URBANA, Ill. - The Hiltzik brothers have each been playing tennis since about age two. Even though they're two grades a part it makes for plenty of good stories.
"We once played each other in a local tennis tournament, and my mom told him to tank the second set so I would win," said Aron, a freshman at Illinois. H"e beat me 7-6 in the third set so it was pretty funny."
"I won the first set, and my mom told me to lose the second set," older brother Jared recalls. "I started crying and everything because I didn't want to do that because I was very competitive at that young of an age."
