That's exactly right. One day he will be top 100 and there wont be any forum for him and he will have a lot of fans. Then everyone would be screwed until December!

In this tournament, he beat 299th ranked and a top 350 player. This year, Todd also beat 214th ranked Michael Yani. Thanks for your votes!

Re: Todd Paul forum request?

Also, for some fun facts about Todd!! He was formerly coached by James Blake's coach Brian Barker. Also, he is great friends with James and practiced with the Davis Cup team when they played against Spain in 2007. The Brians said of him that he was the one holding serve in a practice doubles match. At Wake Forest University, Todd won the most singles matches (107) in school history. Todd also recently won a futures doubles title at the end of the year.

^It's never too late. Look at Julie Ditty on the women's side. After years of trying, she finally cracked the top100 at 29 years old in 2007.

Not at all. 22 years-old is young for a college player actually. In the shpae he's in, age won't affect him. If age is an issue, he will already have made his marks.

You can request a forum every four months, when the requests forum is opened.

Re: Todd Paul forum request?

We've got people in the top of the world who win tournaments who don't even have forums, who have active threads with hundreds of posts and more, I'm sorry but you can't expect the admins to decide to give this guy a forum.
