One of the other threads here got me thinking it would be interesting to hear everyone's memories of the first professional tennis match you ever saw live and in person. Who was playing, and in the spirit of the subject, what racquets were they using? My first one was the final of the 1981 United Bank Tennis Classic in Denver where Gene Mayer (using a POG 110) beat John Sadri. I can't recall if Sadri was using the Yamaha YFG 30 that he used in college or the YFG 50 or 70 in that match. All I know is that Sadri's incredible service motion made a lasting impression on me, especially in this indoor tournament. I was using a POG at the time and had briefly previously flirted with a YFG 50 which is why this was interesting to me.
