    Great stuff! I knew Dirk was a tennis fan, but his strokes looked better than I expected. Especially for a 7 footer.

    His strokes look pretty good actually for someone who I assume doesn't play very often. Of course he could have a monster serve if he ever practiced it seriously.

    I like the part at the end where he was doing bball with the tennis staff. Let's just say he looks better hitting tennis balls than they do trying to play basketball.

    Nowitzki is excellent for an amateur, if he was younger you could see with a lot of practice and coaching he could have been a pro player. What a huge serve he got Petko with for that one point. Nice video thanks for posting.
