bbbbb USGO 2013 Player Interview – Adrian Chang (VIDEO) (6/18/2013) - This final release from this year’s Player Interview series features Adrian Chang: a fellow GLTF’er and resident Canuck. I initially grabbed Adrian for a bag check but realized quickly that he would also be a great choice for a longer sit-down. I wish could re-shoot this video. From my first to my final shoot, I […]
USGO 2013 Player Interview – Paolo De Angelis (VIDEO) (6/14/2013) - I have a few Italian friends (i.e. Italian from Italy) and have always loved their expressiveness.

USGO 2013 Player Interview – Jarrett Zarate (VIDEO) (5/30/2013) - Jarrett Zarate, a USGO participant from San Diego CA, caught my eye early on at this year’s tournament. Sure he’s tall and good-looking, but that’s not what got my attention. Every time I saw him I couldn’t help but think, “Marinko Matosevic!” I didn’t find anyone who agreed with me (and Jarrett had never even […]
USGO 2013 Player Interview – Matt Henry (VIDEO) (5/29/2013) - While doing bag checks at this year’s USGO, it occurred to me that I might as well take this opportunity one step further and learn more about the participants in this year’s tournament by doing a more formal interview. Matt was the willing volunteer for my first bag check, and a fitting choice for my […]
A Chat With USGO 2013 World Team Tennis Coordinator, Gordon Crenshaw (VIDEO) (5/27/2013) - A unique aspect of the United States Gay Open (USGO) is the inclusion of a World Team Tennis event in lieu of mixed doubles (or no mixed play at all). Over the years, this WTT event has been a great way to integrate the men and women in a team format that’s designed specifically for […]

Craig is one heckuva a low-key/friendly guy, and I had a great time […]
