Hi, I'm Chris Lewis, 1983 Wimbledon Finalist and the owner of Tennis-Experts, which is located in Irvine, California, where our store -- The Woodbridge Tennis Club Pro Shop -- has served the Irvine community for the last 16 years.
With over 45 years of tennis experience, you could say that my whole life has revolved around tennis, and you'd be right.
I grew up playing with classic racquets like the wooden Wilson Jack Kramer Pro Staff. I was in the stands when Jimmy Connors used his aluminum Wilson T2000 to beat Ken Rosewall in the 1974 Wimbledon Final. I was playing the Wimbledon Junior final the following year in 1975 (I won) at the same time Arthur Ashe used his famous Head Competition composite racquet to beat Jimmy Connors in the Men's Final.
I was right in the middle of the radical technological changes that changed the game in the early eighties. As it turned out, I was the first male player to reach a Grand Slam final with an oversize racquet, the Prince Original Graphite, a modern classic that is still made and sold today (yes, right here in this store) -- and I was also one of the first players to wear custom made grass court shoes at Wimbledon. (Bjorn Borg was the first.)
