Hey Coach V! I've seen your name in Tennisopolis FOREVER, so I'm more than happy to accept your invitation. :) Btw, that signature in your book is probably Don Budge, American former World No. 1 ... but you probably already figured that out. Wish I could afford some lessons with you ... MY GAME NEEDS HELP! LOL John
No net play for the girls? I even like to come to the net with my 80 sq inch racquet. I take a short ball and force my opponent to come up with a passing shot. I'm surprised that a Usta hall of famer would say that. Most of them were all- court players back in the day.
Ok.. I mean, I'm not qualified to be a coach, but I can definately play. I'm a member of the Chicagoland Tennis Club (a "Meetup" Group) http://www.meetup.com/Tennis-Club/ and theres about 200 members but only a handful can really play, so its not a lot of fun for me. I have suggested group lessons but no one seems to be interested in that. In the six months I have played with them, hardly any of them have improved one bit.
Coach, i think the only thing kneissl makes now are skiS...hahahahahahahahahahahah.. Maybe now they might throw in a white star racquet with every ski purchase.... Lendl played with the Kneissl Lendl Pro up until 1980. Adidas took the mold and painted them silver (Lendl GTX Pro and then Pro T).
