    Nice job on the article.

    You should do an article where you talk tennis with Double T, Trent Tucker, he's a big tennis guy!

    Or, with Justin Gaard, a KFAN personality who was a former two-time Minnesota state champ who played at Iowa.

    Also, Wii tennis is pretty fun.

    Keep up the good work.
