I'm an NTRP 4.5 level 50-year-old tennis player. My tennis career started late at age 14, but I made the La Jolla High School 1981 team in my senior year. My best tournament results were an "A"-level (now NTRP 5.5) USTA final in 1988 and a win in a match in the Hawaii State Open in 1987 over the #2 junior from American Samoa. Briefly, I was #2 in the San Diego seeding rankings in the NTRP 4.5s in September 2009. I keep exploring ways to improve my game, my fitness, and my on-the-court thinking. Hopefully I can help you too.
