Eric Jin (photo above) played at the TennisNYC.com Tennis League last Tuesday night, Jan 25.  Eric Jin has a great inside out and cross court forehand that lands deep and with a lot of pace.  He has an amazing foot speed and a great fighting spirit. Eric, a successful businessman, has been playing tennis on a regular basis for almost 13 years now.  "I'm so happy to find your website from Google.  I just typed tennis and NYC, and it came up on the very top.  The league is very inexpensive.  I thought there was a mistake in the price! It's so hard to get partners in tennis, especially similar level. I'm glad I came."

Janice revealed that there is some form of tennis competition in her family and added that her sister is a great player. "She gets every ball.  She is a solid 4.5"

Joe and Tony (photo above L-R) played at the TennisNYC.com tennis league last Friday night, Jan 21, 2005.  Joe, an advanced tennis player, is a native of New York City, grew up in Brooklyn and later on moved to Long Island.  He played JV Tennis in High School and became Captain of his high school tennis team.  He tried out for a tennis scholarship in College but was unsuccessful. Despite this, he graduated last year from Marist College with a degree in Business Administration. "I love Agassi's game," he said.  "Agassi I think is one of the greatest athlete of our time. I mean, considering how old he is and still on top of his game.  That takes a lot of discipline. That guy is a machine!"  Joe is a true tennis fanatic, hacker and player.  He has the biceps and hip rotation that put enough juice on the ball. Tony, on the other hand, used to be a hockey player from Pittsburgh before moving to NYC.  He is seriously working on his tennis game at the moment, especially his backhand, by doing lots of tennis drills. When I [Koko Lani] suggested to Tony to change his racquet to a newer model, he quickly responded and firmly held onto his racquet, "This racquet was given to me by my father as a Christmas present. I love this racquet."
