Tory Fretz can only watch as people play tennis at Palm Desert's Jackie Cooper Tennis Academy. She was a women's tennis pioneer in the 1970's. But, then, last October, Tory got hit by a valet driver at the Fantasy Springs Casino parking lot. She was there meeting friends, tennis legends Billie Jean King and Rosie Casals, for a concert.
