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.

I believe on formal instruction as I took lessons as a junior from a really good coach, Chris Crawford, A USTA hall of famer http://www.texas.usta.com/News/2003_10/44285_Texas_Tennis_Hall_of_Fame_Announces_Class_of_2003/ I paid my dues when i was a junior player.... When my friends were out partying, I was sneaking onto country club courts at night and playing tennis, all to get better.

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, how do you convince people to take lessons? When I suggest it to people, they look at me like I have the plague.......

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).

Really? Its still for sale. It was strung once back in 1995 but i took the strings off and put it away and never used it. The grip still smells new, too.

Hey Coach , I have a mint condition Sampras 6.o wilson Pro staff that I bought in 1995 at Holabird Sports in Maryland, do you know anyone who might be interested? I'm just not a Wilson fan, and someone else could appreciate it more. It is the 85 sq inch model with the head guard

Coach, Back in the day when I was on tour , I used to stay at the Biltmore Hotel on West Peachtree Street. They had one lighted court, nice and private, so I could hide from the autograph seekers. Right accross from the Post Biltmore Apartments, a real nice bar, cant remember the name of it but definately go inside if you have time, you'll be surprised! with regards, Ivan Lendl

Thanks William, Are you from the Bronx? I grew up not far from the there. My father grew up in the Bronx. Arthur Avenue. Maybe you'd be interested in a sales rep position with AVERY Racquets? Let me know. All the best, Tom Avery

What is your rate for a private lesson? I'm also interested in watching you coach to get a feel for your style. Can you give me a couple of times/days when I might be able to check out your coaching style this week or weekend?

Alright coach :) Give me a time and place, and I'll be there. I live in Cobb, but for tennis I'm willing to travel for a bit.
