Ali was introduced to me and the American Business Group of Jeddah (ABJ) Tennis Team in 2009, by another member of the AB]. After trying out successfully for a spot on our team, Ali immediately joined ABJ and since 2009 has played weekly with our team and in each annual competition that is held between AB) and our British counterparts, the British Business Group of Jeddah (BBG). In the time Ali has played on our team, a team I captain, he has lost only one match, winning all matches with a steadily improving doubles game. Ali is first and foremost a Singles player, but he has learned to become a solid doubles player, Mixed Doubles in particular. He and his Mixed Doubles partner, Nadia Abu Elsaud, have been undefeated in tournament play for the past 4 years, having also just won the 2013 annual Raytheon Tennis Sport Challenge. In the time I have known Ali, he has also become interested in coaching and has taken on some students to teach and train the past 2 years. If Ali were able to stay in Jeddah I would gladly undertake to mentor him into the United States Professional Tennis Association. All of us on the ABJ Tennis team of Jeddah will be sad to see Ali leave Jeddah, and it is our hope he may one day relocate back to Jeddah. In the meantime, | am sure Ali will be looking for a tennis club or group to join. I respectfully request that you afford him every courtesy and consideration. He is an excellent player and a wonderful person. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me on momelotti@yahoo.com
