Watch out for Baker in tennis majors

July 5, 2012 - Burt Angeli
There might be hope for U.S. men’s tennis.

Brian Baker, 27, made a strong showing at Wimbledon, according to SL Price of Sports Illustrated.

“His dramatic rise, after missing a seemingly insurmountable six years of injury, is so mind-boggling as to be irresistible,” Price wrote. “It's the most intriguing U.S. tennis story in years.

“Baker's is a savvy, all-court construct, anchored by a deadly backhand and highlighted by a deft forehand volley. He knows how to place his serve and can gin it up to 124 mph.”
