"I got hooked on One on One Doubles after trying it once. First of all, I think it is an excellent game for anyone trying to become a better doubles player. Having said that, I also feel it would be a wonderful way for juniors, or any player, to develop a solid serve and volley game, to be added to the baseline game most juniors play today. Playing in the One on One Doubles Pro Tournament was also a great experience for me. Great atmosphere and fun tennis!. Having slowed down a step or two in the last couple of years, it was great way to play competitive tennis without all the running." - Mikael Pernfors, 1986 French Open Finalist; ATP Ranking of #10 in 1986
