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.
