Random things about me (hobbies, occupation, tennis history, favorite band, etc.):
I am a 27 year old guy who's never had any formal tennis instruction. I try to get by on decent physical ability and my love of playing the game. I didn't even know what a ranking was or how it worked until last summer when I smoked a couple of guys who said that they were 4.0s. I then got an injection of reality (and humility) when I got WHOOPED by a guy who said he was a 4.5 (and he should know...I found out later that he was an instructor). He told me that I was a rough 3.5 (but have all the tools to be much better (with practice)). Basically, I would rather play guys above or around my skill level and play 5 sets. I just love playing the game and dying to get better.
Favorite pro tennis player(s):
When I began playing recreationally when I was younger I was always Sampras and my friend Jake was Agassi...our two favorites. Now I think my favorite player to watch is Jo-Wilfried Tsonga. That guy has crazy tricks up his sleeves and just a blast to watch.
My tennis skill (please check your NTRP if you know it):
I'm getting there., Don't know my what my rating is., If tennis is on TV - I'm watching.
