Re: Jan Michael Gambill

Jan Mike faces a qualifier in the first round of the aussie open but if he gets into the second he'd get federer

Good Luck to my boys

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

You know, when I was getting the info for my site and I saw that JMG had lost to this guy before, I had a very bad feeling. Obviously, I was hoping I was wrong. This is just not good, at all.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

Thanks Deb. I'm very sad for my biscuit, especially after calling a friend who was at the match, but I wonder if this will be the kick in the pants that he needs. I just want him to win a match before I see him or I will just burst into tears as soon as I lay eyes on him. That won't be much fun.

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

The contract expired and wasn't renewed. He told me in October that he had signed with Prince, but asked me to withhold the info. He let me put it on my homepage at Christmas. I think he knew for a few months that adidas would not renew. They also dropped Kiefer (which surprised me, considering his current rank) and possibly a 3rd player, but I can't figure out who.

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

Saw this today in tennisreporters.net
=======
Gambill looking for resurrection

By Sandra Harwitt, Special to TennisReporters.net

Back in 2001, Jan-Michael Gambill was comfortably sitting at No. 14 in the world on the ATP computer. Nowadays, Gambill is struggling to rekindle the form that led him to be an integral part of the ATP’s original “New Balls, Please” campaign, where they introduced the public to the young stars they expected to make a big splash.

The 27-year-old Gambill has won three titles in his career: '99 Scottsdale, '01 and '03 Delray Beach. After an iffy season at best in 2004 – he reached four quarterfinals but for the first time since 1998 failed to reach a final – Gambill was hoping for a fresh start here at the Australian Open.

Unfortunately, Gambill was unable to negotiate past Japanese qualifier Takao Suzuki, the No. 203 player in the world, losing the match 6-4, 6-3, 6-3.

“I have been working very hard to try and get my game back on track,” Gambill told TennisReporters.net after his defeat. “Obviously, I was not playing that well, but I played a couple of good matches coming in here and I’ve been practicing very well. I feel like I’m starting to play decent tennis. I feel 100% I can get back to playing the way I used to so I’m not going to let this be a negative for me.”

For some around the game, one of Gambill’s biggest flaws has been sticking by his father, Chuck, as his coach instead of branching out to hear a different voice analyze his game. But Gambill remains loyal to dad and was off to discuss the match after his interview with TR.net.

His parting words were to offer an explanation as to why he keeps on keeping on. “I want to prove to myself that I can get back up there,” Gambill said. “Playing tennis can be fun and not fun, but it’s what I do and I love to do it. I want to give it my best. You know, you can play sports now until you’re 35 as Andre [Agassi] has shown us.”

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

Thanks Deb. Loyalty may be admirable, but I have to wonder if it is costing him matches....

Re: Jan Michael Gambill

It seems like parent-child coaching relationships don't work that well. Look at the Williams sisters, I would say it very much hurts them, too, especially Venus. Didn't help Taylor Dent much... and the list goes on. It seems like the right balance of parental support and input yet the willingness to bring in outside coaches for their kids seems to work the best. but every person is different. And of course there's detrimental loyalty in other areas... one of the biggest things that really pisses me off about Andy is his fierce loyalty to a few tourneys who gave him a wildcard in 2001... now he plays the every year and some of them he should really give up (mainly Houston, but others too). I think that's cost him matches and especially ruined his clay court progress.

but JMG seems to have a good outlook on it and it sounds like his head is moving towards a better place... so hopefully he can work his way back. Where does he play next - Delray?
