Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
Former USTA tournament/league player and tennis instructor growing up; got burned out; went to college and discovered there was more to life than tennis, ie. rock 'n' roll, art and beer; stopped playing for years; started playing again sporadically; now serious about getting back into it. I'm a little rusty, but looking forward to playing regularly.
If you're 3.5 or higher and you'd like to hit sometime, drop me a line!
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
Andy Murray, Andy Roddick, Robin Soderling, Fernando Verdasco, Bjorn Borg, Kim Clijsters, Francesca Schiavone, Martina Navratilova
My tennis skill (please check your NTRP if you know it):
Pretty damn good, NTRP 3.5, NTRP 4.0, Do not know my rating, If tennis is on TV - I am watching
I just moved to Nyc at the end of last year, and now I am looking to get back to the court. I have not been playing for like 3 months for an injury. I used to play in SF and OC with 5.0 and above players. I am italian, rated 5.0 or more, I have been playing at good levels all my life. Where do you usually play? I just want to get back playing constantly. I am trying to build connections in this city and get back to play since I do not have any tennis contact here! I live in EV but willing to move and play regularly.
Let me know, I am down to play as soon as possible!
A hit this weekend would be great! I am actually off work tomorrow afternoon and trying to arrange a hit then too. Excuse the short notice!
Other than that I am just finalising plans for the weekend but Sunday looks probably best for me if that works for you. I have a scooter so it is no biggie to travel to your court of preference. I have a pass for Roosevelt Island outdoor courts but I am game for a hit anywhere.
Let me know. By the way my cell is 212 960 3363.
Thanks for the reply.
