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!"
