He immigrated to the U.S. as a child, became a citizen, was picked to be groomed within the USTA’s Junior development program (only offered to Americans), went pro and reached top 40, then suddenly reverted to playing for Russia when he couldn’t crack into the DC lineup. This is after literally thousands of dollars raised by USO ticket sales and USTA membership fees had been invested in his development by the USTA. The organization threatened to sue him and so a settlement was reached for Bogomolov to repay them $75K.im not familiar with the story but how is this even an issue? if he isnt a citizen of a country (usa) how could he play for them even if he wanted to
for example if someone travel to spain to train at the nadal acadamy from another country then turn pro are they suppose to play for spain well no right they still play for their own country
I hear you...but he's just taken set 2. Can he keep the play going, or is he going to falter?The thing about Felix is even if he wins the first set I have no confidence that he will win the match. For me all of his matches are up in the air until the end of the match!
