The Players... Jimmy

Jimmy is a regular fixture in the Regentville tennis team. A secondary school teacher (multimedia study) by profession during the day and certified swimming instructor in Ang Peng Siong’s (APS) swim school every weekends, this mild manner, decent looking chap turns into a crazed tennis maniac when he hits the tennis court :) So beware of the one they call “Jimmy” Hmmm, nevertheless Jimmy is a passionate tennis player and really enjoys the game to the fullest. Being Regentville’s “PR Officer” you will see him organizing games or friendly with other tennis groups or individuals.

Jimmy’s game is mainly based on his speed around court. His tall and lanky profile makes him ideal to run down shots from ever corner of the court. Since he is really tall, he manages those quick and easy put away volleys easier. It’s not easy to lob or pass Jimmy due to his height and agility… Not one who out muscles his opponents through raw power play, his sheer determination, quickness and height makes up for this for this. Many players tend to underestimate Jimmy, but those do so at their own peril as his defensive shots can easily turn into a counter attacking move in a blink of the eye. His height also gives him a big serve from time to time.

The other thing with Jimmy is that he gets highly motivated and charged up during matches and the other I thing I almost forgot to mention is that Jimmy has the most important asset to a tennis player… His ability or rather talent to play “mind games” with you if you get distracted by what he says, that’s already one up for Jimmy. His dry wit and humor is already enough to bore you down :)

Jimmy’s racquet of choice is the Head Liquid Metal Prestige that helps him deliver the control and consistency required during fast defensive and counter offensive exchanges. His favorite player? None other that the 12 time grand slam champion the legendary Pete Sampras. Apart from Tennis Jimmy enjoys swimming, playing mahjong, singing, kids… (maybe looking for a wife) to have kids with :) His parting quote: “I am who I am! I can lose my game but will note lose my mentality!” Hmmm still trying to figure this one out Jimmy :)
