    I knew Lar Ulrich, drummer for Metal Band Metallica, was an avid tennis player, but I didn't know he actually attended Bollettieri Tennis Academy when he was 16. His father was also a tennis pro, the oldest to play on the Davis Cup at a young age of 48!!!

    didnt see the article, but that would be torbin ulrich (the dane) who is the father and he was the zen tennis guru of days gone by. i got a kick out of seeing an ad for a new Bollettieri camp opening now that combines surfing with tennis and Bollieterrrriririririr's son runs it and he looks like Nick but has these long golden locks.

    Doesn't he live next door to Roddick? (Or have a house next door to one of Roddick's houses...I doubt they really "live" anywhere).
