Lendl Jr. (4.5) commented on Van Sias's blog post 'Can Someone Please Tell Me Why Tennis Doesn't Get More Respect?'

"Hey Mark, so sorry for the delay in commenting back! I like the fact that Sock won the junior title at the Open; very impressive. And I hope Harrison's performance at the Open wasn't a blip. That kid can really play!"

Hey Van, Check out this helpful info about copyright - crazy story, but it is all true. Let me know if you need any help working the Flickr pics with Creative Commons. Apparently, it can be a sticky situation so be careful out there my man! Please take down any photos that you are uncertain about (and definitely leave the blogs up though - I love them.)

Hi Van,

I live in Park Slope, Brooklyn and am a 10 minute walk to Fort Greene Park. I'm a teacher so this week, and all summer, I have lots of time. I used to be decent but am a little rusty. Let me know if you're interested.
