Born in New Jersey. Moved to Florida in 1979. Was employed as a speech/language therapist for 40 years. I am married, have one grown daughter and a crazy dog. I have loved tennis my entire life. When I lived in NJ I went to the US Open every year. I got to watch players like Connors, McEnroe, Sampras, Borg, Lendl, Vilas, and Arthur Ashe. Now that I am living in Florida I go to the Sony Ericsson in Miami every year. It is there that I got to meet the great Rafael Nadal in 2008. What a gentleman and ambassador for the sport! I am a supporter of his and will always be. I want him to be remembered as the greatest player in the history of tennis. My dream is to one day go to Wimbledon or the French Open now that I am retired.
