I play Pine Tree because it is a fun tournament for a great cause. The most memorable part of the tournament over the years is hearing the stories of the children and adults whose lives have been touched by the Pine Tree effort. Pine Tree is important because it allows players, volunteers and fans in the tennis community to work together to make a positive impact that goes far beyond the tennis court. I am awed and humbled by how hard and passionately the doctors and physical therapists work on their research to find answers for their patients and community. Their impact is felt worldwide. They are truly amazing.
