I am thrilled to be joining Slinger and the other tennis stars and legends involved in this amazing new company. I love hitting with my Slinger Bag and think that it has something to offer tennis players of all skill levels. It also opens up tennis as a fun way to get in a workout without the need for a playing partner or coach. I’m going to be using my Slinger Bag a lot during my rehab over the next few months and once I am back playing competitively again.
