Q: How was your last High school tennis experience?

Q: What’s a must have to have in your tennis bag?

A: I always have to have my sweat rag. I know that sound disgusting but I can’t think of a match where I haven’t had to wipe my hands off. Playing in 90 degree weather with sweaty hands makes the grip really slippery so without my rag I wouldn’t be able to hit my shots!
