Regentville Tennis Players Luis

Luis is clearly one of the most colorful characters in the Regentville tennis team. A guy with great knowledge and with intimate knowledge and insight to the game of tennis, I can always readily rely on him for information on tennis and much about anything else. A seasoned traveler as he has worked in so many different continents, Luis had his early tennis grounding in the US and in the Philippines. A Filipino national who used to work in Singapore in the Telco industry as a consultant, Luis has traveled the world and experienced the many surfaces of tennis. From the European hard clays to the US hard courts he has played on them all. His younger brother had the potential to turn pro at an early age but choose to pursue a different path in life.

Luis used to play competitively during his younger days in college in the US and was in the college team. Here he had suffered a serious fracture in his leg that required metal plates and rivets to be inserted into his leg and knee. It promptly ended his competitive tennis days. I had the pleasure of knowing Luis when he was transferred to work in Singapore. He soon became a regular in the Regentville tennis fold. With his intensity of play and easy going nature. Luis is an integral part of the team and a well liked amongst the players. Luis had started playing more seriously when he was in Singapore as much of his injuries were healed by then. The local weather also did not put any strain on his joints that used to cause him problems during the European winter months.

Since Luis had played competitively before he had all the arsenal of a top player available to him. His main weapon of choice is the hefty Tecnfibre T Fight 325 which he wields with absolute precision and power. He absolutely loves to play this racquet with the Luxilon Big Banger strings that he claims provides him the spin he requires. Luis plays with an extreme western backhand grip which he had picked up when playing on the Red Clay in Europe. His best shot would be clearly his double handed backhand which is almost impossible to return when he nails it. He can also find some ungodly angles with his double handed backhand that clearly has some very wicked spin imparted on his shots. Besides that, he is fast on the courts and trying to wear him down by having a baseline rally with him would be definitely not a good idea. To top that up, Luis has a great serve and a consistent forehand that will keep his opponent rooted to the back of the courts waiting to nail that double handed backhand of his.

Luis due to work commitments has currently left Singapore for at least half a year and would be back in Singapore sometime in August 2007 at least that what he told me ;) He is clearly an important team member in the Regentville tennis team and a great asset to have in terms of providing us a lot of valuable information about playing tennis at the highest level. Luis will be clearly missed by his team mates in the Regentville condo and we await for his return soon to be able to play more competitive tennis with us soon.
