yes, of course, i know you can, but it is a big step for me. just bordering on quitting competitive tennis in the team format (usta) as the whole 'team' thing is just ringing pretty shallow these days. been doing it for over five years, it's been fun, been playing 5 days a week, and with a recent injury, have done some major re-evaluation of my life, my team, my team 'friends', my family's needs, my ability to really get that much better....the cost versus the realistic goal, the whole nine yards. i will say, i LOVE tennis, there is nothing like it! i don't need to sell it to you, as you are obviously THERE!
