    That's impressive, going yard is quite a feat even in BP.

    and not only can hit baseballs, he & Knowles won their 350th match in the Houston semi's and they also won the title. Canada's tennis pride...the only one at the moment unfortunately.

    It just shows that these guys really are awesome athletes. Obviously their hand-eye coordination is off the charts. At a Twins game last spring that I went to, they had some of our University's better football players there trying to hit softballs from a spot in the outfield into the stands. The guys couldn't come close, they swung and missed most of the time. Tennis players can easily compare to the best athletes in the world.

    Pretty neat! But, the article made a mistake - knowles is not the lefty, danny nestor is.

    tykrum , I wish there was more media focus on that. but then when the public seems to want brawling and fighting, it's hard for an individual sport to have attention paid to it.
