Vignesh took a cross continental flight (JetBlue),
took a cab from JFK, cross the Hudson river on the
ferry and got a ride in a car in order to do 2
hours of TennisNYC.com tennis drills. How
about that for the love of tennis?
Vignesh Anandan is an intermediate tennis
player who wants to improve his tennis game by
joining the league. Vignesh has a great
personality, very positive, highly educated and
motivated and has a good tennis game.
Welcome to the league Vignesh!

17 round robin (above), please

day of tennis!
A Talented 3.5 player with a 9.9 Colgate Smile
Varun, from New Delhi, India has been playing
tennis for only a year and yet his game is typical
of tennis players who have played for more than 10
years! He is talented, very athletic and has a
great eye and hand coordination. He serves
big like Roger Federer! "My friend who is a
good tennis player told me to straighten my arm to
reach up for the ball when serving and it
helps!" he said. Varun just moved to
NYC from Savannah, Georgia where he played 3-4
times per week. Welcome to the league, Varun!
Kim Clijsters future bridesmaid?
Watch out Kim! Meghan Faria (photo above) is
the best friend of Brian (PRO basketball player),
Kim Clijsters' boyfriend and future husband.
Now that Kim announced her retirement in 2 years
to raise a family, it will be more than likely
that Meghan will meet her in New Jersey where
Brian is currently residing. "I will bring my
photo with Brian next time! He is actually very
good looking!" Meghan smiled after doing 2hrs
of tennis drills.
The NEW CHINESE TENNIS REVOLUTION!
Jason Li from China (photo above) is very
eager to join the league and improve on his tennis
game! He said: "I graduated from college and
moved to New York last year and I am looking for
someone to play tennis with. I would love to join
the league. I am an advanced beginner, although I
have not played any tennis since my senior year in
college (Wisconsin). I would probably rank myself
as 2.5." Welcome to the league, Jason Li!
The son of Gregory Peck?
"James Pero (photo above right) has a
striking resemblance to Gregory Peck," Eric
Capuano, the league coach said. James hits a good
solid ball as evidenced by his previous tennis
experience, lessons and training. He has
played tennis since he was a kid. However,
the 2hr intense tennis drills was a good wake up
call for him. "I am not in excellent
physical condition!" he said. James is
now committed more than ever to devote his time to
working out and improving his health!
