Nope, Steven Chen is not a baby, he is 20 years old, thank

get that impression all the time!" Steven asserted.
He is presently studying at Polytechnic University with a
major in Computer Engineering. Steven is a member of his
College Tennis Team. "My favorite player is Andy
Roddick!" he said and that is one of the reason why he is
using Babolat racquet. Steven is still adjusting to the
slow green clay courts of Central Park because he is used to
playing on hard courts. Welcome to the TennisNYC.com

you said drills, you really mean drills!" Ramesh

Singapore, every apartment building has tennis courts.
When I moved to NYC, I doubled my tax base and limit the
number of tennis courts!" he said with sarcasm.

my life! I don't like to be a target at the net." he
jokes. Ramesh hits a solid hard ball from the baseline
and has an excellent conditioning. WELCOME TO THE
The athletic former college tennis
Garner (photo L). "I am interested in finding similarly skilled tennis players
who are not super competitive. I played national juniors and
division 1 college level so I've had plenty of serious competition
and now would like just to enjoy tennis and work on getting my game
back in terms of strokes, strategy and fitness. I played
competitively from age 13 to 23. I played sporadically from
23-41 due to heavy work schedules. I am now 45 but in fairly
good aerobic shape (running, cycling regularly)."

FILMMAKER WHO LIKES PUNK ROCK MUSIC!!! Matthew McDermott likes to hit the ball hard from the baseline. He has
an excellent technique on both sides, however, since he just returned to the
game few days ago, he is still working on his consistency
especially on clay. He played lots of tennis growing up
in Connecticut because his parents pushed him to become a College player, however, he quit the game just before College
because he didn't like the pressure.

Salvatore Hendrycks (photo above) is the "JAN
MICHAEL GAMBILL" of TennisNYC.com tennis league.
Just like Gambill, the famous tennis PRO, Sal has a great
physique from his biceps to his quads. "I work out
daily," he said. Sal is also a triathlon
athlete. He bikes, runs, and swims among other
things. He has a strong solid forehand, good backhand,
amazing footwork and "forgetaboutit" first
serve. Although he has an abbreviated serve motion, his
first serve still comes out very hard and flat. "I
am not a tennis hacker, I'm a solid 4.0 player!" he said
with strong conviction.
The "Omar Sharif" of the league who likes to travel and
"Tennis is a NICE GAME!" Sherif Malid
(photo above) said after his tennis evaluation prior to
joining the TennisNYC.com tennis league. "I used to
play squash. It is the most popular sport in Egypt where I
came from. But since moving to the US, I abandoned the
sport and started playing tennis. I like Roger Federer's
game. He has a complete game, he's got all the
shots," he said. Sherif has traveled all over the
world and learned that the "more you travel, the more you
realize how little you have really seen." His favorite
movie? "Monsieur Ibrahim" WELCOME TO THE LEAGUE,
