The Players... Jayson

Young, Stylish Hard hitting and Brash... These immediately come to mind when I watch Jayson play. A second generation Singapore PR who is Filipino by descent, he is currently waiting be enlisted to the Singapore Armed Forces at the end of this year... Sigh :( there goes another one of our regular tennis kaki's (mates) ... As well as Jayson's stylish locks... :)

Jayson's game revolves around a glorious double handed backhand which he whips with astounding pace and it is this lethal weapon, that usually does the damage and sends his opponent scrambling from one end of the court to the other if the shot is not an outright winner altogether. Mixed with youthful energetic pace, deft masterful volleys and a wicked forehand, Jayson is a force to be reckoned with on the court. I can only foresee him getting better over the years since he is still so young, given such a raw talent at hand.


His racquet of choice is the Babolat Aero Pro Drive similar to that used of the "Spanish Bull" teenage sensation Rafael Nadal whom like Nadal, he wields with great effect. Jayson is the only one of two players in our Regentville group who uses the extreme western forehand grip which generates tremendous pace and top spin. I find this shot the most difficult to play and your sense of timing has to be near flawless. I really watch in great admiration when players use such an extreme exaggerated grip to hit with so much ease.

Jayson favorite player is surprisingly NOT Nadal, but the Australian Lleyton Hewitt whom he idolizes! Fortunately for us, Jayson only likes the way Lleyton plays and does not emulate much of Hewitt's on court fist and chain saw pumping "COME ON'S". In the picture above, Jayson imitates Nadal's famous "Bicep" victory war cry... "VAMOS"!!!
