Left to right: Tom, Mary, myself and TracyThis was an exiting tennis week for me as I competed as a tennis member at La Quinta Resort for a chance to play with tennis great and U.S. Open Champion Tracy Austin. I advanced to the finals and won my match with my friend Mary to be able to play with Tracy after her annual tennis clinic at the resort.

Tracy and I teamed up against Tom Gorman, La Quinta Resort’s Director of Tennis and my co-winner Mary. Tom was a Davis cup player and captain for eight years, and to this day Tom is the most successful player/coach in Davis cup history. Tom was also ranked #8 in the world in his professional playing days.

Tracy and I won our tiebreaker set on this beautiful Saturday morning. Tracy did a fantastic job giving the tennis clinic for La Quinta Resort guests of all ages and abilities, and, we hope to see Tracy back here again next Easter weekend. Thanks again Tracy and Tom for a fun morning!
