As far as I know, AA HAS NOT confirmed for Kooyong...and if he does not go to Kooyong, I would not be absolutely sure that he will play in Australia.
And then we have the news from the Sa Jose tourney which Andre has played for a lot of years...it has become one of his "comfort zone" tourneys...fairly close to home (which he likes)...and he and Barry McKay, the tournament director are friends...and the early news out of San Jose is that the lead ads and newpaper promos featuring that have featured Andre FOR YEARS this year do not...he is not even part of the background...and his name is not mentioned...they are careful to point out that it doesn't mean that he isn't coming...but that it's VERY CURIOUS!!! He has won this tournament more than anyone else...people are noticing!
My stance is that I hope for the best...but I'm also prepared for the worst...
For a LONGGGG time, my interest in tennis was completely centered around the Fab-4...Courier, Chang, Sampras, and Andre...I think we're almost done. Thank goodness for football!!!
