Not only do I say so, and I know so...
Not a college player, but what ever did happen to DB? Did he get hurt?
Don't talk to a doctor/nurse that way!
DB has been dealing with injuries and somewhat surprisingly is working this season as a volunteer asst. coach at USC.
At least he's getting some solid practice in assuming he's cleared to hit. I've seen footage of him playing and while his service motion gets on my nerves with how awkward it looks, I like the way he plays overall.
Mackie madonald lost to Sangren again. in mexico challenger. he is starting to get owned by the journeyman. he needs to play better if he is to break into top 100
Mackie just can't get a break. he is playing Sangren this week again. Tanys is quickly making Mackie his pigeon
Blaz Rola (OSU, 2010-13) won the Tallahassee challenger Saturday.
Since climbing to #78 ATP ranking 2 years ago, Blaz had fallen to 300.
Would love to see this win mark a turning point for Rola.
I wonder who would win if Jason Jung played Mackie Macdonald?
Jason would win at this point. JJ is much much better player since his college days at Michigan. He is a seasoned pro albeit journeyman. Mackie has more potential though. he can be consistent top 100 player if everything goes well and continues to improve
I say M squared over J squared
Jarmere Jenkins of UVa retired recently due to injuries. I am pretty sure Clay Thompson of UCLA retired about a year ago. Mitchell Frank also had surgeries post-UVa and I believe he is now an assistant coach at George Mason.
Any other retirements recently?
Clay Thompson is still playing. I think he retired in September, but then got a sponsor Tenacity who he works for, and started playing again. He has played 3 Futures in CA in 2017 but lost early in the main draw. He lost in the first round to Mackie McDonald in Calabasas in late March. I listened to an interview of him-interesting guy-think his major was creative writing-definitely a thinker as well as a player.
Funny argument between Tennys Sandgren and the umpire this week in Cary, NC. The commentator notes that Peter Lucassen (former USC player and Ernesto Escobedo's coach) said good forehand and Tennys gets a warning for "coaching". Tennys Sandgren totally in the right here. He says "I live in Nashville, TN" and "Does it look like I have a coach?" lolll
Unseeded Norrie now in the final at Cary.
Clay looks fun to watch because of how enigmatic he is, but I imagine he's awful to play against. You never know what you're going to see from him, and if he's fired up and playing well that has to be beyond annoying.
Nah, Clay has thrown in the towel. His last event was the Calabasas Futures in March as you mention where he frankly got crushed in very short order by his former teammate McDonald 6-2, 6-1--and it wasn't as close as the score indicates (I saw the match). His current ranking is in the 1500s and he has not entered any of the 3 Futures events that are being played in SoCal that started last week and continue for the next 2 weeks. I doubt an 'active' player would skip the entire summer as well as events currently going on in his own backyard.
Wow thats terrible
So what happened ? was the penalty point get reversed ?? it looks like Tanny didn't have a coach so that was really not coaching per se.
Interesting. I have said similar things watching players I have no clue who they are.
I think I've figured out the new meta:
Sit close behind the player I want to lose and attempt to coach them in a loud and obvious fashion.
... by the way, does anyone know any good tennis betting sites? asking for a friend...
The task force will be staking you out later this evening. Black chevy tahoe out front. Bring them some leftovers, will ya?
I feel you. i am always screaming stuff like:
"Yeahhh, baby, keep approaching low to the forehand!"
"Yuppp! What a nice high heavy to the backhand, cmonnnn! More where that came from, right, sweets!?"
"You know it.
You tell the story.
You tell the whole damn world this is Claire Territory!"
"Roll onnnn you, Claire!"
Fight on, Mary!
Nedoess to say, they love me on the girls' 12s circuit. Just getting them ready for college tennis.
Back on topic...yeah, pro tennis....
That lineswoman treated it like a junior match.
The chair guy seemed like he Owed her money. Took her word and tried to take it to poor li'l sandgren. Chair guy seemed reverent toward Mike, though, who i assume is the td or referee.
