North Atlanta Tennis Academy

Mert Ertunga’s knowledge of tennis from the hip his ridiculous . This guy can go back years on a match and player off the top of his head. His knowledge of players is also incredible , he will literally go into the players ranked 150 and have extensive knowledge about them. Who does that. Saquib also has tremendous knowledge and his interview manner and style should be copied and emulated .
