Being a good friend of Vic's I would just like to clarify some misconceptions of the man. 1. Vic who just turned 79 is probably in the lab studying biomaechanics (but more likely the role of the brain) in sports science. His latest technical research uses APAS software which requires 3 cameras to be set up and a grid to be placed on the court before filming. He has done this at many recent pro tournaments. The software was originally created to detect patients faking injury for insurance fraud. It can calculate every angle, speed and trajectory of a player. So if you think he's old school trust me he is sharp as a tack and on top of what's going on. But he is beyond how to hit a tennis ball. Vic is good friends with John Neednogle who is the first scientist to make a connection between braintyping and motor skill. He currently works for the Boston Celtics, helping them choose there draft picks. Neednogle can tell what's wrong with your forehand by watching you eat breakfast. Check him out at braintypes.com. 2. He is a selfless man. Having suffered great unmentionable tragedies in his life including the loss of a beloved daughter he is humbled to the core and goals are to only make more people enjoy the game of tennis. He has no self-serving goals. He has spent more money on research than any major teaching organization. Having run the Vic Braden Tennis College in Orlando I'm in possesion of his high speed footage of Jack Kramer, Billie Jean King and Jimmy Connors (at this time filming high speed cost about 100 dollars a stroke requiring mikles of film). 3. He recently started a tennis ambassador program where kids travel teaching other kids tennis, sponsored by the Mayor of Santa Ana. If you don't see him on the tour working with a pro player it's because his goals are more focused on changing the world. Although, trust, pros and there coaches are constantly in contact with Vic. In fact the Bryan Brothers' father Wayne accredits Vic with much of there success. In conclusion Vic was helping manage the tour when it was just a few guys putting on exhibitions trying to make ends meet. He has helped create the sport that every one here talks about. So you will not see Vic chatting on this web site because he has more important things to do. And if you would like to simply argue his book tennis for the future, let's use Pete Sampras as our subject. Who beat Roddick in straight sets in the 2002 U.S. Open when Roddick was 11 in the world. Old School I guess isn't so bad. P.S. Be careful with your claims to know Vic well as I have his cell phone number programed into my phone and will call to confirm.
