  1. Is there a reason why the draw a Miami and elsewhere have bye’s when there’s qualifying rounds. Why don’t they fill up the draw so there are no bye’s? The first 78 top ranked players make it in automatically. If they didn’t have any bye’s there would be a spot open for the next dozen or so ranked players.

  2. Hello OnCourt Advantage

    I am in Kansas. Found a sport shop, that sells a range of tennis rackets. Can you tell me what size (grip), string to get? I think you told me size one. Saw a racket – Head – Sponsoring Novak Djokovic, will get that range.

  3. Hi OnCourt Advantage,

    Made it back to Houston, and just like last time I took the lesson with you, I feel like a different player on the court. All my tennis mates at the club are wondering what happened to me, I am on fire! I have taken many lessons from different pros over the past 5 years, but you really see the problems with my technique and you communicate it much better than anyone else. We had a one hour lesson and I am a different player… tennis is more fun when you can execute. Thanks!
