...Safina has bailed on the entire event. She flew to Doha, posed for pictures (wearing some of the most garish makeup and the most god-awful black outfit I have ever seen), went out on court, posed with Jankovic, warmed up, played two games, and then bailed. She said that her back was hurting. To quote her, “My body just gave up, and I couldn't handle the pain anymore”.… Continue

...And now comes word that Andre Agassi is about to share his deepest darkest with us all. Thus, in keeping with the way celebrity memoirs are peddled, Andre has admitted to using crystal meth during the period in 1997 when his career sank in the toilet.
This is how you sell a memoir, Hollywood style. He did not spend years promoting appearance as everything,… Continue

It’s been kind of interesting to look at which small fry have emerged to positions of success over the past two weeks while the big guns have been preparing for the year-end tournaments. Mainly, this has turned out to be an exercise in confirmation of why the best players are the best, and why the remainder are the also-ran.

As you can see I have had tremendous drive to succeed as a player and as a tennis coach as well.I still have otherwise I would not educate myself on daily basis.
During the time period I was with that player under 14 whom I brought from number 10 to number one in less than one year I realized that if I want to bring somebody to professional tennis I have to start to teach him/her from very beginning.Why is that? By coaching that player I saw that is almost impossible or impossible to… Continue

I’ve always maintained that courtside coaching in tennis was a spectacularly bad idea. It has offended me at a lot of levels. For a start, I do not believe that all sports are created equal. An idea that may work well in one sport (such as mid-game coaching during a basketball match), simply may not translate well into another. Can you imagine a pair of figure skaters… Continue

In my coaching career has been a little bit better situation.My playing career ended with graduation at WSU.After, that I started to teach recreational players in one tennis club in Germany.As a tennis teacher… Continue

I had mixed feelings when I read recent news reports quoting Andre Agassi as saying that both Federer and Nadal are on the decline. Of course I gave Agassi the benefit of the doubt of assuming that he was only responding to questions asked by the media. But still I found his statement to be in slightly poor taste.
Although he was a member of the previous generation of… Continue
