    Anyone else see the commercial (I can't remember what it was for), involving Dent, Agassi and Graf? Dent is trying to teach a little boy how to play tennis, and the kid starts wailing balls back at him and before you know it, they're playing a match. I don't want to spoil it, but let me just say that then, an SUV pulls up, the windows roll down, and there's the royal family of tennis ;-) Funny stuff!

    The little boy, I think, is Jaden Gil. It was funny seeing that.

    And he'll probably have a reverse Mohawk by the time he's 30.

    A guy I play tennis with actually auditionned for the part. They were looking for teaching pros to play with the kid and for kids that are the same age as Jaden Gil so he brought his son to the audition (Golden Gate Park in SF, CA).

    Yeah I don't think it is actually Jaden Gil, but I am not sure. This commercial is awesome, I was laughing so I also missed what company it was actually for. Couldn't be Nike, Dent is an adidas boy. Maybe a car company with the minivan?

  9. The little boy's name is Connor. He is the son of a female teaching pro who teaches at the South Bay Tennis Center in Torrance, CA.

    I just saw the commercial about an hour ago. Really funny.

    It was for some sort of investment company.....no name that I've ever heard of. Can't even remember what it was...

    You can usually catch the commercial on the news networks more than during the Wimbledon coverage btw. It is an investment firm and I think it MIGHT be the same firm that had a commercial with Darren Cahill.

    HILARIOUS COMMERCIAL. I thought it was Jaden, hmm... guess not.

    Poor Taylor... lol (he gets to be happy for doing an overhead lol)

    I liked this one but the one with Haas was so damn epic with slo-mo shots. Loved it!

    They did a good job of making Dent look really pathetic. I laugh every time Jaden says "coming"

    Not bad for a mullet. Does Andre call anyone with a mullet "buddy"?
