Back at the end of January we witnessed history in the making. Former #1 Doubles player in the world Jared Palmer participated in his first Platform Tennis NRT and did pretty well. Jared teamed up with Juan Arraya and reached the semifinals at Atlantic Classic. They fell short in the semis at the hands of Easterbrook-Jonason after beating Calwell-Cordish and 2011 National Champions Mark Parsons and Mike Stulac.

Many players have described Jared as the best first-year player ever. He may be just that and perhaps even more.

Hopefully he will continue playing in more NRTs so everyone will be able to enjoy his talent. Rumors say a few of the top players have asked him to play together in the upcoming season.
