No? Then stfu USTA mugs, go bellyache elsewhere, not on my computer screen please.

And yes, Bogomolov has played under USA flag for several years, represented them long enough paying debts by that. I didn't see whining when Cecil Mamiit switched to Philippines.

Re: USTA: Bogomolov Must Repay Us, Exploring Options

the USTA has more millions than the FFT and Spanish federations combined probably and they are going after some journeyman for some peanut?
no fucking wonder they aren't winning shit.They never cared for this guy but the "help" he got and never asked him to play DC and now that he is playing well and deservedly so wants to play for a country that needs his help considering Kolya is worthless;Andreev is worthless and there is nofuckingbody else around?
I hope Karma follows Roddick;Isner;Querrey;Fish and that Harrison boy and that they have a horrible year in the slams and MS no matter the surface and I hope Alex whoops their asses

Trump Jr. says Obama plagiarized his quote, but not before he borrowed it from Obama and both president Bushes

if that's so then how comes the USTA refuses to pay any money to the Argentinian Tennis Federation over Andrea Collarini who decided to become a yank when he was 18? The argies invested thousands of dollars on that kid and when he decided to head north they were left with nothing but a thank you note from both collarini and the USTA.


double standards... double standards everywhere....

Bogomolov's rise has begun when he found cooperation with an Israeli coach, formerly on tour with Dudi Sela; Mamiit rise has never started.

Surely would be interesting to see it all.

Gomez said his federation made a "huge economic effort'' with Collarini. He then sent me a copy of another letter the Argentine federation wrote to the USTA asking for compensation. Gomez said the federation knew it wouldn't get any money, that this was sent only in protest.

"This is why we are calling upon your good judgment for the USTA to consider, on the basis of these facts, a goodwill economic compensation that allows us, within our budget limitations, to continue the development of young players in a country with a situation that is on the opposite side regarding the facilities on which relies your federation.''

McEnroe said the USTA had no intention of sending money to Argentina.
so now the yanks should better make quiet with regards to bogo

Re: USTA: Bogomolov Must Repay Us, Exploring Options

They care because it's Russia.

Bunch of old suits stuck in a cold war mentality.

I don't remember any fuss when Delic started playing for Bosnia.

nah, I think it's more the issue of his high ranking. Majority of players switch nationality when they're really regressing from career high, it seems. Bogo is an unusual case in that sense.

Re: USTA: Bogomolov Must Repay Us, Exploring Options

Who gives a crap about the USTA. The USTA has enough good players already as it is and they got the gall to harp on Alex, those bastards! What? Fish, Roddick, Young, Isner and all those clowns are not enough for them, huh? Alex wasn't gonna get a chance to play for the American Davis Cup team anyways. Besides even if Alex had to pay it back, he can get the Russian Federation to pay it all back for him since they're taking him. I wonder if Alex is good clubbing mates with Kolya and the gang? or if he drinks vodka like every real russian should.

You're overestimating Russian Tennis Federation

Re: USTA: Bogomolov Must Repay Us, Exploring Options

He could hide in Russia. It's not like the Americans can catch him there and make him pay, am I right?

Yes, they should here to be paying something I think. I'm not advocating double standards at all my good sir.

Re: USTA: Bogomolov Must Repay Us, Exploring Options

If they want financial compensation then it should be the Russians who pay it, as with transfer fees between teams in football. It would make a lot more sense.

But you can see from the examples in this thread why that is a precedent the USTA does not want to set.

Of course if it's true that Bogey signed some sort of contract then all this is moot. Highly unfair, but moot.
