This morning I told you about getting lucky enough to get a lesson with a top hundred player. Little did I know how darn lucky I was because he seems like a pretty humble guy and I didn’t really know about all his accomplishments.
Rick Meyer was a career high of 85 in singles, but in the low 50s in doubles. Check out the note he just sent me telling me about the people he beat:
“I beat Nastase twice. Also Adriano Panatta, who won the French and Italian. He was #1 in Italy and 3 or 4 in the world. I beat Fibak, he was 5 or 6 in the world. Roger Taylor, semi finalist at Wimbledon and a top ten player as was Mark Cox. Both were #1 in England as was John Lloyd who I beat. Bill Scanlon top in the world. He beat McEnroe in 1983 to get to the semis of the US Open. Brian Gottffied and Ramirez when they were the #2 team in the world. Beat them in the French Open.
I also reached the round of 16 at The Australian Open in 1983.”
Is that awesome or what?
