Yes, I think I said somewhere back in the thread that I don't believe he's hitting close to 110 mph ... from what I've seen so far. Still, great potential, imho. He's sort of knee-jerk reacted to the sarcastic put downs of his claims. Which is probably the way I would react. I think he could probably beat most of his detractors or skeptics. That's why I excluded him from my challenge to USTA 3.0Cs.

Whatever mechanical problems you see, I think he is intelligent enough and motivated enough to improve upon.

So, I'm issuing a new challenge. I expect that by 2015 NTRPolice will be a bona fide, solid 4.5C USTA player.
