Episode 02.01: Pro Tennis Player Lester Cook: Exactly how does it feel to be ranked 191st in the world?

This is is one of our favorite episodes ever and we’re thrilled that it’s our SEASON 2 PREMIERE! Lester Cook was a professional tennis player for 6 years. He won 8 professional singles titles and 18 doubles titles, reaching a career high ranking of No. 191 in singles and No. 175 in doubles. He competed in all 4 grand slams as a pro and participated in 3 World Team Tennis seasons. In our talk, we chat about what life was like on the margins of the ATP tour and how Lester came to have such a great perspective on all that he did (and did not) accomplish in tennis.  This was such a funny and interesting conversation about one of the lesser known sides of professional sports!
