Dick Gould & John Whitlinger Say: “Scott Lipsky is right on the verge of taking off and becoming one of the world’s top players in his age group. He has a tremendous serve with a lot of variation, and he has learned to use that to his advantage. He has incorporated a lot more attack into his basic game on serve, on return, and off the ground. When he gets a little more confidence in using the style of play his game has evolved into, he could be virtually unbeatable. Scott has great hands and is a great doubles player as well."
