Brad Gilbert visits Brooklake Tennis

On the eve of the biggest tennis tournament in the world —the U.S. Open — tennis coach extraordinaire Brad Gilbert cleared time from his busy schedule to put on a free junior clinic. The event was held courtesy of the David Kramer Tennis Academy at Brooklake Tennis.

"Every junior player who attended was able to hit with and receive individual instruction from Brad," said David Kramer, director of tennis at Brooklake and Brad's former junior-doubles partner.

Following the hitting portion of the clinic, Brad conducted a question-and-answer session. Then participants gathered around as he signed autographs.
