Wow, Just came back from the Metzger Open in Harrisburg Pa and watched some very fun and entertaining tennis. Luke Jensen , Jimmy Arias , Jeff Tarango and some dude from the university of Miami played a double match using wooden racquets. It was great. They still put on a show using the old wooden racquets. J Arias was as good as he is with his Prince 03 Tour.
It was neat to watch them hit two handed shots with the small wooden heads. They all hit with good pace, great slice and placement. The serve was not nearly as big but it was amazing to watch those guys have a blast.

Another neat thing was Luke Jensen hitting both rigth handed and left handed. He was very impressive. He had a BIG serve. and hit with a ton of pace using his reqular Wilson racquet.

Those guys come every year to this tournament which is the PA clay court championship.
After Jimmy Arias was finished playing he put two bags of ice under his shirt on his shoulders. It looked like he had football shoulder pads on. I heard him joking saying that he looked like Nadal.
It was a great time. If you ever have a chance to watch him play. Do so. He is a roit.
