Zack Fleishman
Anyone else hear about this guy? I know he qualified for the AO and took big man Dick Norman to five sets, and just this past week he won Ho Chi Min Challenger in Vietnam.

Re: Zack Fleishman
I've heard about him a lot and seen him play a couple times. He has the most bizarro service motion ever but he's decent, has potential for sure. I saw him upset vinnay ice last summer in LA, he had major crowd support and seemed like a super nice kid :)

Re: Zack Fleishman
Kid? He's older than you Deb. :lol: He just had his 26th birthday on Friday.

Zack grew up in So Cal, it seems he always plays well in tournaments around there. He spent one year at UCLA, then went pro. Winning Ho Chi Minh gave him the highest ranking he's ever had. I first met him in 2003 in LA, spoke to him again in 2004 after he blew out his ankle. He came to the Sacto Challenger late last year, so we were able to sit and chat for a while, which was nice. I have a lot of respect for Zack because he takes his tennis seriously, but it doesn't seem to consume his life. He seems like a really smart guy too.

He's involved with I think that is going to evolve into an academy or something at some point.

Re: Zack Fleishman
Yay for Zack, those are impressive scores. I wonder if he just likes the conditions down there.

Zack has now qualified for Wimbledon without dropping a set.

Q1) d. David Brewer 6-3 6-2
Q2) d. Pablo Andujar W/O
Q3) d. Frederico Luzzi 6-1 6-3 7-6(4)

Zack could do some damage at Wimbledon with his huge serve, good luck in the main draw. :woohoo:
