Right now I'm at my home in Bradenton, Florida, getting fired up for hopefully a great two weeks of American tennis at the U.S. Open.

I've been getting a lot of questions about my status and why I'm not playing and I would love to answer those straight off the bat. My back has been bothering me off and on for roughly six years and the treatments I was getting to take the pain away have lost their effect. When I aggravated my back again this year in February, it has been a long process to get it pain free. The doctors told me that the best thing for my back would be a long rehab program and I've been doing that with Dave Hogarth at the IMG Bolletieri Academy in Bradenton, Florida. We both feel that my back has been making steady progress and I am hoping to be back in action early next year, ready for the Australian Open. For someone who has spent his life being pretty active, its been hard for me to sit around the house all day playing computer games. Thankfully, Tommy Haas, Xavier Malisse, and some other friends in town have been coming over to the house for ping pong and some light basketball games to keep me sane. (As a side note, in the beginning of my ping pong playing days, I was being owned by everyone, so I purchased a ping pong ball machine and now Haas doesn't stand a chance anymore. Malisse has all these funky spins so he still has the upperhand on me.) Ping pong and basketball only take up so much of the day, and I've been itching to get back out on the court, so the most I can do at the moment is teach some private lessons. Nick Bolletieri has also suggested doing some fantasy camps at the Academy.

Traveling has never been one of my favorite things to do, and that includes packing! Unfortunately that is next on my list of chores. It's going to be very strange going to New York without my tennis racquets, strings, and my normal six pairs of tennis shoes. On the upside, my bags are probably going to be a little bit lighter this year. Next stop... Tampa International.

Thanks for the update!

I used to love watching Dent play those 5 set marathons against the Australians at Wimbledon. I hope he can make a comeback.
