tennis news (during the off-season)

"Tennis heart-throb" Federer to appear in Vogue magazine

Scud plans to work with Johnny Mac for 3 weeks before tackling the Aussie Open

Pat Mac named Davis Cup pres for the next 2 years; sez he still wants Agassi

Graf to play for WTT in Houston

Cahill dismisses talk of coaching Federer -- for now

Tursonov out for 5 more months; back injury

source: www.tennisnews.com

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

No, Cahill is still coaching Agassi:

http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au...5E2722,00.html

Quote:
DARREN CAHILL will not coach the world No.1 Roger Federer, saying he is happy to stay with Andre Agassi in 2005.

The South Australian coach of Agassi for three years said media speculation he would link with the Swiss champion came from a common thread – Federer's former coach, Peter Carter, who died in a car accident in August, 2002.

"Certainly with Andre wanting to go through 2005 and beyond that as well, he's got no plans of retiring anytime soon which I think is good news for the tennis community because we still need people like Andre playing the game. The thing with Roger, a lot of it is because the press have put two and two together," Cahill, who coached Lleyton Hewitt to world No.1 said.

"They know that Peter Carter was a great friend of mine and Peter was really responsible for the upbringing of Roger from about 11 or 12 years of age. He coached Roger all the way through.

"So when Peter passed away and then obviously Roger Federer decided to go coachless this past year, a lot of the media put two and two together," Cahill told Seven's tennis program Slam yesterday.

The fact Agassi, who turns 35 in April, is not considering retirement also means Cahill is not interested in other coaching appointments, although that was not always the case after linking with Agassi in February, 2002.

"To be honest, I didn't know how long the job was going to last," he said.

"I went across when he was 32 years of age and I didn't know if it was going to be a six-month job or a one-year or two-year job. But I'm still here and it's three years later.

"He's totally committed to 2005 and beyond.

Re: tennis news (during the off-season)

woo hoo mark and mac working together again!!!

McEnroe mentioned mark on his talk show the other night... appears they are getting along well!

Mac is a straight talker, no bullshit, which is exactly the type of person mark needs around to get his head sorted.

I hope Mac is helping Mark make sense of his talent and teaching him to work hard, he needs someone to give him a good kick up the arse!

go MARK 2005!

McIngvale says fans, TV deserve better
Westside owner has different ideas on promotion, field for Masters
By DALE ROBERTSON
Copyright 2004 Houston Chronicle

If Jim McIngvale were the king of tennis like he is the king of discount furniture, there would be big changes made in the way the ATP's Masters Cup works.

The weakest links
McIngvale noted that only two of the matches went three sets, and neither Argentine clay-court specialist, Guillermo Coria and Gaston Gaudio, brought much to the table.

How much more exciting would it have been if, for the first match, Andre Agassi had been across the net from Roger instead of Gaudio?"

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Thanks for the articles.
