MV's Rado rises to the occasion, wins singles title at league tourney

Mountain View High’s John Rado was at a distinct disadvantage, height-wise, when he took the court against Fremont’s Rick Zheng last week.

But this was boys tennis – not basketball – and Rado found a way to beat a player at least 10 inches taller than him to win the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League El Camino Division singles title April 25.
