Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
I hit 4.0 (East Coast)/4.5 (West Coast) and play 4.0 (i.e., I hit freer than I play matches). Played on h.s. team. Stopped playing for 17 years; picked it up again after moving behind court no. 27 of the Racquet Club of Irvine in Orange County, CA. Played weekends at Greenspring Racquet Club when living in Baltimore, then red clay at Tennis Club of Strasbourg, France; now on green har tru at Sudley Club in Manassas
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
Djokovic for completeness. Federer for grace. Nadal for grit. Ferer for hardest working to make the most of assets. Agassis and Borg from back in the day. Root for Janowicz.
