Re: Todd Paul's Official Thread

One of my favorite players was Andrew Hamar. You never knew if he would get killed, win easily, or(most of the time) win the 1st easily then give away the 2nd then put all the pressure on yourself in the 3rd by being the deciding match
Great player though and he saved the team in the NCAA's vs Clemson!!

Re: Todd Paul's Official Thread

No, I live in DC now, so I can't get down there. Big matches this weekend though.

Andrew is one of the greatest people I have ever met flat out. He is incredibly nice and kind.

I always thought he put a lot of pressure on himself because he came in with Todd who had so much more success, but Todd never won a match as big as that Clemson one. Rushing the court has never been so fun. That was easily the athletic highlight of my four years at Wake, including winning the conference title in football that same year.

Re: Todd Paul's Official Thread

I remember that amazig day. I was out of town but somehow perfectly timed getting on a computer in Durham right as Hamar was in that epic tie-break(I watched the score-tracker). I knew it would be a perfect story for Andy to win that t-break and he did!! I wish I was there but it was great. I actually met Andrew once too. Cool guy. His match point is actually on youtube and I watch that a lot. Great story!

Re: Todd Paul's Official Thread

Yes I plan on attending the Ohio State match this weekend. I hope Parr/Forman can get a doubles win to prove themselves as the best doubles team. I will give you some feedback on that match. SHould be great. Great chance for the Deacs!

What you missed then was a few points earlier in the tiebreaker. He was actually down a match point (6-5 maybe) and he hit a ball real short. The Clemson player hit a deep approach shot to his backhand and was at the net before Andrew even hit the ball. Then, Andrew uncorked a backhand crosscourt passing shot that any player on the planet could only dream of. I am not even coming close to joking that it is one of the three best tennis shots I have ever seen hit considering difficulty and situation.

Yeah, absolutely.

Here is actually a picture from that night.



I am on the left, and another really good friend of ours is on the far right. Between the rain delays and sweating, I think that was my third set of clothes that day/night. Let me know if the picture doesn't show up and I'll move it to Photobucket.

Re: Todd Paul's Official Thread

Omg, you seem vaguely familiar somehow(I think)
I can see it, great pic! How did you know Hamar so well?? And I have seen that guy on the right to. Also, I watched Andrew Brasseaux play in a match this year at #1. He looked great and he won like 1 and 1. Great player, really developing.

Re: Todd Paul's Official Thread

Zinner's wife has to be the Deacs #1 fan. The #2 fan is that loud-mouthed big guy that is really annoying and gets under the other teams skin. Know who I am talking about?

Andrew and Todd lived on my freshman hall and I was friends with them for four years. Bill, who is on the left, was also on our hall and lived with Andrew and Todd in the "tennis house" our senior year.

I was at most matches my four years, so I'm sure we probably saw each other quite a bit.

Yeah I know who you are talking about, but I have no idea who he is. I think I asked the guys once, and they said he was just a local guy from Winston-Salem that just loved tennis and really got behind the team.
