Tennis playing and Tennis kinda-watching

We have decided to get Carter playing tennis and to see if he enjoys it. I grew up playing tennis and I started about this age so we wanted to get him going. He goes to the SportsMall and gets lessons once a week and he is loving it. He is always asking to go and he has had a lot of fun. He gets to hit the ball and run around with his cousin Necie and have a great time. So far so good. I guess though we should expect him to like it...he gets to run around with a racket and smack a tennis ball around with his best buddy and some nice women coaches. He is pretty pleased.

We went up to the University of Utah and watched the Utah tennis team play Utah State and it was a lot of fun. The kids watched for a while and then they sat down and played their DS games. Every few points though, the crowd would get a bit excited and yell out 'Go Utes' or something...Carter, while still playing would stand up, pump a fist in the air and yell, 'Go Utah.'

All I ask is that Carter will be as good as Rafa. Is that too much pressure?
