"It's always been a dream of mine to play professional tennis," Redfoo said.

Okay, I have a question, if it truly is a dream to play pro tennis, why he waste several years in the music business? He had the money, he could've just turn pro like Gulbis did (has a wealthy father).

Probably because he wasn't good enough to go pro?

I think it will be an awesome experience for whoever gets to play him. I truly envy them! :razz:

It will be even more awesome if he wears feather boas or reversible cheetah-print clothing plus the big glasses when he plays. Wimbledon, look out..!

Redfoo's USTA registration is in SoCal, so here's the tournament he's most likely to play in. Should be lots of fun for whoever draws him.

(I deleted the link because of Mike Y's and darrinbaker's accurate corrections below.)

NorCal is claiming that he is playing in the NorCal tournament - http://www.norcal.usta.com/Adult-Tou...ffs_in_norcal/

I'd almost be willing to pay $100 to play against him, that would be entertaining. I'm not going to do it though. Out of my price range and I'd probably have to miss work to play.

It's more than just a claim, it's a documented fact:

If you click on the Applicants tab, you'll see his name. Unfortunately, it's the week before Wimbledon, so Azarenka won't be there to cheer him on.

Its said that he was a ranking junior in Texas and considered going pro...

Going to music has to be the worst career decision in his life- objectively speaking.. :-|

Good catch, thanks for the correction!

Will Azarenka be cheering for him. I mean .... screeching or screaming or whatever.

Poor opponent, he'll probably lose more due to Aza's shrieks.

It's Sendil Ramamurthy that was the ranked junior in Texas NOT Redfoo.

Saw him playing a little soccer on the lawn with the players at Indian Wells on Tennis Channel and was impressed with his moves, he looks fit.

Are Zubaz legal to wear in an USTA tournament? I'd call a hindrance ;)



Saw him hit a few balls during would tennis night, not too shabby.
