E.J. “Terry” Kahn III has once again packed his tennis racquets and sense of humor off to the John Newcombe Legends Week in New Braunfels, Texas. As in two previous years, he has been recruited onto Fred Stolle’s Dunnies team?something of a surprise given that Fred Stolle hates to lose and the Dunnies have never won with Kahn on the team. That’s?a record he hopes to reverse.
Ego aside, however,?Kahn’s principal incentive for returning can be traced directly to a new recruit to the Legends coaching staff: Rod Laver, the only man ever to win all four Grand Slam tournaments in the same year not once but?twice. Kahn joins more than 100 other men who have signed on for the five-day?testosterone-fueled festival of tennis, barracking, off-color jokes, and?drinking, led by such legendary players as John Newcombe, Fred Stolle, Roy Emerson, Owen Davidson, and of course Rod Laver. Terry will be filing reports almost daily at Newks Legends 2014
