TennisNYC.com tennis league last Friday night. Alan played 2 hours
of intense hitting (singles), tennis drills and singles games.

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

tennis in High School. He hits with a big western grip on the
