Sadly, he's *maybe* 5' 9", coming in ~ 200lbs. But he moves very well for a big guy.

In all honesty, you'd never know he was a tennis player, and walking on the court, you'd probably think "I've got this. No problem.".

Then he'd blast a serve by you @ 120+, and you'd think "eh, lucky serve.".

Then he'd blast a forehand by you @ 100MPH, and you'd think "hmm. I wonder if he can do that again.".

Then he'd hit a deft touch volley, or a drop shot off a good, deep offensive shot, and you'd think "WTF!?!?!?".

Next thing you know, you've lost the set 6-3 and you're wondering "How the hell did that happen?!?!".
