Re: Rhyne Williams

Rhyne won 67 64 76 saving match-point on Austin's serve @ 5-3. I'm very happy to see him fight hard to get back into the match. Really wanted him to win since this is his home tournament. He made the match a lot harder than it should be though. Like the commentator said, Rhyne needs to be more patient and dictate more from the center of the court. The match was really on his racket.

Re: Rhyne Williams

I hope that Rhyne is open-minded and will consider hiring a more experienced coach. I know that he and Chris are cousins and best of friends, but I'm not sure that Chris has the experience to take him to the next level. I would like to see Rhyne take the Jack Sock's approach in the coaching department.

Re: Rhyne Williams

Rhyne Williams downs Austin Krajicek, 6-7, 6-4, 7-6

Quote:
They’ve faced each other in junior tennis and in college and now in the pros.

It was another classic rematch Wednesday night between Rhyne Williams and Austin Krajicek.

Williams, former All-American at Tennessee, saved a match point in the third set on his way to a 6-7 (3), 6-4, 7-6 (4) victory over Krajicek in the first round of the $50,000 Knoxville Challenger at Goodfriend Tennis Center.

“Austin and I go way back,” said the Knoxville-born Williams. “We’ve been playing each other since we were 11 and 12 years old. … We’re good buddies. It’s not very fun to play a friend so early in the tournament. I feel like I was pretty lucky to get through that. I’m happy to be in the second round.”

Krajicek broke Williams’ serve for a 5-3 lead in the third set. A service winner gave Krajicek a 40-30 lead and match point. Williams saved the match point with a forehand winner and then broke serve.

“My forehand really let me down early,” Williams said. “The first set I could not find it at all, which is really unusual. My forehand is usually extremely solid. It took me a while to find it, and thank goodness I did. I was in big trouble.”

Williams had 20 aces and four doubles faults. He had four aces in the opening game and served an ace on match point.

Williams faces No. 4 seed Mischa Zverev in a second-round match this afternoon and plays his first-round doubles match tonight with Tennys Sandgren, his former UT teammate.

I tend to agree that he might need a new coach.

But what exactly is the Jack Sock approach?

Re: Rhyne Williams

If Williams wins tonight, I think he gets to the finals.

Hire a well known coach like Joakim Nystrom.

He was in that USTA player development program for college players before he turned pro, and he was a practice partner for the Davis Cup. So, Pat Mcenroe and the gang certainly are aware of his potential, I'm surprised they haven't nudged him in that direction.

Re: Rhyne Williams

Lost 36 46. This match showed his lack of experience. Rhyne needs to play closer to the baseline and avoid drop-shot when behind

With all of Rhyne's connections in the tennis community, it is hard to believe that he can't get a good coach. Why doesn't he just get his uncle to coach him?

Btw, interesting open letter from his uncle, Mike DePalmer Jr., to the USTA (2006)

P.S. My nephew won the 14 and under Orange Bowl last year under my father’s tutelage. But now the USTA has taken over the coaching and I hold my breath for his tennis Future.

Sincerely,
