Yep...my first ever 6-0 6-0 lost came at the hands of a beach bum when I first started and did not know any better.
he had converse all star sneakers...grey sweat pants with a few different colors of paint stains. a 1996 USA olympic shirt that was faded and comming apart around the shoulder.
full beard/ aviator glasses and had his hair tied back with a rubber band.
2 wilson Hammer racquets with hardly any paint left on them...full gut strings and a can of balls and a sweat rag...and I mean rag all wrapped together with a fraying bungee cord.
...he smokes in between sets and the small cooler he had with him contained beer which he shared with me after our match.
best loss ever
