I pull for him big time as do i for Madison Keyes ,and other kids i beleive have a chance ,they are American and iwant them to sucseeed ! the rest of the so-called coaches and parents on here who are hoping they will fail are real winners.

I hope Jan is playing my son one day at the French Open or Ausi or Us in the finals showing how great our nation is through our children who weve raised!!
Interesting- you can judge how great a nation is by what athletes they have in the finals of one of their major events? I guess by that measure China, the old East Germany, USSR are/were great nations.

I really don't have a feeling one way or the other about the kid as a tennis fan. Wake me up when (and if )he does something major in about 10 years. Then I will take notice. Until then I can't figure out why we are spending so much time on him.
