TAD or Davis


Chip Hooper was only #4 for Gunn in its heyday but rose to #17 in the world

i just had a flashback to summer, 1977 and I played tennis every day and used a Davis racket and to determine serve: it showed either “TAD” or “Davis” on its handle depending, like a coin flip, how it landed or was held. (And Gunn was undefeated and approaching the national record for wins, 1970-1980, ten seasons).

Forty years later, I married Terry Davis, aka Terry Acebo Davis, so I chose TAD and Davis (plus I just bought this year a Head racquet, from Ken Arnold and John Swetka).


Terry and I in our ten year winning streak have never actually played tennis but we did recently enjoy a pleasant stroll, with Duffy, our ball boy, along The bluffs and beach of Sea Ranch
