Gates 3.5? No wayMatthew Perry is not that good. If he played in high school, that probably says something about his high school's tennis program - all high school programs are not alike. And he might have even been the 12th best player on his high school team.
Among other famous people, George Bush Sr. was a pretty good player. Bill Gates also isn't half bad, especially for someone who spends so much time making kajillions. I saw Gates play in an exhibition in Seattle a couple years ago - I'd probably rate him a 3.5. Not great, but he knew what he was doing. Much more than I can say for Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, who made a fool of himself with a tennis racquet in his hand.
