    I wasn't really hooked on tennis per se, I got hooked on competing/winning. I just grew up in a tennis family so started playing when I was really young and didn't really what it was ever like to NOT play tennis regularly. I was always a decent athlete but team sports didn't appeal to me because I felt teammates just got in my way.

    that was cute story, your friend flirting seems like it would make a better video though.

    I lived across from a tennis court. I mean balls would fly across the street into our house, that's how close. Besides, gaby sabatini was on tv with some form of transparent white shirt all the time. Need I say more?
