He lost R1 last week in a third-set TB. Did you get a glimpse of his game or do you leave the scouting to your coach(es)?
I was scanning the draw for a Futures tourney being held over at NBTA, Bradenton this week. It's on clay (Har-Tru if I'm correct) so it's a great early chance to ready for the January Florida swing. Did your group consider it as an option when planning your schedule?
Sorry it took so long to reply, I've been at the club all day throughout this week. He was tough, but I managed to hold my own.
As far as the future in Bradenton, I will not be playing as this week is the last tournament I am playing this year.
