This blog post is taken from our 'The Ace' tennis newsletter and is inspired by a lesson I took with our local pro, Dave Rowat. I have a lot of respect for Dave. He's a great player of course but he's a tremendous teacher. Those two things are not always synonymous!

I love the game of tennis. I enjoy watching it, playing it and writing about it! What I find truly amazing is the amount of focus and the amount of skill that is required to play well.
We were very excited to receive in the new version of the Babolat Pure Drive earlier this year...
The Prince Textreme Warrior 100 was a pretty easy racquet for me to review as it is my normal racquet that I play with.

I got the opportunity to go watch the day session of the semifinals of the Rogers CUP in Toronto where the women are playing. I watched two matches the first being Sara Errani versus Simona Halep and the second being the doubles match featuring Bethanie Mattek-Sands/Lucie Safarova versus Kristina Mladenovic/Karolina Pliskova. Both matches were terrific to watch and while they both ended 2-0 they were good competitive matches.
