(Photo above L-R) Alan Yeung and Joe Zara both played at the TennisNYC.com tennis league last Friday night.  Alan played 2 hours of intense hitting (singles), tennis drills and singles games.  During the tennis drills, Alan had to stop for a few breaks to catch his breath, however soon after that, his conditioning got better and better.  "This is the most exercise I have gotten in a few months!" he said excitedly.  Alan works full time as a tax consultant.  He graduated from SUNY Albany few years ago and played tennis in High School.  He hits with a big western grip on the forehand side and he is the first player in the TennisNYC.com league who plays a serve and volley game!  Welcome to the group, Alan!
