she decided to quit few weeks ago. "I worked long hours,
12 hour a day PR job for a famous Chef in Manhattan. I
was only 21 and they gave me a high power position, they must
have seen something in me." Stephanie used to play tennis
in High School and now wants to be physically active again.
Stephanie has great tennis stroke production and
technique. She is presently working on her consistency
and physical conditioning.

THE ATHLETIC EX-RACQUETBALL PLAYER vs THE NICEST TENNIS
PLAYER from Africa
(Photo above L-R) Yaya and Burt in Central Park Tennis
Center! Burt (photo R) did an hour of tennis evaluation last
Tuesday afternoon, April 26, 2005 with Koko Lani, the League
Director of TennisNYC.com tennis league. After the evaluation,
Burt asked if I can find him someone who can beat him. He
said, "Not very many guys can beat me. I have a hard time
finding someone to play with because most guys wont play with me
because I beat a lot of players. They cannot handle my
game!" he said. "I used to play racquetball so my tennis
game is unconventional," he adds. "Most guys who
play with me, gets frustrated! Do you think you can find someone to
beat me?" I told Burt to give me a few minutes and I will
find him someone. Five minutes later, I came back with Yaya,
the nicest tennis player from Africa. They played a SINGLES match for
less than half an hour. Yaya beat Burt easily 6-2 using my
racquet and topsiders shoes. Burt
said after the match, "The score was 5-2, the match is not over
yet." Yaya looked dumbfounded and said, "The match is
finished, 6-2. If you think its 5-2, lets finish," Burt,
however, refused the offer. Yaya, however, was very complimentary of
Burt's game. Yaya said smiling, "You reminded me of my opponent
in Paris, you did very well!"
