Roy played at Illinois correct?
yes , Roy is still at Ill, he's going into his Sr year. He took off a year as his knees were so bad he could not play. He could run 10 miles a day no problem, just playing with the loading and turning into a shot would hurt too much to play. In that time off he became very spiritual, and healthy. He eats much healthier, meditates, runs in vibram five fingers, and lives for the moment now. His knees give him no problem now ( knock on wood )
He is wise beyond his age.
Lets face it at this level if you have a rock solid mental game it can take you far. Roy hits a huge ball and has all the shots, but his mental game is something to be hold.
Watch good things happen to Roy as he is very respectful for every aspect of tennis and life.
