Favorite Player (All time/Current) All time: Andre Agassi / James Blake. Current: Rafael Nadal / Bryan Bros
Playing Style Semi-Western forehand, two-handed backhand. Mostly a baseliner, though I like to mix it up with spins and sneak into the net when I can. My favorite shots to hit are my backhand crosscourt and baseline dropshot.
Tennis Background I have been playing tennis since I was nineteen, after I decided that my footballs days were over. I played two seasons at Allan Hancock Community College. Nowadays, I enjoy playing So-Cal tournaments and have won a handful of 4.5 & 5.0 titles.
