In the mid-80's, as a mediocre small college player, I played some doubles with George Karl, who had been a major college basketball player and a journeyman ABA/NBA player and who was by then an overweight NBA coach who hadn't played tennis in a long time. We bageled two other young guys who weren't much worse than I was. The lesson I took away from it was that basic athletic talent goes a long way in tennis.
