From a sitting position, 14-year-old Nathan Malnyk, a member of Harborfields High School JV tennis team, wheels around the court, not only keeping up with his standing opponents, but often defeating them. Malnyk is allowed two bounces before returning a ball instead of one. (Credit: Newsday / Chuck Fadely)
