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 Vrana (photo above) played at the TennisNYC.com tennis
league last Monday night, Jan 24, 2005. Janice, a very athletic
woman plays at least three times a week especially during the outdoor
tennis season in Central Park. She loves to play early in the
morning just before going to work. "I don't like the
bureaucracy in Central Park Tennis Center but I need to play so I told
myself to just do it." 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."
