    No I do not live in the Mid-Atlantic section, but I know many of the players in it. I have played alot of them as well in National Events and Zonals. That includes Luca Corinteli.

    BTW, i just noticed on your signature, ^^ your still using the Flexpoint Prestige? Don't like the Microgel?

    I've only tested one microgel prestige so far and it had terrible strings in it. eventually i will probably switch over but I think the flexpoint still plays very well

    Yes, I have had my Head for like half a year already. The gap between when I had to regain my contract was only 2 -4 months. Also the Director of the program I play in New York is sponsored by Head and he helps the great players in our program get Team Elite such as Noah Rubin who just won the International 12U in Canada. He is unofficially the number 1 12 year old tennis player in the world.

    He is just a hard worker. He hits nice groundies and is an all around player. I haven't seen him play in so long , so I cannot give you a good scouting report. He is good, however, I think that height will affect him in the long run, as you see already he hasn't really "dominated" the B14s like he did in the 12s.

    Oh okay. Well he is doing pretty good in the 14s actually.. Number 1 in the South ain't too bad.

    True. Number 1 in the South is expected of him. He has a gold ball in the 12s. Time to make noise in the National Championships for him.

    True.. he didn't do so hot in Kalamazoo. Sorry too ask so many questions, but I really just can't believe someone of his height can keep up with some of the hard-hitters that there are in the South. Does he just NEVER miss?

    Nick Wood was not in Kalamazoo. He is very steady and redirect alot of power. He has some power himself. Again, I have not seen Nick Wood in a while.

    I've seen Nick at one tourny, he's really good but i don't think he could beat Di Giulio or Lederman

    What about Tyler Gardiner? I hit with him in Tuscon, and he looked unbelievable! Do you think Wood has a chance against him?

    I played Nick Wood's younger brother Chase in Knoxville. I was scheduled to play Nick but he got sick. His brother killed me 2 and 2 and I'm 3 years older than him but he was just wickedly consistent. I think he made like 3 unforced errors the whole match. And about the height thing, Chase's Babolat Bag was taller than him so I think that says enough. His dad was also there and he didn't look very tall either.

    There is this kid, Griffin Wong. He is really good. I practice with him. The only thing is he just completely breaks down in tournaments so doesn't have a good record. It's too bad because he is really good.

    Yes, it's too bad that a really good player like him can't play in tournaments.:(

    It was a small winter league at one of the local clubs. It wasn't a USTA tournament or anything.
