    Retire and cry.

    Only 3rd round qualie losers get a possible lucky loser spot.

    Perhaps at least 17 players will withdraw prior to their first round matches, and Mitch will find his way into the main draw. Don't pack your bags yet, young man.

    Got to bar, order a scotch.
    Now decide, do you wanna lose a bunch of matches, or go find a real job?
    Easy answer. Practice harder, practice more.
    Play another big match, lose. Go to bar, order a scotch. Now decide, do you wanna lose to bunch of matches, or go find a real job?
    Repeat over and over.

    I've faced this decision many times, from roadracing to motocross to skiing to surfing, IPSC Pistol and Practical, windsurfing, and almost in tennis.

    ^Yeah, I was there, too, LeeD. Tennis, tactical operations, ninja academy (not in Japan, but that was the next step after my 18 months in Beverly Hills), Krav Maga and most recently, the javelin catch.

    I did not really have to deliberate with the scotchyscotch, but I did have to endure some long days as a teaching pro and evenings at the dojo.

    Long summer days (and nights) with over 150 kids in our program.

    However, who needs an excuse for a tumbler of Laphroaig 18?

    man, i hope the Aggies give this guy a break and get off his back. He made a decision with his parents (who are big Aggie supporters). Although he might not be quite as talented at the age of 18 as Jack Sock, but he is doing pretty well for himself in his first pro year. I wish this kid the best

    Wtih Krueger going pro, the Aggies got a bluechip player from UT to flop, and they still have a pretty loaded class this year. They are definitely a program to look out for this year and I'm sure with the success they will have on the court, their fans will soon forget about Krueger going pro.

    Harrison Adams just won his second round match at US Open Jr, knocking out the #11 seed. He will help the A & M fans get over Krueger.

    I find it interesting with Harrison that he flipped commitments to A&M during USTA Team tennis and Denton (A&M Coach) was the coach for the Texas team.

    He had nothing to to with it, because I asked both of them that's how I know....seems that he and Shane are very good friends and when Mitchel turned pro, Harrison (who had been teaming a lot with Shane at the Futures this past year) decided by himself that A&M would be a better fit for him. Denton had nothing to do with Adams's switch other than welcome him.

    Yeah, that's a very diplomatic response.

    First round of Futures F25 in Costa Mesa, CA, yesterday: #7 seed Jeff Dadamo beat Mitchell Krueger 6-2, 6-1. Krueger was given a wild card into the main draw.

    I hope there is someone out there giving good advice to kids considering turning pro and bypassing college.

    and what happened this week Clark? its not about one week, 1 match or even 6 months.

    Remember when Kudla started out on the tour? he had some losses in futures too.

    Decent week. Won 3 matches to qualify for future including a 7-6 6-2 win over Junior Ore. Then won 2 matches in the main draw, beating Mkrtchian 6-0 6-3 and former Wolverine Jason Jung 6-2 6-2 before losing a really tough 7-5 5-7 6-4 match to the #1 seed Bogdanovic

    Those are some good scores. Not just results, but the margins of the scores. The results are not that big a deal for someone who is supposed to be good enough to turn pro (perhaps none of the three opponents will ever be a very good pro), but the score margins on all three matches are encouraging.

    poor kid should have went to college. Could have learned some valuable lessons from playing in the Dawg pound, ones more useful than the future tour.
