Todd Martin Development Fund

For those of you who don't know, Todd Martin is an American ATP touring professional who reached a world ranking of #4.  Martin is currently competing on the Outback Steakhouse Senior Tennis Tour and holds the world #1 spot.  He also competed at the college level at Northwestern University where he played #1 for two years before turning pro.  He is an inspiration and role model for all the junior American players that would like to compete at those levels.

He will be holding a fundraiser clinic tomorrow, 2/7/09 at Deer Lake Athletic Club from 11-1pm.  All proceeds will be going to the Todd Martin Development Fund. I have the pleasure of helping with the clinic along with my fellow club pros.  I am honored and humbled by a man that has achieved so much in the world of tennis and hope I can get a picture or two, or maybe an autograph.
