    Your Questions for Jon Wertheim

    Hey everyone.

    Sports Illustrated's (and Friend of TAT) Jon Werthiem has agreed to do a 10 Question interview with us.

    As you might have noticed from our banner ad, Jon has just released a new book, "Running The Table", and is in promotion mode. (I've read the book, and greatly enjoyed it). But Jon's willing to take questions on any aspect of the game (he has been covering tennis for Sports Illustrated for many years now), your favorite players over the years, about events worldwide,...

    If you want to list any questions for Jon, do so here. We'll leave the thread open for the next week or so, and then get them in to him.

    Re: Your Questions for Jon Wertheim

    I have always wanted to ask him this... I don't think it's an inappropriate question, but I defer to the judgment of the powers that be:

    Has there ever been anything you've ever written in your column that, later on, you REALLY regretted?

    El Jon,

    With your new book out about pool hustling brings a few questions to mind:

    Can you make comparisons between pool players and tennis players and other sports in general?

    Who on the ATP and WTA tours do you think would make the best pool hustlers?

    What led you to write a book about pool in the first place? Are you a pool shark in secret?

    How did you get into writing about tennis in the first place?

    In their prime, who's the better pool player? Federer or Sampras?

    Do you ever get angry letters/e-mails from tennis players/coaches/agents/organizations after you criticize them?

    I'm curious about the % of tennis mailbag submissions you can make time to read each week. If you read every one of them, I'm very impressed.

    Of all the personalities in the 2000 "Venus Envy" season , who did you find most interesting? most difficult? And what made them that way do you think?

    What do you think about the overall health of our sport? What are some of the changes needed to improve tennis? Which of the planned changes do you support or not support, and why?

    Re: Your Questions for Jon Wertheim

    Whose press conferences are the most entertaining?

    Do fans have a seriously wrong impression about any certain players, in your opinion - and who?

    How does Andy really feel about Roger? Do you ever see them talking?

    Any friendships on or between the tour that might surprise fans?

    Jon, I adored Venus Envy. Any more tennis books from you in the future that we can look forward to?
    It's hard out here for a Zuz.
