    Reporting the score as two bagels!!
    i was at my club which i sneak in for free and there was a pro that came to watch me play me and my doubles partner play an she offerd to hit some balls. We hit for about 20 minites and did some drill training with her. The first hit i didnt know what she was gonna hit. She had so much spin the 2nd shot shanked outta here. then after we had some really good rallys. know im going to where there going to because i have a tournament and there gonna watch me play.


    I forget her last name (shes indian) but her first name was "shika". She played Venus Willams in a grand slam and lost 7-5 6-1 although she was up 4-1 in the first set! She just signed a deal with babolat she said and almost gave me like 5 grips because she uses tourna. But this lady was the nicest person i have ever met.

    huh? The poster just said she was indian, nothing about playing for india. Even if she was born and brought up in america and plays for america, her heritage is still indian I'm assuming.

    Shikha Uberoi. Both she and her sister Neha are pros. They are US citizens I believe and shuttle between Mumbai and US.

    True. The Indian board does not want them to play for India any more. Same for Prakash Amritraj.

    They are nieces of a famous Bollywood star of yesteryear.

    BTW, OP: what is your NTRP level?

    ...? IIRC is not a tennis rating system. he just meant: "if i recall correctly, he's 13 [years old]"
