He's such a great player -- good enough for even Roger to invite him to train with him in Dubai a couple offseasons ago -- but that height will always be an issue.
Story on Berankis with some background on himself and his coach -- really charming relationship between the two, and a super sweet kid...
Great read. Short of leaving me verklempt. Like Berankis even more now. In 2-3 years, we'll probably lose Ferrer to retirement, this kid has his heart for sure. His score against Murray was not indicative of how he played.
