"Hi John, I'm in Shaker/Cleveland Heights area. I thought about contacting you, but I can't play at a 4.0 level.

Hello all,I am back in town for a year or so, looking to play some friendly tennis while the season lasts. I have peaked at 4.0 but I have not played all summer so I am probably at a 3.5 now. I also sometimes play with my left hand due to right shoulder issues; as a leftie I am about a 2.5 and getting better!

Had a broken string for the first time since I came to the area. Anyone on the Eastside know of a good place to restring a racquet within a quick bus/metro ride of Little Italy?

Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
I live out east in Cleveland Heights near Case Western. I try to incorporate some of everything into my game: one- and two-handed backhands, different grips, I am even working on my left-hand game (2-2.5), but this can cause me to be inconsistent. Tennis for me has always been more about having fun than getting better, though getting better is half the fun.
**Edit: I recently had surgery on my right shoulder, so for the remainder of 2011 I shall be playing exclusively left-handed.
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
Bartoli recently impressed me at the Paribas Open, but in general I enjoy watching pretty much everyone.
