinic for the kids from my hometown Victoria, Tarlac Philippines. I'm targeting kids who want to play tennis, but can not afford to do so. I've collected roughly 20 rackets from USTA and TVTA players. Jeff Rankin and Leo Chi to name a few. I've already sent some rackets and a ball hopper. Hoping to make it happen early 2013.
I object to the use of the term "Grand Slam" when referring only to a single major event. The term "Grand Slam" is borrowed from the golf "Grand Slam" and refers to: winning the 4 major championships in a single calendar year. IMO, the use of the term "Grand Slam" when referring to a single major event cheapens the term, and disrepects the monumental achievements of those very few players who have actually won "The Grand Slam":
Rod Laver (2)
Margaret Smith Court, and
I can agree with that but I think we should redefine the Grand Slam to include holding the trophies for all 4 majors at the same time. So, in my opinion Serena has a Grand Slam. The calendar year aspect is meaningless. If a player has dominated four majors in a row, they are a tennis god and deserve the honor. Can we make a deal here Paul?
A top-of-the-line, portable, tennis ball machine.

So, did you get any of these?
1. Another Tecnifibre TFight 325.
2. An Alpha Revo stringer.
3. A reel of Solinco Tour Bite. Maybe two.
4. A ton of thick Adidas socks.

Bummer Tim my student who is sponsored by Solinco just switched to Gamma could have got you a sweet deal.
