Reminds me of an older guy I used to know when I was a youngster. Former pro from the wood generation. Made it to the finals of every Open tourney in town but always had to default the finals because he's a preacher and didn't play on Sundays. Old school pro with a wooden racquet>Open player with modern equipment.
Also, my former high school coach was a top 100 player in the early 80s. Plays with a cheap Walmart racquet but still kills.
