Here is a little something I would like to say on behalf of winning the Spiritually Tough Tennis Role Model Award...

Thank you very much to Match Point ministries and Good Sports Magazine Show for presenting me the 2010 Spiritually Tough award. I am truly honored and humbled. To be honored by those I highly esteem touches my heart, and I only hope that my Lord feels the same as my peers.

Of course, Jesus Christ is the ultimate example of spiritual toughness, and my motivation for playing is to honor him. I try to do this by playing with an attitude of thanks for my abilities and opportunities to play tennis, loving my opponent by pushing him to be his best by my play, making the most of what I have been given by pursuing with joy and passion to be the best player I can be, and hopefully being in relationships with other players, fans, and coaches in positive, challenging, and loving ways.

I consider tennis an act of worship and celebration to God, and I hope it is just one part of an overall lifestyle of worship. I am motivated by the scripture in Colossians 3:23 "whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as if working for the Lord, not men."

Of course, as God and others know, I fall short all the time and will do so many more times. But I will try to press on and allow Christ to have his way in me, and I am so thankful that Christ loves me so much that he would bear the penalty for my sin, so that I would not be separated from him. It is in this spirit of thanks, gratitude, celebration, and joy in Christ that I accept this award.

Hope to see you all soon on the tennis courts.

Scott,
It was a pleasure to experience Match Point Ministries with you last week! May you continue to encourage others to Christ with your ministry. We are using the “autographed” devotional in our morning prayer time. Thanks for the gift. May the Lord shower you with rest and renewal!
In His Love, John and Sandra Collins.

      Dear Mr. Scott,
When my mom and I went to Orlando , I was an alternate for the Orange County Fall Sectional Tournament. Although I didn’t get to play, I watched the girls and then the boys. I liked watching the boys better because they were stronger players. What I noticed the most was that when the boys were playing they were commenting to each other like this kid named Alshon. He is #1 for the boys 10 and under. He was commenting to this boy that he was playing singles against (even though he was killing the boy) he was saying nice shot, nice try, and good rally and stuff like that. That’s another reason we liked watching the boys play better.

Now, when I play tennis he has encouraged me to comment to my opponents.

I had a very fun time at Boca. I hope Jasmine did too. I remember when I had my first tournaments 4 months ago and everyone beat me. I hope Jasmine keeps on improving.

Sincerely,
Cassie

"Dear Scott,
It was a pleasure to meet you! I came away from your tennis sessions with such an uplifted spirit. It was such a blessing for me as a parent to know there was a quality tennis coach who lived his Christianity openly and incorporated it in his time on the court. As a parent, I feel that Kyle gets exposed to so many beliefs that are the opposite of what we believe. I would be honored to have a godly man play a role in his life. I hope that in the years to come, we will be able to keep in touch. Thank you for the example you were to my son."

We just wanted to thank you for being such a great coach!! You're a born teacher - you have a great personality, patience and of course the best at teaching and playing tennis. Thank you for the opportunities you have given Stephanie. We appreciate all you have done."

"Hi Scott,
I just wanted to let you know what a blessing it was for my children to participate with you and your great coaches as well. What an honor for us. They grew in their tennis game and more importantly in the Lord. May the Lord continue to bless you and your family. We can't wait for next summer. I so appreciate the price break with 5 children!  May the Lord continue to use your life to bring Him much glory! We are just trying to finish filming Pilgrims Progress!"
May the Lord bless you and keep you! The Kielar Family
