Jie&Zi went to Gilbert's tennis lesson in Beijing

Jie went to Brad Gilbert's tennis lecture in beijing yesterday.
The lecture is a part of Nike tennis trainning camp,Jie&Zi are sponsored by Nike,so they also went to the lecture,and learned some useful skills from Brad.
Brad once coached Andrew Agassi and Andy Roddick,he is one of the best tennis coaches in the world.
After the class,Jie had some communicaitions with Brad.She asked him how to improve her weak serve.
Brad teached Jie how to improve serve with a rugby,and showed Jie how to train.

thanks for the nice pictures.

I thought that the sponsoring contract was between the CTA and Nike .

It is a beginner's tip to understand a serve motion. Tennis magasine publishes this kind of things every year or every two years.

I guess it was part of Gilbert's Nike promotion tour. The questions were certainly already prepared and he came with an American football .

I remember that is Roddick.
Perhaps Brad was too strict to him and wanna control her spare time.
U know,Andy is a playboy.
