The Players... Apollo

Apollo or "Phol" as we often call him is Filipino and is an architect by profession. He has been working here in Singapore for the last two years and has been a regular at Regentville. He is one of the only players who has won an all Filipino club tournament organized by the Filipino community here in Singapore.

His favorite player is the current world's number 1, Roger Federer. But his style of player resembles more of the legendary Pete Sampras whom he emulates his playing style from.

He is right hander and plays with a single handed backhand. His major weapon is his big serve and flowing all court style. At the net, especially when playing doubles, his flick risk, half and angled volleys are a daily combination and he balances this well coming in with a huge first serve during singles competition.

His racquet of choice the hugely popular Wilson N-Code N61 95, strung at 60 pounds. Being more of a traditional huge serve and volley player, his previous and current racquets were all conventional mid sized framed ones. Previous to this, he was using the Wilson Pro Staff Tour 95.

The second photo on the right highlighting Phol's bio mechanics as he winds up and jump up into his huge first serve. Both feat are off the ground reminiscent of Michael "Air" Jordan as he floats off for a slam dunk...

Apollo is one of the most wonderful friend I ever had. I admit he's good in tennis but not in bowling which I'm good at. Nevertheless I can't say anything but he's a lucky man I cannot forget the time when i drag him to pretend as an actor.

been hearing a lot of this guy....can i have his email address? keep up the good work!
