ATP University Class of 2011



Quote:
There were 17 graduates from the ATP University programme, which was completed on Saturday, 19 March at the Mayfair Hotel & Spa in Miami.

The ATP University is an informative and interactive workshop consisting of classroom presentations by ATP executives and industry specialists. The curriculum provides a thorough knowledge of ATP operations and the skills necessary for a productive and lasting career.

The ATP University was implemented in 1990 to ensure that over time, professional tennis benefits from a more well-rounded responsible tennis professional. More than 790 athletes have completed the program since its inception.

Canadian Milos Raonic won the ATP IQ competition, a game testing the playersí knowledge of the ATP and the topics covered during the workshop, while Australian Greg Jones came runner-up.

Fast-rising Raonic, currently No. 34 in the South African Airways 2011 ATP Rankings having started the year at No. 156, said, "Itís really useful, especially for us new to the tour. Thereís a lot we picked up from this week and itís also a bonding experience with other players that we havenít met before.

"We come from all parts of the world so itís nice to get acquainted with them. If things go well youíre going to be here for a while so itís nice to get this stuff quite early."

Lithuanian Richard Berankis admitted, "A really great opportunity for us to be here and to learn so many things about the ATP. Iím really happy I came, happy with what I learned and hopefully I can use it in the future."

Michal Przysiezny said, "Itís very nice. I learned a lot of things that I think will help me in the future."

Tim Smyczek added, "I found it very useful, very informative. I feel I now have some tools to further my career and handle everything thatís going to come at me."

The uni with 100% pass grade.

ď On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

What up, Carsten?

So you're hoping to be on the tour at some point now?

Future top 10 material, what is wrong with you?

Wonder what this "university" could have taught them. Milos really does seem to know tennis well.

Obviously Carsten was there to provide his comic relief.

If Adrian would cut his hair to a decent length/shape he could be really hot.
