Tennis great Stan Smith credits his rise to the top to time spent on local community courts in his Southern California hometown.   That and the invaluable 20-minute lessons every other week from none other than coaching legend, Pancho Segura, when Smith starred at UCLA.  Smith, who didn’t fuss with long practice drills or intense conditioning, shared these stories and other tennis insights with a crowd of nearly 400 at last week’s Rodney Street Tennis & Tutoring Association Spring Benefit.  The May 21st event at Wilmington Country Club was the most successful one yet, helping raise money for summer and year-round tennis and tutoring programs for scores of Wilmington kids and young adults.
