I talk some tennis with UCI Senior Vatsal Bajpai ahead of the Big West Tournament to get his thoughts on the competition and other topics related to American Tennis. Also, we take a look at the Pac-12 Conference Tournament and I share a funny tennis story from a good friend.
Justin Thompson is a Southern California native who graduated with honors from Chapman University with a degree in Television and Broadcast Journalism. In college, Justin was named the Rookie of The Year and an All-Conference selection for the highly competitive SCIAC conference. Prior to Chapman, he competed on the national junior tennis circuit. A wrist injury cut his competitive tennis career short, but he remains involved in the SOCAL tennis community as a high performance program instructor at Southern California Tennis Academy.
