    Jim Aronson

    I'm a table tennis player and a coach and a fan of yours. I suggest you keep your emotions more inside when you make mistakes like Roger does a little more of a poker face.. I suggest you practice more at the net and serve and volley. Your serve could use just a little more pop.I'd also like to see you practice your drop shots more your really quite good at them. I believe you could make the top ten. Tennis is my favorite sport to watch of course along with my sport I find the tactics and many things about the the two are quite similar. Anyway I'll always be behind you and rooting for you. Jim

    Congrats AGAIN, Barbora on winning the AVT $25K Women's Challenger, at Fort Walton Beach Tennis Center, Florida. My husband, Ken and I, were there during your Quarterfinals. We were sitting behind you, courtside. Supporting you, even though you were down 5-0, in the second set. I said, "Come on, FIGHT BACK", and you DID! You CAME BACK from 5-0, in a second set, and went on to win the match, in 3 sets! That is the making of a TRUE CHAMPION! We came back again, for your semi-final and the final, to SUPPORT YOU! I didn't know who you were until i saw you play for the first time. I thought to myself, this girl is REALLY GOOD! You are a FANTASTIC PLAYER! People came up to me, wondering if i was your mother or sponsor, haha, and i said "no". They asked me if i was rooting for you and i said, "yes". They asked me why, and i told them, that i thought you were a ALL-AROUND GREAT PLAYER, and just sometimes slam your racket, haha. GOOD LUCK in all your future tournaments and hope you will be playing in the Family Circle Tennis Cup, at Daniel Island, South Carolina, in April. We will be looking for you! SMILE Thanks for all the entertainment you gave my husband and I. We thoroughly enjoyed it! Take care! P.S.-Tell your husband to be there UNTIL THE END of your matches.....he missed a good one! Haha! Barbara :-)
