yeah, i remember seeing that and reading the article. the article was really good, but i was hoping someone on here had actually seen him play.He was the subject of a very short TT thread starting in 2005:
WOW! That sucks! OTOH, investment bankers have the highest incomes of any profession by a large margin.He was about 7 years behind me in the Jrs but I saw him at UGA and a bunch of college events. Very solid baseliner, had power and was also an excellent doubles player. I think he actully won more JR doubles titles than singles - he had a lower back issue that was hereditary that didn't show up until his first year at Georgia, some sort of disk separation issue that became his downfall. Played out his very successful UGA career in major pain and gave up tennis soon after. Went to Harvard for grad school and became an investment banker or broker.
That's cool you played him. Get a chance to play any other top players from that generation? I remember that TENNIS Magazine article about him that came out.Played Al Parker several times in the juniors at Southern’s and Nationals. High percentage tennis. Very few errors kept that ball deep. Run you like a dog.
