What does Alt mean? Alternate to play in sectionals? Anyone know who his instructor in Florida is? Interesting he plays lefty (righty in tennis) and Nadal plays golf righty, tennis, lefty.

That's exactly what it means, he's an alternate to get into sectionals if somebody bails.

That's awfully impressive.  Modern professional tennis requires an enormous amount of time and dedication, and to be that good a golfer simultaneously is astounding.  Remember that tennis isn't like golf.  Winning six ATP tour events and reaching the QF's in three of the four slams isn't something you can do as just another guy on tour.  There are no Shaun Micheels in tennis.

And he had to deal with health issues - his heart.
