|DaC Tennis Sensation Wins Sutton Junior Grand Prix|
Dial-a-Cab driver Melvyn Harvey's (E87) son Richard is now back playing
full-time tennis following a stomach pull and back strain injury which kept
him out of the sport for two months. But what a way to make his return by
winning the under-18 Sutton Junior Grand Prix tournament against very strong
opposition over the Easter holiday.
Prior to his injury, Richard was at the Essex County Closed Tournament at Thorpe Bay, where he won both the Under-18 Singles and Doubles titles while also managing to get to two other finals at the same event!
Richard is now heading off to Cardiff for the Men's British Tour event.
But getting over the injury was difficult. Dad Melvyn told Call Sign:
"Richard's physio put us in touch with a guy who runs a clinic for core stability. He had
gone to Leyton Orient Football Club to help a player, so we got an
appointment for Richard too. We went along and after measuring Richard
in all positions, he has given him a programme of stretches and exercises
designed especially for him. He also now keeps a diet and fluid intake
chart. It was rather costly, but it has given him a personal programme for
his tennis and it could be money well spent."
Things will slow up a bit now for Richard while he takes his A-levels of PE, IT and Business Studies, but a full summer of tennis is expected from the youngster who no less a player than Greg Rusedski, considers to have such a promising future.
Melvyn explained to Call Sign how expensive it is keeping Richard on the tennis circuit:
"If anyone out there reading Call Sign knows of anyone
who might be interested in sponsoring a real up-and-coming young tennis player," said Melvyn, "then please ask them to call me. You never know, your passenger may mention something about sponsorship and perhaps you could tell them about Richard. My number is 07939 246 870."
