NY Times article on the state of US Tennis developing pro players. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/05/sports/tennis/05tennis.html?scp=4&sq=tennis&st=cse I think with PMac at the helm and a new focus on including clay in player development, USTA is probably on the right track... or at least a better track then they were on, but we have to give them some time. Interesting to see comments from Fisher and Lansdorp- Honestly, I don't know so I have to ask - but who was the last great U.S. player that Fisher or Lansdorp developed or is currently developing. I know Fisher worked with Pete and Lansdorp has worked with a lot of pro players - but I can't think of big US stars currently out there. I'm thinking no body in the US seems to have the magic formula right now. IMHO - Segura's comments seemed a little out there too. Is an extreme grip really that limiting? Doesn't Nadal use a pretty extreme, grip? Seems like he can slice, volley and handle low balls. As for the low balls - seems like most the shots I see on the ATP bounce up around waist to shoulder hieght. RE: Segura - So US players don't know how to win? Okay - so just come up with the solution and we'll be all good. Must be easy right? Just my 2 cents - for what it's worth. What do others think? I'm interested in hearing different views.
