wow what a terrible way to see it.
It's not all meant to sound like doom and gloom. It is just the reality. Time after time, I will read something like, what happened to so and so? Why do they suck now? - Well it ends up he or she is a junior and has to start thinking about grades and internships, they have an injury (Klahn has been battling a back injury this year), or someone died, or they have a girlfriend, they've been sick, or their focus is shifting, or they are graduating in a month...They have more to their life than entertaining us. And now I read Klahn fizzled, frankly he's entitled. Good for him for giving Stanford and tennis those D1 years, he's been an amazing player, I say let him graduate without bashing him.
It's a shame that Klahn has plateaued, but it's a fact of life. Tough to feel bad for him. He's about to graduate from one of the top schools in the country with an NCAA championship on his resume. Can't imagine he will have too tough of a time finding a career after tennis.
This was just another example of the Curse of Fedace :twisted:...
naw .. it's the coach's fault.. both Ryan T. and Bradley K. stopped improving when they got to Stanford .. I would have bet anything that Thacher would be the next American pro.. oh well ..
... can't really blame the coach. The player bears responsibility for his own improvement. If he felt like the coach was holding him back it is his responsibility to make a change. If he really had pro level talent, playing at Stanford is not the reason he is or is not going to make it.
So wait are you guys saying that he has fizzled or that he isn't pursuing a career in the pros anymore? Btw does anybody know what time him and jenkins play today?
Playing right now.
From what I can tell, he may not be fully recovered from back surgery
He has played very well throughout the NCAA tournament.
So how's this guy doing these days? Is he still on track to make the top ten on the ATP?
118 in the world isn't too bad....
Klahn is solid and has a good coaching team behind him.
Brave showing in Oz under tough conditions in the Challenger at Traralgon,
he justified going down there as did Yuki Bhambri who got the win.
I know it is almost a national sport bashing Feddie/Nostro on here as he does
post some amazing stuff but BK could serve, smash, grind his way into top 50.
Klahn has the weapons but lacks flexibility.
If he gets a backhand pass when attacked, he will win more.
Boster will be working flat out to get him there.
Brad won the Hawaii challenger today and will be ranked 82 in the world from tomorrow! Great job Brad, you are now one of the best ranked American players, and the best ranked former college player from the class of 2012.
He will be the NEW US open champion.
Is there a year where you are predicting it will happen?
I would give him even odds at winning the US golf open as I would tennis
