When I was getting my coaching certification at Van Der Meer's, I got to meet and work with Shadisha. (Because we're both from NY.) She is truly a sweet kid. I worked her like a dog, and she took it all in stride. The following week, and a tennis festival in Savannah, who is the guest pro? Shadisha. They were having people come out and hit with her, and next thing I know, she and I were playing doubles against another pro, and the best doubles player in Savannah. Now, she's making ME go for all the shots, and working ME like a dog, to get even.
She did it jokingly, and afterwards, we laughed about it. Interestingly, during the match, she told me she was no longer going to hit the the doubles player I mentioned above, because, and I quote: "That guy is just TOO good."
We lost the set, 6-4, and it was all my fault, but it was a joy to be on the court with her. She has shuch a great additude, a fabulous game, and I hope she goes far.
