I bought tickets to see him play Connors in an exhibition in Minneapolis, (actually Bloomington, but who's heard of Bloomington?) Tanner was a no-show, (no reason was given). The crowd was disappointed but the promoters redeemed themselves by getting Kreik to fill in. Now that I know more about Tanner's selfish personality I'm suspicious about why he was a no-show. Probably didn't care about the awful problem not going created for other people. How do you replace the hardest server in the world?

Kreik and Connors had some great points, though. Up close, I could really appreciate their court covering abilities.
