After a practice session yesterday with Tom McCune, we walked by a court with a ball machine session going on. But the thing that struck me was the guy who was hitting balls was about 5’ 2” and looked to be in his 80s!
I said to Tom, “Look at that. I want to be that dedicated when I am his age.” As I spoke, we passed his friend, who told us the guy is named Tony, is 82, recently had a stroke, and is LEGALLY BLIND. “But that he will not give up playing tennis.”
When “I grow up,” I want to be like those guys.
