A little high school ball for my son Chad included sets vs. Bradley Klahn. Chad never played Stevie Johnson but I saw Johnson play in high school as well as college. That happened when I visited Chad for his tennis at both levels of play.
Stevie became arguably the best college men’s player ever at USC winning his last 72 matches. Bradley like Stevie won the NCAA Men’s Singles title.
The last two matches I’ve watched in the US. Open included these now fully matured 29 year olds. It was a special privilege to follow their careers and to watch them both again at their best.
