Grayson Frazier and Trent Jones have known of each other since they were in elementary school.
As they both began to engulf themselves in tennis, both took similar paths, following in the footsteps of their tennis-enthusiast fathers, as they made the sport a priority when middle school rolled around.
That similar development has led to similar success.
"Doubles is a different game than singles," La Cañada High boys' tennis Coach Will Moravec said. "There wasn't a lot of miscommunication between them because they were both learning it at the same rate, at the same time."
Before they started learning doubles tennis, the two played against each other in sixth grade during a tennis camp at the Rose Bowl.
From there, their relationship grew into a friendship, after the two took classes together in junior high and high school.
Little did they know they would become a formidable pair, and turn into the second-most successful doubles team in La Cañada's history, according to Moravec, who has coached the program for 19 years.
