Re: 2013 Cheering Thread

I'm so happy to see good aggressive tennis from Ryan. Probably the best I've seen him hit his forehand. Now maybe I can stop calling him a grinder I hope he can keep up this type of play instead of that pushing crap that I had to witness live in person last year

Re: 2013 Cheering Thread

Personally, still believe that Harrison can make his big breakthrough. Have decided to start using this site more, and seeing as Harrison is my avatar and all I decided to chime in on the some of the previous comments. Honestly, didn't realize that some people have given up on Harrison when he's still so young. I wrote an article this spring for Tennis Alternative about the upcoming generation http://www.tennisalternative.com/you...e--rn2320.html Unfortunately, the chart listing the players and their ages when they won an ATP match, challengers title, and futures title is not there anymore. But Harrison was the youngest out of the ATP current contenders that include that likes of Janowicz, Dimitrov, and Raonic to get a futures title, challenger title, and ATP tour match. If that's not promising that I don't know what is. I mean he won his first ATP match just shy of 16 years old, Janowicz for example didn't win an ATP match until he was 21!! And, even though he's struggling he's still in the top 10 of players 21 and younger. It's not like there are a bunch of players around his age that are better than him, which makes one think that future is still bright for him. On top of that, he has multitudes of experience over most players his age, he's played many of top guy's on tour along with all of the top Americans, many more than twice. Someday he will be able to pull off the upset, he's still learning! Each time he gets a bad draw, which is often, I like to look at the bright side. I realize that with those bad draws he's playing some of the best guy's on tour, and learning with every match. It will take take, but Harrison will be back in the top 50!

Re: 2013 Cheering Thread

I hope I can catch his match in Aptos where the stream is clearer and will be closer to eye level. Even though he was hitting well, I still have some concerns about his forehand.

Re: 2013 Cheering Thread

He just beat Sijsling handily, 6-4, 6-3. It looks like he may be out of his slump. With Mardy Fish out, he's got a real chance to make the semis here, maybe even the finals.

Re: 2013 Cheering Thread

Great comeback he was down 1-4 in the first set, he seem too be more aggressive since working with Brad Gilbert those couple week I think he should extended his coaching with Brad Gilbert

Team USA

Re: 2013 Cheering Thread

Saw parts of the first set, good defensive tennis from Ryan to win the set but man Sijsling was pretty bad (seemed disinterested, a lot of errors).

Ryan Harrison signed in the USTA's Jay Berger as his coach in Atlanta so strong chance he's back with USTA again

@TennisReporters this is true. Ryan Harrison was practicing at the USTA Training Center last week in Boca Raton. Source: my own eyes.
It seems like everybody is working with Jay Berger Sock, Johnson, Kudla etc.
