Throughout junior high and high school I was obsessed with tennis: played varsity all three years of high school, was featured on the front page of the local paper, played every day, etc...it was everything to me. The years I was actively playing were 1983-1989 My Mother worked as a buyer for large Japanese company and one of the vendors had purchased front row seats to ANYTHING that happened at the Los Angeles Forum. That meant that when the Lakers (in their heyday) played, I was seated by Jack Nicholson, when any of the big concerts happened at the forum I was had the best seats, and best of all, whenever there were pro tennis matches I was seated right by the court. For a kid who idolized Lendl, Mac, Mecir, Connors, etc, the chance to not only see them play from a few feet away, but to also get to meet them briefly while they signed whatever I could fumble in front of them, it was the ultimate dream come true. In trying to find information about those matches, the only thing I can find is information about the L.A. Forum Challenger Series, which means that all of the matches I watched were little more than exhibitions (still awesome). Did anyone here attend those events, and if so, can you please tell me a bit more about them? Thanks! The 80's were a really special time for tennis, imo.
