    Is Rafa a bit of a scaredy-cat?

    u know that if he just says he doesnt want to play, he gets fined from the atp. IMO Rafa has played a lot of tennis, done so much grinding to get to where he has been. Perhaps his knee needed a break, he took 3 months off....when it was time to practice and prepare again for the new year...

    Another one bites the dust....

    I dont know man, its easy to say that. But having been through the grind...I don't know if having money to play more tournaments would ever help someone whos ranked 800 get to be top 100. You either have it or you don't. Leandro Migani went from being unranked to being ranked top 300 this...

    Bellucci beats Federer in Sao Paolo, Roddick beats Murray in USA... loads of crap!

    Dont assume Brazil is a poor/cheap country anymore. a friend of mine was there last year around this time....told me it was the most expensive 2 weeks of his life. More expensive then the US for sure he said. And this guy has a degree in economics, he knows what he is talking about.

    Djoker practiced with Spadea before US Open?!?!?!

    Ive practiced/drilled with many mens top 100 players, and one top 15 player, handled their ball easily during the drills. It gets difficult when we play games to 11 just feeding the ball in, usually I can manage 4-6 points in a game to 11, but usually they are not trying 100% or they go for a...

    Federer wants 2 million euros to play Basel next year.

    lol 2million dollars is nothing in switzerland. Does anyone know how rich people are in that country? renting a 2 bedroom apartment in the cheap part of lausanne costs 2000 swiss francs a month, which is more then 2000 USD. that country is so full of money, and Roger knows it, I don't blame...

    How far can a kid go with hard work?

    you sound like a highschool coach. at the college level you need talent. Ballstriking ability wins big matches. Hard work is nice, but when you look at a college lineup....I guarantee that the hardest worker on the team is not in the lineup. he is what I call a RUDY! lol

    Another one bites the dust....

    haha obviously we dont get the full story. In a situation like this there are contracts drawn up, bonuses and ranking expectations. Could have been a 3 year contract...if he does not reach a certain ranking...the USTA stops paying his expenses, in which case he can change back to playing for...

    Boca Hp??

    the USTA is not supposed to care about education. They better not be wasting hundreds of thousands of dollars on kids to worry about weather they are educated enough. If I was Pmac, I wouldnt want them doing any school at all. they are brought there to become tennis players, not to play school

    What would be the Outcome of Stefan Kozlov vs Serena Williams

    ahaha Kozlov for sure. When Sania Mirza was at her high ranking a few years ago she paid some low level college guy to travel with her for about 3 weeks. The guy beat her easily, and he had nowhere near the game that kozlov has. His best ranking was 2 atp points.

    Way too expensive to get good competition. Entry fees are 75 bucks at a national, in france it cost 75 bucks total to play a tournament, including gas money. and in the states if you are actually a good player it costs even more. In France the young players get money from clubs and sections...

    WB Comments on Ltr to US Tennis Industry-PART I

    I used to to give WB some credit. But he is so concentrated on the juniors that he is missing the whole point. The us has a broken system, even with some of the stuff he mentions (I didn't read it all). Still he misses the point of players competition. We shouldn't be limiting our juniors to...
