  1. Thank to you that I’ve been follow this kid since his fist win on ATP level…
    Keep on updating on your young puppy (Filip Krajinovic, Ajla Tomljanovic…)

    Can you comment on the ways evolve the carrier of Michelle Larcher de Brito and Nicole Vaidisova? I put so much faith in them… :(

  2. Great execution by Ryan Harrison. His return of serve was on fire and looked like Agassi reflexes at times. You could see the confidence, and I wonder if it came from his previous (Jr) wins over Milos Raonic. I hope he can show that same aggressive return against Federer; it will be fun to watch. Congratulations to Ryan and all that contributed to his development. This tennis addict says “Thanks for the entertainment!”
