The World Headquarters of Racquet Quest, LLC was happy to welcome Randy St. Pierre and Henry Hamels for a visit!
Randy is a member of the Dunlop Stringing Team and is from the UK and Henry is the principal of String MD in Florida! Randy has been stringing racquets for quite a while and is always a source of good information…and he bought lunch!
Randy lives in a beautiful part of England so we are all invited to his house when the weather is better…is that right Randy?
Randy remembers stringing for a young player named Emma at a tournament in Nottingham when young Emma was in the 300’s world wide! Look at her now! Was it Randy or something else? I wonder!
Anyway it was great fun having these guys here and they are welcome anytime as are all of you reading this!
Many of our readers know Jack Anthrop, but I will tell you a little about him just in case you don’t.
We started working for Jack about six (6) years ago, at which time he switched to Ashaway MonoGut ZX. Since that time, Jack has progressed at a stunning rate, now with a UTR of 13.26!
Jack is using the Head PT113B Speed custom racquet and now a new fiber made by Victrex, a UK company that specializes in PEEK materials for high-performance applications which is the Ashaway MonoGut ZX and ZX Pro material.
But, the big news is Jack is headed to Paris, the one in France, to play in the French Open Juniors! Jack and his partner, Max McKennon from California, are in the main draw doubles!
Jack has a great chance to be in the main draw singles as well.
Congratulations to Jack and Max on this great accomplishment!
The World Headquarters of Racquet Quest was closed for a brief road trip the week before last and we are just now beginning to catch up!
But it was worth it!
The trip took us to Atlanta to visit family, Louisville to visit friends, Columbus, IN to visit family and Asheville, NC just because!
While in Columbus I had the opportunity to play a little tennis with our 2 year old great-grandaughter! Emma is not quite calling it tennis yet but that will come soon enough! Not once did she complain of loose strings or the wrong grip size, either!
Emma sure knows how to pick an outfit! She is well on the way to becoming a real tennis player! What more could you want…Head tennis racquet, adidas Stan Smith shoes, cool tennis dress…Wow!
Brittany earned the Silver at the World Championships event in Abu Dhabi recently and congratulations are certainly in order! According to those who were there the athletes were treated to a Five Star event! The best of everything for these extraordinary athletes is well desereved.
Brittany travels to all events (bravely) with three (3) racquets strung with Ashaway MonoGut ZX Black at 46 lbs (20.9kg)! I know some players that will not go to the local courts with fewer than six (6) fresh racquets!
