Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
Very new to tennis! My tennis practice thus far has been confined to hitting against a wall. I have only learned the one-handed topspin backhand stroke, and even that needs work. BUT, I do practice about 3 or 4 times a week. I just want to be able to practice with someone because right now I can't afford lessons. Possibilities might include feeding balls to one another to improve strokes, etc. Anyway, I really want to play with another beginner who wants to learn, too.
Favorite pro tennis player(s):

Hi Giselle, thanks for the message. yes of course Mark mention that to me. I like to play with you any day. just let me know we can schedule the date. I am here two more weeks then going for traveling for a few months then will be back. in the mean time we can play before i go my trip if you like.
Thanks for the reply! As of right now I'm avail any day and any time after today. Let me know what's best for you. I also saw you commented on Cana's page, if anything we can all meet up and play together. Just throwing that idea out there. :] I know a few drills we can do with three players on court!
How are you doing today? Im relatively new to tennis too and we're in the same boat when it comes to not being able to afford lessons and wanting to get on courts to improve via drills and good old fun rallies. Hope we can get out on court sometime to practice and improve. Im around the Silver Lake area and I know some good courts (lighted and free) we can go to. Im currently avail to play any time!
