and another one:
"I play this guy a few years back and was supposed to win, as in he was playing up a division and he didn't have the ranking he does now, but I dropped a close first set and was blitzed in the second. Very frustrating to play and much better than he looks. His feel around the court is something his peers don't have. It's frightening. "
what you have to understand is that words like this have been said about EVERY player for a major conference school. Wherever they are from they were the bigtime there and got heaps of praise. Well in college all of the "the best I have seen's" are thrown in together.
