#1 Coach: Interesting debate here. I have come around closer to your position. The rallying cry, including from me, was he needs to do something in a big junior event. Well, he did. Made a deep run at the OB. Beat top players along the way. It seems no mattter what he does, his critics keep moving the bar. Keep comparing him to Nadal. That's OK. But why not compare him to the guys that cracked the top 100 at age 25+ Soeda, Russell etc. Players develop different and big guys historically develop later- Isner, Anderson, Karlovic. All the junior stuff means very little- it's now all bout getting his feet wet in the Futures. Don't expect big results right away. Takes everyone time to adjust. He's got 14 months before worrying about college. Let's see what happens.
