    Re: Tennis Coaching Merry-Go-Round

    Totally agree that Azarenka can get back into the top 20. Missing the AO hurts those chances for this year, since that's where she's found the most magic.

    I think her best case scenario for this...
  2. Re: In case you are feeling insecure about your tennis game.

    For a 15k, there should definitely at least be a lottery, but there's also a chance that you might get in directly. Here's a 15k draw in the US from last week. It's in Oklahoma, and 5 seeds in...
  3. Re: In case you are feeling insecure about your tennis game.

    Yes, you can! You can get into the qualifying of less popular ones. That's exactly what I was trying to do.

    I signed up for five 25ks. Because the Spanish economy tanked that year, a bunch of...

    It's the very bottom rung. Literally anyone could get in. He had never played tennis before.


    Nothing. He had to sign up for a tennis pin ($50 when I did it) and pay an entry fee ($40).

    It's surprising to me that 58.99% tiebreaks won is high enough to be 10th in the decade.

    I think it's a good move for her. He's a ball of sunshine, and that should help her relax. I think dating Monfils was a non-negligible part in her...

    Old Zverev and Mahut are probably perfect examples of what Townsend could do. Zverev peaked at 25th. Mahut at 37th. You could also look at PH Herbert (36th). Strycova (16th) or Lisa Raymond...

    Looks like she's currently ranked 82, with a career peak of 61. With some extra speed and confidence, there's no reason she can't get into the 30-50 range.

    These are two different things. Federer didn't play any Davis Cup, so he'll need an exemption for that. It's different than a WC for entry. He doesn't need to play a single match.

    For the men, Del Potro and Murray are the only possibilities.

    Del Potro is #123, but he's the Argentine #7. (The Argentine #4 is currently #76.) He has 22 titles.

    Dear Every Journalist,

    Please ask Federer if he plans on giving his coins as allowance to his children. "If you put your toys away, you get 10 mes. If you fold your clothes, you get 8 mes."

    I started following the sport in 2004, so Rios is before my time. I assume he'd have to be near the top of the list.
