Playing in a Pro Am

While it may not possess the prestige of a national tournament or high school state tournament, it is possible that one of the most important matches you might play, even as a junior, could be in a pro am. While it might seem trivial, it can be a unique chance to make a lasting friendship - or a chance to catch the eye of a college tennis coach. Story
